Also too, after I finish compiling the list I plan on dedicating a Blog Post to it and disseminating it widely in the Autism Community to highlight the importance of Safe Sites for People on the Spectrum and People who Love them.

I link many Wrong Planet discussion links in my blog, in particular, for purpose of getting more anonymous male voices on the spectrum out into the "parent community" as many are not aware of the valuable resource of perspective and information that is available on this website.

I associate more with the female voices myself as that is the dominant voice outside of these walls of Wrong Planet in the online Autism Community. In one most recent published anthology of essays there were hardly any males voices. Not an issue of discrimination, just an issue of successfully seeking out those voices and letting them be heard.

I am not going to exclude the female voices though, either, if I cannot find the male blogs and websites to share.

I posted this information in a discussion on the Wrong Planet website, linked at the bottom of this post, and I am now up to 30 Safe Sites for People on the Autism Spectrum and People who Love them.

If anyone has a blog or site they feel fits the "Criteria" for a Safe Site for People on the Autism Spectrum and People Who Love Them and would like it additionally included, in the list, please contact me at my Blog Page on Facebook, Blogspot dot com, or on the referenced page, below, at the Wrong Planet website. :)

I am sure there are hundreds of others that have not come to my notice.

Here is the updated list of Sites that are all freshly linked on my blog page, in the right column, at this link below:

There is also an interesting discussion going on at the Wrong Planet website, linked below, as to what makes a Safe or Valuable Site of Reference per Unique Perspective and/or Autism Information for Everyone On and Off the Autism Spectrum.

Per the "Heart Full" theme in my last Blog Post, "My Mind Does Not belong To Me", there is another "Heartful" face in the Manic Grin of the opening Guy in the video above.

The ironies in "Why Can't We Be Friends by War" per the 'battles' between the factions in the Autism Community and "Sometimes I don't speak so Bright" that was clipped in the preview per the "organization redacted" PR errors were not planned as Puns, but sure do come across that way, at least 'to me'. :)

More "Divine" comedic relief or 'Synchronistic' Intervention, I suppose. :)

Here is another one for you:

http://www.aspiestrategy.com/

It is another blog with some wonderfully insightful articles for adults on the spectrum and which I have found very helpful and illuminating. It also includes several excellent articles aimed at helping Aspie/NT couples, which I haven't seen much about elsewhere.

Aspie Strategy Blog for Adult Relationship Advice

is number 34!


I like the positive message headlining the site, quoted below, and after perusing the information it looks very helpful.

"Where we explore how adults on the spectrum can thrive in relationships, and those who love them can, too!"

Thanks so much for providing the resource. :)

Thank you very much for that information. I think another recent addition is male too.

Do you have a blog?

I don't know if you remember. but I was also user name "Katie1" on "Aspies for Freedom", and enjoyed your perspective there very much. That site is becoming much more accepting of different points of view too, in adding to the record here. I enjoyed the time I spent communicating there as it is truly a "close community" of individuals who have shared communication with each other there for years. It is an invaluable avenue of interaction and support for many of the people who visit that site.

And for the additional record, here is number 34 again, as I sadly was compelled to remove another one that I personally enjoy visiting but is no longer "reasonably" viewed as one "safe" for substantial numbers of people who Love People on the Spectrum.

To be clear: "Safe" per comfortable place to clarify and verify communication, and to express different points of view in a respectful manner.
