I really hate mothers that don’t get there kids vaccinated because they wrongly think there is a “rare” chance of their child getting Autism. You know what else is rare? The deadly diseases that your child can get when they don’t get vaccinated.

You basically rather your child die than have a mental illness.

Autism isn’t a mental illness.

Psychology has a bias problem

A group of scientists tested two groups of people. One group got higher test scores that the other. They did better on the test. Better. 

So, the scientist concluded than one group had a deficit. The group who was worse at the test, right? Wrong

 They concluded that the group with the higher scores  had “an as-yet unknown pathology”. The group with the higher scores. Something wrong with them. Must be. Because they’re autistic.

It’s the clearest evidence of a bias in psychology I’ve ever seen. And this isn’t an isolated incident. 

Most of psychological autism research functions on the basis of testing autistic people on tasks developed on non autistic people, and whatever you find, whether it’s autistic people doing better, worse or the same as non autistic people, concluding that autistic people are deficient.

Psychology has serious, serious problems with bias and ableism.

really, that’s what the term “savant” has always been. The idea that we can be “pathologically good” at something.

"savantism" = "Someone I assumed was [insert ableist slur] is really good at a thing, but I can’t call it, IDK evidence of intellegence, because they’re a [insert ableist slur]

Yes, god, “pathologically good” at things is a perfect phrase.

distracting-shiny said: WHOA DUDE SHE, LIKE, OPENED MY EYES, IT’S LIKE I’VE NEVER SEEN A WOMAN UNTIL THIS DAY. HOLY GUACAMOLE. If I can get Brunhilde over here, will you promise not to punch me in the nose if I ask Gutrune out?

———————————————————

I mean, it sure would suck if Brunhilde denounced you in public afterward for having seduced her in my stead and told me you were the most vulnerable to a punch in the nose.

distracting-shiny answered: uhhh… I don’t know how I knew that name… ah well, I’ll know her when I see her, I guess! That was a good drink, btw, thanks.

Man, but how ‘bout that Gutrune?
