If you live in USA I know that many companies scheadule, once or twice a year, a kind of interview where they ask employees what they think about their work, how much they achieved and contributed to a company growth, etc. If they prove they did well they get promotion or their salary raised or bot...

It could be a way to eliminate a dud and minimize wasted time. I wouldn’t want to be with someone who would ditch me or discriminate against me for having autism, so I’d always be upfront about it. Sure, not everyone is knowledgeable about autism, but if they aren’t willing to learn, then I’m not w...

Since I have an autoimmune disease I am ready to inform people, generally, only about it and use it as an excuse for the things I hate doing as an (officialy still undiagnosed) autistic person. Things that are exausting for me. Should I openly admit to a potential partener about my autism? Probably...

Where I'm originally from even the so-called experts tend to think of autism as a less sever form of mental retardation. Tellimg a date that your autistic when you don't really know each other would likely guarantee you don't get a second one unless they are a preditor who thinks your easy prey. I ...

I don't think that a person has to tell a romantic interest about their autism diagnosis, but I'd want to tell them so they'd have a better understanding of my quirks. It could help with emotional intimacy down the road too. If they aren't cool about it, they probably aren't worth one's time. Well,...

You're right. Sex isn't the pass/no pass test.

However, it's a bad idea for sexuals and asexuals to be in a relationship. Even if sex isn't the *only* point of a hetero/bi/homosexual relationship, a sexual individual will never be happy in a relationship with an asexual.

I've only had 2 dates in the past 8 years, neither of which led to sex or a 2nd date. After sharing the detailed stories of these 2 dates on another forum, here's the general consensus the other posters came to: I ended up unknowingly saying the "wrong" thing (thanks to being on the spectr...

Both on this forum and on other forums, I've noticed quite a few asexuals on the spectrum.

I wouldn't be shocked if it turned out asexuality is more common among people on the spectrum than neurotypicals.

Does anyone else recall any instances from high school where, in retrospect, you were (in all likelihood) getting mocked/bullied, even though you didn't realize it at the time? I have a story. Shockingly, the cool kids let me sit at their table during lunch. One day, the cool kids gathered up all th...

We're largely hated because we exhibit traits that only exist because we're on the spectrum.

Humans just naturally hate anyone who is different, they see such people as something that is "defective" or "weak" or "inferior". In the wild, weaker animals are often abused, bullied and killed by the stronger animals in their family in order to ensure their own surv...

It's one thing to discuss whether people on the spectrum are aware they've done anything wrong when they exhibit behavior that could be viewed as creepy.

As for discussions of whether police are good or bad, that's one topic the mod specifically said they don't want us discussing.

I don’t think one gets a criminal record if they're not convicted of an actual crime. If it's determined that the guy wasn't aware what he was doing was wrong, I highly doubt he'd end up with a criminal record, unless perhaps he did something extremely invasive, in which case society needs to inter...

Even if you contact the cops, it's unlikely the guy will end up doing any time behind bars (but he will get a criminal record, for the "crime" of being socially clueless). Think of what this means: An angry guy, roaming free, hates you (for getting him a criminal record) and knows where y...
