In America being black is a net negative, you have a lower chance of a getting a good job, a better chance of being a criminal and being a victim of a crime. This was true for the Irish and Italians when they started their parades. If you were homosexual in America in the 1950s most likely your lif...

Why are NT's more qualified to opine and define about severe autistics than autistics even if these autistics are far less severe? NT's are not more qualified to define Autism, which is why i said earlier the greatest influence on any direction on the autistic rights movement should be from those m...

I don’t know how things are in the UK where but in New York politicians have always marched for the cameras at these parades. The paraders talk about “Italian Pride”, or ‘Jewish Pride” the organizers encourage these politicians to attend in hope of receiving benefits from them. Politicians have alw...

When there is Columbus Day or St. Patrick’s day parade and politicians go there and mug for the TV cameras as is common practice, we don’t call that identity politics Not really the same thing comparing a harmless celebration or party with a political movement making demands that others may not agr...

I’m going to be winding down my commitment to this particular thread for now since I have said mostly all that I needed to say. I think i can say with absolute certainty that collectively Neurodiversity are anti cure in principle regardless of if there ever was one. This extends right across the spe...

People have their own Psychology, so do groups, even big nations. You have your "Shinning light on the hill" we have "fair play" You also get lynch mobs and genocide where the "group" ends up doing things and inadvertently taking people in bad directions that the indivi...

What would a cure even look like, if they did come up with one...neurosurgery to re-wire everything? Just doesn't seem very feasible to cure someones neurology to make them neurotypical. Its not really about curing autism or making them neurotypical its about encouraging & supporting medical tr...

"Neurodiversity" is largely the cult of identity or about identity politics, as opposed to disability rights. Its disproportionatly composed of those who are "anti cure", (which inevitably means anti new treatments) at least at senior level. Wanting to dictate autism research and...

I used the word "approx" before because it wasnt about the exactness of figures themselves, they were ball park figures. The question was 1. Where does the ND movement see the borders of severity i.e at what point would ND classify someone as severe enough for research? Intellectual disabi...

As i mentioned in the post ( i said leave aside the outcome) the daily mail article + the suramin one was just a casual 2 min search of examples of the types of severity of the kids that take part in these licenced invasive trials, it wasnt meant as a scientific report of each therapy. Im well aware...

I dont know the effectivness of ABA therapy. There does need to be more research in this field of techniques that work. "Floor time" seems a good one. Dont know too much about "sonrise" program effectivness As far as "normalising" kids, its unfortunatly sad as it is we ...
