Managing Editor's Note: Jenny McCarthy spoke out about Amanda Peet's calling parents who alter the vaccination schedule to protect their children "parasites." Jenny has walked the autism walk. Amanda Peet has a neurotypical child (God bless her) and knows nothing about what we've gone through with our kids. Jenny is an advocate and an insider. Amanda is a spokesperson who spouts the words on the page in front of her. There's a big difference. One teaches. The other proselytizes. May Amanda never need our help. But we'll be here if she does. The LA Times is asking you to "vote" on which Mom you believe HERE. That's utterly disgusting in my mind, to vote on whether you believe Jenny, whose child was on death's door, is the "winner" or not. People think autism is a lark???? KS
"She (Peet) has a lot of [nerve] to come forward and be on that side, because there is an angry mob on my side, and I like the fact that I can say she's completely wrong,'' McCarthy (whose 6-year-old son has autism) tells the upcoming issue of Spectrum magazine, which hits stands Wednesday.
“I look at (Peet) now and say to myself, 'That was me before I had autism in my life,’ and until she walks in our shoes, she really has no idea," McCarthy added.
