Just a question that has floated in my mind, a question that came from the need of many autistic bloggers to protect their privacy and anonymity.
We don’t naturally collaborate well or have a sense of cohesion as the non-autistic seem to form so I would really like some input/feedback .
In the light of the recent discord within the autistic Twitter community I realised that even if individual autistic bloggers gave permission for their blogs to be recommended reading for non-autistics working in the field of autism there remains a further problem:
the problem is this: what happens to the privacy and anonymity of those who submitted comments to posts?
Another problem is that our autistic space could be jeopardised by infiltration/ invasion by non-autistic agendas.
Anyone else concerned about this?
I know it took me a lot of perseverance to find the autistic community I needed to contact and I appreciate how hard all those years stranded alone before I tried Twitter ( still have only very basic ability) and then to try to use WordPress ( with the help of others) . I really value this community I worked hard and long to find , I’m not sure that those who have entry presented to them on a platter would have the same respect.
Some of us, in fact many of us, for a variety of reasons use nom de plumes to preserve our anonymity thus enabling us to discuss issues that may be sensitive.
Any constructive thoughts appreciated.
A Code of Ethics to protect Autistic bloggers?
Would/could it work?
Access selective or carte blanche presented to non-autistics?
I acknowledge that I may be a bit too idealistic but better to bring up the topic than ignore it and even worse to endorse a potentially divisive and dangerous action.
