Watch: UK Police Arrest Autistic Girl for Pointing Out Officer Looks Like a Lesbian

I hate that it’s come to this, but it must be said: autistic people are a threat to our democracy.

They’re not who we are.

We’re not a bunch of autistic freaks.

New York Post:

Police in the United Kingdom arrested a teenage girl, whose mother said she has Autism, after the child made remarks that one of the officers resembled a lesbian on Monday, according to a video of the incident.

“She’s getting arrested,” a West Yorkshire police officer told the child’s mother.

“She’s autistic,” the mother replied.

“I don’t care,” an officer said.

Autism, or Autism Spectrum Disorder, can cause misunderstanding from neurotypical individuals since individuals with ASD may have different ways of learning, moving, or paying attention.

ASD can also cause challenges with social skills, speech and nonverbal communication, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

When the autistic girl proceeded to hit herself in the head, the mother pleaded with police to maintain their distance.

“She’s in her cupboard, she can’t go anywhere,” the mom said, explaining that her child was being triggered into a mental health crisis by direct contact.

She explained that the child’s “nanna” is a lesbian and married to a woman.

“Go away,” the mom said.

She’s not homophobic. Go away from my teenage daughter.”

There’s something wrong with you,” the mom told an officer.

“This is what police do when dealing with autistic children,” her mother said.

My daughter [said]… the police officer looked like her nanna who is a lesbian. The officer obviously took it the wrong way and said it was a homophobic comment (it wasn’t).”

“The officer then entered my home and assaulted me. My daughter was having panic attacks from being touched by them, and they still continued to manhandle her.”

By the way – the autistics are wrong again.

This very female person looks nothing like a lesbian.

That is pure hatred against femininity, to imagine that this is a butch dyke.

Or, conversely, pure hatred against lesbianism, to imagine they look like such ugly beasts.
