While I may not respond to comments in the manner I used to (I try to be hands off these days unless clarification is asked), I do read each and every one of them. In fact, I encourage comments as a supplement to the topics that I write about; I want to see different perspectives just as much as I imagine my readers do. All of that said, one comment in particular really struck me as odd:
Many people wish there was a cure because they happen to love psychopaths and hate the reality that doing so is a waste of time because psychopaths can’t ever reciprocate love and will only manipulate.
I say I find this odd because it is my experience that neurotypicals bring out the pitchforks once they’ve identified a psychopath. This particular comment may have been in reference to romantic relationships, but I think the alleged point can be expanded to general interpersonal interactions. The neurotypical claim it would seem that psychopaths are certainly worthy of love and respect, so long as they keep their psychopathy in check. This is not dissimilar from what homosexuals face from the religious community or religions ask of one another: “abandon the traits that make you you, and we’ll abandon the witch hunt.” This is forced conformity at its finest.
