I just saw a sticker on a newspaper stand that said "celebrate neurodiversity".

<seinfeld>What does that mean?</seinfeld>

I assume they're promoting proper embryonic differentiation, but I can't be sure.

Could be a pro-Asperger's group -- in response to clinical psych lingo that labels "typically developing individuals" as "neurotypical." Some higher functioning "Aspies" - including all of the people who used to be simply known as dorks/nerds/what have you - and are now considered to be part of the autism spectrum, don't consider themselves to have disorders or want to be treated of their symptoms.

Or should I say ... "disorders" or want to be "treated" for their "symptoms." Quotation marks ad nauseum.

Thus -- NEURODIVERSITY - RAH RAH RAH!
