Simon Baron-Cohen is at it again

Giving me something to write about but I am too tired to do it now. And too tired to find the original study but I doubt it is less wrong than this blurb:

Female-to-male transsexuals could be more autistic:


"If such girls do believe they have a boy’s mind in a girl’s body, their higher than average number of autistic traits may also mean they hold their beliefs very strongly, and pursue them to the logical conclusion: opting for sex reassignment surgery in adulthood.”


It's just symptomatic of the assumptions that appear to drive the study in what little is said about it on that page.

That was actually physically painful to read. Aside from the false assumptions, I'd have to read the actual study to draw a proper conclusion. That article certainly didn't paint it in a very pretty light did it?
