Alternative Autism Smilie (xposted) - Page 2

I also agree that we should have another choice. I certainly don't look at my brother as someone who needs a cure, and would like a symbol more neutral perhaps.

Would #12 be more neutral? appropriate? http://www.xanga.com/Jennifer_Z/5675...-take-two.html

eta: or #13

12 is a good compromise between the pro-cure and anti-cure sides, IMO.

It incorporates the rainbow without either symbolism.

Hi new here Jennifer Z can you do this?

I love the puzzle ribbon can you make one for me a puzzle ribbon that says # 12 writing Autistic Spectrum PDD and Neuro Diversity on the puzzle ribbon in the writing of # 12. Our son was dignosed in May 2006. I am so glad to find this forum.

Thanks!

If we agree that the ribbon is biased, then the infinity symbol is biased the other way, and people can choose which emblem to use.

The one that just says "Autistic Spectrum" is okay, certainly neutral, but, well, I want a picture. Like the other advocacy pictures/ribbons we have here, like

It's just more easily recognized that way.

I think the one without the writing is good. If people want to know what it means, they can ask. I don't know the meaning of all the ribbon colors.

that is the one I prefer too. It can also be a lot smaller if it doesn't have writing, and the title tag/mouse over text can read "autism_neurodiversity" or something along those lines, like some of the symbols here have the meaning of the symbol in the title tag.

Do you mean the traditional puzzle ribbon? The reason I ask is because writing "Autism Spectrum PDD" would make sense with that, but the puzzle ribbon is the opposite of "Neurodiversity". The infinity symbol with the puzzle peices I drew was a joke, of sorts, and not everybody would particularly appreciate the humor of it if it was taken out of context because it is using symbolism from two opposite camps combined together. A political cartoon of sorts.

Personally, I love the graphics of the puzzle ribbon because my ds loves puzzles. I am obviously not too upset by it because I still use it in my signature, but I don't particularly like the connotation of it. So, I am sort of in the middle of the road myself.

I meant the traditional one.

I'll chime in, too.

I like something that says "Autism Spectrum". I'm not too picky about the actual graphic, as long as it has that wording.
