Today is #LightItUpBlue day, launched in 2010 by #AutismSpeaks.  The cartoon above features "soundbites" from past "awareness" campaigns by Autism $peaks.  DON'T "Light it up Blue", DON'T Support Autism Speaks, learn why here: http://www.boycottautismspeaks.com/why-boycott-1.html


For those that can't see the image, the sound bites (being said by blue puzzle pieces, similar to  Autism $peaks' logo) include:

"You are why we can't have nice things and have any fun!"
"We don't hate you, we just hate your autism!!"
"Worse than Cancer and AIDS combined!"
"Anyone who puts up with you must be a saint!"
"Hands Down!"
"Mommy would have killed you were it not for your NORMAL sister!

The words are directed at three children. one is covering her ears, one is crying and one holds a sign that reads: "And you say that we are the scary ones"

Video clip that the "mommy would have killed you..." references (Trigger warning for a mother talking about killing her daughter, IN FRONT OF SAID DAUGHTER): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C7NTfZzS9b8 it is from  Autism $peaks' video "Autism Everyday" ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autism_Every_Day )
