Amanda Baggs is a controversal public figure claiming to have autism
this being true or not could be a subject of discussion
yet HIAS is focussing on the mere representation she choose to come forward
and share her approach towards her surroundings.
She is an activist in her own right
raising awareness for different ways of interaction, absorbtion and response
and criticising the social status that comes with ‘acting’ different.
Her video, posted in 2007, illustrates her method of response.
