Image #4: Photo by Melanie Yergeau who led a protest against Autism Speaks on October 11, 2009 at Ohio State University. Protesters were members or allies of ASAN (Autistic Self-Advocacy Network, Central Ohio). Yergeau writes in her blog, "I tire of seeing their flyers daily — flyers that variously portray autism as an epidemic, a puzzle, a burden on taxpayers, a fate worse than a combination of fatal situations. And I grow even angrier when I see flyers that read Got questions about autism? We’ve got answers! Dear god. My colleagues, students, and professors might go to these people for answers?"
