Busy, busy day, but in my quest for a brief distraction from the stack of essays awaiting my grading, the psychology tests begging to be recorded (and not pretty grades, shame on 'em), the A & P quiz coming up this afternoon and the chem test tomorrow that I need to study for, I popped on over to my favorite place to get enervated (anger, outrage, disgust and occasionally sheer awe at the audacity of the woo and realigned universe that AoA apparently exists in are awesome for waking your ass up).
Wow. Okay, sometimes it's the articles. Christ, but Olmstead thinks he's a clever one. Too bad, isn't it? And then there are the comments. You know, I don't know anyone who argues that autism is purely genetic and when you say that folks who view, based on the frakking overwhelming evidence at hand, ASDs as primarily genetic conditions with environmental triggers are instead arguing that it's purely genetic, you look like an incredible (insert any of physioprof's descriptive word choices here or we'll use Thelma and Louise's) dumbass. Seriously. You really do.
Ya'll keep redefining autism into the twisted, deformed, frakking unrecognizable condition that you're so busily morphing it into so that ya'll can better sell the advertisers' and sponsors' products, and I'll keep thinking you have absolutely no moral compass whatsoever in addition to being complete idiots. Oh, I know, that is so harsh. I'm not talking about everyone, just the ones it fits.
I mean, I don't need a nap now; I'm energized and raring to go right back into that A&P, so, shew, man, I guess AoA is better than coffee for waking my tired and rather well rounded ass right on up. Thanks, ya'll, from the bottom of my compassionate, caring heart. I'd tell you you were the best, but I wouldn't want you to think I meant that in a good way.
:-) I gotta add, I get some of my best laughs from reading AoA. I really do. I'm sorry. I try, I really do, to be a kindler, gentler me, but I dare any of the woo fighters to go read some of the comments from the Olmstead article and see if you don't laugh. You gotta. Ain't no choice. Wow.
