This is why...

Trigger warning, because the images here are pretty icky. It's the autocompletes for Googling autistic people should, allistic people should, people with autism should, and neurotypical people should. Genocide is mentioned.

These autocompletes are why we are here.
These autocompletes are why we are having this flash blog.
Because what Autistic people, autistic people, and people with autism should do?
I don't know, it's up to the individual people in those categories. I only choose for me.
But these Google autocompletes aren't it.

Googling "autistic people should," we get these.

Description: A google search with autistic people should typed and the following autocompletes:
autistic people should be killed
autistic people should die
autistic people should be exterminated
why autistic people shouldn't have children (end description)

My results were the same.

Googling "people with autism should," we get these.

Description: A google search for "people with autism should" with the following autocompletes:
should people with autism have children
should people with autism have kids
should people with autism get married
should people with autism drive (end description.)

My results were the same.

Neurotypical people should didn't get any suggestions:

Description: A google search for "neurotypical people should" with no autocomplete suggestions. (end description.) 
I didn't get any suggestions either.

Googling "allistic people should," the suggestions were still to autistic people...

Description: A Google Australia search for "allistic people should." The autocomplete suggestions are:
autistic people should be killed
autistic people should die
autistic people should be exterminated
why autistic people shouldn't have children
should autistic people have children
should autistic people drive
should we kill autistic people (end description.)

I didn't get any suggestions for allistic people should, but then, I don't live in Australia.

  2. Im so sorry for the ignorance of human kind. Please know not all people feel this way, and people with autism should be treated as they are, equals.

    1. Casie, did you really expect a comment like that to be allowed here? If you must spew hate, get your own platform.
