Topic: Rooted in Lived Experiences: Black and Asian Considerations for Autistic Masking
V. Tisi (/vi/, they/she) and Asiatu Lawoyin (/ˌɑsɨˈɑtu/, they/them) discussed the intersections of anti-Blackness, anti-Asianness, and autistiphobia, and how behaviorist ideologies promote assimilation that oppresses our communities. Justice perspectives go beyond diversity, equity, inclusion, and must include the analysis of systemic oppression, how it implicates identity-erasure, and centers whiteness and neuronormativity.
