Amateurs can't diagnose you over the internet or anything, but my opinion based on the information you provided is that you might have AS, in addition to social anxiety or maybe even general anxiety. As for your confusion over orientation and/or gender, that is unrelated to AS but not as rare. There...

Racal groupings like "white" and "black" are social constructs. Genetic differences are more complicated than that - negroids and australoids both have dark skin, but are very different otherwise. That, and many people are mixed anyways. I read somewhere that 1/3 of american "whites" had at 12.5% bl...

My first rule of debate is this:

Don't win for the wrong reasons. If you defeat the truth, everyone loses, including you.

I took some lessons in Kung-Fu and was told about Qi. I am a skeptic, but I try to keep an open mind in general. I also never assume that anything is completely "black and white." Some of the theory might be true without all of it being true. Here is a link about the subject. Qigong Wikipedia I hav...

Please don't confuse soluble and insoluble fiber. They are not the same. Fruits and especially vegetables have soluble fiber, which is good for eliminating cholesterol. It can also ferment in your gut, causing gas and bloating. The "skin" of seeds and grains contains insoluble fiber so the seed can ...

Thanks for the help. I guess having it on record may be risky...do we know if there is any bad connotations associated with the concept? People may see "autism" and assume you're psychotic, mentally retarded, or who knows what else. It may have effects on employment, health insurance, gun ownership...

so far, while some of the things you said are weird or "too much info", i still think none of it has anything to do with AS not to say that you can't have it, just nothing here to indicate either way it's quite common for people with AS to have social anxiety problems, just like being blind can make...

It takes some guesswork, but yes, it's possible. As an example, your response suggests you don't take me seriously, and that you're being a jerk for no good reason. Just because someone joined this forum on April 1st does not automatically make them or anything they say a joke. You're right, it's p...

Welcome to WP! I'm also interested in history. Ever read Asimov's Chronology of Science and Discovery? Sounds like AS to me, except for the metaphors and stuttering which may be unrelated. Dyspraxia causes motor skills problems, which some people with AS have and others don't. Personally I think it ...

Sounds more schizoid than AS to me.

Regardless, no reason to feel guilty about it.

Harder to gauge reactions through a computer screen?

You can gauge reactions? Are you sure you have AS?

Oh wait, this was posted april 1st. You got me.

Almost all of what you said sounds like anxiety, anxiety, and more anxiety. What little is left sounds totally normal and/or insignificant. I can make an improvised speech in front of a large audience, no problem. But I can't read body language enough to know when it's my turn to speak in face-to-fa...
