While it is nice to see positive autism posts, I was wondering if you knew of the meanings and implications behind the puzzle piece imagery? Many people from the autistic community find it offensive because it contributes to the idea that autism needs to be fixed instead of accepted and helped, and many people find the puzzle piece imagery to seem childlike and contributing to the stereotype that people with autism are like adult children.

It is still nice to see pro-autism stuff, I just thought you should be aware!!

It's a symbol for their awareness campaign.
Ask them, not me.

actually, its the symbol for Autism Speaks, and it's a horrendous campaign that purposely demonizes autism and asperger's syndrome, and focuses on 'curing' autism through any means possible, rather than understanding it.
they claim to be all about listening to autistic people, but there are no autistic people in any positions of power in their campaign.
if you want to support a campaign that actually helps people with autism, check out the Autism Self-Advocacy Network.

I agree totally. I have Aspergers and every where I seem to go; Its always: "Can you change your Thoughts/Views in order to fit in with the rest of soicity. I'm quite frankly over it and wonder if people with Autism/Aspergers will ever be seen as normal; with a hint of quirkiness...
