Hahaha it's funny and sad at the same time because it's true.

Wow, that is really true! It does seem that the only parts of the autistic population who become the subjects of research, diagnoses and media attention are little boys. Adult men and females with AS are often left behind, and it's truly sad.

Talk about an Aspie moment. :?

Even with the subject line of this thread, the cartoon largely lost me until I read the above couple of posts.

I get it now. Too bad it was ruined for me by my own confusion. :scratch: :shrug:

Wow, what a rather... sad but true comic. I feel like that all the time at school...

could be good except even the larger size font was too tiny for me to read even with my craft magnifiers. :(((

Yep, that's pretty well how Autism $peaks sees (or doesn't see) adult and female aspies.
Just one question: What is a Higgs Boson, and why would they be invisible?
