False pride

In case you didn't know, tomorrow (the 18th) is Autistic Pride Day.  Presumably this event has been established to convince all of us "neurotypicals" that autistic people are "just like the rest of us" except they have this slight difference in the way they use their brains...or so goes the conventional wisdom.  

This again makes me angry enough to fire off another poast raving about stupidity in the world.  Yes, there is autism, and it is nothing to be proud of.  Autism is a pervasive developmental disorder which renders the person unable to care for or support themselves. Therefore autistics are net drains on society, regrettably for those who wish to 'reintegrate' them into the mainstream.  Folks with true autism should be institutionalized, as they were in the 1950s.  It is the most cost effective way to care for them.  

And then there are those 'higher functioning' autistics who claim to take pride in their differences and reject their 'repression' by a society which just misunderstands them so much.  People, I am only going to tell you once -

Asperger's Syndrome is a fiction!!

It is just a fancy way of saying someone is a LOSER.  To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, it is a loser's diagnosis for losers.  Social isolation, inability to relate to others, employment instability, clumsiness, etc. etc. -- sound a bit like a LOSER, doesn't it??

Do not be swindled otherwise by the dickheadocrats, the "disinterested" medical profession, the so-called arbitrers of health science, etc.  Scientists are human just as much as anyone, and today they are even more willing to give their careers to temptation with all that government research money floating about.  Why, they might even come to the same conclusions which our Leaders desire.  What cheer!

So-called 'servants of science' desire those green pieces of paper we call money today just as much as anyone.  Avarice is original sin, you know.
