I think ASAN’s buggest blunder in recent years was the decision to move from a local/regional chapter model to an affiliate or model, which I think happened during the Bascom era. Really negatively impacted local, small scale Autistic activism I feel.

It's a rare condition, and it's usually rare for two persons to click (except for the super attractive/charming people who have infinite options). So for two autistics to find each other attractive and matching in everything else is like winning a lottery. 1 in 40-something or whatever % Autistic i...

^ It could also be the case that autistic men don't bother to read what autistic women say about NT partners in reputable chat locations where they give their honest opinions.

Yes, tell them the precise truth unvarnished and answer every question they ask in great detail. That's usually enough to short circuit NT brains.

Let’s not gloss over the fact that a major reason many straight autistic men have difficulty dating because a lot of autistic women seem to prefer being with NTs.

What we need is Virtual Reality sex! We would wear the right outfit that has haptics, then go into VR and have sex with another person wearing a similar outfit.
