Top Ten Mental Health Myths (If You Believe this Shit, You Must Be Crazy!) #2

There is an ‘autistic community’ who all think the same things.


WRONG!
There are autistic individuals, and some support mainstream SJW ideology; others don’t. The Autistic Dark Web is an emerging movement that questions politically correct orthodoxies like neurodiversity, or the social model of disability.

People with Asperger’s like being called ‘aspies.’


WRONG!
Some people with Asperger’s support twee culture, others don’t.

You should use a trigger warning when discussing sensitive topics, to avoid hurting people with PTSD.


WRONG!
There is no conclusive evidence that trigger warnings help people with PTSD.
Actual trauma (not the campus moral panic stuff) is complex.

Such-and-such a politician is a narcissist.


WRONG!
It is one thing to say people in the public eye show evidence of narcissistic traits, but it is quite another to actually make a serious diagnosis. Only a properly trained professional is able to decide.
(Oh, c’mon! Do you really need a source for this?!)

This is or that famous historical personage had autism.

WRONG!

Some famous people like Einstein or Jefferson may have had autism, but it is impossible to prove, at this distance in time. There are other possible explanations for unusual behaviour.

(To be honest, if you need a source for this one, you’re probably beyond help!)

One of the most unintentionally hilarious things about the current postmodernist consensus is the bizarre notion that there is something incredibly edgy, provocative and radical about the moronic SJW boilerplate du jour.

TERF-punching misogynists consider themselves to be an oppressed minority, heroically fighting back against their omnipotent and omniscient cisscum oppressors. Read more Victimhood is Mighty! The Autistic Dark Web Confronts the Bitter Orthodoxies of Disability & Mental Health

Bitterness Isn’t Working: The Decline of Radical Autism & the Rise of the Autistic Dark Web

 

In the 1960s, two major civilisational value shifts occurred in Western countries. Postmodernist intellectuals shifted our traditional political and moral values away from objectivism, towards subjectivism. This means that the truth is all about what you feel, rather than having any real compelling objective weight and force. You’ve probably seen a lot of sanctified idiots whingeing about how they have a ‘right to an opinion,’ or even saying ‘this is just an opinion.’ We all know, of course, that opinions are not worth very much; because an opinion, when all is said and done, is merely that. An opinion. Nothing more. Read more Bitterness Isn’t Working: The Decline of Radical Autism & the Rise of the Autistic Dark Web
