Celebs Support The BugE ... Horse Not Invited

12/16/2007 3:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

John LegendRemember the old horse buggies? Well they are sooo 19th century!

Several celebs including John Legend, Ne-Yo and Chris Daughtry showed their support for the fight against autism by signing a special edition BugE Personal EV (electric vehicle). Harvey Coachworks is working in cooperation with Autism Speaks charity to auction off the BugE. Need a ride?

And how about this -- it costs one penny per mile to operate, and recharges in about four hours from any home outlet. Time for a Road trip!

Autism Speaks is an organization that believes autism is a condition to be cured. Many people from the autism advocacy movement (who are themselves on the autism spectrum) loathe this organization because it believes that people with autism need somehow to be "fixed." Celebrities ought to do their homework about the politics of this organization before they jump on their bandwagon.

Actually, its still a lot cheaper to run a bug-e via REAL horsepower, A Bug-E doesn't whinny to you in the morning when you go to hook it up, can't provide solace when you're down, can't bring a smile to your face wtih its antics and certainly can't give you a newborn life (foal) in which to renew your faith by.

Give me a real buggy and horse anyday!

It looks like a real fancy golf cart!
ZERO safety features, from what I can see, and probably NOT allowed on the freeway. I bet it tops out at 50miles per hour,MAX! Sucha bad idea, safety wise. Where in the hell would you feel safe driving one of these???

I don't think Autism Speaks believes that autism can be "cured" per se. I think their main objective is learning-and teaching others- how to cope with autism spectrum disorders. It's my understanding that they are looking into why there is such a sudden influx of children being diagnosed. And I too speak from experience...by having a child with an autistic spectrum disorder and a Master's in developmental psychology. I have done a great deal of work with this organization and I am far from loathing it. BUT MY MAIN POINT: Good for celelbrities for doing something worthwhile instead of being arrested for DUIs and the like.

Autism Speaks adovates research and the possibility of a cure. Maybe I am part of a small crowd, but I wish there was a cure for my daughters autism. I don't know how any parent of an autistic child wouldn't wish for their child to not have to struggle in life and stand apart from their peers. Autism isn't the same as being quirky or different. It is a disability of the brain and I'm pretty sure if the kids could, they would ask for a cure.
