this man is the reason to oppose genetic research about autism

Note that he acknowledges what he’s saying is likely to rub autistic people the wrong way, and his response is that he’d eugenically eliminate ALL disabled people.  Nothing to worry about!

He doesn’t seem to have any sense of responsibility for making the world a less fucked up place for his son.  Treating autistic people like shit is just the way of the universe, something we have to accept.

Isn’t it fucked up to put a video on YouTube saying you regret not aborting your child?  That kind of parental rejection is traumatizing, and it’s a dangerous assumption that the kid isn’t picking up on it.
