    He said high-functioning Autism was either the result of our parents no hugging us enough as kids, or a giant medical scam.

    Oh wow, I'd like to see the whole argument, mainly for research purposes.

    This may not be a NT person, necessarily. Someone who is autisitc & convinced of his neurotypciality will force the whole world into the boxes of his disorder. How do I know? That was me once.

    "....Autism was either the result of our parents no hugging us enough as kids, or a giant medical scam." Oh I see. Ignorant/uninformed.

    Sounds like Bruno Bettelheim and his "refrigerator mother" nonsense that was popular in the 70s. Bettelheim seemed to be extremely Freudian in his approach, believing that parental behavior caused mental issues in offspring.
