Dear Elon Musk: We Don’t Need To Be “Cured”

We, Neurodivergent folks, need to be understood.

A bigger issue we deal is being misunderstood and stigmatized by our wider culture.

There are Person-centered ways of dealing with mental suffering.

We are learning to expand our understanding, rather than seek out ways to eradicate differences from the norm.

We are living, breathing human beings with rich emotional lives who need deeper connection with other humans — not machines in need of being repaired.
