Nice post!

One little bit on CNN, possibly why they gravitate towards Baggs.

Couldn't copy that URL so here's another version. I'd like to know who that writer was.

Likely a ND follower. How in the hell is she a manager? Maybe she doesn't have to deal with people at all. It would explain their Baggs fetish.

Thanks for writing it Cornelia. I hope yoi aren't invaded by the neurodiverse knuckleheads who frequent my blog.
You are a treasure!

Cornelia Read said...

I'm just waiting for the neurodiversity and pro-mercury people to show up... THAT would be a big fat party!

Hey, we're mystery writers. We deal with the dark side all the time.

Foresam said...

Cornelia,
The logic they use is certainly mysterious to me. If you write any mysteries about asylums though, you will understand them.

Yes, that is one heck of a good article. It should be required reading in medical schools.

too late,

Leech is already there.

Oddly enough, my second novel THE CRAZY SCHOOL was set in a boarding school for disturbed kids. Except for the mystery bits, it's a pretty accurate memoir of my time teaching in one in the late '80s. Horrible place. The kids were great, but the grownups--not so much.

Cornelia Read said...

Okay, so who's Leech?

Foresam said...

I see Kev demonstrated his stupidity. Of course, If I go and refute his twisted logic, he'll be sure to retort with some old out of context quotes about sending him some bananas for his daughter. I'll leave it alone.

Cornelia,
I'll apologize now for the first loons arrival. Leitch is a guy from England who decided he was bipolar last summer to give himself an excuse for thoroughly bashing an autistic man who frequented his blog. He quit blogging after I wrote a few posts about his lack of brains, using the excuse that he was scared for his safety as he must have thought I would swim across the Atlantic and attack his family.

His philosophy on autism states that he will try to cure his non-verbal daughter, only if she asks him to do so. Note that the girl is non verbal.

He used to manage the Autism Hub which is a collection of bloggers who oppose any cure for autism based on the theory that curing autism, even non-verbal, self-abusing children is akin to killing the autistic person within. Ne turned the management of the Autism Hub over to Dave Seidel who runs around the internet trying to assassinate the character of everyone who helps to expose the fraud of one Amanda Baggs, a fraudulent autistic person who managed to get herself on TV to claim she does not want to be cured. However, Amanda Baggs was a normal child who could speak and toilet herself until she abused LSD and magic mushrooms while a 14 year old college student. She was diagnosed with autism 5 years after she destroyed her mind with the drugs, became an elf for awhile and now is the spokesmodel for the Autism Hub to try to prevent anyone from curing autism. And, she now claims she can't speak but she can sing...and she wears diapers.

That's Leitch and his crew in a nutshell. Most of my blog has been about the insanity of these people.

Cornelia,

Leech is Leitch. Or Leitch is Leech. Either way, he has a very long history of verbally assaulting parents why try to use biomedical intervention to help their kids (he once tried and gave up). He will tell you to your face (internet face) that there are the same number of autistic kids now as there have always been, and that autism has no environmental cause and no biological treatment
(standard Neurodiversity party line). It's all in his blog over the many years he's been doing his thing if you really want to look, so whatever politeness is there in his posts, don't believe a word of it.

You're a very astute person, judging by your posts, so Leitch won't fool you for a second. Just remember, he is trying to tell you that Hanna Polling does not really have autism...

Cornelia Read said...

Ah, thanks you guys. I'm glad my kneejerk response was just to nice him to death. I've dealt with far too many trolls over the years--life's too short to fight with people in backblogs.

What a loon, though, eh?

Feh.

Is Leitch on the spectrum? Has has the same inability to see the big picture that all of the aspies seem to have. It's really strange to read his rebuttals to every bit of news that is coming out lately, as if he just does not see the trends at all. He's the proverbial blind man with the elephant.

The same with Orac and all the rest of them. I guess people can be blinded by many things, politics, money, stupidity, mercury on the brain.

John Best,

You have often been erratic, offensive, off-the-wall, sometimes downright quite obnoxious...

You were also, it turns out, right all along.

Here is hoping you take a few moments to savor the great vindicating satisfaction of having all of this finally really come out...

and another link you might enjoy if you haven't already seen it (located in the commentary of this other great post you've linked to above):

Now if only the matter of the other companion grave affront and offense being performed against autistics and their parents, that of Amanda "Malingerer' Baggs massive hoax can begin to be truly ferreted out and dealt with as effectively...
