For more than three years, I have been airing my voice as a young autistic adult who sees his fellows on the autism spectrum, as well as those with other disabilities, as his brothers and sisters.
These three years have been a great burden for me, and I would just like to say this just to get rid of the pain and the suffering I have had.
I am sorry.
I am sorry that I have offended parents who do not trust their children to speak for themselves.
I am sorry that I called the causes of parent- and professional-led autism advocacy groups as “hypocrisy” and “bigotry.”
I am sorry that I urged my non-verbal counterparts to fight for their rights as humans.
I am sorry for the accusations and exposures I have made — I simply did that because I was bitter and can’t move on.
I am sorry for bashing Autism Speaks, Autism Society Philippines, Autism Hearts Foundation, and other autism advocacy groups.
I am sorry that I opened my mouth, or even touched my keyboard, in the first place.
I do not know what I have to do to receive your forgiveness. Maybe I should close this blog for good? Oh, yes. I will no longer post anything in this blog. I will have to close this down.
Please accept my apologies. Bless you.
Until then, cheerio.
Wait a second, who am I kidding?
Happy April Fools’ Day!
