Ohh...so excited for the debates coming up... I wish they would cut some of the fat so there wasn’t two debates, but still, I’m hoping it will be lively. It’s hard to get a deep read at this point, but it seems like most of the platforms are: 1) Climate Change 2) Medical Insurance (what to do) 3) Ex...

Well, you know, though, this thought comes on the heels of what I just posted about how autistic people tend to enjoy consistency in their foods. I think it’s also more of a problem for autistic people to eat food that might be dirty or have germs. I think it’s very possible that autistic people rea...

Processed foods are more consistent than other foods. You can get your favorite chips and know that each bag will be the same as the last bag. You can even get super autistic with it and start reading the labels to see which plant it was made at to get even more consistency. How are you going to do ...

My family on my dad’s side owned slaves. I have the records in my basement. In fact, there is a wing of my family who has my neurological disease, with a genetic variation (there’s a long story there but I won’t get into that). The offshoot wing cannot be confirmed to be a part of the family by anyt...

Just caught up on your job search. I say, take any zoo or animal related job you can to get your foot in there. I have read that it’s good to ask what you can improve on if you don’t get through an interview. Now years ago I did actually have to hire people periodically, so I was thinking about that...

So there is Social Anxiety, a disorder, and social anxiety, a symptom. Probably most autistic people have experienced social anxiety of some level, even if it hasn’t gotten to the point of the disorder. I do not think social anxiety as a symptom is as prevalent in neurotypicals. I would say we exper...

I have ended up working closely with catholic people many times over in my life, such as sharing an office, etc. I even went to a catholic wedding once, where they did the Roman salute (phew, I wish someone had warned me). But they have been the most normal, decent, sensible people. Same thing goes ...

It’s nice to see this discussion. My favorite sociology professor made us read it in college. It was the second or third time I had read it at that point. He said that it was an important book to read and reread during ones life, because your opinion of it, and the world around you, changes with tim...

Oh man, you guys are going to get in line to get your RNA altered?

A few generations later we’ll all be living in Idiocracy. No more advances for mankind. We’ll forget how we did anything. Start pouring Gatorade on the plants.

But no more pesky different thinkers.

It’s sad to hear about brazen hurtfulness like this, but of course it still happens. No matter why you were flapping, how could it still be okay for them to react like that? I truly wish I could see inside their minds to understand their thought process. Not too long ago I read a story on another si...

Wait, wait, wait. We need more information. What exactly did you say or do to this teacher? It’s hard to give advice not knowing the scale of your offense, or offenses. Also, did the teacher objectively deserve your rudeness? Let’s be honest here, some of them are jerks. My kid is five and seriously...

So funny you posted this, and this was literally the first thing I saw on WP this morning! I woke up this morning at 5, in the dark, with my now-mild version of intrusive thoughts. That’s two hours before I had to get up. :/ I’m 42 now. I can remember being...oh...maybe 9 or 10 and having them. They...
