Neurotribes is written by a neurotypical man, who basically says:
“Do not kill, abuse, and try to “cure” autistic people, because some of them are good at computers and science”
OK, compare it to a (hypothetical) book written by a straight man:
“Do not kill, abuse, and try to “cure” gay people, because some of them are great in showbiz”
DO YOU SEE THE MULTIPLE PROBLEMS WITH THIS??!?!?!?!?!
WHY ARE SO MANY PEOPLE GRATEFUL FOR THIS BOOK????!
I don’t think I should have to spell this out, but autistic people are as worthy of life, safety, and respect as any damn person on this planet, full stop.
