I know little to nothing of Jenny McCarthy, save for the fact that she’s an ex Playboy Bunny and an idiot.
She also happens to have an autistic son.
Wait, what’s that? She cured him? It’s a miracle; won’t she tell us how she did it so we can magic our childrens’ autism away too? She won’t? How selfish! Oh, you mean she doesn’t know how she cured him because she made it all up? That’s cruel; how dare she give us false hope, or perhaps think that the rest of the autism parenting community is stupid enough to believe her.
Posing nude for Autism Awareness? Please don’t do that; I’m sure my profoundly autistic son wouldn’t see the relevance any more than I can.
This blog post by Diary of a Mom had me seething with rage. This has-been pin up, this complete idiot who “accidentally” sent her dentist a nude photograph of herself dares to call herself a voice for Autism Awareness?
Please excuse my anger, but the woman can barely string two words together and doesn’t have a clue what she’s talking about! Victim Mums vs Warrior Mums? We’re just Mums, lady; there are no victims or warriors here.
What’s this victim rubbish anyway? Does Jenny McCarthy really think that any parent of an autistic child loves the attention and sympathy they get? She must be living on another planet, because my son’s autism has never brought me sympathy – it’s brought me accusations and angry neighbours and people crossing the street or pointing and laughing at “that window licker”.
Yes Jenny; people have genuinely referred to my son as a window licker! To my face. In front of me. Snidely to a friend but knowing that I can hear every word.
You call that sympathy? I’ll call you an idiot – again. Actually Jenny I shall repeat this: You Are An Idiot.
If you want to be taken seriously as a famous face for Autism Awareness, you may wish to take a few lessons from Melanie Sykes, an English television personality who is liked, respected and admired by many.
She also happens to have an autistic son, but she doesn’t parade him about as a science experiment or even try to pretend that he’s anybody other than who he is.
She is neither a Victim or a Warrior. She is simply Melanie Sykes, occasional television personality and full-time Mum to a beautiful boy with autism. And the British nations love her.
Thanks Jenny, but I’ll take Mel’s practical advice, information and support over your stupidity any day of the week.
