I was poking through the links on Hammie's Blog (which is excellent) and I ran across a CafePress Store with tons of autism-awareness shirts. Some of the designs are visually atrocious thanks, in part, to the Autism Awareness symbol being comprised of multicolored puzzle pieces. Others make it work, though.
So, I'm flipping through the pages, nodding in agreement and laughing, when I run across a couple of Mercury In Vaccines Causes Autism shirts.
No!, It fucking doesn't. If you believe this to be true, please go to my post about Autism's False Prophets to get pointed towards some resources which use actual scientific studies to back up their claims.
Anyway, there are only a couple of those lame shirts among a few thousand cool ones. Here are some of my favorites:
My child has autism. Questions are appreciated. Parenting advice is not.
This is a cat.
I have an IEP.
I'm with neurotypical.
