Every time media reports about the abuse and/or murder of an autistic child, we are told not to judge. We are told to walk in the perpetrator's shoes. Most of the time, the perpetrator is the autistic child's parent.
But we have shoes too, and no one ever asks anyone to walk in the victim's shoes.
Help us speak out. Share this blog when you see people demanding that everyone should walk in the shoes of the perpetrator, simultaneously forgetting about the victim.
