I disagreed with Russell on how a community should treat each other, I addressed him the same way so that he could then see that was not as funny as they first thought.
I think your point is valid but I don't think you were heard, as you did not say some these behaviours, personality and 'impairments' have not been observed by them and others in their child .
There is no test for autism and their is a huge crossover of 'PDD' with many other "disorders & symtoms ". My opinion on 'autism' is probably not the same as yours. But it is clear to me there has been a epidemic of medicalising behaviour, social skills and personality traits.
I find it amazing that what is going on in the world is not seen to be connected to our development, as though neuroscientists think environment( our thinking feeling) has no play on development or gene expression.
If I disagree with your opinion I cannot be on this blog?
Do I understand you correctly?
Sorry Mr Russell Brown, I did not enjoy Miche Campbell disrespecting debunk . But you now say this way of addressing other members is now seen by yourself as not acceptable or funny.
Steven C if that is the case Auckland university over value English lit skills( words)... or another paper on unfavourable outcomes for low ELS has effected their enrollment plan. Hawkings has had, and has, many people assisting him, (technically) he can talk and write.
Before I go I would just like to suggest that maybe if this woman whom Michelle observed having difficulty with toilet training maybe you could help her with this not so small a matter.
Honey it wasn’t funny.
As far as the "Earthquake prone buildings" go, the way they classified the buildings has no basis in science or fact. I heard if the select committee does not seriously rethink it upon review of this evidence that there will be a group law suit filed by building owners.
Sweetie, you did not put him on a cross -she did and then another other thought it was funny.
If you say you don't like judgments and want a inclusive community should you should have put debunk "on a cross" ?
Have you worked with the mother you mention who is trying to toilet train both her child?
In the news today I heard about the neo-nazis in the Ukraine and then I read the building bill reform (that you had a link to ) which is allowing buildings to have no fire escape or access for disabled people.
Many Bills have been past by the govt in the recent past years that are inconsistent with existing legislation, consistent with neo nazism philosophy .
I do not think they are even aware of the situation or the world they are creating .
Its good to see Mojo at least objected to it...
"We see the removal of the current access provisions as a serious breach of New Zealand’s obligation to eliminate barriers to accessibility under article 9 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities."
NO fire escape or access if you are disabled?! Anyone else see the problem when truly insane people are writing these inconsistent bills. If we replace the word 'Disabled' with 'Jew' would that make people notice what is going on here.
What about starting an e -petition in order to ask the govt to reconsider and to stop selecting and excluding a minority group of people in NZ access to and fire escapes ?
Sorry Sacha I didn't and don't understand Martin's speak on disability vs impairment, how individuals people respond to one word vs the other or the difference in the two similar words.
Or how a change in labels will benefit humanity in that it would teach to not see differences.
The labels should go -not be changed.
" Disability is a generic term whereas impairment is specific"?...
still to me doesn’t seem like a big difference in meaning
Please tell me the word choices that you think need to be changed and what would you like to see changed?. Tell me the "disability" language that you object to .
Simply for me -What words are not changing what?
