response to jenny mccarthy-ism statement
Any medical diagnosis, particularly a lifelong diagnosis, be it physical, psychological, social, comes along with a brief period of 'mourning'. Its perfectly natural and very human to feel self pity and pity for your child, and to also lament over,'what could've been'. But we, as strong mothers get beyond it, and go into 'fight mode'. We then proceed to advocate for, and enable our autistic children to be the absolute best that they can be. The fact that this dumb b**ch is faultering every mother of autism for having a very human reaction, is ludacris and speaks volumes to the fact that she shouldnt be the spokesperson for the parents of autistic children. Someone gave her the title because shes a D list celebrity. Her careers based on making fart jokes on MTV. She certainly doesnt speak for me.
