What are they going to do? They should make their own cartoons then because I don't think that any artists in western countries who make them would pay any attention to that.

Beware of charming people. Beware of people who fill you with compliments and make you feel like royalty. Beware of people who make you feel good. Beware of people who want to fall in love with you quickly are whom you fall in love with quickly. No offense, but a lot of that is bad advice - and wil...

And you've revived a 7 year old thread of mine. Well done.

Well...if the OP feels that way, he should seek to prove people wrong.


When I first saw this thread, I initially thought the OP was female. Now I see that gender isn't listed, so maybe I was wrong.

As long as they don't get bitter about ending up with one and become bigots like the ones that support the crap as described in this article: https://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Cassandra_affective_deprivation_disorder At last Rationalwiki has an accurate description unlike the people who support this ide...

Yeah, if online dating didn't work then that's probably not going to work either. He's basically asking strangers on the internet to suggest dates to him. How would they know him well enough to do that?

Why? So, Earth must be a utopia first before we do anything else? If we stuck to that logic we'd all still be living in caves.

"Natural human exclusion" is systemic oppression. Many people in general tend "naturally" to be prejudiced against people different from themselves (in whatever way: race, cultural background, economic class, etc. -- as well as neurology), or at least to have difficulty empathiz...

I've read a lot on this forum about how Christianity fits perfetly well with having Aspergers. But I don't understand why. Religion is all about conforming to a set of ideas regardless of your own original thoughts on the matter. I've had a great interest in Christianity and early Judaism for the p...
