Critiquing Temple Grandin

Trigger warning for ableism.


Temple Grandin. Image description: A headshot of an older white woman with very short, somewhat curly, brown but graying hair, looking directly at the camera. She is wearing a cobalt blue collared shirt and a silky black scarfy tie thing. Behind her is a wooden fencepost with rope draped over it.

Temple Grandin is widely recognized as the world's most famous autistic person. She's written a number of books about autism, regularly travels around the globe to give talks at conferences, and was even the subject of a documentary on her early life (eponymously titled Temple Grandin). Other autistic people, as well as folks outside the community, have written on a number of aspects of the troubling things that Temple has said or the way in which she is positioned in rhetoric on autism both in broader society and within our own community.

I have several criticisms of both Temple Grandin's positioning as well as her positions.

Because Temple Grandin is functionally the world's only famous autistic person (and certainly the most famous), what she says about autism is taken as gospel, regarded as absolute truth, and frequently generalized as if representative of the experiences and views of every other autistic person on the planet. This is despite the fact that her experiences are inextricably linked to her race, her class, and the time period during which she came of age -- not to mention the inevitable tensions that come with being the first widely-recognized autistic to speak on an autistic experience. casino club online spielen doubleu casino hack come smettere di giocare alle slot online best casino online bonus

What Temple Grandin has said about autism is frequently extremely ableist, classist, and otherwise very problematic. Because of her prominence on the world stage, her international acclaim, and her extremely high levels of visibility and name recognition, her ideas have proliferated quite abundantly. Yet this is also due in part to the fact that her positions render her an acceptable autistic, a well-behaved autistic willing to conform to hegemonic normative standards and compliance as ethics. In other words, Temple Grandin's articulated ideas about autism and autistic people fit into the pathology paradigm that dominates autism discourse.

Temple Grandin is frequently tokenized or used as a nice window-dressing -- to borrow Jim Sinclair's term, she is frequently paraded at mainstream autism conferences and symposia as a self-narrating zoo exhibit. Because she is autistic and her statements align with those articulated from an ableist sensibility, neurotypicals advancing the views that autism presents a problem of pathology can claim authenticity or legitimacy for their position through Temple Grandin's reiteration of the same sentiments.

Temple Grandin believes that "high-functioning" autistics are talented, intelligent, and necessary to human survival, while "low-functioning" autistics cannot function or live independently, and thus should be cured in the present and prevented from existing in the future. Both I and others have thoroughly deconstructed the false dichotomy of high and low functioning, but suffice it to say that such claims not only reinforce ableist hegemony, but also reinforce a capitalist notion of success and value in that only people who can produce are worthy of inclusion in society; all others are burdens.

Her belief that nonverbal autistics are tragic and pitiable evokes a sense of moral disgust and outrage, particularly when coupled with the many voices of nonspeaking autistics demanding a claim to voice, to agency, to capacity -- asserting competence, self, and pride.
bunny poker live roulette mod apk
Her belief that the only autistics who ought to be considered valuable and thus valued are those who have a job and learn to function within neurotypical norms is colored inescapably by classism and ableism -- the very systems of oppression that serve so frequently to reinforce the violence of capitalism.

Her belief that autistic children should be conditioned to normalize their behavior, communication, and movements for the sake of indistinguishability alone is profoundly ableist and disappointing, especially when considering the long history of violence exacted against disabled people for the crime of failing to uphold hegemonic standards of normativity.

Temple Grandin poses an answer to the question of whose bodies/minds ought to be valued and whose ought to be discredited and removed for the good of society. Her answer is a deeply disturbing one, and must concern those of us who wish to see the deconstruction of societal ableism, because both her own rhetoric and how she is rhetoricized serve only to perpetuate it.

  3. I find this post intriguing, yet more of a critique on society (and its laziness) rather than on Temple herself. When coming from a place of fear, I can agree on becoming afraid of what one person says becoming "gold" to society. It's frightening when our own beliefs and experiences are challenged. But that's just it. Temple is speaking about her own beliefs, what worked for her. (Lazy) people can believe what they want, but the reality is, the world is a scary place when people can't simply take bits and pieces from others experiences and throw away what doesn't resonate. The "us against the world" mentality is what gets us into trouble, I find. But MY belief is (and it's only my belief), the more of us who can open up and share our experiences, the better the world will be (for our people and those who are seeking to understand us). Temple has helped me greatly to understand visual thinking, however, I totally disagree with some things she believes. But I'm not warning others to stay away - that would be unfair and would also discount their own intelligence. Totally just my own take! And totally well written. :^) Thanks for sharing your thoughts. Looking forward to reading more.

  4. Hoooly crap, there is a lot of academic lingo and jargon in this article. I checked the "Definitions" page because I wanted to share this article with my friends on Facebook, and I also wanted to make sure it was accessible to them in terms of reading and understanding. It's difficult enough to grapple with intersectionality of oppressions, but to also have to figure out what the "pathology paradigm" and "rhetoricized" mean at the same time can kind of throw folks off. I know I personally had a long time coming with the words "hegemony" and "agency"—it took a long time in college for me to really grasp what those terms mean because people kept using them and when I asked, no one was able to really explain what it meant.

    Perhaps some of these concepts could be described with a little less academia?

    1. As the person responsible for coining the term "pathology paradigm," let me try to demystify that particular bit of jargon...

      The pathology paradigm is the set of basic assumptions underlying the mainstream view of autism and other neurological variants. Those assumptions can be summed up as:online times tables games online math multiplication games slot games history play online casino win real money casino san clemente bonus code for 7 reels casino xtreme slots apple
      1.) There's one "normal" or "healthy" type of brain.
      2.) If your brain differs substantially from "normal," there's Something Wrong With You.

      Neurodiversity activists are out to create a cultural shift from the pathology paradigm to the neurodiversity paradigm, which is based in the idea that there's not one "normal" or "right" kind of brain, any more than there's one "normal" or "right" culture or ethnicity.

      Hope that's of some help!

    2. Love the explanation of pathology paradigm. Thanks muches!

    Well written! Don't let people tell you to dumb things down. Help them learn up. As an autistic academic myself I've worried about people trying to make me a shiny autistic, or to have people take my personal opinions on autism as more than my personal opinions. Perhaps, using her own hierarchical marginalizing structure, she's not as high functioning as she thinks if she cannot realize the damage she is doing. I heard that her mother's also posting interestingly problematic things as well.

    1. ^This comment is hfa elitism. If you think writing something to the level of someone who's not as "academic" as you are is "dumbing it down" then you have some ablist in you. How rude.

    Been to several Conferences that Temple has been at, I have never in person heard her Disparage anyone with any form of Autism, eather High Functioning or low Functioning, Also her Success is the fact that she is Succeeding where others says she couldn't cause of what she has and who she was supposed to be.

    1. I agree. I have heard her advocate for ALL Autistics, and has clearly stated that given methods to overcome communication and sensory issues they can display average to above average intelligence. She always says that Autistics should be recognized for their abilities, rather than their limitations. She has never wanted a cure for Autism, or said that Autism is tragic... So I'm not sure where most of the information in this article is coming from. Temple has dedicated her life to helping Autistics, and her experiences have changed the face of Autism FOR THE BETTER. She doesn't deserve this kind of bashing and slander.

    2. I've read several pieces of her writing, including her book "Thinking in Pictures," and Lydia Brown is absolutely correct. Grandin has regularly written about so-called "high-functioning" autistic people as if they're more intelligent and really, more evolved in general, while disparaging "low-functioning" autistic people as truly disabled. She even suggested that vaccines and other chemical pollution might be responsible for turning a would-be "high-functioning" child into a "low-functioning" one. This feeds into the myth that "low-functioning"/"real" autism = brain damage, and it also lends credence to the anti-vax movement, which is responsible for several disease outbreaks due to a failure to vaccinate children, and which is backed by no scientific evidence whatsoever.

      This isn't "slander." Nothing in the post is factually inaccurate. It's a critique of things that Grandin really has written and said, and it's being written by another autistic person. Why is their perspective less valuable than Temple Grandin's?

    3. If I may ask, when were those statements published? I'm just curious because it may be another example of using old data by the anti-vax movement. That said, I do agree with you on it not being slander and with Grandin's words being in need of critique.

    4. The updated edition of Thinking in Pictures was published in 2006.

      She always struck me in person as someone who wants people to Succeed no matter there label, She uses High and low Function as ways to talk about the Differences in Autism and she is talking to a vast Abundances that may think the high end isn't Autism at all, I run into that at our local Autism Confernce here.

      Lydia has a right to write this Opinion and state what she thinks but Temple has given voice to many and hasn't been on the Cure bit she is publicly aganist it, she has stated that she Personally thinks that there might be a Environmental Component to Autism but she Isn't sure, just cause that is her opinion doesn't mean that she is Resposable for Anti-Vax people Twisting her Opinion into fact that they do a lot of cherry picking Option and theory as fact.

    6. Would somebody PLEASE provide some direct quotes, because I have seen/read Dr. Grandin's work, and have yet to find anything that you are saying. You are making accusations and judgments against her based on interpretations rather than what she actually said.

      I am not in any way impressed by Grandin's "academic" paper in which she argues that autistics do not have "human consciousness" and instead, have consciousness somewhere between human and animal consciousness. We don't need people in the spectrum defining us as sub-human. It is completely possible to admire SOME of a person's work while calling them out on areas that are profoundly troubling.

    9. “In an ideal world the scientist should find a method to prevent the most severe forms of autism but allow the milder forms to survive. After all, the really social people did not invent the first stone spear. It was probably invented by an Aspie who chipped away at rocks while the other people socialized around the campfire. Without autism traits we might still be living in caves.”
      ― Temple Grandin, Thinking in Pictures, Expanded Edition: My Life with Autism

    10. Criteria for what autism is changes too quickly to make any of this relevant. It's possible that one day, we will learn that self injurious behavior is caused by a by product of autism but not A.S.D itself (i.e correlation doesn't equal causation). Would a world without self injurious behavior be so bad? Or terrible stomach pains? Curing these aspects of what we now consider to be autism makes sense. And I'd like to think that's what Temple is saying.

  8. This articulates well why I've felt uncomfortable reading much of what she says.

    Have you considered putting together a longer, more detailed version of this -- which could include reference to, and analysis of, specific statements (with sources)? I, for one, would be interested.

      At the moment, all of my copies of Temple's books are in a different state than the one in which I am physically located, so I can't make a comprehensive sourced list.

      But here are two quotes from Temple courtesy of Amanda Baggs:

      From the updated edition of Thinking in Pictures:

      Page 56:

      "There is concern among people with Asperger’s that genetic testing could eliminate them. This would be a terrible price to pay. Many gifted and talented people could be wiped out. A little bit of autism genetics may provide an advantage though too much creates a low-functioning, non-verbal individual. The development of genetic tests for autism will be extremely controversial."fruit machine nutrients mississippi coast casino concerts online poker las vegas casino top spin online cricket game miccosukee casino in miami florida

      Page 122:

      "Many individuals with high-functioning autism or Asperger’s feel that autism is a normal part of human diversity. Roy, a high-functioning autistic, was quoted in New Scientist, “I feel stabbed when it comes to curing or treating autism. It’s like society does not need me.” There are numerous interest groups run by people on the autism/Asperger spectrum and many of them are upset about attempts to eliminate autism. A little bit of the autism trait provides advantages but too much creates a low-functioning individual who can not live independently. The paradox is that milder forms of autism and Asperger’s are part of human diversity but severe autism is a great disability. There is no black-and-white dividing line between an eccentric brilliant scientist and Asperger’s.

      "In an ideal world the scientist should find a method to prevent the most severe forms of autism but allow the milder forms to survive. After all, the really social people did not invent the first stone spear. It was probably invented by an Aspie who chipped away at rocks while the other people socialized around the campfire. Without autism traits we might still be living in caves."

    2. Ah, I certainly understand books being scattered -- thanks for response and the quotes.

      I've definitely seen her "There's no black-and-white dividing line between Asperger's and computer geeks/brilliant scientists" line in multiple places. Which is problematic in itself. But then she seems to think that there *is* some back-and-white line between good and bad, acceptable and unacceptable, just enough and too much autism? Um....yeah, this is really problematic.

  9. "Temple Grandin is functionally the world's only famous autistic person"

    I didn't read any more after this. Clearly, the author doesn't know what they are talking about or they have an odd view of what fame is. Either way, that piece of a sentence discredits the author and makes them unreliable.

    I wonder how many Facebook followers or appearances on television shows Carly Fleischmann needs to have before the author considers her famous. How many books she needs to coauthor?

    How many Nobel Prize nominations does Jacob Barnette need before he's famous?

    Are Dan Aykroyd and Bill Gate not famous enough, or is it simply that they haven't openly talked about autism enough?

      The thing here is, when a person "comes out as" Autistic, the response they get is not "Oh, like Bill Gates?" or "Oh, like Raun Kaufman?" or any of these people. At this point is ALWAYS, "Oh, like Temple Grandin?" or "Oh, like Rain Man?" As far as real people go, Temple Grandin is the go-to reference point for autism and Autistic people at this point. That may be starting to change, but it hasn't yet, especially for people who either have almost no information about or only know the "Awareness" version of autism.

      I read the entire article, and it's full of false accusations against Temple Grandin. Temple Grandin doesn't disparage anyone for their level of functioning, and has said that she believes those considered to be "low functioning" can indeed possess average to above average intelligence given modes of communication and sensory integration. Temple NEVER advocated for a cure, either... Temple is not the only known Autistic in the spotlight. What about Carly Fleischmann? Or Tito Mukhopadhyay? They are both widely known Autistics who were considered "low functioning."

Still, the only person on that list besides Temple Grandin who's a household name in general is Bill Gates, and 1) he's not confirmed to be Autistic and 2) he's not treated as the go-to guy on autism in this culture, to which all other Autistics' experiences are likened (and yes, this is a thing that happens). Temple Grandin has a significant amount of cultural power - surprisingly more than possibly even the average "autism parent" - and there's a lot of responsibility that comes with that, which she doesn't wholly seem to recognize in some of how she frames and discusses things.

      as a person who is NOT autistic, i asked some of my also not-autistic/neuroatypical friends to name a famous person who is autistic. harga mobil all new chevrolet spin ndb online casinos roulette wheel zero colour ace kingdom casino no deposit bonus cash o lot casino casino room bonus codes november 2018

      the result? the ones who could name ANY person at all with certainty (15-20 out of around 30 people) named only one: Temple Grandin. 1 person said, "dan akroyd? didn't he say somethin about being autistic or something?" one. so, out of thirty people, about two thirds could positivley identify a "famous" autistic, and all of them save one named only ONE person. that's a small personal survey, but i think it's telling. we are all well educated, intellectual type people. we are not ignorant to nuero issues, and many of us have friends or family members that are nueroatypical.

      saying that temple grandin isn't the "most famous autistic" is really denial on your part. just because YOU know a bunch of autistic people you consider "famous" doesn't mean that in the general population, they are famous, or even KNOWN.

      i mean, i know a whole SLEW of folk and LGBT positive bands, that are more listened to and acknowledged in my area, but i woudl say if you said, "name a band with lesbians in it" most people would say "Indigo girls!" even though they are not listened to nearly as much in my circles as other bands.

      sorry, but temple grandin is absolutely the most "famous" or broadly known autistic, and probably for most people the ONLY autistic person they have read about.

  10. I second the assertion that saying "I didn't read any more after this" makes one look ignorant.

    Lydia's point was that Temple Grandin is the only household name known in large part because she is autistic. She is the go-to reference point these days whenever someone wants to know about autistic behavior. Dan Aykroyd and Bill Gates are known for other things, and their real or alleged autism is merely a curious side note. Bill Gates' Wikipedia entry doesn't even mention Autism or "Asperger's."

    I didn't recognize the name Jacob Barnette until I Googled the name just now and remembered that he was that wunderkind who was mentioned briefly in the news a while ago. Hardly a household name comparable to Temple Grandin. For better or for worse, all the Nobel nominations in the world does not make one widely known.

    I had never heard of Raun Kaufman or the movie you mentioned, but from what I'm reading, he seems to be all about "curing" Autism, which makes him a eugenicist in my book. I for one am quite glad he's not terribly famous, at least among my generation.

    1. The reason she is the biggest (but not only) household name for Autism is because she was the first to shatter the stigma that Autistics have limited potential. She is a pioneer worthy of respect, because she has paved the way for many Autistics to pursue success where the world would've never allowed it otherwise.

    2. Except if you actually read her, she doesn't say that ALL autistic people have normal/unlimited potential, only those at her "functioning level" or above, who receive early intervention therapy like she did.

    3. I can't believe there's another person that isn't up with current events. Jacob was all over the news. People at work approached me about it. You are misinformed about Raun Kaufman. His is no more a eugenicist than your every day ABA therapist. He has success with Son Rise therapy, much like others have had success with ABA.

      Since people felt I needed to read the article, even though right at the beginning I found an obvious mistake, I read the article anyway. It was poorly written and twisted the words of Temple Grandin around. I think the author didn't sign his/her name to it because he/she knew it was BS.

    4. “Since people felt I needed to read the article, even though right at the beginning I found an obvious mistake, I read the article anyway.”

    5. Eugenecist or not (and given the heavy bias towards normalcy/"indistinguishability from peers" I would not be surprised if that's a prevalent belief, if not by another name), ABA and its supporters have other problems. See Julia Bascom's "Loud Hands" for example.

      Melissa M.--yes, she is worthy of respect. That doesn't make her immune from criticism. She's a public figure.

      Any of us who write or speak or publish for the public make ourselves open to criticism of our words and ideas and their implications.

      I respect Ms. Grandin on a lot of levels. And I find a lot of her statements really troubling and in need of critique.

    7. Dan Akyroyd has self-identified as having Asperger's, but he doesn't seem to talk frequently about it. I would doubt that *most* of the movie-going public even knows he's on the spectrum; he's certainly not famous *for* that in the way that Grandin is.

      Musicians Moby and Adam Young have also openly identified themselves as Asperger's, but I similarly doubt that their names are what springs to mind if you ask most people to name one famous autistic person.

      Bill Gates has *never* identified himself as being on the spectrum--it is entirely popular speculation that he is. (And frankly, I think it's an incredibly unfair thing to do to someone, to publicly identify them as autistic against their apparent wishes.)

      I would have no idea how many Nobel nominations one needs in order to be famous, particularly since Nobel nominations are kept secret for 50 years after they're made. Most people wouldn't know who most of the Nobel Prize *winners* even are off the tops of their heads. I don't, and I at least listen to the announcements every year; most of the general public probably doesn't even do that.

  11. I agree with almost all of what you've written, but I have three comments.

    1. As I understand the term, the movie "Temple Grandin" is not a documentary. It is a movie about her young adulthood, adapted and played by actors and using a script.

    2. I found some of the academic jargon difficult to access.

    3. I think the title of your piece is misleading. This may be a difference in the way I think of words versus how you think of them, but I still want to comment. Your piece isn't about critiquing Temple Grandin The Person, it is critiquing her ideas, statements, and the function she plays in society and the roles society gives her. These are all valid things to critique. The title, "Critiquing Temple Grandin", however, makes me think you're going to critique Temple Grandin as a person, as in critique the essence of her humanity or attack her personally. As I said, you have not done this, and I think your critiques of her ideas and society's ideas about her are valid. Were you to critique her as a human being, or anyone else for that matter, I think that would be highly innapropriate, objectifying, and disrespectful.I think a more accurate (if longer) title would be "Critiquing Temple Grandin's Ideas and Ideas About Temple Grandin".

    1. That's just the difference between "critiquing" and "attacking" someone. The author is doing the former, so I think the title is appropriate.

  13. I think there is room for interpretation. We simply do not know if kids and adults on the severe end of autism are happy living their lives. I do not say thaat they are 'bad', or 'damaged', or should be eliminated. Aside from a few adults who have learned to type to communicate, (and if you say we can't generalize from who Grandin is to who everyone else is, then we cannot generalize from a few people who type), we know that many people on the severe side of the spectrum are unable to live independent lives, limited in what/how they eat, what/how they choose....would any of use choose to live like that? I think not. And if you are an adult person with autism who strongly believes in neurodiversity, as I do, then ask your self: "Would I trade places with a guy in a group home who is dependent on a caregiver for bathroom use and food prep and all his activities of daily living?" would you answer yes? Because I would not. I am happy to support all persons with challenges and recognize that we all deserve a good life, but trade places? Not in a milion years. And I don't think Temple is advocating for eugenics for people diagnosed on the severe end, but is telling it like she sees it.

    1. Would you trade places with me? I have what a lot of people have told me is one of the more severe cases of Sensory Processing Disorder they've ever run across. I also have two visible disabilities - cleft lip and palate and ectodermal dysplasia - which make most people assume I can't speak or eat (or think...) properly offhand. I have a number of other chronic health problems as well, which the average person wouldn't necessarily know.boost mobile black friday sale 2018 south beach casino slot machines bonus casino no deposit blog gear slots wow wheeling west virginia casino age limit

      Most people's answers to the above would tend to be no. So am I supposed to take from that fact, based on the logic presented above, that, because other people wouldn't want to be (like) me, I should be changed, or that there should be no more people like me?

      Because that is what's being discussed here. The following quote from 'Thinking in Pictures' does not confine itself to "Well, I sure wouldn't want to have the experiences of a 'low-functioning' Autistic!," nor is it going to be taken to mean such by most people: "In an ideal world the scientist should find a method to prevent the most severe forms of autism but allow the milder forms to survive."casino near panama city beach florida ways to earn more money uk roulette casino las vegas 12 win mobile casino

      We DO know that abuse of developmentally disabled people is rampant in places like group homes, which has far more to do with why I'd be reticent to trade places with somebody in one, than anything having to do with severity of autism.

      I don't think Grandin THINKS she's advocating for eugenics, but I don't think she's really thinking through the implications of her position that "mild" autism should be allowed to survive for its usefulness, but "severe" autism that makes people unable to speak or live independently should be cured.

      All I can say is that Helen Keller relied upon a caregiver every day of her life, and she considered her life worth living. If it had not been for Anne Sullivan we would never have known what an amazing person she was. Does that mean that she did not enjoy life or have the right to live it before Anne Sullivan came along? So she needed constant assistance, big deal. She was to write books and support herself, and her caregiver. Would I want to be both blind and deaf? No. Do I think that Helen Keller didn't enjoy her life and thought it was tragic? She says that her life was enjoyable, rewarding, and fulfilling. And Helen Keller didn't go around judging other blind or deaf people by their ability to function in society.

    4. I know my reply is coming into this conversation more than a year late, but perhaps someone will see this and it will help them. Unfortunately, you're wrong about Helen Keller not judging people. She only associated herself with the blind community and rejected the Deaf community--she did not support the use of ASL and insisted on speaking. My information came from the 3rd Edition of "Disability, Society, and the Individual" by Julia Smart. It's a very thorough and interesting crash course on understanding the disability experience and tackling one's conscious and unconscious biases.

  14. The claims against Temple Grandin in this article are inflammatory and slanderous. She has never even remotely suggested the "removal" or discarding of anyone. Temple Grandin has never said that a person's worth is related to their level of functioning, and she has never even implied that "low functioning" Autistics weren't valuable. She has never said that they cannot function, or that they should be normalized. In fact, Temple Grandin says over and over again that they should NOT be normalized, that society should embrace their talents and abilities rather than focus on their disabilities. She does encourage treatments that help Autistics overcome challenges that get in the way of their abilities (i.e. sensory therapies), but that's for the benefit of the Autistic, and is not the same as "normalizing" them. She has said time and time again that given a way to communicate and overcome sensory issues those considered to be "low functioning" aren't low functioning at all, and can demonstrate average to above average intelligence. I just watched a documentary called "Talking Back to Autism" where she expresses that very clearly. When she speaks about Autism being tragic she's referring to the Autistics whose symptoms are so severe that it makes it hard for them to live happily. If you feel no pity for those who can't live happily, or if you feel no pity for the families who are devastated by their inability to cope with Autism then that makes YOU the insensitive one! She has never said Autism itself is tragic, and she has not advocated for a cure. The reason Temple Grandin is a token to society is because she beat the odds, and thus changed the face of Autism, shifting it from a very negative stereotype to one where Autistics can have limitless potential. For that she deserves some respect, not bashing. She has a voice, and she's using it to spread an understanding of Autism to the general public. She has also donated herself to science to help professionals develop treatments that are more efficacious. Her work is dedicated to helping Autistics, and helping NTs help Autistics... Not "ablism." While she is not representative of all Autistics, it has been made clear that Autism is a spectrum. It makes me sad that anyone, especially an Autistic, would lash out at her for what she is doing, but Lydia seems to lash out at EVERYONE. Whenever I read anything of Lydia's the only message I take from it is that she has a deep hatred for white wealthy people, and anyone who expresses an opinion that's different than hers. When an Autistic spokesperson spreads nothing but negativity and animosity they are creating a very harmful representation of Autistics to the rest of the world. The dialogue needs to be about how to help each other, not spreading more hate.

      I have never read anything stating that Temple Grandin has said "nonverbal autistics are tragic and pitiable evokes a sense of moral disgust and outrage, particularly when coupled with the many voices of nonspeaking autistics demanding a claim to voice, to agency, to capacity -- asserting competence, self, and pride." Why would she have met with Carly Fleischmann if she believed that to be true?

      Shain, don't twist my words, they are very literal here. I said that it makes it HARD for them to live happily, not that they CAN'T live happily. There's a difference between saying someone symptoms are tragic, and saying that person as a whole being is tragic. I'll be the first to say that when my sensory issues are so bad I can't leave the house or have a good time it is TRAGIC, and no I'm not living happily at that point. Does that make sense? The problem here is people are taking very black and white statements, and putting their own spins on it.

      Deletecasino barcelona poker online casino slots winners 2018 slot machine slot machine creative ways to make money uk
    8. Context is important. No one's arguing that sensory issues, or being nonspeaking in a speaking world, or any of that is not difficult. The problem is that these statements are being made in the context of a larger and/or wholly different discussion, where it frequently does come to whether we or certain segments of our population deserve to exist as we are and with what level of interference. To pretend like that discussion isn't happening, or to act as if it isn't and make statements that play into it, is irresponsible, especially when you've been given a forum for what you have to say.

    9. You have basically summed up what I don't like about TG. I like many things that she says, and she is a complicated person, but on the flip side there are many things that I don't agree with. NOTHING about autism is tragic. NOTHING. Having cancer is tragic. Having your child die from measles because you were afraid of vaccines is tragic. Not being able to communicate verbally? Not tragic. Needing assistance to live independently? Not tragic, difficult perhaps, but not tragic. Having a child with autism? Not tragic. My son has been non verbal, he was practically inconsolable as an infant, he spent almost a year doing nothing by sleeping and crying every minute he was awake. Tragic? No. What would have been tragic is giving up. What my son is is ALIVE, and intelligent, and amazing. Now he is an honors student. Now he can navigate his own life and avoid triggers that shut him down. Yes, I pity families that are "devastated by their inability to cope with autism". Treatments that are more efficacious? Seriously? The only thing that kept TG's life from being a "tragedy" was her parents belief that she was an intelligent child worthy of respect, love, and help. Finding a cure, trying to separate the worthy from the unworthy, and looking at autistic people as lab rats are not good things, and all things that TG has said and supports.

    1. See above where, in response to Anonymous' post on August 11, 2013 at 12:22 PM, the author quotes from the updated edition of Temple Grandin's 'Thinking in Pictures':

      Page 56:uptown casino tea sd how to make more money now cool cat casino login real money slots mobile double bubble slot mobile best mobile network in canada 2018

      "There is concern among people with Asperger’s that genetic testing could eliminate them. This would be a terrible price to pay. Many gifted and talented people could be wiped out. A little bit of autism genetics may provide an advantage though too much creates a low-functioning, non-verbal individual. The development of genetic tests for autism will be extremely controversial."

      Page 122:
      play online blackjack for real money baccarat wiki lakeside inn lake tahoe reviews compare mobile company uk win roulette every time
      "Many individuals with high-functioning autism or Asperger’s feel that autism is a normal part of human diversity. Roy, a high-functioning autistic, was quoted in New Scientist, “I feel stabbed when it comes to curing or treating autism. It’s like society does not need me.” There are numerous interest groups run by people on the autism/Asperger spectrum and many of them are upset about attempts to eliminate autism. A little bit of the autism trait provides advantages but too much creates a low-functioning individual who can not live independently. The paradox is that milder forms of autism and Asperger’s are part of human diversity but severe autism is a great disability. There is no black-and-white dividing line between an eccentric brilliant scientist and Asperger’s.

      "In an ideal world the scientist should find a method to prevent the most severe forms of autism but allow the milder forms to survive. After all, the really social people did not invent the first stone spear. It was probably invented by an Aspie who chipped away at rocks while the other people socialized around the campfire. Without autism traits we might still be living in caves."

      Hope that helps.

      I don't think the author intended to draw "all" of her claims from ONLY the excerpts quoted above. These are merely two examples that serve to illustrate part of the point that the author was trying to make.

      "I guess people will interpret things how they like."

      The author, by providing these examples, shows that she has at least some textually supported basis (evidence) for making her claims about Temple Grandin. Saying that "people will interpret things how they like" can be said about ANY interpretation. If you have a competing interpretation, or if you wish to criticize, object to, or reject the author's claims, then you will need to find some kind of substantive reason (argument and/or evidence of your own) to do so.

Actually, Lydia is voicing something that a number of people in the Autistic community feel, which is that Temple Grandin is tokenized and often says backward and ableist things that are taken as gospel by the Autism Community (note, not the Autistic community) because they play in so well with the attitudes they already have. No hatred is coming into play here. This post is actually quite calm and level-headed and it engages with Grandin's rhetoric, not her character.

      Furthermore, who the blazing fuck are you to question Lydia's diagnosis. Diagnosis challenging is pretty much considered an unforgivable sin in the Autistic Community because of how profoundly gaslighting it is.

      Moreover, you are not qualified to diagnose Narcissistic Personality Disorder, nor would Lydia having such a diagnosis invalidate her beliefs. This widespread use of "narcissism" as an insult is profoundly ableist.

      Also, "I pray for you" is a statement that should never be said passive aggressively and you blaspheme whatever god you pray to by using prayer with xem as a weapon against someone.

      1) The first rule of Autism Club is you don't discount other people's being Autistic. You disagreeing with someone's beliefs on autism politics != them being less Autistic than you or anyone you agree with.
      2) O Self-Appointed Mentor, O Mighty Arbiter of Light and Dark, may I humbly suggest that you consider picking one religion to misappropriate for your purposes rather than throwing a mishmash in there in hopes that it makes your point more valid. Or preferably none, actually. I do not think this thing called karma means what you think it means, and, admittedly without being a religious scholar, I don't think that either Jesus or Muhammad would consider critiquing someone's views OR the cultural power they've been given to be any grave moral transgression.
      3) What definition of "Narcissism" are you using? Because nothing that can be gleaned from this post would support, for instance, a diagnosis of Narcissistic Personality Disorder, which capital-N Narcissism would suggest was the implication here.
      4) I really, truly doubt that anyone who's ever lived has never said a negative thing about another person.canal sony spin mexico online slot machine online 888 gambling age wisconsin dells casino on net bonus riviera private gold
      5) Interesting interpretation of "bringing shame upon oneself" you have there. Generally people who bring shame on themselves don't get to go to the White House or give keynote addresses as a result of their supposedly shameful actions - and I fail to see how bringing to people's attention the problems with what happens in the world and how these things are framed is shameful.
      6) Arguably you do all the same things in this post that you accuse Lydia of doing, at least by your own definition. Your post was at least as harsh as hers. So that makes you all the things you say to her, plus a hypocrite.slots for best online casino to win roulette bonus casino belge sans depot no deposit sports betting bonus gambling treatment

    3. I think Lydia has the Right to state her Opinion, I love to see a online talk in between Lydia and Temple G, cause maybe talking to each other they might be able to understand where each other comes from and understand that they both may have different POV.

    4. I don't see any hate for TG here, only criticism for some of the things that she has said. I have read many things of TG, and watched many a talk, and I find Lydia's criticism to be totally valid and substantiated. TG is cool...I like a lot of the things TG says, but she isn't the only autistic person in the world, and her views aren't the only views...thank goodness. Like every other parent of an autistic child anywhere, as soon as my son was diagnosed everyone and their cousin asked me "have you heard of Temple Grandin?...she is sooooo amazing" So I looked her up, and I was amazed....but I am also amazed by Helen Keller. Helpful to me, or my son, it was not. Nor was Autism Speaks (hate) helpful. If you read into what TG says on a regular basis, even just a teensy bit, you find the fear of being uncommunicative, the desire to cure what is not understood, not love, help, and acceptance. Yes, it is nice that there is a TG out there, but even nicer that there is a Lydia out here, telling us how it is. We need Lydia, too. And I don't think that is hateful to TG at all.

    For instance there is a genetic disease associated with PKU that directly causes an extremely disabling form of Autism... And yes that form of Autism has been cured through research...the type of research that Autism Speaks funds to help these people avoid human pain and suffering... My child died as a result of a co-morbid condition that directly causes Autism... There is no person in this thing called the Autism Community voicing these ignorant accusations that is diagnosed with any of these severe forms of Autism...

    1. 1) You know me how that you know what I do and don't understand?
      2) You've destroyed nothing. The self-advocacy community still has nothing resembling warmth for an organization that talks about us as a problem.
      3) If there are health problems with which autism is one part of or incidental to, that is NOT autism. No one's saying that something that kills someone shouldn't be dealt with. We're saying that our identities and lives aren't less or invalid because we're different, which is what a lot of the curebie stuff translates to when you get down to it.
      4) Nice sexism and assumptions about people's gender you've got there...
      5) A lot of us have got a lot of other stuff going on. Ableism as manifested through people's actions tends to cause all sorts of awesome things like PTSD, and other kinds of anxiety, and depression, and traumatic brain injury... fun, right? The results of this doesn't make what we say invalid. If anything, the fact that we've come through in one piece, even with these metaphorical scars, is to our credit.

      We have been touched. We have survived. We won't be destroyed, or allow other people to destroy those like us. Can you say the same?

    3. Hi there Bill and thanks as always Lydia for allowing me to participate on your blog as you already know I am a devil's advocate.

      My Autistic Savant skill is a very special one..I am gifted with the ability to see the true colors of each individual I encounter through their eyes or through their words... I developed the special lexical ability after losing the full use of my eyesight for over 5 years. Those colors are colors of the soul or Universal spirit and other labels that apply to this Universal essence of all humans and every other living and non living element of this complete existence that we experience.

      I see that you do walk in light Bill it is in your words and in your eyes that you provide in your avatar.. It is likely that your loved much by your family in young childhood...this can make all the difference in the world for one who walks in darkness as compared to light..

      Unfortunately or fortunately depending on how one looks at are not a logic oriented autistic person with that strength that I am also blessed with as an Autistic...I hit the lottery, if you will, best of both worlds.. I pay it back to the Universe by helping others with every fiber of my existence...using extremely complex methods of strategy to make it happen.

      But fortunately you do have much greater powers of logic than any of your friends speaking here as is evident in the limited evidence that exists in this particular thread... continued below.

    4. Continued here... I speak powerfully because i have complete confidence in what i does Lydia...unfortunately her power is power is light...she has the ability to spread great darkness in this life bring misery to herself and is her special savant skill..I saw this months ago and understood that if this darkness was modified into greater light she could make a much greater impact in this incarnation of her life...People who walk in light will give up their light or even their life to bring others to the highest peaks of light before they themselves reach this state of endless bliss...why bother with Lydia because..she is even more that she realizes...she is not really narcissistic it just looks that way...she has laser focus in believing what it is she believes regardless if it is misguided into walking in darkness..

      Autism speaks was started by a great philanthropist Bob Wright...he has reduced the pain and suffering of many people...indirectly and directly through his vision of helping people outside his family..
      casino mobile bonus poker chips set target
      The organization is run by some of the greatest science minds that are present in the now of existence... The organization is almost flawless because this is Bob Wright's philosophy as a perfectionist leader to bring light into this world for others too.. not Unlike his friend Jack Welch that shared this vision for GE and NBC leading to messages like the ones MSNBC brought to light up the world to appreciate those that were not living in the old patriarchal ways of conservative Christianity and conservative ways in general that hate homosexuals...Muslims etc.etc.etc.

    5. Now here is a little lesson about the diversity of Autism and the relative voices that appear in the autism community.. The online Autism Community is a mirage of people meeting online suggesting they are Autistic.. Whether or not they really are is all conjecture...

      Realistically it is comprised of almost 80% female outside of safe sites with moderators like Wrong Planet and Aspies for Freedom...

      Male Autistics do not usually participate in avenues like this particularly ones that are not gender neutral like I am... Statistics that currently exist supporting the 80% figure for online autism organized self-advocacy efforts among the females are also dominated by those with the reported diagnosis of Asperger's syndrome...

      It is a much different form of Autism than most... and in fact it has never been properly captured by DSMIV standards and obviously never will be in the future... the only place this form of Autism has been fully captured is in the Gillberg Criteria for Asperger's syndrome... in fact even with my language delay until age 4...I still meet all the criteria for ' Gillberg Asperger's' that actually measures what Hans Aspergers described in his lifetime pursuit to study this syndrome of great strengths in human potential and challenges as well... continued more below...

      casino games with bonus slots casinos in florida wireless access point for small business reviews online gambling queensland casino 06
    6. According to CDC statistics and the last statistics that will be recorded for Asperger's syndrome as compared to the other historical forms measured in the US.. Asperger's in total is 9% of all cases of Autism among children in the US...per those statistics.. Approximately 2% of that figure are females..

      So what that means is that this female dominated self advocacy effort comprised of close to 80% females which do present a different expression of Autism overall than males per present clinical studies.. is only representative of about 2% of the total Spectrum of Autism..

      In relative comparison Fragile X syndrome which is a direct cause of Autism comprises 5% of the total spectrum... Fragile X syndrome can be a very harsh experience in midlife as many of these individuals lose all their cognitive abilities and do often die in their 50's as a result of complications... This is another major focus of the Autism Speaks organization and exactly what Temple Grandin speaks to when she talks about research the kind that Autism Speaks supports to help these individuals with this specific form of severe associated difficulties with this specific genetic disease to help these people live a longer and reasonably comfortable life to enjoy with all our fellow human being friends...way to make money skyrim strip blackjack online gratis probability of winning slot machine jackpot emerald queen casino employee reviews multi game slot machine online

      Temple Grandin is also a savant in that she understands nature and the true interplay of humans and their other animal friends...the competition for life and the understanding that all elements of the Universe work together for the greater light even when there is relative pain and suffering to endure...She loves her animal friends and respects greatly just as the American Indians did after their kills however he takes this great American Indian Animal spirit of kindness and compassion even higher insuring their death will not be as tortuous one that existed before her great light and compassion for others came into this world.. I would die to defend someone like her because he has taken great pain and suffering out of this world for all our animal friends and doe her bet positive light effort to help all other human beings... Obviously she is human and potentially will make mistakes but I do see her whole soul in her eyes and it is nothing but light in her direction of life to make this a much a better for others including our animal friends.

    7. 'He' is what I call the spirit or christ light or whatever the label is used to describe this core element of light in everything that exists in what we view as existence.. Sorry that was a slip I try not to insert my personal beliefs in logical discussions but my light is bright enough at this fact lightening bright that it spills out as light and love even when not intended..

      And yes there is a 'masculine spirit' in Temple Grandin..she is more man that women in brain gender..Relatively speaking she is a warrior of animal rights coming in to this world and the animal spirit does love her very much... I am also a protector of this animal spirit in this world..I am making a difference in all that I fact I am doing it is a much greater purpose in my life than anything to do with Lydia and this blog that is going to be heavily viewed because of her controversial and quite frankly illogical...hatred driven viewpoint... it is further access for this light that I share here now...

    And yes, I have destroyed the hatred for the most is empirically wasn't hard to do because most of what was being said was myth are just downright lies...associated with Autism Speaks organization.. This is also fully documented and measured empirically.

    I am gender neutral myself...I know who you are...I am not mistaken as far as your biological sex. That was just to get your attention and rile you up so we could have a good disagreement and maybe learn something new, including me...I always learn something new from everyone I encounter.

    1. so if we like our Autism and think people should be Valued for who they are? so what next your going to send out people to hunt Self-Advocates down who won't Accept a cure? Why must Normal be the Highest good?

      Autism Speaks seems to have a bit of Eugnics behind to solve the Problem in this case Autism we must prevent it from Existing isn't that how most Eugnics starts?

      Autism Speaks seems to have some Values behind it that don't seem to value basic Human Rights or even the Bill of Rights, it seems to have more in common with the Idea of 'the life worth living..' then with ' We hold these Truths to be self-evedant'

    3. Don't make disingenuous statements. That's what's commonly known as being a troll, and it would make you a bully if we weren't on at least equal footing here. It's unnecessary, and you cannot claim that you care about me, let alone love me, if you'd provoke me and people I care about as a means of passing your time. Speak the truth or step out.

      Your proof would seem to be disingenuous as well. The abstract that you link to claims that "the prevalence [of PKU as a cause of autism] seems to be very low." Also:

      A condition can be caused by B condition
      B condition can be cured or prevented
      != A condition (as A condition) can be cured.

      That's like saying that, if you eliminate a cause, biological or circumstantial, of depression or PTSD, you've cured depression or PTSD. It's at very least playing fast and loose with the definition of cure, if not outright false.

      Furthermore, you claim to have "empirically" destroyed hatred of Autism Speaks, despite the fact that opposition is still extant and, if anything, has the opportunity to grow further, and yet you accuse Lydia of narcissism? Again, by the definitions of narcissism I know, you're not one to talk betting sites europe dreams online casino no deposit bonus

      Color me unimpressed by a trauma survivor who sides against the people with little to no power and with those who would try to harm us in the name of making something we are not.

    4. Kate, if PKU were the cause of Autism then why do nearly all Autistics test NEGATIVE for PKU upon testing? Don't claim a cause if it's something that a) most Autistics don't have, and b) Autism still exists in absence of it... such as vaccines.

    5. 'A' cause is not 'the' cause. This is a relatively rare form of Autism but never the less it is Autism and it can be cured.. It is a medically documented fact.

  23. I was actually glad to read this.
    Not autistic myself but a parent with an open mind and who thinks it is important to listen to and interact with autistic adults, I admit I do not understand the idolatry that is forming around T Grandin. I admit I haven't read a lot from and about her but I just felt a lack of connection or relevance for myself (that is in regards to my son). I have found a much better approach to both, his own autism and also the communication to non-autists in John E Robison.. It is indeed possible that T Grandin's fame is pushed and encouraged by certain streams in the autism 'community' because her attitudes and statements correspond with their coral uk lucky red online casino imperial palace casino biloxi entertainment roulette live online casino jackpot casino rapid city sd loose microgaming slots casino online 1 cent
    I am still recovering from shock in context with her mothers weird and public statement about adult male autists and their sexuality and am trying to NOT transmit this to my attitude towards T Gradin. But I must say I have found so many VERY interesting and insighty posts from younger autists - like you - that definitively deserve more public exposure or at least readership. It is true... sometimes your blogs are hard to read and a bit challenging (english is not my mother tongue so..argh) but it is worth it. =)
    Autism comes in so many forms and colours. I think it is obvious that ONE poster-child from the US (and who is 65 yo..)is only a very superficial way to represent the voice of autists in conferences or other public appearances..

    This is all very interesting; both the original blog and the comments.
    There are some themes running through here that need to be highlighted.

    two main points need to be addressed;best buy ipad black friday uk nokia mobile upto 2000 rs online slots 2018 easy way to make money online best online 3d slots san jose casino with slot machines

    In the first place there are only two passages quoted in reply to some comments that support Lydia's contention.closest casino to pittsburg kansas online casino bonus liste slot plus

    And neither do any more than express that Dr. Grandin sees that while those less severely affected may be able to apply those differences to their advantage, those more severely affected find it much harder to do so and that those are the ones who need treatments to help prevent the severe effects allowing them the ability to cope.

    The second point is Temple Grandin's stature and position as a leading example of an Autistic success and the way this is being interpreted as having racist, class, age, and ableism overtones.

    The first points are made early in the piece where the writer declares: '... despite the fact that her experiences are inextricably linked to her race, her class, and the time period during which she came of age ...'

    Yet what else is to be expected of someone talking of their own experience, this is inevitable surely, for any speaker and it is only because of that background that Dr. Grandin did succeed, because of those points and because she had a very determined and far seeing Mother.

    I wholeheartedly concur with her claims that growing up in the 50s was a great advantage. I did and am forever grateful to my parents that I was taught, manners and courtesy and how to behave either in public or on social occasions.

    It has amazed me how few of my peers over the years had that advantage; for advantage it certainly was. I had and have no fear of any occasion as I have the refuge of knowing how to play it. What is expected and how to do it. I can't help thinking what an advantage that could be for any Autistic deposit casino withdraw winnings casino hacks online casino hackers

    And my family were from working class stock.

    Lydia goes on to claim that: 'Temple Grandin believes that "high-functioning" autistics are talented, intelligent, and necessary to human survival, while "low-functioning" autistics cannot function or live independently, and thus should be cured in the present and prevented from existing in the future.belterra casino louisville ky new slots no deposit bonus uk star trek online ship weapon slots
    online casino reviews mac online ellen slots
    Now, while the first part of that is true, the conclusion '... and thus ...' is far from the case and is an extremely bad example of bias.

    Dr. Grandin is makes the reasonable conclusion that high functioning Autistics (incuding those diagnosed as Asperger's) have many abilities that differ from and in some cases exceed those of the average population and that those more severely affected are do find it far more difficult to function or maintain an independent life due to those problems. Some indeed, such as the wonderful Carly Fleischmann are very able advocates for the fact that the difficulties are in communication, not intelligence.
    Dr. Grandin also is quoted as writing that: 'In an ideal world the scientist should find a method to prevent the most severe forms of autism but allow the milder forms to survive.'
    And the issue here is no doubt her use of the word prevent, yet all that means is to stop it affecting people severely, i.e. treating it which is no more than so many scientists are trying to do already. To take that as meaning a 'cull' of those severely affected is again adding far more to the meaning of what she said.

    Secondly that the original blog had no supporting evidence only the writer's bias, if not prejudice.

    1. "And the issue here is no doubt her use of the word prevent, yet all that means is to stop it affecting people severely..."

      I think that's very debatable.

      Autistic people say often that our autism is an intrinsic part of who we are. And it doesn't break down neatly along lines of "mild" and "severe" as to which autistic people say that. Some "severe" aspect of autism could be just as valuable and intrinsic to some person as any "mild" or "positive" aspect could be.roulette online practice casino cruise southwest florida royal vegas online casino canada stan james mobile casino best uk online slots jocuri casino noi online

      Most of my own autistic traits are double-edged swords...disabling in some contexts, strengths in others. You don't necessarily help someone just by decreasing the intensity of their autistic traits so they're affected less severely--the "severity" of those traits might be immensely valuable to them.

      I am all in favor of research to get people the alleviation of pain and frustration that they desire.

      But how can we be assured, even if we're only going after "severity" of certain symptoms, that we're not taking something away from someone that they wouldn't choose to give up, because that trait has a positive aspect to them that we can't necessarily see?

    2. Chavisory, Science and the greatest science minds of our time work from waking to sleeping...each... to ensure to the best of their ability ...that the best of both worlds of strengths and alleviation of human suffering and pain are counterbalanced..

      It is not your place as an emotionally driven person to ever be able to understand the full complexity of science or what fully comprises the Autism Spectrum..

      But with some effort you can come to understand it better and have a more balanced perspective... I wish that for you my friend as you are a very nice person that can walk in light...

    3. Just because scientists work hard and mean well (and they do, for the most part), does not mean they have enough perspective on the internal reality and desires of other people to not unintentionally do harm.

      Doctors, in particular, routinely estimate the quality of life of disabled people as lower than disabled people themselves rate their quality of life.

      Chavisory that is a nice ideological viewpoint and in effect is definitely true for each human being including autistic people and people with any type of disability...however the system we currently have in place to explore every potential that people who are in pain and suffering have a better life is the only one and best one we have...there is always room for improvement and there is always room for mistakes...but the practice that is science and the the light that is great leads to better answers for everyone potentially involved...

      You can't cut people's abilities in half. I wish my father, who had a 175 IQ, had been able to separate his brilliant mind from his crippling mental illness....but he couldn't. My son says "I wish there was a superhero who could fix my game" when it crashes, but he knows there isn't. You can't say "on one hand, I believe that there are parts of the autistic mind that are better than those of a NT mind" (something I agree with) and then say "but that is the only part of you that should exist, and if I could CUT THE REST OF YOUR MIND OUT OF YOU I would". That is like saying "I like that whole heightened sense of touch and smell you've got going on, but that BLIND bit...that's got to go." It's offensive. I'm offended and I'm not even autistic.

  27. This is a very disingenuous post. Your writing is saturated by academic jargon, but like empty calories they do not nourish your argument. You didn't provide any quotes, citations, or context for your *assertions* of Temple Grandin's beliefs; just bias and rhetoric.

    1. This isn't portraying itself as journalism, nor as an academic paper. Quotes supporting the position have been listed in the comments on request of others, but as far as I know, blog posts on someone's own page have never required the kind of academic rigor you're asking for.

      She doesn't have to. TG is famous, everything she says is out there in the public view. If you read anything that TG has ever written you know that these are the opinions of TG. Lydia knows her audience. That is exactly why a critique of TG is needed, because you have to LOOK to find anything that differs from what TG is saying about autistic people. If I, as a parent, had stopped with TG I would not understand my son the way I do. If I hadn't thought a lot of the things she said were BS, I wouldn't have found Lydia.

  28. If your definition of "no credibility" and "pointless rant" would also extend to most other blogs and newspaper editorials, which tend to have a point of view (or "bias") and are under no obligation to contain citations. But by that point, these terms basically become meaningless dismissals based on form and tone rather than actual critiques of content.

      I disagree. The only opinions Lydia seems to value are ones that agree with her stance. I have tried to have constructive conversations with her, but she has never once replied to me, which demonstrates that she thinks my point of view is beneath her, unworthy of acknowledgment. After expressing my opinion on a prior blog she allowed one of her supporters to bully me for HOURS, and tell me to kill myself. She didn't delete the comments, stop the violent dialogue, and did not reply to any messages I sent asking for her to address the matter. I am obviously beneath her, only worthy of abuse. It's a slap in the face that she would condone that kind of maltreatment, and then write an article like this.

    2. Not everyone's as battle-happy as you and I (prolly the smarter thing, actually), and just because they run a blog doesn't mean they have the spoons for a throw-down with everyone who comments.

      And if I recall correctly, the discussion you reference was the one where you came out with some backhanded feel-good crap about people being able to choose their feelings or simply get over things, and when I said that was triggering and not okay, you kept up until a couple people jumped in to ward you off. Turns out you could dish it out, but not take it, and ironically enough, you were the one who simply couldn't brush things off and feel fine about everything in the end, and then tried to make everyone feel guilty about that. Lydia wasn't responding because you'd come into her comments and started being a jerk to someone she knows and likes, which is a perfectly reasonable thing to do.

  30. Lydia was quite honest in that she published a "Critique." If I may,...
    Noun: A detailed analysis and assessment of something, esp. a literary, philosophical, or political theory.

    Verb: Evaluate (a theory or practice) in a detailed and analytical way: "the authors critique the methods used in research".

    Synonyms: criticism - review - animadversion

    I was expecting to read one person's opinion about Temple Grandin, and I was expecting it to be not "nice" stuff. That's what a critique is. It doesn't mean the person or item in question is bad or wrong, but a critique only focuses on the negative aspects of something.

    Honestly now, a critique is not an attack. It is an exploration of the negative aspects of a theory or philosophy.

    Calm down, folks. She told you what to expect right from the get-go.

  31. It's worth pointing out the double standard that's going on here... Political correctness is a neurotypical trait. So even if Temple had made the statements she's accused of making in this article (which she didn't) expecting her as an Autistic person to censor her point of view is OPPRESSION, and ABLISM. Temple says what she means, and means what she says... black and white, 100% literal. The problem here is you're assigning personal interpretations to things she says when there is no hidden meaning to her statements. She has never said that "low functioning" Autistics should be removed, she has never advocated for a cure, she has never said Autism is a tragedy, etc... You have yet to cite where she EVER said any of that. All you have done is put your own interpretation on what she says, and that's not a fair way to pass judgment on somebody.

    1. Are you really just hauling out the tired old tropes imposed on us about how Autistics supposedly think ("black and white, 100% literal... no hidden meaning") to make an argument for why Temple Grandin can't be held responsible for what she says, and that it would be "oppressive" to expect Autistics to be able to engage in discourse about ideas on equal footing as neurotypicals? That's really paternalistic and gross.

      A critique is all about interpretations and analysis. Even assuming that an Autistic person is constitutionally incapable of understanding or intending subtext (which is patently false... people grow and change, and just because an Autistic struggles with it at one point doesn't mean that they necessarily won't develop that skill later), doesn't mean that the subtext isn't there and that the statement exists in a vacuum without cultural context. The whole point is, statements like those quoted in above comments (e.g., "In an ideal world the scientist should find a method to prevent the most severe forms of autism but allow the milder forms to survive.") have effects - whether or not they're intentional - on actual people that can be exacerbated by how much influence the speaker has or is given. Pointing that out is not censorship, especially where there's absolutely no power to back up the statement.

      Where did I say that Temple Grandin shouldn't be held accountable for what she says? I didn't, which is a perfect example of my whole point. You are reading something in black and white, adding your own color to it, and then basing your judgment on your own version of what was said. My point was that there is a double standard.

      You said that it's oppressive and ableist to critique, or "censor" (while no censorship is happening, mind you), what an Autistic person has to say because they're literal, black and white, etc. etc. THAT is a double standard right there, where we're being put on a pedestal of essentially not being able to understand the broader context of what we say. Neurotypicals and Autistics alike don't speak in a vacuum. Intent is not magic, and things have meaning whether or not the subtext was intended or understood.

The relevant points, that the wide nature of the spectrum is seldom represented...that higher functioning members are given the spotlight to the exclusion of everyone else...these points could have been made without the bitter, senseless attack on Temple Grandin. Sorry you're living with this much hate; I can only hope that expressing poison this ugly felt cathartic for you.

      Wow, you're right. This post was ALL of those things. And more! Here are MY two excerpts of venemous-hate-filled-bitter-senseless-ugly-poison from this post:

      “Temple Grandin's articulated ideas about autism and autistic people fit into the pathology paradigm that dominates autism discourse.”

      “Temple Grandin poses an answer to the question of whose bodies/minds ought to be valued and whose ought to be discredited and removed for the good of society.”

      Oh my God...*cringe*...that was some of the most venemous-hate-filled-bitter-senseless-ugly-poison rhetoric I've ever read! Which excerpts from the actual post did YOU find the most venemous-hate-filled-bitter-senseless-ugly-poison?

  35. Yes! What I find most shocking is that TG herself has admitted to having shut downs when she couldn't speak and times when she was a child that her parents had to draw her out because she was non communicative. Her parents were amazing and supportive at a time where many people put their children in to institutions. She doesn't realize how privileged she is. Also, anyone who knows anything about autistic people (or people in generally, really) knows that functionality (the way that NT people see it) is dependent on many, many factors and can therefore change from day to day. If Temple saw my son at 4 years of age, she would have dismissed him. If she saw him NOW she would be pleased by his "high functioning" , but neither of these levels of functioning are who he is as a person. My job as his parent and advocate is to help him find the sweet spots where he is comfortable in his own skin, and to know what triggers the bad moments so he can have more time in the sweet spot. When he is there, he is able to navigate the NT world, and be "high functioning"...but it is the comfort in his own skin that is important. Temple learned to self sooth so she could function in the NT world, and my son is becoming better at understanding himself and what helps/hurts him. Temple Grandin chastising autistics for stimming or being non verbal is like a diabetic who has been lucky enough to control her blood sugar with diet chiding a diabetic that wears an insulin pump. It makes no sense to me.

  36. Since Temple Grandin has autism should you refer to her words/opinions as definitive? Do you think she means them that way?

    Just learn to write more simply and elegantly if you want more people to hear your message. Find the middle ground between "I won't dumb this down" and "The NYT would never publish this".

    1. Dear Holly:

      Just learn to use a search engine for terminology you don’t know, and stop gaslighitng people on tone, and listen to their message instead of the low hanging fruit of suggesting that someone change themselves to “reach” the unreachable. Find middle ground between learning to let go of your ableist slurs and having 5,000 seats promptly.

    Thank you so much for this!
    When I first started researching autism and activism I came along Temple Gradins name right away. She appears as THE autistic self advocacy expert online to anyone new to the subject. I ended up on youtube watching a video of her at a small public gathering holding a speech. And she said something along the lines of "Yes I absolutely believe autistic people need to learn how to function like normal people. Stimming us fine but there's a place and a time for everything. Do it at home!"online gambling ohio new uk online slots online betting sites australia casinos 35 how to make money now from home
    I was so shocked! I thought until now that's the voice of autistic people and that she is endorsed by all! I wanted to speak up but didn't dare out of fear of being bullied into silence like so many times in my life. I have stayed away from Temple since then and don't regret that but I am now glad I am not the only one appauled by her statements and views.

    Well, she is a unique human being with her own opinions and perspectives on life. She is the “world's most famous autistic person”, because she was among the first to become an advocate and the longest time around. But there are other public figures around now: f. ex. Daniel Tammet, who is much younger and comes from a completely different background. And, thanks to the internet, it is much easier to share opinions, as it was back then, during most of Temple Grandin’s lifetime. Speak up your minds, people :)

  40. High functioning Aspie here. Before I proved myself to be a respected engineer in my mid 20's, I was ostracized when I was very young. I wasn't keeping up in class, I wasn't disruptive, but I just "wasn't there". I excelled and know more about some subjects that I was interested in than even the teachers, but was total failure at subjects I wasn't interested in. My teachers complained about me. Other kids picked on me, relentlessly. The social awkwardness and behavioral characteristics that I exhibited. I considered suicide multiple times in my childhood.

    Back then no one knew that in the future I would be a known contributor to the community in my field.

    Rather, it is the capitalistic nature of society. Grandin offers the next best thing, hope. She understands the cruel world cares about money, and capitalizes on that to entreat people to have hope in their autistic kids. Of course, we know that in a perfect world, all kids should be loved and raised well regardless of their having latent talents or not. But the world isn't perfect.

    Sadly, she knows her cattle system is costly but their cruel treatment in the ranches offends her sensitive soul and she feels or these animals. It is very clear to me she appealed to the love of money that the people around her have when she said cattle stampedes cost organizations money.

    Grandin is also sending an important message to the world that we high functionings can adapt. It might be late coming, but some if not most of us will get there given enough time. I went through a lot of needless suffering. What would have been ideal would be a teacher when I was young which believed in us and encouraged us to think in the different ways that we do.

    Yes, I clearly know the other end of my spectrum consists of bed-wetters who soil themselves and need a lot of practical help to cope with the world. And we all live in an imperfect world.
