While I was catching up on everyone arguing with Oil Pan, a lady came to visit Mom, and it seems like she was excited about a video she saw on Facebook[*]. Some lady found out that her son with autism lacked a hormone called Secretin, they injected him with it, his symptoms reduced more and more, until he was "Normal." The full story is here: (except Wikipedia says improvements only lasted about six weeks and additional doses did not do anything)
I knew everyone was arguing, but I didn't realize we're taking sides. oil pan 4 is outnumbered? I'll side with him.

[*] There's your problem. Facespook.

Autism represents the forward evolution of the human race. 'Normie' parents see it as a problem to be medicated. Depriving us all and irritating the autists.

Also, they called them 'coffin nails' in the 1950s. Nobody took the hint.

"We find that whole communities suddenly fix their minds upon one object, and go mad in its pursuit; that millions of people become simultaneously impressed with one delusion, and run after it, till their attention is caught by some new folly more captivating than the first."
