There is a good youtube video explaining why curebies are like nazis. Not like the few that actually participated in the deadly experiments, but the general society that simply believed that the Aryan race was superior to the Jewish people.
I believe no neurotype is superior or inferior to the others. Each one brings their own difficulties and abilities, and it's up to all people to help each other and benefit from each other. There is a very big problem with neurotypes like autism being portrayed as 'bad', a 'disease' or 'disorder'. If autists continue to speak up and gain allies in this matter, autism will propably disappear from the DSM list of psychiatric disorders much like hysteria and homosexuality have.
There is something very dangerous and sinister in trying to basically delete a very intrinsic part of the brain, as pro-cure people wish to do. You can't do that without dramatically changing the person and taking away everything that makes them who they are, all their quirks and talents and yes, disabilities. But it's not worth it if you take away the A-bilities too.
Autists have quite a bit to worry about developments in fetal research. They are trying to find a way that autism can be discovered before the baby is born. Considering the fact that 90%, NINE-TY PROCENT of all babies with downs are aborted, that makes for the very stark possibility that, because they know their baby is autistic, will not consider that baby as having the right to live and go through this world. That is just plain eugenics, and something we as a humanity should abhor, not seek to make possible.
We need to stay strong in a world we struggle every day to understand, and which often does not even try to understand us. But do we consider ourselves to be suffering? Do we wish we didn't exist? NO! We have the right to exist.
damn straight curbies are already carrying on genocide on down syndrome. Makes them like Nazis, both curbies and Nazis want to wipe out all the things which are considered "undesirable" to them. Nazis tried to brainwash Germans with propaganda about jewish people, curbies(especially Autism Speaks) trys to brainwash neurotypicals with propaganda.("I am Autism" video). Both curbies and nazis are trying to commit genocide on a certain group of people.
Thing is what can we do to make them understand we have the right to exist?Not much we can do since we are the minority.
Are you fucking serious? You really don't think everyone would find some other irrelevent shit to bully eachother over? Do you think aspies are just so superior that they'd never ever be meanies to their poor aspie friends?
"Effective" and "intelligent" are two subjective things, number one.
Number two, people with aspergers are not a separate race. You can have black autistics, white autistics, asian autistics.
People have different strengths, so-called "neurotypicals" (although I reject that term) may have different strengths to autistics (not what I necessarily personally believe, just running hypothetically on a few ideas you have put forth), but surely people, as a whole, having different strengths, is a better idea than having everybody having the same strongpoints and weaknesses.
An area of knowledge being outside the area regarded as typically intelligent by the mainstream is often overlooked by things like that. It is subjective- and there's not just one way of being intelligent, either. One could be wonderfully articulate, and have a vast knowledge of the English language- but know nothing about Science. Aaaand visa versa.
Yes, it does ring a bell, but I really do not see the point? Segragating people on the grounds of having asperger's/autism or not does not necessarily seem like a good idea. Species thrive because of variety.
Yes, guilty as charged there (although it's not knowledge of science that's missing in my case, but math skills, lol). But I never said I deserve to exist.
It is not segregation done by force but by the people themselves. If you heat a grasshopper's head up, but not his abdomen where the sound-making thing is, he'll mate with a different kind than his own, and produces fertile offspring - but in the wild the temperatures are usually the same, and thus the temperature-dependent frequency gap prevents this from happening. Autism causes a difference in communication style as well - including mating signals. See what I mean?
I find this pretty ironic because among the many victims of the Holocaust were the disabled and mentally ill. A lot of the disabled were put to death, or sterilized. I am pretty sure that the "master race" would have not included aspies if Hitler had his way.
But the ones who are? In the Holocaust they'd be quick to be treated, killed off, or sterilized.
Also the LFAs would surely be as well. I really don't think you get why the master race WOULDN'T be people with asperger's syndrome in WWII. In fact, there were probably plenty of aspies killed off for having the wrong skin color, being gay, or being Jewish, and so on and so forth.
Yes, and that would be right. The right to exist needs to be earned.
I agree with eugenics (which means quality control, really), not with racial theory (which is demonstrably wrong and leads to inbreeding, but who the hell knew at the time?). So what happened back then is not really relevant to what we should be doing now.
Hmm, I just don't think that people are entitled to breed. I don't believe in any control by killing people. I do think we need to watch how much we breed and educate people better on safe sex and birth control. We have limited resources, and there would be less grief if we simply made less life rather than eliminate the life that is already there.
So I don't agree with eugenics, more so that I agree that less people should be breeding to begin with, because it's environmentally responsible and there are other ways to reach out to children if you want children to be part of your life.
And I don't agree with eugenics. To me it's not who has the baby, but how many babies there are all around.
I have intense emotions and intensely good relationships with my out-of-age-group-friends. Logic would dictate I know what love is; I would say that if anyone touched my friends with intent to harm, they'd find out just how much I love.
In some respects we are. In some rspects not. And there are cases when something else than AS enters the picture and complicates it. (I, for instance, am dyscalculic, which renders me less valuable than even most NTs, but that is not linked to AS.)
I wouldn't even say in some respects, because from what I read no two people have the same asperger's, so each could come with a varying bit of symptoms. There's a few symptoms that are nearly universal, but it doesn't mean that having HFA automatically grants you higher intelligence.
Not only identity management but things people do to get ahead or to use each other. For example, if a total stranger invites you for lunch in his house, there are certain risks associated with that - not every time, but still you have to be careful because the guy might seem well-intentioned and turn out to be a robber or rapist. Or is that identity management too?
