What we're about
Are you in Melbourne? On the autism spectrum? Just don't fit in anywhere?
Totally OVER being type-cast and misunderstood?
If you want to be totally accepted, bringing whatever weirdness you are, and meet others on the spectrum who just wanna do fun stuff-- then this might be the group for you. We do sporadic social things, geeky things, intellectual stuff, and therapeutic events.
Why "Aspie Rebel"--
The word, rebel, originates from Old French rebelle (noun), rebeller (verb), from Latin rebellis (used originally with reference to a fresh declaration of war by the defeated), based on bellum ‘war’. When you think about how autistics are portrayed in media, and how we are ostracized from groups; well, that's like a defeat. Spending all your energy to try to fit in? That just sucks. So rise up against it, and be a rebel. Come join us and share your authentic thoughts and feelings in a genuine accepting environment.
