I have been known to make jokes in bad taste that insult people. Like a coworker who was divorced from a Japanese woman told us the Japanese translation of some nasty word and I made a joke that the word had something to do with his divorce. Oops, I can read an icy expression however :oops:. One of ...

Trump should be more tolerant of disability. If his aphasia keeps progressing, he may make history as the first non-speaking president. Why should his supporters be concerned about that, they're not concerned about anything he says or does.

The criteria for deciding who competes on a women's team is not a simple question. In any case, there is no reason the Blakeman and the county to be getting involved other than politics.

I remember one bad incident when I was a teen. An interaction with a salesman in an consumer electronics store got me upset (I can't remember the specifics but I think he thought I was a shoplifter) and when I hurried out of the store he announced on a PA system for security to watch out for me like...

Please take a step back before you damn EVs with this story from the EV hating FOX. The problems these people encountered is only applicable to EVs which rely on public charging only, which is a small percentage of EVs.

That is a silly idea. Of course men wear sandals. There are certainly many styles that are marketed only to women and other styles that a marketed to both genders.

Joking aside...we already had a thread were one person defended Elon Musk (alleged aspie) against a whole mob of WP Musk-haters. I hope I wasn't the one person you are referring to. I reviewed "How Did Elon Musk Succeed" and found several posts that had a nuanced view of Elon. He is what ...

Glad to hear you are finally getting your assessment. I think you have been waiting since before I joined WP in 2019. Oddly, no one has ever asked me directly if I was autistic. But several have indicated they think I am in indirect way. I would guess they think I would take offense. My brother came...

I think I would have to pick traits from multiple characters to describe myself from fictional autistic characters.

Doc Martin: people skills
Harrison (As We See It): Social anxiety, but not the general anxiety.

My friend Mona Pereth referred me to this post. I am self-diagnosed, having read about Asperger's in 1978 and have never had any doubt about it since. I too would not like my name used in the article. Yes, I love the outdoors and have found outdoor activities to be very useful in living with ASD. I ...

They are defining neurodivergent very broadly. It seems to be including any neuro issue other than ID. What issues other than ASD and ADHD do we think this definition would include?

We still don't know the full story of Ellon Musk, i.e is he diagnosed or self diagnosed. From Chapter 2 of his latest biography: "He was never diagnosed as a child" says his mother, "but he says he has Asperger's syndrome and I'm sure he's right.". I was sure he was ASD after li...
