Treatment includes what are called psychotropic medications that delay the progression of the disorder, as well as relieve some of the symptoms of one who is autistic.

To answer your question one would first have to believe that the cause of autism is thimerasol. I don't.

To answer your question one would first have to believe that boys and girls are identical. I don't.

There are many obvious differences in boys and girls. My daughter has a keen eye and great attention to detail. But like his Dad, my son will likely never develop that, not because he's a boy but because he's like his father. My daughter drives me up the wall with the whining...my son rarely ever whined as a toddler/preschooler and still doesn't at 9 yrs old. He either cries for a reason or he's happy....my daughter will likely whine as a teenager - just like I did as a teen. Just like with my parents, it makes her Dad angry when she whines but I overlook it and chalk it up to "she's a girl".

I see the obvious differences and to think that a girl baby and a boy baby biologically develop identically would not make sense. Therefore, I don't think they develop exactly the same. Actually --- we know they don't --- the genitalia is formed before birth so even in the womb, the development is hardly identical, it happens near the same time, but not nearly identical.

Why do you need all humans to be identical? It would help to fit it all in a perfect little box wouldn't it? Unfortunately we all develop at different rates. It would be nice if boys matured at the same rate and pace as girls do - but it's not reality. That is why it is not that difficult for me to imagine the nervous system of a boy developing more slowly than that of a girl...

The entire crux of the problem. Humans are NOT identical. This doesn't take into consideration the hundreds of thousands of chemical reactions that occur within each person every single day based on variables that are very difficult to control for... doesn't stop people from taking the past out of context, and applying a broad brush as it relates to public health policies.

The Neurodiverse crowd will chastise your view, act like you are a danger to society, while telling you a story about how their grandparents had 20 kids because they knew they'd lose some to disease. Funny how the introduction of agriculture never even enters the equation... someone wanna guess how long sugar's been around, or grain for that matter? Pfft. A person that practices extended breastfeeding is supplying their child with protective antibodies regularly, how is this endangering anyone?

And worse is when they try and pretend that our environment is the same today as it was back then - but only when it suits their viewpoints.

Even more aggravating is when they praise medical advancement and technology and how far we've come...but at the same time acting as if there's even less chance of survival today. Today --- with a hospital and/or emergency clinic within miles. Today --- when we have automobiles and don't rely on horse and buggy for transportation.

The only changes that are not working in our favor are those due to lack of good health in each of us as individuals. Today's child is less healthy than yesterday's child and kids today are getting many more assaults than ever before...all in the name of "preventative medicine" a/k/a "money-making medicine".

This element needs has to be present, otherwise you wouldn't feel guilty for not vaccinating and "taking advantage" of modern convenience.

The premise that humans are so fragile and incapable of fighting infection without vaccination assistance is not supported by the scientific method. Comparing human children that are vaccinated a little bit against human children that are vaccinated a lot says absolutely nothing - except that all trial participants are vaccinated (or given a reactive placebo)... except when it's convenient to state that it's unethical to withhold vaccines (that way the vaccine defender is always right). If you mention a large scale epi study, they balk at that stating there is no way to randomize the sample - instant discredability.

When you mention that decline in disease occurred prior to the introduction of most vaccines, they'll tell you that VPD *mortality* is what decreased, not morbidity (disease incidence). Lest we all forget how accurate disease reporting is? Constant CDC alert bulletins, and propaganda of reintroduction of disease wouldn't be reinforcing a subliminal diagnosis, or be a variable would it? Course not, it's all in the name of public health which takes priority over the individual - correct facts (or statistics) are not necessary. And for sure all these vaccine defenders will be the first to issue you condolences when your child dies or suffers from vaccine injury, if you can get them to even admit it occurred - because you did your part for the health of the herd.

I'm exhausted just thinking about the spin.

Or, what's considered "eradication".

The killer plague has been eradicated? Wow, you mean those kids in Australia got vaccines for the plague too? I mean, cause how else could the plague be eradicated if not by vaccine???
