As Autism Ages: What's Your Biggest Worry?

Strange Story from UK: Autistic Students Tricked into Thinking They are Wrong Gender

TransgenderNOTE: This story seems...  well, queer, in the Alice in Wonderland old fashioned meaning of the word.  How is it that moderate to severe children with autism make up a third of patients at a gender identity clinic?  My girls could be considered to have moderate to severe autism - and never be able to explain to me or a doctor that they feel they are the wrong gender. The puberty blocking drug mentioned - is it LUPRON the highly controversial drug that halts precocious puberty and was presented as an autism treatment for children with high mercury levels almost two decades ago? The story mentions a transgender agenda.  Does any such thing exist and why? Perhaps children born into a phalate and glyphosate filled world with hormone laden dairy and meat and poultry and an immune system catapulted by numerous vaccinations are truly being gender changed. Really not sure what to make of this story. Would value your thoughts.  Kim


School has SEVENTEEN children changing gender as teacher says vulnerable pupils are being 'tricked' into believing they are the wrong sex.|

An astonishing 17 pupils at a single British school are in the process of changing gender, The Mail on Sunday can reveal.

Most of the youngsters undergoing the transformation are autistic, according to a teacher there, who said vulnerable children with mental health problems were being ‘tricked’ into believing they are the wrong sex.

The whistleblower says few of the transgender children are suffering from gender dysphoria – the medical term for someone who feels they were born in the wrong body – but are just easily influenced, latching on to the mistaken belief they are the wrong sex as a way of coping with the problems caused by autism.

Earlier this year, The Mail on Sunday revealed that a third of youngsters referred to the NHS’s only gender identity clinic for children showed ‘moderate to severe autistic traits’.  Read more at Daily Mail.

I am mortified by these people we've put in positions of authority like teachers and counselors, they misinterpreted their authority as authoritarianism and it both shocks and saddens me deeply. We must fight these absolute terrorists, these left wing radical bastards are worse than the Nazi's EVER could have been under even more dire and terrible circumstances. We must stop them, they cannot be allowed to thrive as they are managing, it is despicable and wrong, but I am tired of it to such an abhorrent and terrifying level that I will fight it, I will combat it ruthlessly from here on out.


I never said autism is a mental illness I said mental illness and developmental disabilities togather in the same sentence. There is very frequent dual diagnosed between mental illness and developmental disabilities whether the psychologist diagnosis it or not in that individual. I said that I may be helpful to surgically or chemically castrate a few very dangerous and sexual violent and perverted person with any mental illness which includes things like bipolar and schizophrenia or a developmental disabilities like cerebral and autism. I have a relative that is a damn tranny and no way in hell would I ever allow a quack doctor or psychologist to diagnosis them as autistic when that relatives real issue is trauma from child abuse which is not really a mental illness in and in of it self though still sad. I am sick of liberal diagnostic criteria these days for Developmental Disabilities and Mental Illness and e ironically have a neoconservative to thank for this controversy. He is Ronald Reagan who under his watch an expansion of the deffinition for special education and a 1984 law (social security benefits reform act) to make a person claiming mental illness claim SSI and SSDI benefits among other things.

"Autism" is not a mental illness. Have you read none of the scientific articles on this website - and the links to cutting edge scientific papers - showing that "autism" is a physical illness with environmental causes? It gives those of us who suffer from it a propensity to be vulnerable to persuasion (among many other symptoms). One of the main points of this article is that that disability could have caused people to think they had "gender dysphoria" when in fact they don't. So, John was right when he wrote that you have misunderstood the point of the article.

@Will "On the other side borderline scam artists who's children have ADHD and OCD (Yes! They deserve special education!) want a more significant diagnosis for their child for higher amounts of government benefits and education services."

So you are saying Will.........parents of children with ADHD and OCD who fight for educational and other government funded support services for their children are 'borderline scam artists'?

It’s criminal act if one person ends up on the operating table who shouldn’t be there, and is not capable of understanding the issues. It becomes something else if it is being done to keep certain departments funded, increasing the sum total of human misery at public expense. We have many topics here - if you are indifferent to this one I don’t have a difficulty with that, but it it is a perfectly reasonable thing to comment upon.


John stone I want to ask you okay may there are a few hundred autistic with transgenderism but who cares! it might actual be good idea to give lupron to a few dangerous Developmentally Disabled and Mentally Ill (which includes autism) people to protect society an even make that person physically healthier. In my opinion "Autism" is not longer a legitimate disability at this point as it is over diagnosed on both ends of the spectrum high and low functioning. On low end the parent of the severely intellectual disabled find out that savantism and athleticism are much more common in autism than their child's traditional Intellectual Disability diagnoses so they want the cool "autism" label to make themselves feel better and have a false sense of hope for a better prognosis. On the other side borderline scam artists who's children have ADHD and OCD (Yes! They deserve special education!) want a more significant diagnosis for their child for higher amounts of government benefits and education services.

Certainly not me against gays members in my family are gay male and female.The divide and rule masterclass have been searching for the elusive autism gene and gay gene for the past 15 years or so.So far as my own son is concerned if hes turned on by Thomas the tank engine so be it.We refused masturbation classes for him in school as it showed people masturbating to pictures of men and women which he has no concept of.To that end we managed to get the classes stopped and parent consent required before such practice implemented and rolled out onto kids such as my son.Its of interest to me the increase numbers of gays per population.There is no doubt if you give a male more testosterone they become more agressive,and I`ve noticed that women who eat a lot of estrogen laden foods are more aggressive. Again all very interesting and great to discuss. Atrazine to frogs is a fact they weren`t born gay they were made gay the same can possibly happen to humans whether the reproductive organs would change as well I wouldnt think so.The one thing we can be re assured sure of 100% its nothing to do with vaccines because pharma .gov et-al say so.

I think you have missed the point - the worry might be about the exploitation of a vulnerable group and the Mail story suggests that it could be more than a few.


I want to ask Age of Autism and it's readers is why does this topic matter? A few autistic transgenders or whatever how does this help people with autism such a mundane story? Does being for or against transgenders with and without autism give people with autism jobs, affordable housing, or good quality health care? We know all those european based comments here on AoA and the petty conspiracy theories will talk about gay mexican frogs or something but in your country of Germany and Ireland how are you advocating for people with autism?

Transgenders are whatever your views is NOT related to autism! If there are a few dozen transgenders out of a few hundred thousand of those with autism in the US or UK then so what! Let those darn conspiracy theorist come out in celebration like the popular Black Pigeon Speaks who is a racist anti-Muslim Japan worshiper on YouTube and his friend Sargon of Akkad who a racist radical MGTOW also
popular on YouTube with their mocking genuinely disabled children by accusing all of them of being part of some weird social justice thing like transgender movement and not discussing nor empathize with their serious disability. These idiots were rambling in several of their Youtube videos about autism being related to transgenders and other nonsense ideas. I peacefully criticize transgenders not for any religious reason but for their movement and its gay rights relative distorting the disabled rights movement and the minority civil rights movement.

My daughters think that the astonishing number of trans people working checkout at the coop is just becasue coops attract that sort of people. My gay friend thinks the astonishing number of trans people is because they are no longer scared to come out of the closet.
I think the astonishing number of trans people is because they all have Mad Hatters Disease from the effing CDC vaccine schedule that hammered them so bad with mercury. It is merury by itself, or mercury in combination with the ubiquitous xenoestrogens or the xenoestrogens by them self. What we are seeing is an astonishing number of poisoned people.
The remedy for this is a few years of chelation for mercury using the Andy Cutler protocol. After that you can reassess whether the person still feels they are the wrong gender.

Sadly, I find the story believable. I've known some adults with autism who thought they were transgender. Some may have been; others most likely were not.

A few years ago, school counselors and the media were going on and on about sexual abuse. So my high-functioning son assumed that, since everyone was talking about it...everyone must be experiencing it! He racked his brain for something that had happened to him that matched what they were talking about (euphemisms aplenty, of course)...and he decided that yes, he HAD been abused! After careful inquiry, it turned out that another 13 yo had yelled at him "You queer!", "queer" had a sexual connotation, and therefore, in my son's mind, he had been "sexually abused". We had to explain that no, this was NOT what the counselors were talking about.

So when the media frequently discusses transgender rights, when school counselors talk about multiple sexes (not just two), when teachers are forbidden to question students who "announce" their status - it can get very, very confusing for kids on the autism spectrum. When a 14 yo boy with autism still likes "Blue's Clues", other 14 yo boys make make fun of him by calling him a girl (an insult in the 14 yo male brain)...and the boy with autism may wonder, "Does that mean I'm a girl Am I transgender?" If adults are not permitted to question, to make sure he truly understands the concepts...then yes, you could end up with a situation like described in the article.


I do think our kids are very gender-confused, hormone-confused. Not just the pthalates and mercury and glyphosate and hormones in our food supply, but also the chemicals we took and our parents took (DES, the pill, fertility drugs, hormone-blockers with cancer, etc). It's damn scary. Making it cool to have a sex change, and/or pressuring other kids, is definitely not what they need.

Whistleblower teacher says she believes schools and some politicians have swallowed ‘hook, line and sinker’ a politically-correct ‘fallacy’ peddled by a powerful transgender lobby.

Fearful of retaliation by those "schools, politicians and that powerful transgender lobby" she has asked The Mail on Sunday to conceal her identity for fear of dismissal after almost 20 years as a teacher, But in a shocking interview, the woman, who we shall call Carol, tells how:

She was advised to keep parents and other teachers in the dark if a pupil claimed to be transgender;

Downright positively frightening to send your precious child to a public school where "parents and other teachers are deliberately kept in the dark" because speaking truthfully to PARENTS will result in retaliation threatening to someone's career and employment.

In any event .. it has been reported there now somewhere around 52 recognized and politically correct approved "genders". How in God's name are parents supposed to raise their children in a world where children in SCHOOL are being taught "gender" is no longer a biological fact .. instead .. it is fluid .. simply a "state of mind" .. where .. if you are a boy/girl you are told you can become a boy/girl by saying so?

How did we allow this type of PYSCHOLOGICAL TYRANNY to overturn 2000 years of biological and cultural beliefs? Why now and to what end? Unless the ultimate goal of desensitizing generations to accept "gender" as "fluid" .. is POPULATION CONTROL?
