I read the first couple of Demoninator’s replies, but skimmed once you guys started arguing. His first reply was spot on. I was in a doctoral program doing autism research in adults before my health and being a mom took over my time and abilities. In order to study and do work in autism, you have to...

It sounds like your friend has a negative view of autism...OR maybe she misunderstood you and thought YOU did. Either way maybe trying to make you feel better. I like to compare an autism status to race or sexual orientation. A person could come out to a well meaning but ignorant friend and be told ...

Yes. Many times. I am NT. After many years with my (aspie) husband, I have a direct, literal way of speaking that seems to come off as rude with other NTs. I have noticed that our five year old also copies some of his dad’s ways and mannerisms, including the autistic ones. Sometimes I don’t notice t...

I feel like the problem isn’t so much that autistic people need to be recruited for more jobs, but that workplaces are not autism friendly. An autism friendly workplace would benefit NTs and other neuro types too. Do they NEED all those meetings? Do you HAVE to have all the face to face time and gro...

Honestly, that sounds like an awesome classroom. Many non autistic people would benefit from those techniques as well. I also wish there were more autistic people teaching special ed. And regular ed. I mean, good lord, autistic people are literal, honest, have a talent for finding mistakes, and are ...

When I was growing up, we received $365/month in cash because my dad died when I was a baby and my late brother and I got SSI. Then we got about the same amount in food stamps. I think it was less, but let’s be generous and say it was the same. Some months, we would get $50 a month during the Winter...

Holy [email protected] someone needs to get Joe to a doctor. He was falling apart before our eyes last night. And he kept letting out long rambling monologues about things that didn’t make sense. Bernie needs to hang it up and join the Trump administration. I guess that advisor post is open right now. He’s been ...

My kid is five and I have to watch a lot of kids shows. We’re American, so I had to look up this Topsy and Tim. A couple of thoughts: 1-Some parents are so sick of watching kids shows that they become grumpy about them. I myself get irritated by the “nicely nice” voice and way of talking that a lot ...

Views: 190 Yes, I know it’s a really long radio interview. You can skip to around 1 hour in to hear him answer a direct question from the dad of three kids, one of which is autistic. I’ve been really into this guy lately. He basically said, for like 50-60 years, that any mental he...

Rape check. I went to grad school at one of the worst mass shootings in US history. What people don’t know is that there were other shootings, stabbings, and a beheading there within a five year period of the mass shooting. During my second semester one of the guys in our cohort started touching a b...

I think some of the terms here are confusing to people. When you say “alt-right”, I, at least, am thinking of Internet guys who are into nationalism and memes and maybe not not much understanding/meaning any racist things they may be saying. But then your details suggest that you mean real, [email protected]...

I am the mother of a five year old who has been diagnosed with ADHD, and who is abnormally large, very smart, and very anxious. He takes up all of my time and energy. I have a masters degree in sociology with a concentration in working autistic adults. My husband has Aspergers. I am neurotypical (no...

I don’t live that far from Cherokee. They are a Fierce and Serious people. They have to be, because the government tried pretty hard to genocide them. And yes, there are a lot of people around here who follow the “one drop” rule of Cherokee heritage, even though Cherokees themselves do not recognize...

I loved the show when I was little. I wasn’t allowed to watch anything but PBS and my mom didn’t pay attention to what was on, so it was a lot of Sesame Street and graphic nature documentaries for Little SOA. 8O My five year enjoyed the old episodes from the 70s and 80s, but can’t pay attention to t...

I’m having a bad morning so please forgive the plain speak. Researchers that do these kinds of studies on babies and toddlers are almost always dumb and presumptuous. 1) Kids who live with an autistic person pick up autistic mannerisms. It’s natural. It’s like if you have people from two different c...
