Well, I hardly say that a mom who says she contemplated driving off a bridge is saying that
|the notion of murder being an acceptable response to disability
More that the mom probably needs more help and support. Geez, Brooke Sheilds said that in reference to her PPD and no one is saying that she advocates it as a standard rite of passage in bringing home a new baby.
Yeah, that video was probably staged some, but I get so tired of people thinking that having Aspergers means my son is just a little quirky and will grow up to be Bill Gates. (and all those bad behaviors they see are merely due to a lack of discipline...) Only those really close to us (and his teachers) understand the daily struggles of dealing with the tantrums, rages, fights and feeling of fristration and desparation. The media sure does not do a good job of showing the real sides of ASD either. So this video just went too far in the other direction.
But everyone is entitled to their opinion. And more money for research is probably a good thing.
