Autism Sites – is there an agenda?

I have not been posting much recently as I don’t have access to my computer. But I have been accessing the Autism sites I belong to.

I am noticing more and more that there appears to be a desperate need to be accepted as someone with a problem. A bona fide issue that demands recognition.

Some use diagnosis as a way to justify weird behaviour, others to rant. Either way it clears a path to be as obnoxious as you like, to criticise others, and to come out completely vindicated.

How do you feel about this?!
