Another story that hopes people still believe there is no known cause for autism. I guess they also think people can'r read or research.

People only have to research your posts on the subject to realize you think autism is caused by:all vaccines,global warming,global cooling,George W.Bush,big corp.'s greed,doctors,teachers,the American gov.'s conspiracy to commit 9/11 and generally anything from America.Sorry if I left anything out,I'm sure you'll list it in short order.

I am considered to be a person with autism, or "autistic person." I do not want a cure. I have impairments which are regarded as clinically significant yet they do not outweigh the benefits of being me. Me, which the jackasses in white coats ignorantly attempt to sum up with an erroneous label and then try to say I am a pandemic, a disease, "defective" in some way as if I am like a radio that won't work. How can this be standard practice?

Anyway, I simply do not know what a cure would do to me. I am not one of the Neurodiverse idiots any more than I am pro-cure. I can't tolerate this nonsense any more. I resent the label "Autism." Sometimes I even hate myself, which is pointless and illogical. I am frustrated and tired. I just know that I am confused. I don't want a cure, yet I do have specific needs that must be compensated for by govt assistance in order for me to survive. There are people audacious enough to suggest that if I don't desire a cure if one were available, then I am undeserving of assistance in other ways. It makes me sick just thinking about it.

I don't want autism to be eliminated. One ridiculous thing people assume is that autism is one specific thing with one cause to be found and treated. In fact, "autism" is just an umbrella term for what could be many different disorders with a similar pattern of symptoms. All I know about myself is that I had not been breathing at birth. Whether that caused my "autism," I can't be sure. However, in spite of me not involving myself in any sort of autism politics, with the Neurodiversity proponents claiming that autism is simply natural variation, and this "autism" being everything I experience as a person, I can honestly say I'd be pretty disappointed to know that it all comes down to being simply a birth defect.

Its great to have you post here. Your insight and opinions are valuable. Keep posting. We are all confused about autism and everything that sits under its umbrella. More work than ever is being done, and its because of the confusion and anger etc that has made it one of the most important issues we have today. Don't hate yourself or harm yourself over it. Be patient. If help, or cure is found, decide then if you want it.

Being a troll is the only thing that doesn't cause autism,right? Or do you have some "research" that proves it also causes autism? Remember,millions and millions,FBOMBER.
