I enjoyed the book: reading about how Lou's mind worked, his friendships, his fencing adventures, the unique environment at his workplace. I think Lou didn't realize what he was getting himself into when he signed up for the treatment. As a reader, I was shocked, so maybe he would've been as well. ...

SPOILERS Has anyone else read this book? The main character has AS and overall I really liked the book but the ending (where he decides to take the treatment to get rid of his AS) really confused me. What did others make of this ending? Why did Lou take the treatment and what message is this suppose...

This is quite a complicated question, as I know from the fact that I tried to logically work out the pros and cons of different options a minute ago and got nowhere :| But please bear with me if you have had experiences coming out to your teachers or if you are quite good at analysing situations. So...

What class is this for? What do ypu mean by research? What do you have to research? Actual people or is the research part reading books at the library? It's not for a class exactly, it's basically an essay which counts as half a subject's credit which everyone at school has to do. Part of an extra-...

Maybe your research will change their minds. I went through a similar dilemma about a nonfiction essay I was writing about the brony fandom. I thought the professor would laugh in my face. She actually found it fascinating and said that it changed her mind about adult animation fans. So, do your be...

For school I have to write a 6000 word research based essay in 6 months and then present it. 3 months ago I chose a topic relating to AS because it interested me, and I chose it impulsively. One of my parents is an in-denial Aspie and the other thinks I place too much weight on my condition, so I ha...

Granted I don't think any parent of an autistic child whether they be underage or adult are going to kick them out over something so minuscule. But you still have the issue of "having to live with them still". So if you can deal with your at home life becoming a bit more chaotic as a resu...

Thanks. Yeah, I do have some supportive friends/family members. We're trying out they/them for now and see how that goes. I'm fairly hairy and have acne. I've had hair loss from medication too. I will look into it myself. I'm going to spend a few months exploring what it's like to be transgender, t...

Hey, congratulations on all this, I hope I reach the stage you're at someday :D I hope things go okay with your mum; not sure how much you already know so this might not be news to you but I've read online that many parents who aren't initially supportive come around to their child being trans after...

Sometimes the best thing to do with unaccepting parents is to lie or don't ask/don't tell. If you were to get caught in your lie, just be honest and tell them this was something you needed to do for you but you couldn't bring yourself to tell them because you knew they wuldn't understand and would ...

Sorry, I don't really understand the question you're asking. Please could you try and phrase it in a different way? The story you linked to was very interesting so I'd like to try and answer it. Thanks :)

This is a touchy situation. It's like the advice often given to LGBT (alphabet kids) about their homo/transphobic parents.. if your parents are 'phobes and you don't feel comfortable coming out to them because it's not safe, don't! Just wait until you're able to get a job and leave home and be on y...

Sorry, this post has little to do with AS, but I could just use some advice. It also isn't directly related to LGBT stuff but I don't want any transphobic people replying which is why I put it in here haha :P So my friend has a relative who's 20 and FtM trans. I'm 16 and trans-questioning, and my fr...

I personally find one-on-one socialising pressurised and stressful, unless -the person is someone I'm very very close to (there are 3 people in this category) -the one-on-one conversation will only last a couple of minutes -I've already established either a really interesting topic with the person I...
