This essay was written as the keynote presentation for a graduate student conference on “Indecent Musicology,” held at New York University on March 26, 2016.1I would like to thank Marcus Pyle and the conference’s other organizers for the invitation to speak and for the call for papers, which not only produced several excellent student responses but encouraged me to think about my own work and our current intellectual climate in ways that I found highly productive. As I revised this paper in the wake of the 2016 US election, the question of the indecent seemed more pertinent than ever: the success of certain egregiously indecent forms of political discourse demands attention, as does the widespread failure of liberal and left wing outrage as a means to police acceptable behavior. If unabashed indecency has been a key tool to dismantle oppression (as epitomized by gay pride), Trump has flipped the script.

Debate continues about whether this represents a true increase in the prevalence of autism.
