Be that as it may, I think it's beyond the scope of this website to deal with non-dyspraxics' issues or traumas. Especially when they talk about dyspraxics rather than to dyspraxics. We should be looking after our own first!
It's also important to remember that dyspraxics who are significantly further on the continuum already have low self-esteem and do not need to hear views like some of those posted.
I'm also a believer in the expression silence is consent. And this is one place where we should not be silent about people who make negative generalizations about dyspraxics. A remark by a white person that came across as racist would not be tolerated on a website for African Americans no matter what that white person's intent was. And I don't think we should be any different.
I don't think we are ever going to agree on this matter but it is good that we are airing our views.
Finally, I should say that Tom has improved massively by adding his moderator's comments on those offending posts.
