BolshyGreatYarblocks: brantgoose: Congratulations, male heterosexual and lesbian Farkers! Miss Americas are now even more unlikely to acknowledge your existence!

I bet some of you think all pretty women are autistic.

Most autistic people have some talent, so no.


Autism usually does not work that way. My son has autism (the real thing, properly diagnosed. etc.) I have met many people on the autism spectrum. Not one of them had savant syndrome.

Rain Man confused a lot of people about what autism is. I've lost count of the number of people who have asked me "what's his ability" when I mention that my son has autism. He has autism, not super powers.

leadmetal: Furthermore, testing is done on -adults- not children with developing immune systems. The order and timing of vaccination has -never- been tested to see if there are problems with interactions or anything else with some of the population. It's just all assumed to work together like some 16 year old throwing aftermarket parts on a honda civic in a one-size fits all fashion.


Wrong. I was in a vaccine test program as a child. Not only did I experience no ill effects apart from one minor injection-site rash that my Mom cleared up with Neosporin, but I'm also not anywhere near the autism-spectrum.

I work with people who are, though, and if you ever want to piss off a roomful of smart people, start spouting that Jenny McCarthy 'vaccines are cause teh autisms! oh noes!!1!' bullshiat in a room full of advanced-degreed Aspies. They will scorn you so hard that your grandparents will feel embarrassed and not know why.

pute kisses like a man: dletter: Bladel: BarkingUnicorn: First story I read about her said she had "borderline Asperger's syndrome."  But Fox, of course, had to amp it up a bit.


"For the longest time I just really wanted to know what was wrong with me," she said. "When I was finally diagnosed I felt like it came too late."
As a parent of a kid who required hundreds of hours of speech therapy just to be able to finish a sentence, people like this really piss me off.

I understand what you are saying, but, at least from what I am aware, "Autism" has become a very "vague" term now for a wide range of conditions (as they call it, the "spectrum").  I'm sure for someone who has a child with a much more dramatic form, it is hard seeing someone like her who is fairly well spoken talk about her "struggles", but, at least technically, she probably still has "it".  It is probably more that at this point maybe they need to have some more specific terms (and I'm sure they do, they just don't get talked about publicly much, everyone just says "Autism").

getting mad at people who have it less bad is like getting mad at cancer survivors because someone in your family died of cancer (or just suffered a lot more)


No, that isn't what this is about.

It is about the next time someone proposes cutting special education funding, people will remember the quirky/cute pageant winner, and not the kid in the wheelchair trying to learn to read.  Or some celeb bimbo goes on Oprah and scares people about vaccines, and now we're spending tens of millions on urban legends instead of researching genetic markers or environmental factors.  All so someone can sell a few books, or this gal can get a trendy diagnosis and go from Miss Congeniality to Third Runner-Up.

She does, but then she's from Montana, so I don't think that was a speech impediment. She really does see an elk for therapy.

Krieghund: chrylis: The Angry Hand of God: I am growing so tired about hearing about people with autism, ADD, ADHD, Asperger's, etc. Can't people just stop making up names for these so-called "conditions," and take some responsibility? I get it, you are socially awkward. When I was a kid, that would just mean that you gotten beat up here and there, but you would just go home as the beaten up weird kid, not some completely dysfunctional, Ritalin popping mess with some poorly diagnosed trendy "disease" caused by getting too many vaccinations.

Opinions, Farkers? Occasionally worthwhile and just being an especially obnoxious troll today, or ignore-bait?

I don't get why people ignore trolls. They're half the reason I read Fark.

I have no idea about this guy's other work, he hasn't rated as particularly funny or obnoxious with me. Maybe his other stuff is less obvious. Then again, it would have to be.


I did like how he got the bit about vaccinations in there. That shows he can spread it out a little and drag some people in that might not otherwise get involved. Work in progress maybe?

Only if there is a pregnancy spectrum.


Borderline means not on the spectrum. So this headline should be: "slightly weird, socially awkward girl is pageant contestant". BFD.
