Here is my comment to their post:
This is a tough one for me. Tough because I look at my life and what I've done for myself and I know that I like who I am. Yes, I process things differently from others, and no, some of the "social neurons" don't exist. But I've learned enough "social graces" to mimic what I wasn't born with, and have found ways to work around certain aspie traits that trip others up. Also, I have a wonderful spouse and kid and a rich scientific career. I doubt I'd have either were I like my NT sisters and brothers (all 7 of them) because I'm the only one who is doing well for myself. And I'm truly happy. So the thought of "curing" me scares me. The thought of not being "me" because society found away to prevent autism (to prevent "another generation lost to this disorder" as another commenter put it) scares me.
BUT... then I go to meetings for autistic/aspie adults and see those who cannot take care of themselves like I can. Or interact with the autistic child of my friend who can't speak and has twice endangered the lives of his parents.
Then I'm not so sure. Not sure what is the right answer, and not sure IF there's a right answer.
