Quote Me of The Day: Denis Leary

“There is a huge boom in autism right now because inattentive mothers and competitive dads want an explanation for why their dumb-ass kids can’t compete academically, so they throw money into the happy laps of shrinks . . . to get back diagnoses that help explain away the deficiencies of their junior morons. I don’t give a [bleep] what these crackerjack whack jobs tell you – yer kid is NOT autistic. He’s just stupid. Or lazy. Or both.”

I posted this quote simply to remind myself that this is the world I live in. Some people are extremely ignorant and comfortable and proud of their close-minded, insensitive views.

As offensive as Denis’ statement is, I’m glad that he made it because it proves how little many people know about Autism. One of my mom’s BFFs’ daughter has autism. She, too, got the disease from a vaccination shot. I love her so much. She goes crazy when she sees me, playing with my hair, giving me non stop hugs and talking so much with the words she’s able to squeeze out.

In the years to come, I hope more people will become better informed about what Autism is and how some children contract the condition. Many are just as ignorant as Denis is when they don’t have to be. Knowledge is power and Denis will get his karma.
