The Woman Who Thinks Like a Cow

I Meant to post this last night, but I was tired and forgetful.

A little background is in order. Dr. Temple Grandin is the inventor of a device called a hugbox. It basically is a device that squeezes autistic people, and gives them a sense of being held. This apparently calms the little spazzes down. Asspie is the internet colloquial term for a person with the autistic spectrum disorder Asperger's Syndrome. Being a particularly pathetic way of effectively treating a disease, it has given rise to the phrase "Go back to your hugbox asspie". This has made Temple Grandin an internet celebrity of sorts. Luckily she is autistic herself, and cannot understand how awful that really is.
