The Poster Children of Autism
Part the cover of the 1999 version of, What is Autism by the ASA.
These pictures on the covers of Autism Publications and websites have got a lot worse over the years perhaps reflecting the ideal of autism is a 'retarded' type of thing. (as the experts would like to present us)
What we have figured out is a different kind of human thought process. It has never been in a text before. We have figured out our keen senses and how to use it. As Autism "grows and matures" the Poster Children for the cause reflect the changes in attitude of the Autism powers. Many years ago we WERE ABLE (still are) and came out of this mess called Autism doing quite a bit. The Crypto Sensitivity Autisitcs of yesterday do really well today and most of us do some sort of traditional life. Other than the fact some people in modern autism got a chill up their spine and were "forced" (letters to Congress really help at times) to dust off the old Autism and re-badge it and call it Crypto Sensitive Autism, there is little if any reason to ever admit to our Autism Anthropology. Simply stated we are bad for the business of modern Autism. Our almost traditional lives go miles the wrong direction and modern Autism sadly will never figure out what we have done as it has never been in a text book before. Retards (as they think of us) for sure, can't write their own text books or figure out our own conditions or even use them. We all have done a double-blind Autism experiment and the results are FANTASTIC! and apply to all versions of autism. That is what scares the modern autism folks: having to admit to us in any form will cripple the reputations and the status quoe of autism. Politically is far more correct to keep us hidden and keep pouring the Autism Kids of today into a poorly formed leaking mold all the while unknowingly taking away our very best chance of autism success. The Normal Thinkers that "know so much of Autism" don't know the first thing about autism. The "experts" especially those expecting an uncritqued career and peer reviews indeed know Autism, the autism they have invented. If they were the least bit professional they would relish the chance of uniting our anthropology and figuring our what we have figured out.
For far too many years now Autism has been trying too hard to 'help' us and by doing that has created the zombie type of person they "like." Is this all in an effort to keep the epidemic alive? Introducing the very successful people, like me, and many others that do some sort of real life, is not only bad for the autism Image, it will prove without trying hard they missed the entire point to Autism. Even worse it will prove for as long as they known of us and ignored us that their hearts are in autism research for their own glory. Honest researchers leave no stones unturned. Crooked ones like to hide details unfavorable to their empires. We are not here to cause trouble, for autism, But we HAVE figured out a different kind of Human Thought process that has never graced a text book before. If they have their way it never will! Our Figured out autism, is just that figured out. Their Autism is also 'figured out' but it is the autism they have molded to suit their desires and protect their egos. Inadvertently it is the Autism of today, the hopeless, helpless and those in a drug induced "coma," who's people don't talk back that form the impression of Autism today. Too bad we break the mold, or they might actually 'like us'.
I wonder what "Autism Genus" abandoned the Crypto Sensitivity Autism/Old autism guidelines and streamlined them to a more generic type of thing in hopes the resulting empire would someday yield a telethon?
