Gloria Allred puts to test the NFL’s abuse pledge.

If left to Gloria Allred, her client will see justice. The NFL’s abuse pledge to women puts it all out in the open. It’s about time, players have gotten away with abusing their women far too long. No longer will the NFL sweep it under their astroturf rug.
I think it’s time for Gloria Allred to be nominated to the CNN Hero’s.
Now every sport should follow suit. Stop the abuse of women by men who know better. A man’s too big, a man’s too strong.
Now women have people like Gloria to stand up to the male chovinism.

Unrest in America caused by male aggression.

The message keeps repeating itself: When the police pull you over, pull over. When the police say get out of the car, get out of the car. When the police ask you questions- answer them.
Don’t run. Don’t drive away and get into a chase. “Yes sir, No sir”. It’s that way for everyone–everyone. It’s not about what color you are, it’s about respecting the police. Of which most are good police.
Don’t resist arrest. Don’t try to grab the officer’s gun. Don’t get into a wrestling match with police.
It’s that simple. Stop being the victim of your own consequences. Males need to learn to stand down. Males need to respect authority…of any color. All this male testosterone induced conflict, all the arrests, protests, wars, terrorism, athletes abusing their women, all the crimes against women and children. When will it end? When will the male psyche be healed with the power of love and restrain?
What this country needs are more females in positions of power. Let the power of estrogen change the country, change the world.
Vote to elect more women in government. Give women the chance to make a kinder, gentler America. Could we do any worse?

Baby boomers with Autism are retiring

Supporting The Age Wave: Baby Boomers and Autism

Since 2010, baby boomers in the United States have been turning 65 at the rate of approximately 10,000 a day. Some of these new baby boomers are people with autism. At the same time, over 3.5 million adults with autism and other developmental disabilities are living with family members. In nearly 25 percent of these households, the family caregivers are over 60 years of age. During Autism Acceptance month, we should address the challenges that the age wave creates for people with autism and their family members.

To start, people with autism over the age of 65 should learn about benefits that may be available to them in the disability and aging service systems. Learn about what public benefits the person with autism may be eligible for and apply for the appropriate benefits. In addition, Area Agencies on Aging (AAA) can help you access services and support available to seniors. AAAs offer a variety of home and community-based services such as respite, meals on wheels, and transportation. Visit www.ncoa.org for more information about additional benefits available to seniors.

Supporting aging parents of people with autism is another critical issue that needs to be addressed. In addition to the health and financial issues that all seniors face, caregivers are often overwhelmed by concern about what the future will look like for their son or daughter once they can no longer provide support. Although planning for the future can be challenging and emotional, it is necessary and possible.

Discussing these major life transitions and putting a plan in place may actually alleviate some of the stress experienced by adults with autism, their caregivers, and other family members. The Arc’s Center for Future Planning offers information and resources to adults with I/DD, aging caregivers, and other family members.

During Autism Acceptance Month, here are some ways you can access more help:
