Well, Autism Screams Again! It is autism awareness month after all and AUTISM SPEAKS.org and others hell bent on curing autism, promoting autism and inadvertently fueling the fire of autism have succeeded beyond their wildest dreams again. What a shame autism Post Rain Man is the disaster and the epidemic we know and hear so much about-is also a self inflicted injury!
All autism has to do and it will not do is admit to the Crypto Sensitive Autism folks mostly from an era gone by and SUDDENLY all of modern autism will be seen as a moot point. Autism was much better figured out and autistic people in general did much better lives before the Curse of Rain Man. So called "experts" of autism that have never had an autism thought and perhaps a few publish or parish fame game doctors discovered they could milk autism for all its worth and get a good career out if too. By the Time "Night of Too Many Stars: an Overbooked Benefit for Autism Education hosted on Television's Comedy Central not to mention the Ophera and Larry King and the NASCAR associations among other autism tidbits is proving to be a worthwhile epidemic that is nearly self sustaining these days. If autism were really serious about autism and IF they were honest sincere researchers (?) and not crooks stealing the public money and condemning Autism people and their families to group homes they would simply investigate all of autism including the Crypto Sensitive Autism Dr Rimland purposely forgot so that the epidemic could be invented and SUDDENLY Autism would not be near the trouble it is today. Suddenly the Myth of Autism would be exposed and Suddenly Autism would be seen for what it is, anything but an epidemic. Autism is BOTH MR/DD and Einstein and even social proper social functioning people but those of us fulfilling the promise missing rain Man's Curse can never be admitted to now As Autism SPEAKS But it can't afford to listen to the very successful people it forgot to start with or the real crisis in Autism research would be the unemployed researchers and the group home workers.
"It's bleak for a lot of parents" Smigel said" as hard as it was to have our son diagnosed, it's even harder to imagine the frustration of parents who just can't get what they want and need for their child" If autism would care to listen to the people that missed its curse and read our autism blueprint (The Enigma, 1983 Hodges) all the little fine points that made us successfull autisitc people that modern autism overlooked would once again surface and expose modern Autism as nothing more than ignorance personified. Tell me, will the billion dollar Autism Research Empire complete with an autism awareness month and celebrities galore ever admit to the very facts that will solve autism again? Probably not too many people are makeing a living from the autism movement-What a shame Autism is the building blocks of the human mind the Di Vinci Code the Father of the Computer, The Boy from Alverz (1600's) and lots more obscure facts from Pain Tolerance to keen senses and all of this vital knowledge would be disseminated by now if autism hadn't cursed us all.
