Mouth #79 cover.what it is.


Hope you don't mind taking a few more misconceptions to the dump, because this Mouth trashes a bunch of them.

"People with autism are in a world of their own, and they like it that way." Dump that one first. And remember how facilitated communication was scientifically proven to be a fraud? That one, too.

Guest Editor Zach Rossetti and friends want us to know that even when hearts scream to be heard, anyone can be silenced — by special programs and separate classes, by charity and pity, by being forced to ride on "the retard bus," by the baby talk of bigotry. Non-communicators are "unable," one of them writes, "to touch the world and make a mark." Let them make their mark on your world, today.
