It’s extremely frustrating. I understand social norms pretty well in the abstract and even see social mistakes other people make, but in a real life conversation (especially a group conversation) everything goes way too fast for me and I can’t think quickly enough to make the right decisions. I hav...

Also I do see a pattern here. I've noticed that more females here are in relationships than males here, and there seems to be more lonely males posting in the love and dating section The pattern I've noticed is that there are plenty of women here with difficulty finding romantic relationships, but ...

Is there a better-sounding synonym for "illegal" that I'm not aware of?

"Undocumented" is the usual term these days.

Praises always feel a bit like manipulation, like the person saying them is above you and thus authorized to evaluate you. I can't truly enjoy them because I don't know if people giving praises are genuine or not. Compliments on the other hand are fine. Something like "those earrings are reall...

About me. I'm 45 and a successful lawyer in Washington State. In Washington State, there is a group called The Square Pegs Adult Autistic Meetup Group that's based in Seattle and has satellite groups elsewhere in Washington State. I don't know if any of them are conveniently located or otherwise su...

Aspies isolated from reality have a lot of pie-in-sky ideas about the world. Dreaming is good, but they are certain to clash with the coarse realists. They falsely interpret conservative reality as "right leaning". Reality is not "conservative." In reality, a lot of things have ...

Positions that were even considered normal 15-20 years ago are now taboo and called "far-right". Especially since Trump was elected I saw a lot of members on here blaming Trump and seeing him as a monster and generally saying things like "Why are these right-wingers/Christians/conser...

There is clearly a long term plan. Really? Most mega-corporations these days are interested primarily in maximizing the next quarter's profits, not in any longterm plan. Have you ever worked for the government or for any company that employed more than about 20 people? I suspect not, or at least no...

Well actually having no social life and spending nothing more than is needed can enable many millennials to retire by 50 to 60 and investing the difference in index funds will give them a retirement where they can live in dignity. Problem: "Having no social life" would make it much harder...

The only part of this analysis that was new to me was the following: As Ziegler outlines in her new book, there was further a connection between the anti-abortion movement and efforts to ease campaign finance restrictions; wanting to influence more Republicans to oppose abortion, figures like James ...

Helping each other find jobs might be one way that an autistic mutual aid society could help its members -- and a very important way, given the difficulties many of us have both with job interviews and with building the kinds of friendship networks that many NT's rely on to help them find jobs. Ther...

I think teaching them how to manage their money with biblical stewardship Like Dave Ramsey would be better way to combat poverty by the church instead of just giving them money. For some people, perhaps, but I wouldn't generalize. Each person and situation is different. I believe every young poor p...

Oh okay thanks for clarifying. I was looking up the numbers and many religious institutions only give 1 percent or less of their budget to the poor so maybe only 1 dollar would go to the poor from a 100 dollar donation so I dont think giving to church really helps the poor in most cases much based ...

What exactly is a mutual aid group....is it a type of tax exempt non-profit charity?Or is it way less formal than that. It can be either formal or informal. The smaller the group, the more likely to be informal. A larger group might be formally organized as a tax-exempt nonprofit charitable organiz...
