Of course.

There's social development and there's socialising. I was reacting to 
the concept of 'forced socialising', which is a horror to me. Every 
human needs a degree of social development - recognising other human's 
faces, learning to respond to them in a way that doesn't get you beaten 
up, generally developing Theory of Mind, that kind of thing. Beyond 
that, though, nobody should be forced to socialise. Some won't mind, 
some will hate it, some will be traumatised by it.
