Extreme Masculinity = Autism 

Tell that to the "str8-acting" queens on the block. But seriously...

New research suggests that autism may be related to an overexpression of certain male brain development patterns. This would, in part, help to explain why more boys have autism than girls - even if a girl is getting higher-than-usual testosterone exposure, she's still female, so it's unlikely to cause her brain to develop so far in the male direction that she gets autism.

More data on this puzzling condition is, of course, a good thing.
