Sure NTs make mistakes look at our politicians and prisons lol. Maybe the only difference is the way they handle them, i.e not get too flustered and are able too recover themselves quickly. Maybe learn relaxation techniques or if that doesnt work get out of the situation i.e change jobs, move house ...

Thanks for the link magz obviously goes into greater detail. Looked him up on wikipeadia was'nt aware the poor bloke received murder threats from ND activists (see link) probably explains his angry tone. I suspect their just harmless but sick internet nerds but this type of behaviour makes ND look m...

I would really love the neurologists to figure out autism on neural / biochemical / molecular level. It appears to be way more tricky than anyone expected. It's possible that what now is "autism spectrum", one day may end up split into several different conditions, based on different neur...

Carlos, I think you miss one important point: Cure for severe autism is unavailable. Not because of any kind of activism but because the research world still haven't figured out autism well enough to even understand the underlying mechanisms. Claims that ABA can "cure autism" are false an...

If anti cure advocates are incompetent to advise parents that their autistic offspring does not need or want a cure is it not hypocritical for pro cure advocates to assume the autistic offspring wants or needs a cure? We conclude the severe autistic wants or needs a cure based on our standards and ...

I fully agree a person of sound mind ( meaning able to make decisions and is aware of their reality ) has the right to refuse treatment. Thats why i gave the severe dementia example. Unfortunatly this can include those with psychosis and severe autism. Those decisions should be a balance between fam...

Again why do NT's the predominant group of people who have defined autism have more if not all of the rights to speak for autistics who can not speak for themselves? Ok where is the proof that the core behind the ND movement are NT's falsely claiming to be autistic and deluded autistics and that th...

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...
