Guerilla Aspies podcast Autism Aspergers syndrome neurodiversity neurodivergency 17 - Eve Reiland, Mother, Autistic, activist, writer, journalist and Neurodivergent historian. I never thought I would get to speak to someone in the legendary Californian city of Fresno. I always though it was short for a bigger title too, but turns out to be Spanish for Ash tree. Eve Reliand who claimed the name Autistic Bad Ass Activist before anyone else, kindly spoke to me for my podcast.Eve is best introduced as an autistic activist, artist, writer and parent. she is the founder of InternationalBadassActivists (one word for all you autistic pendants out there), and a co-founder of the Autistic Co operative. Eve started writing for self advocacy in 2005 and launched her first campaign around autism in 2008. Eve's goals are to make a better future for all autistic s born today, amplify divergent voices and document just what has been going on in the world of autism but from our perspective rather than the neurotypical curing parent one that seems to want absolute domination over every narrative and agenda known. Her wonderful films on social media must be seen to be believed. History will be very glad that Eve has gone to the effort that she has.

Guerilla Aspies Podcast Autism Aspergers Neurodiversity Episode 14 - Pioneering advocate, author & Mother of 6 (many autistic) children Emma Dalmayne. COMMENTS AND FEEDBACK? GuerillaAspies@Outlook.comEmma Dalmayne has assisted the British Police to find, question and even arrest parents and people who put their childrens live in danger through unregulated treatments that are supposed to 'cure' them of being autistic. She has often done this by infiltrating social groups dedicated to such aims, finding out who people are and then reporting them. As seen on the BBC, Channel 4, in the Guardian, Times and Daily Mail newspapers. The unique and I think history making autistic advocate Emma Dalmayne finally gets time to talk to me on the phone. That took some doing.Emma and I have been friends for many years and I have not been podcasting for a while, really because I was after speaking to her. I think her work around exposing the practices of injecting CHL Chlorine Dioxide into the anuses of small children, which killed a UK child, is life saving. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2007/jul/10/usa.edpilkington and https://www.vice.com/en/article/kwxq3w/parents-are-giving-their-children-bleach-enemas-to-cure-them-of-autism-311Quoting the New York Times:...the “bleach cures” movement. The Genesis II Church and Kerri Rivera, among others, have been selling products like chlorine dioxide, marketed as “Miracle Mineral Solution,” or M.M.S., stating that the substances will cure autism, acne, cancer, diabetes, Covid-19 and so much more. This is a crucial red flag for pseudoscience: When a product claims it can cure anything, it’s a fake.https://www.nytimes.com/2020/04/26/opinion/coronavirus-bleach-trump-autism.htmlWith six children, several of them at home to with her, Emma has started her own organisation to support both parents and autistic children with regular South London playgroups and meet ups. She has published two books and has spoken on radio and television. She has been consulted by Government in the UK Parliament and only this year was thanked during a meeting in the Palace of Westminster, over the regulation of dangerous practices aimed at 'treating' autistic children. In the belief that this would stop them being what they are. Emma as acted undercover for many years, infiltrating huge online social groups of parents who are secretively putting their own children health and lives at risk. All under the delusion that it will stop them being what they describe as autistic. Emma has taken a lot of personal abuse from such people and has received more threats than I would care to mention on here. https://www.theguardian.com/society/2016/jul/13/fake-cures-autism-prove-deadlyhttps://autisticinclusivemeets.org/about-us/emma-dalmayne/I am proud to call Emma my friend and I hope to carry on supporting her work in the future. Even if it means we have to get ourselves a bit roughed up facing others. Ah well, that's being old Liverpudlian or Scouser for you. We tend to find ourselves at the sharp end... ;)COMMENTS AND FEEDBACK? GuerillaAspies@Outlook.comSupport this show http://supporter.acast.com/guerilla-aspies-autism-aspergers-syndrome-neurodiversity.

Guerilla Aspies Podcast 12 - Jeff Fullington, PrimalHex, Seattle USA. August 2020 I found myself in a hot debate whilst using the @StealthAspies Twitter account with some advocates in the USA who could never tolerate the idea that disability is relative to autistic people. For them the term autism was absolutely synonymous with disability and disorder.I made the acquantanceship of Jeff Fullington, a Seattle based autism advocate and asked him to podcast with me. Jeff is an interesting and passionate man who wants to create communities, both in person and virtually and seeks to bring people together and promote a positive NeuroDivergent identity the world over.Jeff is from the Cajun culture and community and his current project is a Discord - Server platform called The Red Door. He is also working on a website, blog and podcasting platform that other autistic people will be able to use to share their work.The discord link is&nbsp;https://discord.gg/AmTubn9&nbsp;and the info site for it is&nbsp;&nbsp;https://sites.google.com/view/the-red-doorWARNING: We end up spending a lot of time talking about our shared love of late 70's/early 80's music. As a first generation Liverpool Punk Rocker, I consider this a right and proper use of my podcast time. Thereafter at the end Jeff details his work so it's worth getting to the very end to hear that. Thank you Jeff. :)Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/guerilla-aspies-autism-aspergers-syndrome-neurodiversity. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
Guerilla Aspies Podcast 11 - Autistic musician, translator, globetrotter and activist Chen Gershuni from Israel. A very good friend of mine speaking all the way from Tel Aviv Israel, Chen 'Globetrotter' Gershuni has had a huge, invisible influence on the planets autistic advocacy through his tireless and selfless translation work as much as becoming a major hub of positive self advocacy. Chen is renown the world over online and is a regular on the UK's Autscape event. He is also a musician and player of the stick. Look 'em up.He's a brilliant man and a lot quieter and smarter than me. Which of course is saying a great deal, etcetera. I caught him in his living room.During the podcast you will hear a reference to a man called Jonathan Mitchell being interviewed on a YouTube channel that I name as Autism One. In fact I got the name wrong. It was the Autism Live Channel. This interview is worth seeing on account of the sheer paradox that Mitchell presents in platforming himself as an autistic person who stands against anyone being positive about their autistic natures. When he himself clearly presents as someone who can work around the limits of his autistic nature, as he sees it limiting him.Now, what he refuses to acknowledge is that others can have equally valid but different opinions. The eerie inability to stop seeing his opinion as the ONLY one that should be seen and believed in life. The total inability to concede and see anything in the arguments and statements of others.Mitchell is a full time troll who relentlessly criticises anyone on mainly Twitter that he disagrees with. He has had substantial mainstream media coverage and cannot understand that he represents a schism in the greater Neurodiversity Movement that he both rejects and considers himself not to be part of. I see the term Neurodiversity Movement as a metaphor. Not a card carrying organisation. Notice also, the way that he uses the term Neurodiversity Movement as he wants it to be seen.Mitchell is actually part of a visible, online group of what are clearly his close personal friends. A phenomena he keeps saying that he cannot have or enjoy.https://youtu.be/X9zD_RK6-swWhat is weird is that Mitchell states how much he has been attacked and insulted, without any reference to what he's been doing to people. Even when they did not know. He's rather fond of relentlessly criticising people who have blocked him and have no idea he's doing it.Poor Jonathan is a fine example of how in the world of social media, people do not seem to be able to understand that their ideas and statements can be seen in completely different ways to how they think they should be.The Autism Live channel is a very dubious thing. The presenter was found by me in one episode, staring in awe at Andrew Wakefield and Del Bigtree, his Dr Goebells, doing their usual material on how the vaccines their own bodies were doubtless full of (certainly Wakefields if not Bigtree. His zealous preacher parents may not have had him protected) were potentially dangerous and even lethal. This film is no longer findable. It appears to be run by the C.A.R.D or Centre of Autism and Related Disorders, the boss of which appeared in the Andrew Wakefield paranoid conspiracy theory medical science fiction film Vaxxed 1.

Guerilla Aspies Autism Aspergers Syndrome Podcast Episode 10 Autistic Trans Parent and Artist, Alexandra Forshaw For the tenth podcast I would like to introduce to you all over the planet Earth, the Autistic Trans Parent and Artist Alexandra Forshaw.We discuss trying to cope with the best university in Britain, finding out just how much don't fit and how much the NeuroDivergent community has given Alexandria a community and a positive identity. Hell, a real one more like.Do we all spend our lives compromising and following social protocols that demand we become to varying degrees, someone and something we are not? Then to go on to live as such for the rest of our lives. Sometimes blissfully unaware of how much we compromise ourselves. I think so. But not everyone is lucky enough to uncover and come to live in alignment with their own reality in all its forms. (This is a rather Buddhist way of putting it).Its now August 2020 and I an not at the Edinburgh Festival doing my long running show, which is a great shame. However a link to the Stealth Aspies performance at the Marlborough Theatre in Brighton 2019 is available to be seen as part of the online Edinburgh Free Fringe. Just search for it on there. :)Please contact me via HoxtonPaul@hotmail.co.uk and guerillaaspies@outlook.comSupport this show http://supporter.acast.com/guerilla-aspies-autism-aspergers-syndrome-neurodiversity.

Guerilla Aspies podcast 9 Autistic Pride Organisers - Billie Jo Gibson, Autism Pride Liverpool. It was my honour to interview Billie Jo Gibson, who stepped up and took on the responsibility for the Liverpool Autism Pride event a few years ago. She is also the webmanager for Neurodivergent Labour.We all come from somewhere. A place that makes us. I come from the city of Liverpool. As we 'Scousers' say, a boss interview with Billie la.Life can be a huge journey. Billie takes us on her's from a young diagnosis to her creative life and unflinching political stanch. One day people will take for granted the effort and sacrifices that activists like Billie Jo have had to go through. For now, please enjoy this little bit of history. I sometimes think the people who started it all and took on the world in their own small way, were never rewarded by the future's view of just how significant their actions were. Billie, take courage and pride that when I was a child in the 1970's no one knew anything about being autistic like they do now. But in the future your work will go on and mean so much to people like us. Please enjoy.Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/guerilla-aspies-autism-aspergers-syndrome-neurodiversity.
