all this reminds me of the movie Gattaca. The point of which, if I remember correctly, is that society shouldn't prematurely judge individuals based on perceived inferiority, and that eugenics can cause long-lasting problems for individuals in this same society. "The movie Gattaca is often ref...

Many of these arguments by ND advocates against autism research falls under what’s known as “The Straw Man Fallacy” (see attached video) “I’m against autism cure because this will happen” Or “I’m against vaccines because you’ll be forced to take them” All these claims can be answered with maybe they...

Depends. Sperg autism probably shouldn't be cured but other forms of autism seems to have low quality of life and should be cured. Sperg has pros and cons but some other forms of autisms just to be more cons than pros. And tangentially, this is another reason to suggest why there should be differen...

ND advocates are against a cure for autism, its central to their belief. I can understand why you feel this way. However, the truth is the understanding of autism by ND advocates and many professionals in the field is that autism is a neurologic difference that is not going to be "cured" ...

It will only take a neurological research finding to find a biological signature link between a form of autism and those that commit these mass shootings, for us to be in a world of problems. Let’s face it most while not always diagnosed certainly fit the social behavior criteria. That would be bad...

Years ago few people heard of autism it was something possibly related to vaccines was the common ordinary view 15-30 years ago. Even if they knew this they didn’t really know much more about it.

This is gonna sound weird, but I wonder if there are any studies on NT parents of autistic kids to look at sperm and egg quality? I know there are some genetic reasons for autism but as Ms Escher points out there are many cases / increasing cases of autism occurring for no apparent reason in utero....

I would agree for "severe autism" which seems to be her specialty. However, if you absolutely have to include all forms of Asperger's or HFA or whatever they're calling it now and lumping in everything under the heavy "calming blanket" of ASD, it's wrong. I don't think it's a su...

Grouping everything together makes it hard to find relevant information and statistics. What is the unemployment rate among autistic people that are verbal? When they say the life expectancy of autistic people is 36, and the most common cause of death is suffocation, does that have relevance to my ...
