If you're going to make the argument that we should ban sports because they harm players then we should ban sports like Gridiron, rugby and horse riding.

Hell, you could argue that other professional sports such as swimming, bike riding, and track are dangerous because they encourage the use of sport's enhancing drugs.

And you're a fucking armchair revolutionary, happy to rant and rave from the privacy of their basement. If you're so fucking hard, put your money where your mouth is and put your views on the public record.

Besides which, what purpose does it serve to publish personal information of a judge? The only reason you'd do it is to encourage others to harass her. If you don't like the laws then you should be lobbying the politicians that create them, or taking protesting actions to highlight them, not fucking ordering unwanted pizzas.

So come on People's poet. Tell me how I'm wrong.

More over judges, and other law enforcement officials have the power, and resources to hunt you down, and make your life miserable if you pull this kind of shit.

I don't think deleting the board's history is gonna help, as their are multiple archives of the board right now. I think Hotwheels' life is about too become an objective lesson in why you don't fuck with the law.

I'd say remember that your child does have a cognitive deficit. Autistics aren't as good at catching on to generalistic concepts as non-autistics. So things like social interactions are a better of a minefield.

But that doesn't mean they can't lead a healthy, happy life.

Personally, I'd say keep a journal, and note down stuff that you think you're child is having problems with, (speech problems, social interactions, physical problems, etc.) and then discuss it with their therapists. Give them a bit of time to address those issues. Rome wasn't built in a day. But if you find that they're ignoring you, or not really tackling the issues you're bringing up, find another therapist. Also network with other parents of autistic kids, and see who, and what they recommend.

Without life, Biology itself would be impossible.
