Neurodiversity is a butthurt "philosophy" invented by autists who claim to be the next Einstein, Gates, or Jefferson with no actual evidence. This is so they can feel speshul about themselves. It is very dangerous, as it increases the number of "entitled" welfare recipients. By supporting this shit, "normative" society helps people on the "autism spectrum" claim victimhood and poor-little-me status. Supposedly they got the idea in the 1980s after seeing how successful feminists were in claiming their victim status, and the glorious Internet made it easy to shill for attention, sympathy, and/or money. Needless to say, TOW has coverage of all these "special snowflakes", because it's run by similar dickbrains.
Amanda Faggs (lolol) was the first neurodiversity advocate. Despite being unable to speak. She was a normalfag until she took drugs and became profoundly impaired. Looking to be famous, she bragged that she understood the world (via her "facilitated communicators", one of the worst scams in psychiatry history) and was special for it, even though she lives on welfare. She was featured on CNN, the News For Speshul Asscancers.
—when you see shit like this, you know you're being manipulated
Yes, Amanda/Amelia/whatever has a blog. Either she can write very well and not speak, or else it's being written for her by one of her "facilitators". Also contains a lot of her "poetry".
Another neurodiversity advocate, he dropped out of school at age 15 and designed a handful of guitars for KISS. He was just weird, not disabled. He somehow managed to start his own automotive repair business before he was diagnosed, despite the fact that autistics are supposedly too socially impaired to manage a business. He thinks that everyone on the spectrum has the exact same "mind" that he does. John's kid brother is the incredibly-annoying faggot author Augusten Burroughs, as if that meant something.
John became a New York Times bestselling author, got his ass listed in a Wikipedia stub lol, and is now very rich. Make him buy every round of shots. He also has a shitty blog where he spews about trivial shit in great detail, and no one notices. While blubbering about what incredible "geniuses" his autistic bros really are:
—yes, he really wrote that
A slaughterhouse designer, she was the inventor of the hugbox. She believes that every autistic is capable of being a genius and has said that "half of Silicon Valley is on the spectrum." She has probably never even been to the valley. Although HBO did make a movie about her in 2010, that practically made her out as the Second Cumming Of Mother Teresa. Temple Grandin loves horse, especially in meat form.
Looking to get rich, college student Alex Plank founded the site Wrong Planet (wrongplanet.net) in 2004. The forum includes confessed anti-Neurotypical killers and lots of autists, plus some just-plain-losers. Mostly, they just celebrate how they are the next Einstein while having dropped out of high school. Wrongplanet's traffic has declined because Alex was using it to bitch about himself.
He also ran a video series called Autism Talk TV, with Robison. Their last post was in 2011 so the lulz were judged to be inadequate. Because he's made a "movie" and some online videos, he's got an IMDB listing.
An organization founded in 2006 which preaches the "difference not disability" model. Convenient for Ari Ne'eman, its extremely-pro-Israel Jewish founder, who loves to give himself pay raises provided by Barack Hussein Osama. So far, they have provided no evidence that Autism is a good thing, but keep shilling for those shekels Ari!!
He's got a Twitter, that he uses mostly to repost things by other fellow dweebs. Troll it if you like.
Jonathan Mitchell Strikes Back
Jonathan Mitchell is an autistic author and blogger who advocates for a cure for autism. He opposes the neurodiversity movement. He is one of the most controversial figures among autistic bloggers because of his hatred of autism, his view of autism as a disability, and his desire for a cure. Since no actual medical authorities have managed to insert a claim into the DSM-V that ASD is automatically considered a "disability", he is extremely butthurt.
Mitchell has described autism as having "prevented me from making a living or ever having a girlfriend. It's given me bad fine motor coordination problems where I can hardly write. I have an impaired ability to relate to people. I can't concentrate or get things done." He resides in Los Angeles and has a degree in psychology. He has worked in the past, doing things like data entry. He describes neurodiversity as a "tempting escape valve".
He writes as a hobby, having written three novels, 25 short stories, and runs a blog called Autism's Gadfly. Wherein he whines and whines about his "problems". He was interviewed on Studio 360 about one of his novels, The School of Hard Knocks, and another novel of his is called The Mu Rhythm Bluff. Notable essays written on his website include Undiagnosing Einstein, Gates, and Jefferson, and Neurodiversity: Just Say No.
—bitching about one of his fellow attention-whores
Being brainwashed by the media, Seinfeld, despite the fact that he was a successful comedian and happily married, decided that he was on the spectrum. Despite his social success, he stated about himself "You’re never paying attention to the right things. Basic social engagement is really a struggle. I'm very literal. People talk to me and they use expressions and sometimes I don't know what they're saying."
However, probably after learning about Chris-Chan and the like, he changed his mind, saying that he just watched a play about it. Obviously, he had no idea what he was talking about, and should go back to shilling for Shekels.
No soup for you!
Randi Harper (Randwhale)
Randi Harper is an autist that claimed that she never experienced sexism in computer science, but decided to become rich by making a blocklist and claiming to be highly talented. The blocklist was horrible, as it literally blocked the followers of only five users. Nonetheless, she became famous and received a buttload of Patreon hipster welfare. Can you say GamerGate?
