A woman may very well form a friendship with a man, but for this to endure, it must be assisted by a little physical antipathy.
I am disturbed by how states abuse laws on Internet access. I am concerned that surveillance programmes are becoming too aggressive. I understand that national security and criminal activity may justify some exceptional and narrowly-tailored use of surveillance. But that is all the more reason to safeguard human rights and fundamental freedoms.
Don't think that there's a different, better child 'hiding' behind the autism. This is your child. Love the child in front of you.
