Yes, their biggest flaw is they usually talk about autism as falsely just one condition they think every other autistic person is just like them. Who, exactly, makes this claim? Can you provide an example? Almost everyone who claims to explain autism but gives a one sided picture of autism omitting...

Its inevitable that genetic engineering will be introduced to autism. In fact since there are many autisms genetic testing can help determine which autisms are "harmless differences" and which are bad for the person so it helps the ND cause to defend the ones which are differences and leav...

For a neutral propaganda free accurate day to day report of the conflict, i would recommend the Military Summary Channel. The person who runs it has said he is against the war in general & reports events / progress each day favouring neither side. It seems to be attracting supporters from both s...

On the autism subreddit, they are super up in arms about Autism Speaks. I don't think they even allow you to defend it. Too activist for me. I don't like rocking the boat unless I feel really strongly about something. Besides, I liked the blue puzzle piece logo. It's nice to meet Aspies who dgaf A ...

So therefore it is pointless giving people like this guy the CBD 'treatment' then? Because being severely autistic is not just about being accepted. Are you saying that they would have to select which autistic people to give CBD to, using some kind of criteria? Not necessarily if giving CBD reduced...

DON'T do those fallacies, don't do unintentional Communist propaganda. I see that you're from China. But you're in your 20's, you never saw the horrors of CCP like your parents and grandparents did. I'm a bit like that, I grew up when Russia's influence in the Eastern half of Europe was declining, ...

My friend has a 26 year old son with severe autism who doesn't talk much, he makes noises and flaps etc. At home in the Midlands, he and his son get funny looks and comments. But they're on holiday on the South Coast now. He said that he hasn't got a single funny look or comment and they've travell...

Weed changed my life. I smoked dope almost daily for my sophomore, junior and senior years of college and then regularly for the following three years of law school. Being high settled my social anxiety immensely. Before my sophomore year I hadn't even really had a girlfriend and didn't feel that I...

It's OK to be different, but you will get treated differently for being different. Many autistics hate being treated differently. WP is a good example of how many autistics dislike it. Autism just isn't an "identity". I get almost religious cult like vibes looking at how aggressively some...

CBD oil is hardly a cure for autism so many people are getting carried away here. As far as treatment is concerned I’m rather skeptical CBD is over hyped in general maybe they think it helps with anxiety but my personal experience cannabis makes me more anxious not less. I believe there should be a ...

The original child psychiatrists that officially discovered autism in the 1940’s didn’t have a clue what it was or what caused it. It’s no different from a scientist observing an advanced alien spaceship and making assumptions about how it works. All they can do is what any scientist can do when the...

Well if Russia starts invading other countries it might turn into WW3. However, in WWII, the only way to get Japan to surrender was to invent the atomic bomb. But since Russia has plenty of those, will NATO have to invent a more more effective new weapon of mass destruction that would be equivalent...

It’s sad and I’ve tried to research some of these cases. It appears in many cases they are living at home then something happens usually a meltdown of some type. The autistic person is perceived to have done something dangerous to themselves or others and can no longer be cared for by parents. It’s ...

I feel like the percentage of people with autism with "intellectual disability" is much less than even 30%. This wasn't true 30-40 years ago, though. The criteria for an autism diagnosis has broadened so much----that many people who don't have ID have had an autism diagnosis since the beg...
