CHARACTERS ✓ Camouflage The Hidden Lives of Autistic Women And managing relationshipsFun sensitive and informative this is a fantastic resource for anyone who wishes to understand how gender affects autism and how to create safer accommodating environments for women on the spectrum. I thought this would be an interesting look at how autism affects women but unfortunately the book simply promotes and reinforces what appears to be a flawed premise while simultaneously ignoring the severe end of the autism spectrum making incorrect assumptions and disparaging people especially women who don t have autismThe biggest problem with this book is that it posits that females are underdiagnosed with autism because they don t meet the male based criteria Here s the thing There is no medical test for autism There s no blood test or scan that you can take that will tell you definitively if you have the condition So a diagnosis is based solely on observed or reported behaviour This book talks about how women don t tick as many of the symptom boxes as men Logically it would follow that fewer women would be diagnosed But this book argues that point to a ridiculous degree According to this if you don t meet the established criteria for autism then the criteria is wrongSome of the assertions are just plain silly There s a section where the women talk about running into trouble with abusive partners or narcissistic behaviour as if that s something that can only happen to women with autism Domestic violence wouldn t be such a huge problem if only autistic people were vulnerable to it Another part of the book has one of the women implying that men are better because they ll come right out and be rude while neurotypical women never really say what they mean Well I ll come right out and say it that is rude disrespectful and inaccurate There goes that generalization about neurotypical womenThe little bit of background on the discovery of autism didn t really impress me I ve read about it previously The casual mentions of Hans Asperger were a little bit disturbing though he was a eugenicist who collaborated with the Nazis and ended up sending mentally ill and disabled children to their deaths None of that is mentioned at allThe erasure of the lower end of the spectrum is perhaps the most disturbing part of the book but one I m not surprised by Much is made of narrow special interests but the women featured in the book are high functioning enough to have age appropriate obsessions Nowhere is there any mention of the girls and women who are still obsessed with Elmo or PAW Patrol after puberty Some extreme symptoms such as meltdowns are mentioned but only in passing There s absolutely nothing about co morbid conditions that go along with many autism diagnoses seizures bowel disorders immune dysfunction likely because that would show that there is a lower end of the spectrum The book states that the terms high functioning and low functioning are considered by some in the autism community to be unhelpful claiming that it has to do with I I don t think I ve seen it referred to in such a way the functioning levels seem to be to do with things like how verbal a person is and the ability to perform basic self care not an I scoreThe layout of the book is sort of like an illustrated picture book It s not a graphic novel There s no continuous narrative The pictures aren t really my thing they re too chunky and simple like something you d see in an infographicOverall I wasn t impressed I expected there to be from the autistic women themselves other than a few uotes I didn t really learn anything I didn t already know and I just
