Climate Crusader Greta Thunberg on Illness

Attacking a child for having autism is as outrageous as exploiting one for political purposes. It does not denigrate Greta Thunberg, the heavily hyped teenage climate crusader who is on the spectrum, to point out that autism is not a good thing. To pretend that an impairment is a blessing is sheer moonbattery.

From the moonbats at The Guardian:

Greta Thunberg has spoken about her Asperger’s syndrome diagnosis after she was criticised over the condition, saying it makes her a “different”, but that she considers it a “superpower”.

Thunberg, the public face of the school climate strike movement said on Twitter that before she started her climate action campaign she had “no energy, no friends and I didn’t speak to anyone. I just sat alone at home, with an eating disorder.”

She said she had not been open about her diagnosis of being on the autism spectrum in order to “hide” behind it, but because she knew “many ignorant people still see it as an ‘illness’, or something negative”.

Kudos to Greta for not letting her disability lower her opinion of herself. However, to truly come to grips with it, she will eventually have to admit that it is not ignorant to see an illness as an illness. The goal is to overcome it, not to embrace it. But then, try telling that to people who suffer from psychosexual illnesses.
