he youtube video you linked and the trailer shows two different things. In the trailer, the Music character is happy, the autistic meltdown video probably is not.

Here and online there has been plenty of criticism by Autistics of fictional autistic characters for being stereotyped as savants and glossing over the struggles they deal with as autistic people. NTs like films which show growth/overcoming obstacles so the idea of the underdog with so many flaws/c...

Another movie released this year 2020 with a NT actor playing an autistic character “The nightclerk”

Not a peep out of advocates on that one.

Both good movies by the way :

The accountant and the night clerk. Worth watching.

The issue is really the debt and how much it’s been added to. Not to mention the printing of money aka quantative easing The UK like most western economies has been mismanaged for the last 30 years and the day of reckoning will soon arrive as it will in the US. This will lead to a permanent shift of...

No doubt many Hollywood stars are a bit arrogant and full of themselves whether provoked or not. Just trying to imagine forcing someone with severe autism to act out the part of someone with severe autism like a performing seal at the circus. Someone severely disabled dealing with all sorts of issu...

All the hf aspies I’ve known were forced to retire early, mid fifties at best. They scrapped by after that limping to retirement age on benefits or crappy jobs before being eligible for a state pension. Maybe our ability to cope goes down with age. I certainly find things tougher in middle age than ...

In the tweet that I linked to, Sia said she casted these 13+3, so they are actors. There are 41 cast members listed on [url="https://www.imdb.com/title/tt7541720/fullcredits/"]IMDB[/url]. This means 39% (16/41) of the cast are neuroatypical, or neurodiverse as you say it. You are welcome ...

This is proof of the elitist and abilist nature of many in the so called “autistic advocacy movement” Was there an outcry when a neurotypical played an autistic character in “The good doctor” no https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freddie_Highmore So what’s the difference you may ask? The difference is ...

Lots of criticism on the Twitter machine.


The criticism was because they played someone with severe autism.

Advocates like to cover up these people and pretend they don’t exist

Of course there was my cousin & many such kids would have gone to special schools but was there as many i dont think so. Coincidently there is an article in todays Off Guardi...

[ The genetic scientist in the video confirms autism rates have definitely gone up that isn’t just better diagnosis Yeah, but unfortunately from the video alone there's no way to check her data source, we'd just be taking her word for it. And I think she said she's not exactly a genetic scientist. ...

That is really interesting, thanks! I actually had a bit of a lightbulb moment listening to that, as second-generational epigentic effects might well explain my own autism. My maternal grandmother was a heavy smoker and almost certainly smoked while pregnant with my mother. So there may well have b...
