Should we be encouraging people with mental disabilities like ADHD or Asperger’s disorder to date/mate?
Both ADHD and Asperger’s syndrome appear to be increasing in the population.
Both are believed to be genetic (and thus heritable.)
Just a few days ago, I heard of a dating site for Asperger’s patients. Is this really
a good idea? We may be thousands of years away from being able to cure these
disorders; in the meantime isn’t it a good idea to teach these people that they should
be celibate, and that they are degrading the gene pool if they don’t stay celibate?
It makes sense after all, and would follow naturally healthy human inclinations
(i.e., what normal woman would want to risk bringing a defective, socially useless,
born-to-fail child into the world??? Or would want to breed with a defective man
in any case?)

Being different does not automatically make people inferior and people with Asperger’s and ADHD are not “born to fail”. A whole bunch of famous, successful people have (or are believed to have had) Asperger’s syndrome or ADHD. Do the names Albert Einstein, Isaac Newton and Bill Gates ring a bell?
The world needs people who can think outside the box, see things from different perspectives and get different ideas. If you want to stop everyone who isn’t “mainstream” or “typical” enough from breeding, you’d soon see a weaker gene pool.
Everyone has strengths and weaknesses. That includes people with Asperger’s syndrome and ADHD. If you choose to look only at the disadvantages and ignore the advantages, you are both missing out on a lot and not getting a clear picture of how those disorders affect people.
I’m very intelligent and I see things from a different perspective than most people. I can work three times faster than my colleagues who have similar jobs as I. I can easily solve problems other people are stumped with. I’ve achieved a lot of things that few people my age have. I’m one of the few people in my society who isn’t screwed right now as a result of stupid, insensible, unrealistic and greed-driven decisions. I have Asperger’s syndrome and despite my poor social skills, I happen to be doing a lot better in life than anyone in my neurotypical family or most of my former, neurotypical classmates.
If you don’t want anyone to sh*t in the genepool, encourage ignorant, intolerant, narrow-minded people to stay celibate. We are millenia away from curing stupidity. Anyone who thinks that being neurotypical automatically makes them superior to those who are different is suffering from a severe case of stupidity and should refrain from breeding. We wouldn’t want them to pollute the gene-pool.
And to answer your question, there is nothing wrong with encouraging people with Asperger’s syndrome and ADHD to date and mate like other people.
I think they are right… Big Brother, Bilderberg Group, Illuminati?
For 11 years now (im 21), i’ve been studying/reading stuff about the way the world works. my first interest was drugs. as a child, i was deemed ADHD, and put on riddelin and such. in my teen years i started doing a very powerful drug called acid or LSD. i do not regret it. it seemed to have cured my ADHD, or made me realize what the hell was going on around me. i am not a “druggy”. i stick to marijuana, alcohol, and the occasional psycadelics. at the age of 12 i gained access to some documents that i can not discuss the contents of over the internet. when i was 13 i started beliving in christ and god. shortly after, i had taken another look at some of the documents i had, and realized that the world is far more complicated than i could ever imagine. so i thought. for the past 3 or 4 years i have been looking into the way the world spins, the way that government works. how wars start, the profit made on both sides of wars. it still seems almost too much for one to concieve. ther is most definatley a NEW WORLD ORDER in progress. im sure youve heard it somewhere. its on the back of the US dollar bill in latin. this question has already gone on to long. all i am trying to say is that i am very adept yet weary of the things that happen around me. you may think i am a bit loony after this: i believe that god exists/existed. i think he is an alien or maybe even a species of alien (a leader and his angels) that had greatlty influenced our primitive race in a great way. i also belive that they mated with our ancesters over 5,000-10,000 years ago, (i belive in atlantis as well, yeah, crazy). but, this new world order thing that is happening, for the greater population of Gaia, it is bad. ther are over 7,000,000,000 (7 billion) people on earth. the elite of the world says to maintain the population under 500,000,000 (5 hundred million). my reason behind this whole story is to fill you in with what i know and believe, and to cast aside any bullshit that may and still probably be replied to this question: IS IT BETTER FOR THE EARTH’S POPULATION TO STAY UNDER 500,000,000, or should we fight the new world order, and start making as many babies as possible?
Mind, we are already kinda overpopulating the world, thank you, China, with your 3.5 billion.

All that is so we don’t blame our selves. Society in general is the Illuminati.
