It wasn't the Stonewall focus group
or the Stonewall business case
It wasn't the Stonewall let's-present-
Long years of asking nicely had not
got us anywhere
Our rulers did not hear us when
we whispered: it's not fair
So when re-writers try to say
we won by being quiet
Remind them of our history -
that Stonewall was a riot
Discussion has started on setting up a National Council on Severe Autism in the UK, modelled on the one that already exists in the USA. I was asked by a journalist for my views about this, and this was my reply:
I'm declaring World Awareness Awareness Day
on 1 April every year
We need more awareness of our awareness
and of our lack of it.
How many people are even aware
of how aware they are or are not?
This must change!
I ask you all to wear my
Awareness Awarenss Day
badge and/or ribbon
and/or wristband and/or lanyard
