Isn’t this lovey

Even once diagnosed, mothers with autism often hide their condition from the outside world, terrified their children will be removed from them if social workers misinterpret their autistic traits as indicating potential harm to the child.

Women with autism are victims of society not understanding.

The male autists who populate the harder end of the coding universe are sexist pigs revelling in Bro’ culture.

Hmm.

  1. It’s diagnosis creep: the pathologisation of part of the normal spectrum of human character to the benefit of professionals and big pharma and no one else. Every Diagnostic and Statistical Manual used by the mental fraternity to label clients is substantially bigger than the previous. There used to be classical autism diagnosed young and a severe and obvious handicap to the functioning of the individual but with the “spectrum” disorders, anyone with a hangover qualifies.

  2. …terrified their children will be removed from them if social workers…

    Remind me again which newspaper social workers read?

    So they’ve had a heads up and there’s no excuse.

  3. Well. Isn’t autism actually pretty likely to impinge on the natural function of women in society?

  4. “neurodiverse”

    It’s good to learn something new every day. OTOH why should this something new be this?

  5. I have met a few females down the years whom I could describe as (borderline) autistic.

    The last thing that they were interested in was having children

  6. ‘mothers with autism often hide their condition from the outside world’

    It would be quite odd if they didn’t.
