Probably the worst place to take a first date is to your parent's funeral.

Technically I don't have dyspraxia. I have NLD, which has resulted in a lot of the same symptoms. I have difficulty telling where things are in relation to other things, as well as general difficulty with motor skills. Also, my gait is weird, like I'm wearing a heavy invisible parka.

Yeah, I have seasonal affective disorder. It affects me between November and March, though December to February are especially severe. In the past I've just slogged through it, but this year I'm going to get a full-spectrum light, which are supposed to be really effective. This is the Wikipedia arti...

Equity studies, with a focus on disability studies. I figure, hell, if I can make a living off my sideshow-quality mind, I might as well.

I doubt very much that Autism Speaks will change its core values. It doesn't believe that autism should exist. Attempting to sue activists who spoke out against it didn't work. Now it's trying another tactic. Attempting to negotiate with these people won't change them; it will only change us. It wil...

Does punk music and metal music also offend you? I have a hard time with both of those genres due to the loudness thing, and I used to dislike rap, though in the last few years I've warmed to it a little bit. There is, for instance, a fantastic Eminem song called Stan which is unusually melodic for ...

My first crush was a girl in grade two who I married in a ceremony in the playground. The next year we were divorced when she punched me in the mouth on school photo day. Blood all down my formal white shirt.
I think she's a pyrotechnician now.

I do the intense staring thing at people when they're talking to a group that I'm a part of (like in a classroom, for instance). I only become aware of it when the teacher looks at me funny, like they're disconcerted. One of my high school teachers said I had the tendency to stare right through her....

Calvin Coolidge sounds like he was a bit Aspie: withdrawn, insular, quiet. He's usually ranked as being pretty average by historians. Neither great nor poor.

If your face and body language aren't really expressive, you might have to verbalize your enjoyment. Just saying stuff like, "I'm having a really good time." would probably help. You might also want to mention that your feelings aren't always physically shown.

Aspies can certainly be vets. I know an Aspie vet; he owns a practise with his extroverted NT wife. She deals with their staff, he deals with the finances, and they both treat animals.

I do quite a bit of writing. In the last creative writing class I took at university, nobody- including my prof- knew I had Asperger's. So it was interesting to hear their feedback. With one of my stories, my prof said it was "emotional, but distrustful of emotion". That not only fairly summed up th...

One of the similarities between autism and being LGBTQ is the issue of invisibility. Most people with autism can choose to pass and pretend to be "normal". Most people with other disabilities don't have that option. Actually, most people who are marginalized don't have the option of invisibility. Bu...

Mr. Robison, it's great to hear from you. I loved your book. My intention was not to criticize you. I believe it's important that when creating a body of literature within a community that individual works react to and communicate with each other. That's how a body of literature grows, develops, and...
