they can't find many 16yo kids who don't strike from school for the opportunity for a day off. 

seeing she has the attributes of autism, it's quite likely at the end of the day's striking from school, she goes home and does the day's curriculum anyway ... that's sort of a handy bi-product wouldn't you say.

Hmm,

 

It's moved a considerable way on from there though. I can't speak for other cities but the Friday marches here in Adelaide have been huge with many adults, whatever that means, taking part as well.

 

I have no idea who is behind her now but in the beginning it was totally a grass roots movement. It moved on social media at the speed of a grass-fire though and doubtless more powerful forces are taking advantage of that.

 

Cheers

seriously, i am more than a bit over the growth industry that is medicalisation of what in ages past would be variations on the norm

 

autism is every male, just like asthma is every person that breathes - it's the arbitrary lines drawn to give people a "condition" that go haywire, because ultimately that's down to clinical opinion rather than hard science, and everyone is a player, either to sell their remedy, or outsource responsibility for personal weirdness

 

 

hey !  it's a bit like the climate "emergency" isn't it ?

 

 

no one in their right mind could neglect to notice that the last few years our planet has been ramping up the extremes of weather - onoz!  let's call it an emergency !  because ... you know, that adds gravity to the issue where coherent discussion might simply come up with reasonable understanding of where this is all going

 

is global warming a thing ?  in my opinion, probably, but i'll be dead before it's obvious enough to kill me

 

is in anthropogenic ?  possibly... but like a bad asthmatic choosing to smoke, it's rather stupid to persist with bad habits that will demonstrably exacerbate an existing condition

 

 

like people with advanced cancer choosing "alternative treatments", the persistence of expansionism in a closed system is untreated malignancy doing what it does

 

 

but social outrage is the equivalent of gerson therapy - lots of hype and pseudo-science which makes self-righteous people dead

those putting her on the net to be seen were banking on the momentum having just the effect it has

 

Then those people would be fuckheads.  Stuff goes viral when it shouldn't, and doesn't when it should ALL THE TIME.  You'd get a better return on your time by working overtime and spending the extra paycheck on advertising.
