You will understand the autism industry a lot better when you recognize that it's a right wing political movement as well as a cash cow. Neurotypical parents who hate the adult autistic community don't want their autistic kids to become blue-haired trans leftists
They really do fixate on colorful hair. They will get a second mortgage on their house to pay for their kid’s torture in the hopes that kid will never grow up and dye their hair an unusual color
The rightwing political beliefs underpinning the anti-autism movement are not even really concealed. Autism Speaks was founded with rightwing billionaire money, the anti-vax movement is a uniting issue on the right, and they openly tweet about why they hate autistic adults
