[quote"AsPartOfMe] I could argue that while we should accept them homosexuals are inherently disordered because they are impaired from procreating, I could argue that being black is a disorder because they are prone to crime and shorter life span. Your left wing indoctrinators would not like th...

"Natural human exclusion" is systemic oppression. Many people in general tend "naturally" to be prejudiced against people different from themselves (in whatever way: race, cultural background, economic class, etc. -- as well as neurology), or at least to have difficulty empathiz...

Pretty much confirms everything negative about Nd i ever said on here: Nothing without us: who's us exactly? The individual making their own choices fine, but if referring to Autistic people as a whole many are unable to make a decision at all and many may not agree with their position on cure so it...

I challenge you to find and quote even a single one neurodiversity paradigm advocate who has ever claimed that autism is just "some kind of social dysfunction or shyness." The kinds of accommodations typically sought also involve other things such as sensory issues. It wasn’t a literal qu...

Probably alot of misunderstanding on how such a device could work. Most of the negative symptoms of autism come from signals leaking from one mini column to another in the cerebal cortex. This is caused by the micro columns being packed too close together causing poor insulation. The result of this ...

In light of british actress stephanie davies coming out as hfa at a late age. Just wondered is there a link between severity and age of diagnosis? I mean if you can go up to your 40's without anyone mentioning autism then surely the symptoms must be mild in comparison to a 2-3 year old that is suspe...

There is evidence that TMS can help strengthen the insulation between micro columns in the cortex, helping against core asd syptoms. Basically a mal formed cortex is the reason for most autism symptoms, with messages intended for one micro column short circuiting and ending up in another. An autisti...

This technology has a potential to do a lot of evil... a chip releasing neurotransmitters in brain could be used to practically control a human being. Yes, it could be used for easing one's suffering but it also could be used for inflicting it... I see a potential in it, at least in severe cases, b...

The core symptoms of autism are caused by malformation of the cerebral cortex. Basically in extreme laymans terms because of a neuronal migration failure the group of vertical mini columns that make up the cortex are narrower and numerically greater than in NTs. Sadly more is less as being more dens...

According to the National Disability Insurance Scheme in Australia my autistic daughter isn't disabled (so I haven't got any financial support) but I know somebody who's son has mild Aspergers/ADHD who is getting full insurance. A lot of confusion and angry parents... I suspect problems with social...

Most who are against the term "neurodiversity" are still for social accomodations and opportunities that neurodiversity supporters demand. Its the rest of the self serving part of the movement we object to : The word neurodiversity itself has multiple meanings the main one that that seems ...

Like I said in the other thread while the Autistic Superpowers meme is mainly a well intended counter to the Autism mentally ill and retard ideas, and in this case to counter the vicious attacks on a teenager by middle age adults, it is supremacist. Instead of saying autistics are not fully human i...

Thanks for the details. But mostly old news to me, and it only made it clearer that you got a lot to go. Especially of the so-called agendas and the good/bad stuff. Everyone has a dream to realize after all. Is this only your answer and sticking with it, or if there's something else beyond the curr...

Edna3362: just to clarify my point there are 3 types of acceptance, individual, sociatal and humanity. Individual : in the abscence of effective treatment / cure individuals have to accept their autism as they have no choice Sociatal : as above in the abscence of a cure society has to be more accomo...

The main purpose of acceptance is a form of realization, attainable by individual and collective means. This is something that goes beyond tolerance and it is a concept closer to understanding. One that paves and drives a person to grow in all aspects of life, the very one that grants understanding...
