I wouldn't take this seriously at all. Autism Speaks' agenda hasn't changed over the years; they've only become more intentionally vague and misleading about it whilst looking into new ways of appeasing the more impressionable of their dissenters. The organisation has always directly opposed the va...

I used to think I passed well. That was before I was told a cousin who rarely sees me spotted me 10 years ago, finding out my elenementry school threw me out after 2nd grade, bieng diagnosed as moderatly severe.

Well, it looks like he took down all of his articles. I asked him thorough questions and asked him to give specific, concrete examples. What is he afraid of?
