I'm a bit weird, because when I go through sensory overload, I usually go to my room and put on some of my favorite rock songs. Total silence drives me nuts. Why is that weird? When you're overwhelmed the overwhelmed-ness can just bounce around inside your head. Listening to something consistent, f...

They don't like to generally spark gossip and such by advertising every time somebody is banned. You're not going to get banned for replying to a message or something silly like that. If you think someone might have been banned, or wonder why someone hasn't posted or something, you can always PM a ...

I, too, have been impressed. I voted for him because I liked the things he was saying, but I didn't really believe at the time that he meant much of it. So far, he's been at least trying to keep his campaign promises. The only major flaw I see in his functioning is that he's attempting to apply comm...

You seem to make a great deal of arguments based on assumptions. You assume that people (NT's specifically) have no need for a support forum. You assume that if one were available here, no additional NT's would make use of it. You assume that having an NT oriented forum would cause more problems th...

(Relevant aside: I recongnize men are welcome, but I always feel like I'm spying just by looking there, let alone posting.) Slightly relevant aside to that one: Since the Women's Discussion section topics show up on the front page, sometimes guys post there without even noticing the section. It see...

So let's just ignore the idea of two forums... There are many NT's posting about relationship advice here. To me, that's a good indicater of the need for a forem dedicated to that. I've already explained why NT's may prefer a separate section. As for why WP is an apporpriate place to host such a gr...

...people ... may ... feel they are posting critisms in "enemy territory". As a male, I would be hesitant to post in a women's forum... I would assume it would be the same for an NT posting in an Aspie/autism forum. People seeking support generally look to those in a similiar situation. Certainly, ...

Mostly because there are few other sites available, and it is aspie/autism related. However, having separate sections (aspie/autistic and non-aspie/autistic) isn't necessary. Although there is a relationship section, having a section for partners would be similiar to having a section for parents, i...

There's a women's only forum, children's forum, teen's forum, parent's forum... How about a forum for NT partners of Aspies? There are no other sites that I know of that are decent for partners. I suggest Partner's forum with two sub-forums. One for no Aspies allowed, and one, Aspies allowed. Besid...

Also, though, I have read arguments that when girls show AS it is more severe..... don't know what to say about that one. :roll:

All that means is that it takes a more severe case for it to ever be recognized.

I don't really see physical appearances so much as when I look into someone eyes and they are kind, to me that makes them attractive..if that makes any sense. That's not at all unusual.. that's why they say "beauty is in the eye of the beholder." It's not always an objective thing, and what somebod...

Might it be possible to add "meet-ups and events" to the description of the Autism Politics, Activism, and Media Representation section? I thought those things were autism activism. I can't see how monthly meet-ups in pubs, like the ones lotusblossom is organizing in London, fall under 'autism acti...
