One of Rion’s American friends sent along a story about a woman in Michigan in America and a nasty note she got about her son while she were shopping. It were because the boy were making noise while they was shopping.
Noise isn’t bad unless you’re somewhere quiet like a church or a library, or if it’s bloody loud like some kids can get sometimes. The news story said the young lad of six were going off like a fire alarm.
Story goes that the mum were quieting the boy by putting his shoe back on, and when she stood up again, there were a note on her bag what said for her to “buy that kid a muzzle.”
I doesn’t know if that story is true though. Stores got these here cameras everywhere these days and the mum never asked the store manager to look at them tapes they has from them cameras. Looking at them tapes, she could see if the person were an employee or a senior or just a regular shopper.
It don’t matter no way. By the time the mum were done with her boy, the person weren’t nowhere in sight so all that fire alarm screaming weren’t bothering that person no more.
I hate stories like this here one because it makes autistics look cheeky at best, and gormless at worst.
When people get it in their minds that autistics got no manners at all, they doesn’t treat autistics very well. That’s what’s happening to Rion McNeally and why we has to #SaveRionMcNeally. The #AutismAbuse he’s suffering isn’t right.
