Video - In My Language - on YouTube
About this video:
The first part is in my "native language," and then the second part provides a translation, or at least an explanation. This is not a look-at-the-autie gawking freakshow as much as it is a statement about what gets considered thought, intelligence, personhood, language, and communication, and what does not. (less)This reminds me a great deal about the early work of theatre auteur Robert Wilson.
Communication is not language. It is greater than that. YouTube user silentmiaow (this is her video) says, "labeling someone non-communicative says more about the person doing the labeling than the person wearing the label." Agreed.
