Jenny McCarthy, Indigo Children and Other Gobbledygook

Over at the Rescue Post, that bastion of critical thinking and deep understanding of everything autism, they are falling over themselves because Jenny McCarthy (1994 Playboy Playmate of the Year) will be appearing in the Oprah Show. You see, McCarthy is TACA’s spokeperson, an autism mom, and has written a book titled Louder Than Words: A Mother’s Journey in Healing Autism.

This was known as early as May, when Kev wrote a post about it.

Here’s someone who could use her celebrity power to really help the autistic community, but instead will apparently use it to peddle various sorts of unproven biomed quackery and, perhaps worse, ridiculous notions of what autistics are. I have no illusion that Oprah will prevent her from peddling even something as irresponsible as anti-vaccination junk.
