Ch4's 'Are You Autistic' prog., AaA Youth Council and Prof.Baron-Cohen

Hi, I'm a new member.  I had just written a paper called 'Sex, Gender, Class and STEM-subjects vs. Humanities in Constructions of Autism', when I saw the programme 'Are You Autistic?' on Channel 4.  My paper was concerned with the 'New Classic Autism' stereotype that James McGrath had referred to in his book: 'Naming Adult Autism' (2017) and very much involved Prof. Baron-Cohen and the University of Cambridge Autism Research Centre, so I was very intereseted in his appearance on the Ch4 prog!  Well done to the members of the AaA Youth Council involved in the show; my fave bit was when Georgia Harper almost winked to camera and said "...there's even one theory that says we have male brains!"
