I see a lot of animus for this person Dubin.
He was caught in possession of "kiddie porn", so of course there would be lots of animosity toward him.

Whenever I used the microwave oven in the employees' break room, the lights flicker in the same specific pattern each time.  Coincidence?

You seem to be trying to use one person's crimes to condemn the entire neurodiverse population.  This fallacy of reason is called "Argument By Generalization", which is a vain attempt to draw a broad conclusion from a small number of unrepresentative cases, or even a singular unrepresenta...

The OP wants us to be segregated and locked away in asylums.
The OP may just be expressing her anger and frustration over being unable to deal with neurodiverse people.  This is mere speculation, so I could be wrong.

I wonder if the 17 year old can sense how much his aunt hates him. She does not seem to "hate" him so much as she wants to have exclusive "Us Time" with her hubby.  I can understand that, because when my wife and I discussed our vacation plans with her relatives, it was often th...

I see only one possible scenario playing out: With or without a conviction/incarceration, Mr. Trump keeps the legal process churning until a Republican president pardons Mr. Trump.

I don't feel that what OP posted qualifies as "appropriate research." I feel that it is an appeal to the emotions, making use of superficially "scientific" methods, in an attempt to discredit neurodiverse people. Rather like segregationists using the Bible (highly subjectively) ...

I strongly believe that, when it comes to important topics, reading appropriate research could be valuable or even vital. The key word being 'appropriate'. Reading appropriate research papers is essential for formulating an experiment BEFORE any conclusions are reached. Problems arise when the conc...

This is something that should be being taught to kids and teenagers.
Yes, and from the earliest possible age.

My main problem with education is that this is not happening.
Agreed. What passes for 'education' seems to be little more than rote memorization and self-esteem coaching.

Unless people go to college or read books on their own, they will probably never learn these skills.
That is what it took for me; even the designers of college curricula seem to leave the teaching of Critical Thinking skills to their Philosophy departments.

Knowing how to think is half of the battle.  The other half is doing it correctly (practice, practice, practice!).

Quantitative claims requires valid data.  Qualitative claims do not.

It is not the quantity of data that matters; it is the quality of research.

When I consider the battle between emotion and logic, I often consider the character of Mr. Spock. I don’t think of it as a battle. There’s a place for research and a place for poetry. How would you classify the OP's 'thesis'? I would say emotion-based but, decidedly, not poetry.  It contains no la...

If you did, then you would not give credit to anecdotes or claim that your level of belief exceeds 100%.

. . . people need to know how to analyze and sift through evidence. This is called "  Critical Thinking  " which is rarely taught as a distinct skill set. A well cultivated critical thinker: • Raises vital questions and problems, formulating them clearly and precisely; • Gathers and asses...
