I came across a rather extreme autism blog today, that inspired me to create an “Autism Bloggers Attitude Quiz”.
The blog I’d discovered was so surreal, that I initially thought it was a joke. (If you want to discover what the blog was, you’ll just have to do the test – one of the results reveals it). After further research, I realised it was for real, and it got me thinking about the huge diversity in attitudes that you come across as an autism blogger. Over the months since I started blogging, I have noticed various trends about attitudes towards autism amongst bloggers, and decided to put them together in this quiz.
The particularly interesting aspect of this whole exercise, was that I honestly had no firm idea of what attitude category I would fall within. I wrote and published the quiz without knowing my result. So I was particularly amused when my result was this:
Autism Blogger Attitude Quiz
Your Result: Meta-Blogger
Chances are you’ve been blogging about autism for a while. You understand that a lot of the debates within the autism community turn on definitions and subtle nuances. You possibly think a sense of community is more important than having answers to all the questions. You also probably think I am horrid for creating this quiz in the first place.
If you decide to take the test, let me know either in the comments of this post, or in this poll, what your result was:
And what you thought of the quiz:
Please note that there was no ill intent involved in creating this quiz. If it particularly offends or upsets you, do let me know, and I’ll seriously consider removing it from the site. I probably haven’t been blogging long enough to have my thoughts about such issues taken too seriously either way, be assured that I do know that!
