shake Yes, their "shame" is 'ignoring' that 'aspect' with what 'regards' of their child may, or may not comprise "acceptance"/"rejection"?

Calling him autistic is at least none of her business and she should not have brought it up.

But "again"? What else has she been at?

(Since I picked the wrong thread)

So from the 'silenceisconsent.com' about us page (emphsasis mine):

Quote:
If you are fed up with the way this country is being run into the ground, ‘bookmark’ this website and ‘LIKE’ our Facebook page. You now have a place to voice your opinions and share relevant news. Our country is under attack from far left, radical Liberals, Progressives/Communists, Marxists and Socialists. Please share this page with “like minded” friends so we all can work together towards taking this country back and preserving the Constitution of the United States of America. The Constitution has been abused and ignored. It must be respected and restored according to how are founding fathers and framers intended it to be. Communism, Socialism and Marxism has no place here in The United States of America. This page is made up of administration from varying backgrounds such as Law Enforcement, Military, A Conservative Radio Show Host, Business Men & Women, Blue Collar etc. We all have one thing in common and that is the love of our country.

*Note: All Liberal/Democrat MOLES, SHILLS & TROLLS will be deleted & banned immediately.


Sounds super legit and open minded!

Rosie O'Donnell is a fairly awful human being in many ways and I haven't heard anything she's said except peripherally since...I don't know maybe that Tom Selleck thing? In this case though, it doesn't look like this was any sort of attack. Apparently she has a kid who was diagnosed with autism less than two months ago. That means she's in the "get immersed in learning everything then see it everywhere" phase. She's certainly not going to be attacking someone for something that affects her. It's totally inappropriate to start publicly speculating on other peoples' kids though, especially with videos(?!).

Eh, it's a widely available story. Of course, in those cases I do think it says something which source people choose to use.

While it is MOST 'unfortunate' that the best means of bringing 'attentions' unto something is through infected "cause celebre" with such. Why would any desist?

That thread has the same link and content as this one. Reporting the same incident twice doesn't count for someone doing something "again".

Rosie O'Donnell's Tweet was a magnanimous effort on her part to turn a would-be lemon hurled at Barron Trump into lemonade for parents all around who have Autistic children. It would certainly be a more credibly noble effort for First Lady-elect Melania Trump to undertake than for her hilariously hypocritical anti-online-bullying campaign (especially since she can't even control her own husband's cyber-bullying.)

In either case, Rosie's comments essentially acted like a bucket of cold water to put out a fire and redirect the focus in a more genuinely edifying and productive direction.

Yeah--if she's just speculating, that blows. But if they've been public that he does have autism, then using a high-profile case to advocate for not stigmatizing or bullying seems pretty normal.

So is being overly PC good or bad? Like, I'm seriously starting to lose the thread here.

The tweet, in and of itself, is pretty innocuous and takes a fairly aggressive reading to get it to being offensive.

EDIT: I'll add that, after chatting with my wife, apparently her belief is that contextually this could actually be super offensive and is generally in poor taste regardless.

Since the speculation had *already* been made, Rosie O'Donnell was trying to steer the conversation in a more productive and edifying direction.

Where is their "medical expertise" upon the matter because they certainly could afford that, yet the majority of those also in a similar situation may not. shake

It's pretty obvious that her statement was more of a real hope that it would bring more visibility to Autism as she has an autistic child herself.

Was it a bad idea to speculate publicly? Yep. But, it was speculation, not insult.
