    Spam spam spam spam spam eggs and spam!

    IIAC needs more autistics. Always more autistics.

    IACC will be filled with morons who believe whatever Autism Speaks tells them, or pretend to, because they have the same agenda of contempt for actual autistic people. We’ll get more focus on insurance mandates and eugenics and no interest in supporting adults. It will continue to be a vehicle for parents to run roughshod over the rest of us. Enjoy. Be proud.

    @Landon:

    So you’re saying I shouldn’t nominate you?

    (half kidding half serious-was seriously considering nominating a whole lot of autistic bloggers)

    Maybe I should volunteer.

    Landon Bryce, I wonder what your aggressive agenda would be for the IACC, and who you think really needs “support”.

  11. Chris October 31, 2011 at 06:21 #

    Mr. Cresp, his agenda and attitude are all the more reason for him to place himself among the candidates for inclusion in the IACC.

    And Daedalus2u, it would be quite appropriate for you to apply. I think you would be an admirable addition.

    Here’s my nomination for appointment to the IACC:

    Will never happen as self diagnosed ‘Aspies’ promote themselves to be representative of autism.
