Dan Olmsted - a man with no sense of irony

Dan Olmsted has posted this at Age of Autism:

One of the guilty pleasures of covering the autism story lo these many years is to witness the spectacle of arrogant, ignorant "experts" weighing in on the issue -- supposedly on the side of science, or, as they often think of it, Science -- and making absolute blithering fools of themselves.

Rather splendidly, he's inadvertently posted this on a page that includes a couple of lists of arrogant, ignorant "experts" who frequently make absolute blithering fools of themselves.

They're at the top, in the menu bar. One list is Dan Olmsted, Mark Blaxill, Kim Stagliano. The other can be seen by simply moving your mouse over the "contributors" link in the menu. Bingo.

JB Handley plumbs new depths of vile.

Age of Autism's JB Handley has just managed to write one of the most offensive things I think I've ever seen.

On his online chip-wrapper, Age of Autism, an anti-vaccine rag that pretends it's about supporting those with, and living with autistic spectrum disorders, he writes:

None of us give a flying F%$# about the prevalence of autism in South Korea

You jingoistic, unfeeling, hate-filled - and I'd say at the very least bordering on racist - CUNT, Handley.
