Look, some junk science, of the Infuriatingly Evil variety (it hurts children)

These people ignore the simple fact that correlation does not imply causation. Then use correlations as an excuse to make up causes.

As to aspergers, here's a syllogism:

premise: Nick is perfectly normal.
premise: Nick *does* have the symptoms of asperger's
conclusion: the symptoms don't mean a fucking thing, they're just a list of common traits for "dorky" kids.

the real explanation of social ineptitude? parents who don't teach social skills. that simple.

> the real explanation of social ineptitude? parents who don't teach social skills. that simple.

some parents try to teach social skills and their kids don't listen.

so the parents failed to help their kid learn what they wanted him to learn (social skills).

it should say parents who teach social skills badly, fail at teaching them well. something more like that.
