LeftBrain/RightBrain shame Age of Autism into half-hearted apology for gun violence

14 Mar

Via Facebook of course, not on their actual site:

Funny thing though, I would’ve thought that to be included in an image archive entitled ‘Fan pics _from_ Age of Autism’ it would’ve had to have been approved _by_ Age of Autism..?

Also note the lack of apology for the rampant anti-vaccine part of the image – just the gun violence. Age of Autism fail to see that by promoting an anti-vaccine message they are still condoning violence – just a different kind of violence.

    I commend you for raising the gun image issue.

    You are on shaky ground though in equating Age of Autism concerns over vaccines with “a different kind of violence” That kind of rhetoric like Bill Gates claims that questioning vaccine safety amounts to killing children is over the top and counter productive.

    It’s still a non-apology, then.

    I agree. They couldn’t not have approved of it, for it to have been there in the first place. They did this because they got stung.

    (wouldn’t let me edit the previous comment…)

    actually it depends on how their fan page is set up… if they allow users to post pictures without moderation, then it may not have been officially approved… somehow I doubt this is so…

    Age of Autism, from farce, to tragedy, and back to farce at breakneck speed.
