I agree, though there are times when I think it's important to remember that there are broader inequalities present among us. Emma Dabiri wrote a book called "What White People Can Do Next" that touches on some of the nuances of not letting the individual scale blind you to the macro scale...

*sigh* this will come from a US-centric perspective because that's where I'm from and where most of the critical theorists I've read are from. apologies in advance, this can definitely shift/change at least a bit on the global level. white privilege =/= "your life is easy." white privilege...

As someone chronically single, I keep wondering that, too. Gonna keep lurking around for tips myself. :lol: Can't exactly talk about these things in L&D since women are constantly attacked and belittled there... Yeah... there's a sentiment that young women have hit the jackpot and dating sh...

Underestimating oneself is all too common with people on the spectrum and not just about romantic prospects.

I was wondering if anyone had tips on how to get a boyfriend when you're a girl with ASD. I mean, I'm not horrible looking, but there are tons of girls out there who are way better looking and more socially aware than I am, so guys tend to overlook me.

Looks are somewhat important, but frankly they're not too important in the long run.

There are people out there who are sentient but cannot easily communicate. There are people out there who have caregivers who could easily abuse this loophole. This is disgusting... Euthanasia dressed up like it's not euthanasia. If someone does not explicitly and clearly communicate that they want ...

Elon Musk has Asperger's? The playboy and entrepeneur who's been married 3 times and was Amber Heard's paramour?

Are we sure this isn't just some "I'm special, my brain is special" narcissistic stuff of the sort Musk has been accused of before?

I have an intelligent job. I'm not a humble little cleaner or receptionist. But that's not an ideal little wife job. I used to really like men, but the more I've had to look after myself, the more distain I've revcieved for not being good enough, so the more I don't like those who don't see me as f...

On some level, I feel like a romantic relationship is about having a "home base", a partner to turn to to pick up your slack, and you pick up theirs. Someone for comfort and confidance. Love is something that you build, it's not just something that sparks out of nowhere.' Basic compatibili...

Well, anyone else sometimes get a "twin flame" vibe from a historical figure? Like, "Gee, I could have been this person in a past life." I got that after studying the life and works of Franz Kafka and Hunter S. Thompson. Kafka in particular resonates with me u_u. Hunter was cute ...

I sent her a message delicately explaining the situation. I felt a little icky. I can totally remember times when I've been in the reverse position. Hopefully this can give me some perspective on how the NTs felt.
