Then tell me why China cannot feed its own people and has to import food. (Suffices to mention soy in the current trade war.) That's right: people need land to grow food. Tell me why US subsidizes growth of corn ever after oil embargo in the 1970s. That's right, before the shale revolution, corn wa...

You trust her enough to allow your daughter to attend activities for autistic adults that she coordinates & that her son also attends but you are questioning if your daughter will be safe at her home for the sons’s birthday party? I understand your concern for your daughter but I think you may h...

Hmm, have you taken a look at satellite maps of Tokyo or Los Angeles? Or take this: population density of Manhattan: 66,940 people per square mile (each person would be entitled to a space of about 6x6 square meters.) I was born in Tokyo & will be in Manhattan in about 3 weeks. I’ve been to L.A...

Anyone who thinks they (autistic children) have been poisoned for profit does not know enough about the issue. Vaccines are a biologic; not technically a pharmaceutical. Pharma is only the kitchen. They have been poisoned for the greater good. They are an acceptable loss. Somebody should be skeptica...

Purely anecdotal but; while I commonly encounter married couples with a HF/Asperger’s child ... I have only ever encountered divorced moms of severely autistic children. All of them divorced after the child’s diagnosis. I am somebody else’s router & adapter & I am only one person; I have not...

I am HF, my youngest son is “classic”, (severe, regressive) & we share the trait of absolute pitch. I believe that he also shares my Hyperlexia but he doesn’t communicate well enough for that to be obvious. My Hyperlexia is atypical because it did not plateau after adolescence as is expected. It...

I keep looking for the fine print in the linked article that states: “ Originally published by The Onion”. “Instilling” masculinity in a boy? My boys came pre-masculinized & I’m glad for it because as a female; I wouldn’t know where to begin. So tired of this “gender as a novelty toy” crap. Look...

there would be smaller towns because we like our peace and quiet, Technology would also advance a lot more quickly than it currently is because a lot of us take on the STEM field ... ... little to no corrupt politicians, We will get the leaders we desperately want and need, people would be nicer to...

I am what you would call “AV”. That is, however; a label that: 1. I did not choose & that I would not have chosen, as I do not identify with it. 2. Is not representative of the majority of the population labeled as such. 3. Is utilized as a Thought-Terminating Cliche, a Glittering Generality &am...

The sound of a faucet turned on wide open & the water pounding out induces terror. Can not tolerate the sound/feel of a pencil on paper; I have to use a ballpoint pen. Layered clothing ... No. I have absolute pitch, so if just one person in a band or choir is even a teeny bit flat or sharp; I ca...

Stimming time is thinking time (for me). It may appear random & non-purposeful to others but it’s actively rhythmic & it mitigates the background stimuli.

My thoughts can then synchronize with the rhythm without being scattered by distraction into the roaring vortex.

The world is overpopulated No it’s not. That’s Kissinger era propaganda motivated by greed for the natural resources of third-world countries with high fertility rates. None of the dire population predictions were accurate then & the predictions of today won’t be either. The one positive that c...

Oh, that was my initial label when "identified" during the 2d grade. My Hyperlexia interfered with my education quite a bit. Which is somewhat ironic. I then tested at the reading level of an H.S. graduate with a high IQ so I was removed from the SPED classes. My educators had never seen A...

“Autistics are highly susceptible to propaganda”. Is that just a theory too? I’m thinking; “No. That is a fact.” Because otherwise, why would anyone believe that: -Viral antigens (or engineered antigen replicas), combined with a chemical adjuvant for the purpose of stimulating an immune response .....
