Long time readers of this blog know one of my points to ponder is our long term study of our living autism Anthropology. Our anthropology of Autism reaches back in time and includes people in their 80's plus we have a number of deceased people that have left a legacy as well. Our living anthropology offers blanket coverage of the entire spectrum. The study includes old, new, Straight, Transgendered Lesbian Gay and BI sexual populations of Autism. The majority of us are Older GLBT populations, but again we are a mix of everyone.
We all met online with the power of the Internet and otherwise we would have never connected. We met online initially seeking a GLBT (Gay, Lesbian Transgendered and Bisexual) support for Autism and what we discovered was a group of very highfunctioning,well adjusted Aspie's and most of us do traditional lives. We drive hold normal jobs and some of us even excel in our fields.
We all did a blind backwards experience in Autism and online we have compared notes to discover we all were self taught Autisitcs-our Thought process has NEVER been in print before (Temple Grandin mentioned it, picture thought). There was no one there to teach us our natural thought process. We all share the same milestones in thought development and today depending on how far along we are in our self guided tour of autism think the "same way." Proficient Picture Thinkers like I am all do a pretty normal life we HAVE COMPLETED The entire Autism Course as we know it. Before this Autism's highest honor was Temple Grandin's Thinking in Pictures but, her great work only describes autism to a half way point compared to our experience. Those of us completing the autism course instantly see modern Autism has got a hold of the 'wrong end of the stick.'
Despite the fact we are from all over the world and speak many different languages and we never knew one another, the Autism has proven to be the same. Again Our Thought process has never been in print before, I try to illustrate it in my book called Pre Rain Man Autism and please look back in this blog and see an illustration of one of our advanced thoughts.
It seems every asipe that has made it in real life like we have had a social factor in their lives that really helped them over come Autism and connect Autism to traditional thought. For many of us it was GLBT factor, others had a strict well managed life to help overcome Autism's poor behavior. Still others had a unique social structure that allowed them connect somehow.
Autism is so simple, it is just another language basically only one that has never been understood before. I have always said that basic Autism could be taught by 6th Grade If our long term 30-40 years experiments were condensed. Of Course, We are unintentionally kicking Modern Autism as we emerge from our experiment at exactly the wrong point and time. No Empire will allow itself to be disrupted with long-term evidence. Mankind has been the biggest looser in autism's Rain Man Style ignorance and has been cheated out of our insight into the human mind, our pain free population, among many other things.
Perhaps what really scares Autism's new empire is, I predict that autism will become the old boring autism of time gone by,a1960's definition of Autism and many cases of the new Epidemic will be proven not to autism, but something else. We have people from the modern generation that relate to us perfectly (usually lower functioning folks) and have seen many from the modern generation seek us out on line for support in the gay issues in their lives and many of those people don't a clue to autism as we know it.
Other aspects of our long term experiment will tend prove ignorance from 'Autism's modern knowledge' saved many of us from a Rain Man curse and gave us an ignorant chance we would never had otherwise. We are so thankful for that. I don't think Modern autism was intentional at all in trying to help and it had the best of intention but it just its empire is built on a false foundation. I do worry, if today AUTISM IS being intentional in ignoring our living working anthropology, Indeed there are many careers and reputations and hurting families at stake.
Even, If I were not outed I still think Autism would be ignoring us as we do too much, without their help. I was one hailed as the next Temple Grandin and I built my book Pre Rain Man Autism on hers and completed the autism experience as we know it.
Autism Empires and general human nature and even homophobia are bigger hurdles than Autism ever was. Not only do we offer a study of long term legendary proportions, but some of us are gay as well. Even more shocking(to some) the Transgendered people have done the best of any autism Population. Autism and the celebrity based empire it has built will not shoot itself in the foot it will not even look at as us because of the sexual issues alone. It is amazing just how many autistic turn out gay. Maybe we are the world's last Gay rights struggle as well? (indeed we have straight people in our anthropology don't forget) .
Autism has no reason to open this can of worms as they would call it , and everytime we talk they have a further resolve to shut us up. Therefore I call upon others in science, like Cancer research, Education think tanks and worldwide non-profits to at least do the study on our worldwide autism anthropology? Autism will have to jump on board eventually when the resutls are clear. The Spin Doctors of autism or even the best ones of Washington, DC cannot (will not) sugar coat our facts well enough to get us admitted to in autism circles. Perhaps the Tax payers are being cheated?
I'd like to thank Aspie Dr. Alan Turing (1912-1954) for leaving us the computer and now the Internet to work with. Alan was a WW II hero and Father of the computer. It was the gay factor in his life that made him social enough to get along with others (in a strange way) and the Obvious Autism Thought, that gave the world his computer. Despite Alan's gay suicide he left a legacy beyond compare. (Ironically) homophobic persons use computers and the net all the time and I don't see them avoiding the net like Autism avoids us?
