Autistic Women: Why is This Still Challenged?
This is extremely frustrating for women on the spectrum. I was told that my autism was “cured” because I suddenly stopped having to go to speech therapy, and taking “special ED” classes before high school. The problem was that my high school didn’t provide extra help for free. So they said I was “cured” and therefore invalidates my difficulties that continued well into high school. I had no help and never graduated as a result.
“Women can’t be on the spectrum”
…OK, FUCK OFF!!
