Sometimes, I'd rather have cancer than to be autistic and depressive. A person with cancer gets sympathy, encouragement, and love when people find out about their illness. With autism and depression, you're "crazy", "retarded", "slow", and people will tell you to your face how they'd never trust a "...

Say we don't recognize others have minds.say we have no empathy. ASK US!DON"T SAY SOMETHING ABOUT SOMEONE WITHOUT ASKING THEM! I hear you bro. Have had a lot of that growing up, being talked about without asking me for any input :x That gets on my last one. And the scientific research community doe...

This is one of the reasons I wish I was mute. I can write my butt off but let me try to convey ideas with speech and I sound like I have an intellectual disability. Small talk is absolute torture. I picture Hell as an eternity where you're forced to do small talk non-stop. I think I'd rather have th...

I've been wondering about what are the differences in moral judgment and development in people on the autism spectrum. My sense of morality has always been strong. Even as a 6 year-old, I found it hard to misbehave like the other kids in the classroom because I couldn't understand why anyone would w...

As for the discussion about the legality of guns... I don't care if they are everywhere and that they've been around for years. That does not make something right. We are responsible for making a better future regardless of the status quo. We are such a violent nation with even more violent origins ...

Nooooooo! :wall:

We don't need this now, especially after that so called "scientific study" about ASD people being murderers.

As someone upthread said, this kind of reprehensible behavior is learned, not a "natural outcome of being human". It pisses me off that people still use the natural fallacy to excuse acts of bullying. It's as if the majority likes the world just as it is since it benefits them by making their childr...

I don´t believe there is such thing as "age-inapropriate" toys. :D I tried Googling "adult toys" once...and by "adult", I meant toys like those you'd keep on your work desk as stress relief geared toward grown people as opposed to kids. However, Google had other ideas of what "adult toys" meant. :l...

When I went to take my drivers license test at age 25, me and my grandfather were waiting for one of the road testers to take me out. To pass the time, I took out a yo-yo and started playing with it. My grandfather was like, "Girl, put that yo-yo down! You getting a drivers license and you here play...

This actually has nothing to do with what Darwin wrote about. Darwin's talk about "survival of the fittest" didn't mean "survival of the strongest ." Fittest refers to "most adapted to the environment" not to "Who can be the biggest as*hole to everyone around him." (Yay I get to use my anthropology...

VERY tragic story. Very sad. I also noticed this bit in the same report: "Michael, 15, suffers from autism and Asperger syndrome." There's that report, yet again, of us suffering from what's built into us. Next time I see a black person I'm going to ask him, "Hey, how does it fee to suffer from bla...

Is it just me or have these little jokers these days lost their mind? I'm in my late 30s and I don't remember kids being this sadistic back when I was young. Yeah, they would bully but to do something so injurious to someone was just not thought of. These kids sound like little socio-paths who neede...

Okay, I am friends with a lady who's really nice to me. But damn if she and her husband believe in the most outrageous, nutty things I've heard in my entire life. I know I'm the one who's supposed to be "crazy" due to being on the spectrum. But for god's sake, since when did being a Christian also i...

I know one thing...I haven't bought a single music CD in years thanks to the Internet nor have I needed to physically visit a movie theater or video rental place. I also can watch whatever tv shows I want at my own pace and don't have to own a TV much less a cable or satellite subscription. Even tho...
