Everything wrong with…stigma.

On You tube there is a series of videos called “Everything wrong with…” These videos feature a young man pointing out the shortcomings of everything from McDonald’s to Netflix. But one goes too far. The host comments on a toy called a fidget spinner. And claims that the gadget is said to help children on the spectrum behave better. Then shows the young man sitting alone on the sidewalk disheveled and with eyes that imply he has been up several nights. (pretending to be Autistic) He then refers to people on the spectrum as “Autistic screachers.”  Implying that, without the toy, a person with ASD would do nothing but screach and make life miserable for those around them. Ignoring the many warnings on the internet about the dangers posed by the fidget spinner.  This Ant=Autism You tube video is hurtful, ableist, stigmatizing, and unexcusable. I reccomend that everyone give it a negative rating. And boycott the man his channel and his videos. Until he learns everything wrong with…stigma.
