“Not Everyone Was My Friend”: Sexual Assault & An Autistic Life – s02e01

Let’s kick off Season 2 of #AutisticAF Out Loud podcast… by taking a risk.

There’s not much research on sexual abuse of autistic children… much less adults.

Maybe funding sources aren’t ready… yet… to stop trying to cure us. And study our lives.

So here’s my story. Someone’s gotta start talking…

I’ve gotta warn you it’s rough.

Some was too hard for me to read. So I used an assistive voice synthesizer… Weirdly enough, it’s robotic voice moves me.

If you’re autistic, love one, or especially parent one…

You need to hear this story.

But sexual assault is traumatic. If you experienced it… or love someone who has… this graphic episode could disturb you. In the US, the National Sexual Assault Telephone Hotline offers support at 1-800-656-4673. Day or night. You’ll find a link in the transcript. Also further reading.
