As a scientist how do you feel about this sort of thing? I think it's comparable to eugenics trying to cure, or promoting a made up effort to "cure" in no way supported by any science whatsoever, neurodivergent conditions like autism in order to effectively eradicate people with a permanently different type of brain. It presents a real threat to turning parents and adults away from the care they and their children need and all legitimate socially progressive movements of inclusivity and diversity in the past 50+ years, such as the Autism Act and the work of charities such as Scope and the National Autistic Society to raise awareness.

And yes, the same group running the venue are super into anti-vaccination and blaming heavy metal poisoning and microwaves for every health condition known to man, because, Fa cebook told them so.


I think exactly the same as you do on this, I think:

1. "Alternative medicine" is a very dangerous movement. People should seek real medical advice if they need it.

2. I think that disorders such as autism should be treated with social support and, if necessary, medication for management of secondary symptoms like anxiety.

If there were a magic pill an expecting mother could take to make sure the baby is neurotypical, that would make me feel very uncomfortable. I think in general we should celebrate neurodiversity, recognising that yes it can be challenging to be a neurodivergent person, but that those different ways of seeing the world are inherently valuable.

However, I recognise very severe, extreme autism can result in fundamental learning disability and a limited quality of life. That isn't typical of autism but it can happen. If a line could be drawn and only these very most severe cases "cured", I would at least consider the argument for it, that maybe the person would be thankful ultimately.

This is such a stupid thing, yet it really pissed me off yesterday.

When i was in town, i wanted to buy a pack of Barratt Refreshers sweets, and so i went to poundland as they usually sell a large range of confectionary.

Image

Poundland had lots of sweets, but no refreshers, and so i tried Iceland, Morrisons, WH Smith, and several newsagents, and not one of the bloody places sells them.

What the flying strawberry float do i have to do to find a pack of sodding refreshers these days?

I can't remember the last time I seen Refreshers in the shop. I know you can get them as part of a sweet tub.

Now I want a refresher bar. Feck you Vermilion!

Will they have them at Christmas markets? I guess you could wait a month, find out, then go from store to store like a kid on Halloween to stock up.

Firstly, i don't want a £10 full box of them, secondly, i'm not paying £20 for delivery (which is what the site you linked me to costs).

When i went looking the other day, i was only expecting to have to pay approx £1.

Ad7 is a virus that infects everyone it comes into contact with.

I am being driven crazy at the moment by a new girl that is sat next to me. She just doesn’t shut up. She’s been in for less than an hour and I have already heard very long winded tales of her new washing machine, her boyfriends journey back from Japan, her workload, her plans for the weekend, her landlord wanting to do an inspection soon and her experience on getting the train between Bracknell and London.

Shut the strawberry float up.

New girl: “I was going to get a sandwich off of the delivery people but I think I’ll go out to Subway instead”

Me (stupidly answering her): “looking at the weather, are you sure that’s a good idea?”

New girl: “Well it’s only rain isn’t it, it’s not going to kill me. I am always telling that to my boyfriends brothers, they were smothered all their lives by their mother – well it’s fair enough as they tried for 8 years to have them – and when they were 14 they still didn’t know how to open an umbrella because their mother had always done it for them. They are so different to my boyfriend because he had a little bit more independence being the older one, but the twins had everything done for them. Which makes no sense as I think they tried for 5 years to have my boyfriend but they just didn’t seem to smother him as much. But the twins are slightly autistic which might also explain why they never seem to be able to do as much as my boyfriend does.”

For the love of all that is holy, please shut the strawberry floating strawberry float up.

They're sold in every independent store around in Birmingham. Have you tried your local?

Independent stores do not count, they have to be available in a chain store at precisely 2:31pm and cost exactly 23p.
