There are many political views in Autism which go to many extremes which causes equal damage at either end of the spectrum (of views), being a neutral means you can take both views and explore them in a less non aggressive, assertive manner.
For some people on the autism spectrum who have complex auto-immune/metabolic issues which create severe pain and discomfort. Then looking at the reasons why these thing are happening (genetics) is I believe a good thing and productive thing.
ABILITIES WITHIN AUTISM
Yes there are abilities within someones Autism “Fruit Salad” there is no doubt about that and that can lead to someone living a happy and productive life.
As I have stated on a previous post Personhood/Personality and Autism are TWO different entities.
Just like Personhood/Personality and “Non-Autistic Brain” are TWO different entities.
Personhood first is good in my opinion because that is what people should see you as “not broken, damaged or defective or a set of traits and symptoms” so that is why I say a PERSON with AUTISM.
Community is about everybody sharing and learning. Not just one community it sometimes defeats the point, nor do I like people on the basis of “brain-wiring” I like people because they are nice people kind/funny/humorous/easy-going etc.
AUTISM AND ASPERGER DIFFERENCES
WHY I HAVE AUTISM? (AND NOT AS)
I have been speaking to Donna Williams a lot about this me and her be her own calculations have about a 40 percent cross-over in profile I have all the left brain stuff as she does, she however has additional metabolic/autoimmune issues which make up her “Fruit Salad” me and her fit the Autism Profile but it is coming from different angles. Like two people with AS will NOT Be the same.
Lets all Learn from each other more questions and answers will be discovered.
