Ok, then hows about we eliminate NT's. Cerebral Palsy is a neurodiversifying thingy remember that! SMA is a neurodiversifying thingy too!


I don't want to eliminate anyone. I WANT neurodiversity to be here forever.
I wouldn't trust AS ruling anymore than any group with power over different types of persons.
It seems like human nature to want division: 'us and them' and get rid of 'them'
We would be the same way, intolerant. Maybe worse.
We do things we can't tolerate. (I rock and can't stand others rocking because it distracts me)
Without tolerance anyone can be made an enemy.
With tolerance, everyone has something to add to society.
even the NT's :lol:


The tolerant NT's are ok. It's the jerks i want to get rid of. I want neurodiversity too.

I stop watching a thread when I found Strapples being attacked on WrongPlanet forums. I don't know any background and don't want to know. I won't stick around for interactions like that. As they make me feel sad and frustrated and helpless. So I stopped watching that thread.

I don't stick around for that trash either. The minute I get attacked I hit "stop watching this thread." It is indeed a very useful button!

I know a LOT of people who hate their disabilities. I love mine, even the disease I have that makes me unable to walk and will take my arm control too.

EEK!!! So I suppose you lost the board? Or were you able to get tech support to go into the server and unban you using the MYSQL admin tool. Since this is hosted on my server I could have unbanned myself by going into the MYSQL tables and unbanning myself but that takes a lot of patience to dig through all the MYSQL code.
