Neurodiversity activist busted for child porn!

In a newly breaking story Nick Dubin, a clinical psychologist allegedly diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome has been arrested for online child pornography of children having sex acts with adults!

As regular readers of autism's gadfly will remember, Dr. Dubin,
wrote a favorable article about the ND movement Dr. Dubin, praised GRASP president Michael John Carley, who has insulted severely autistic persons by saying he does not want to be associated with head bangers and diaper wearers.

What is frightening is that Dubin is a licensed psychologist who up until now, worked with and had access to children. ironically enough, he specialized in the issues of bullying and autism. He has admitted to authorities that he knew the material on his computer was illegal. Dubin has been charged and is out on bail. In the meantime, pending the outcome of his trial, he has been barred from using a computer or having contact with minor children.

Dubin, who claims to have an ASD, yet was not diagnosed until age 27 has written about neurodiversity:

In theory, there doesn’t seem to be a chink in the armor of neurodiversity’s philosophy. Who would argue with the notion that society should take responsibility for how it treats some of its most vulnerable but creative citizens? Or that people with autism have inherent gifts and should be respected by others?

Well perhaps one chink is that there is credible evidence that at least one of its adherents is a pedophile, very possibly not above actually having sexual encounters with small children. I realize that Dr. Dubin has not been charged with an actual sex act and as far as his charge on possession of online child porn, he is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. However, this story does indeed give food for thought and perhaps one could rethink the neurodiversity movement and the apparently ever increasing unsavoriness of its adherents.

Dubin is a pathetic person who must've had lousy parents. Probably should've been spanked more.

Midnight In Chicago has been blogging about this since October 16th and giving regular updates ever since.

Phil Gluyas is also supporting Dubin.

From that, we can conclude that Phil is a pedophiliac.

However, according to the House Health Policy Committee, Nick Dubin claimed on June 2, 2009 that he was diagnosed and treated for Autism as a child and the treatment was so successful he is now an author.

But according to the calendar of events published by the Baldwin Public Library in Birmingham (MI) where Nick Dubin grew up, he was self-diagnosed in 2005 and he “produced a short film detailing his journey of self-discovery.”

There seems to be discrepancies and contradictions with regards to when Dubin was diagnosed and whether the diagnosis was by a licensed and accredited medical practitioner with knowledge of Autism Spectrum Disorders or if it was by Nick Dubin, years before he attained his doctorate degree in 2010.

That is a quote from the Midnight in Chicago Blog. Could this be ANOTHER CASE that makes my argument not accept self diagnosis in organizations meant for autistic people. This guy was a board member of GRASP.

Now we have two "autism" groups with board members, one former, that have been accused of having sexual fantasies of children and adults. Meg Evans and this Dubin creep.

In the case of Dubin, it appears he doctor shopped after self diagnosing himself. Has anyone actually seen this guys videos on Youtube? I have. Never took him seriously.

Now I see that Gulyas, like many other fakers out there also carries the diagnosis of Schizoid Personality Disorder.

So that is now Amanda Baggs, Phil Gulyas and I have evidence that Clay Adams was also a member of the schizoid personality disorder Yahoo list serv.

What do all three of these individuals have in common. They are fervent supports of self diagnosis and bullies to those of us that have diagnosis and bully us off lists when we question whether their self diagnosis should entitle them to the same rights and privileges that should be available to the diagnosed only.

The evidence just keeps mounting and mounting.

By the way Jonathan, I beat you this year in Phil's award for worst person with an ASD.

Perhaps you can try harder next year

A surprising source has come out with the criminal child porn complaint against Nick Dubin as filed in court

jonathan said...

Kent: Gluyas has my IP blocked, so I can't read his web site or his awards unless I use the computer at the library.

Anonymous: Zach Lassiter is a liar who claimed that autism speaks intentionally pressured zazzle to kick his t-shirt businesss even after autism's gadfly challenged him to produce proof and he could not and admitted he had no evidence that AS had anything to do with this, then continued with this lie on his blog, so anything he has on Dubin I take with a grain if not pillar of salt.

So one neurodiversity activist appears to be a pedophile. That must mean all neurodiversity activists are pedophiles, right?

Two words, Mitchell: hasty generalization. It is a dangerous logical fallacy.

Now that I know about this guy, I will not support him. I am not too fond of Michael John Carly, either, but that's another story.

jonathan said...

No, I never said all neurodiversity activists were pedophiles. I do believe the vast majority of them are very nasty abusive people who are quite unsavory, who insult parents, mock and ridicule people who are more disabled than they are, and your idol, ABFH who states that autistics who want to be cured are interferring with "autism rights" activists want to stay on welfare and that those she disagrees with should be shot or strangled to death or turned into catfood or sadder but wiser girl saying that i am like a jew who helped the nazis during world war II or Kowalski and turner saying that parents who want to cure their children are like members of the KKK who are forced to raise black children and your other idol Ari Ne'eman suggesting that the persons at autism speaks might be morally complicit with murder.

You yourself are not above the fray, suggesting that I make no effort to self-improve when you never met me and dising the very disabled Christian Westin Chandler saying he is an embarrassment to persons with autism.

So, yeah, though I doubt most ND proponents are pedophiles like Dubin. However, they are still very nasty unsavory people, so the point of my post still stands and that is what I meant, no matter how much spin you are trying to put on it.

We do know that all Neurodiversity associates purposely present the illusion that they are mentally ill. They do this because they know no sane person could ever embrace their deranged philosophy.

It stands to reason that only a mentally ill person would join these bunch of apparent wackjobs so there is a great variety of different mental illnesses amongst the members. They might not all be pedophiles but they're all insane, except for the leaders...they're pure evil.

Oh dear, you really have no idea do you?

Just for a warm up, have a look at
Jim Sinclair, Joel Smith, Laura Tisoncik(Amanda's neighbor and prime collaborator), Kalen/Khalen (UK/Autscape's counterpart to Baggs/Ari), "Adrianne/Age296," a role-playing enthusiast who performs on various forums, AutismSpeaks, WrongPlanet, etc) Kassianne Sibley ("RhettDevil," an extremely hostile blogger and known disruptive repeat participant and preenter at Autcom/Autreats and such, who's creted her own Rhett Karotype and more),

actually just a good general cross section of all the Autreat/autcom, participants might be very worthy of exploration,

and of course don't forget the endless sea of them that can be found on self-display on YouTube, happy and eager to 'splain Autism" to you (and in some cases maybe sell you a book or painting to that end)

"WrongPlanet" and "AspiesForFreedom" are also plentiful -- there's more than enough right there alone to keep somebody quite busy a very long time,

perhaps a reality TV show is in order, there's enough material to keep one going strong, for years, something in the spirit of "Cheater's":

but geared to make certain discoveries in "the Autism Community" that might more closely resemble this:

Anon, I agree with you entirely. There is just so much out there. I would also add Donna Williams, who is now admitting to having a personality disorder.

I'm shock that Dr. Dubin is arrested for chrild porn! People are completly wrong that autistics or Aspies are not capable of deception, but I said are Autism NOR Asperger Sndrome DONES NOT make you a crimimal indulding a pedophile! Also most autistics are completly wrong by trusting autistics than the neurotypical people because they are wongly thinks that autistics are not capable of these things but I say YEA RIGHT bucause I'm autistic and I beilive that autistics are capable of doing everything like everyone else and there's NO EXCUSE for it. Like Donna Williams said, "Not all Auties are nice."

P.S this is NOT the NDs fault nor anybody elses's fault, he did this to himself.
