Mickey Rowe at Teen Vogue:
"Netflix's "Atypical" Was a Major Disappointment for Autism Representation"

http://www.teenvogue.com/story/netflix-atypical-autism-representation

In watching the show, I noticed that it seems to play into stereotypes that I’ve experienced firsthand that could have easily been avoided and that may present damaging information about autistic people. There is so much misinformation about autism in part because we nearly always learn about autism from non-autistic people, instead of learning about autism from autistic adults.

So disappointing. Given all the feelings I've been having recently WRT my autism, it's probably a good thing I wasn't aware of this previously. (And now I know not to watch it.)

You'd think people would learn already.

Also: I had no idea before this election cycle that Teen Vogue was so awesome. Have they always been like this!?
