More Than A Number blog

Okay..most people who know me know I’m obsessed with hamsters. I love my hamster Hammie SO much but she really would like to get some sleep during the day and my stepmom would like to not listen to hours of babbling about hamsters.

Well, there’s a TOY HAMSTER! And guess what?! There’s a giveaway for one too! Go to:

I’m impressed with Newsweek, they had an article on genetic testing for Autism and an Autistic activist who opposes organizations like Autism Speaks. Autism Speaks and Newsweek have strong ties, so it’s surprising to see an article with the opinions of somebody who opposes Autism Speaks.

Genetic testing makes me nervous too. Moms-to-be could get the test and decide that Autism is some dreadful thing that dooms the kid and decide to abort. *sigh* Hopefully awareness will improve before the test becomes common place. Then it could be a positive thing, providing early help for Autistics from birth; allowing them to learn skills early yet still be themselves.
