I’ll tell you why I might consider it though.
A few months ago, a tragic event occurred. There was a shooting in a school in Connecticut.
And then, because tragedy isn’t apparently enough for some, there were comments made about the mental health of the alleged shooter. I took the stance that his mental health was secondary to the issue, and only played a part in so much as societies treatment, marginalization and stigmatization of him would have played a far greater role in the events under scrutiny.
I have not changed my mind. But in a post entitled Asperger’s, ADHD, Autism and Violence: Is There A Connection … I suggested that ADHD was on the Autism Spectrum.
You’d think I’d said God was dead. I was questioned about my stance. I was abused about it. I was insulted, called names, and lectured.
