They did it to gays. They still do it to autistics. We call it false behavioural conversion therapy.

They did it to us gays. Now Vice President Pence wants to do it to us again. They still do it to us autistics. We call it false behavioral conversion.

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) forces autistics to inhale ammonia and to feel extremely painful electric skin shock, among its countless cruel and unusual "aversion therapy" techniques. It promises parents it can make their "deviants" normal. It cannot. We autistics love ourselves, what we learned from gay pride.

ABA denies the emerging body of anecdotal evidence that it causes its victims trauma. Therefore, ABA is a pseudoscience masquerading as a science. ABA points the finger at any therapy of the mind and calls that pseudoscience, what B. F. Skinner, their head man, labeled "mentalism." True science, however, does not constantly paint a rosy picture of itself, but ABA does.
