Is it harder for autistic people to know they are getting traumatized? Why? Everything is traumatizing, so I'm not sure why one sort of being traumatized is going to stick out more than another. OK, not everything, but it's frequently a pretty long list. A bunch of us wind up dissociated pretty har...

There are plenty of feminists that do think people who are born with male genitals who identify as women are women and lobby for them. It is called Transfeminism . There are other feminists that think it is the most misogynistic idea possible. A similar fundamental disagreement to is autism a disab...

^ I'm probably the most unpopular student to have gone to my public school in the 460 years of its existence. I was treated like I was an ugly freak. I had no idea how to socialise well. That situation hasn't changed much over the years. I've periodically tried to socialise more, as it's regarded a...

Not trolling, I really feel this way about myself. I just like fitting in and don’t like being different. Being able to have nice things makes me feel more “normal”. I think we all, to an extent, want nice things and social status, we just don’t openly admit it. Maslow’s hierarchy of needs places s...

I've read so many posts about people doing well until they reach college/uni. Then pure brain power isn't enough , and the bad habits they got away with come home to roost. I have no great achievements , not in the way that such things are usually judged. I do my best to be a good dad,granddad, and...

I didn't mean it quite like that.. I apologise for misconstruing what you said. Don't worry about it, it was a valid interpretation. I've not come across many overachievers in the high IQ community. I've come across more than a few underachievers. It took me ages to find a good explanation for the ...

Its been building up for a while. Its really really stressful. I think it's basically latent xenophobia and also just bigotry and prejudice against me being a bit poor. - randomly ghosted repeatedly in different things that should be inclusive and easy like volunteering at a food bank or community ...

and a false sense of how smart you are. Well that certainly put me in my place. If I had a strong sense of self it wouldn't matter, but because I don't the wide ranging views of how intelligent/smart I am aren't easy to cope with. Some see me as no more than a fool. Others see me as a person with '...

That's very much how it happened to me. The seemingly inconsistent control over focus then made me used to be so confused about it that it frustrated me to no end. Because I've been working with autism only , not autism plus something else. Now I don't have the 'plus something else' and only the au...

It can be very helpful to separate sexuality from gender. Far too many people conflate or confuse themselves by assuming there is some link between the two! We we are talking about just one person, it makes little sense to delve into satistical data like 10% of the population being gay. Or X number...

Also, next week i'm starting an acting class. That should be fun. That should also give you a sense of just how much work it takes. At some point after that, you'd probably want to take some improv classes. At the end of the day, it's your life and you're free to live it as you wish. Just please do...

I cope with my life by stuffing my face with fast food and alcohol. I’ve maxed out two credit cards on purchasing things in order to be like the Joneses. Don't do that, the Joneses are broke. Realistically, masking isn't a magic bullet, it's a trade off, the work you put into making is work that ca...

@Moderators Can we lock this thread? It’s going off topic

If you want it locked, make sure to post over the the appropriate sub forum for the site, it will speed things up a lot as mods don't necessarily read every post in any sort of timely manner.
