This thesis reveals how advocacy is rhetorically constructed by using several rhetorical tools such as Kenneth Burke’s terministic screens, Michel Foucault’s genealogy and archaeology, and Bruno Latour’s black box. It is told in an autistethnographic style where it is part narrative, part academic, and written by an autistic person. Advocacy is rhetorically constructed by beginning to define a label for yourself.
