There has been increased chatter around the way Barron Trump acts in public, and many are now speculating that he is on the autism spectrum.
I'm interested in your opinions about what this means for the Trumps, Barron, and autistic people everywhere.
If the speculation is not baseless and the boy does indeed have some type of autism, will the Trumps try to hide it?
Will they come out and share it with the world and embrace both him and his condition as nothing to be ashamed of?
I truly hope that this situation ends positively, but I'm afraid that the public, the press, or the Trumps will not be able to handle it well.
For one thing, Melania's legal threats have probably only increased the public's interest.
Also, what do you think about how the public and press have been reacting so far? Some have been defensive, some derisive.
Do you think over-defensivenes helps perpetuate the stigma that autism is something bad?
Let me know what you folks think!
