Pretty OT, but it raised a memory.

The doctors used to tell my mother that her child was autistic because she was a cold parent.

“Blame the mother” has a long dark history in our culture on both the scientific and religious side.

To the end of their lives my maternal (fundamentalist) grandparents asserted that I should be last among the grandchildren in order to punish my mother for having me out of wedlock. They thought they were being gracious for accepting me at all. They were vaguely embarrassed when I became the first ever member of the family to graduate from college.
