So, how can we be surprised with Stagliano's latest offering, "75 Year Olds with Cancer Get Treatment. Autistic Toddlers Doomed To Diagnosis For Life?" We've read AoA; we've read Stagliano, haven't we? We aren't surprised at all. Mildly impressed at her ability to twist things to fit her skewed version of reality, though, aren't we?
"There appears to be a concerted effort to make sure autism is seen as untreatable, and to paint those of us who dare treat our kids as fools."And yet, I don't know of anyone saying autism isn't treatable. I don't know of anyone saying we shouldn't work to help our children achieve their potential. As to painting quacks willing to do anything to their child to make them into the idealized version of normality fools, I'd disagree. That behavior doesn't make them fools. It makes them desperate. It makes them dangerous. It undoubtedly pushes some of them over the line into abusive, but it doesn't make them fools.
Now Thelma might argue that they're dumbasses, all the way around, but we'd have to ask her.
