At the bottom of my blog is a "site meter" tool I use to analyze where and what kind of hits I get on this blog. From time to time I go threw the site meter and figure out what the most popular post was and where my readers come from on the web. The hit meter often tells the search words and the names and location of those landing here. There have been some pretty big names in Autism on this blog. Before the passing of Dr. Rimland ,father of the movie Rain Man there were a number of 'hateful -spite type' search words. I know from personal experience with the late doctor we were not best of friends. Lots of "his search's" were digging for dirt, it seems.
*GASP* The most vulgar search's often come from the autism professionals them selves and the tone of their search words tell as much as their search did. For example a direct quote from the Search Page, " HOW TO TOILET AUTISM RETARDS" the kicker to this search was it was from one of the "best most well known " autism research centers" in the country (United States). Often times the so called professional have the attitude it seems all of autism is just retarded retards with no hope what ever. I know I don't know the whole context of the quotes but, the general tone is just awful and points to autism professional as nothing more than in this for the money, fame and a good job.
As all of autism took off after Rain Man the movie blew things out of proportion,it made it all that much easier to ignore the old working autism the next 1000 chapters in psychology as our discovery and connection to normal life has never been in a text book before. Our new news, new ground connection from the bottom of the gene pool to Einstein shows the entire scope to the human mind and the plug in steps we did to pull off the trick of normal. Since none of this has been in a book before and it will never pass review or spark the interest of normal regular humans (researchers included) who unbeknown to themselves think in shortcuts. The short cuts we learned while at the bottom of the geen pool, are indeed autism all figured out. Man will never add those 1000 chapters to psychology as long as he wears the blinders of normal thoughts.
