Good point. Well it kind of collapses it doesn't it. There are significantly more males with autism spectrum related conditions than females. I won't say vaccines don't cause autism. It's possible that males are given more vaccines than females.

And the social structure as a whole is more hostile to males than females. More pressure on males to succeed etc. A woman isn't expected to do anything by comparison, so her autistic symptoms are less likely to show up.
