A bit of Aspergian Pride

Posted Aug 01 2008 12:00am
I've posted links on this site from time to time but I usually avoid long posts of just links.

I'm making an exception in this case for a few reasons;

1. Obviously I want to join the Aspergian pride site
2. A list of links like this is a good way to find out what other aspies are up to.

One of the most interesting lines on the aspergian pride site is a request that "others will respect and value our diversity, instead of calling for our extermination by way of prenatal testing and eugenic abortion".

For those who aren't familiar with the term, Eugenics was a genocidal theory proposed in the late 1800s which had a wide following amongst otherwise sensible scholars in the 1940s. It formed a large part of the basis for the Nazi atrocities of World War II. Eugenics has a particular relevance to autism because the elimination of autistic children by selective breeding is no different from the elimination of racial groups by the same method. It deserves a post all of its own, but for the moment, I'm a little too busy to comply. Later maybe.

Anyway, without further ado, here is the list.
