I've been "accused" of being gay, being a basement dwelling loser, to being a drug addled product of incest. That said, no one has ever accused me of being autistic. I suppose the "yer ghey" label is more mean spirited to the guy who just kicked their ass.

There are children/people with Autism who have absolutely no cognitive function. They sit in the corner and makes noises, shred paper, rock back and forth, all day. Many children with Autism even have life threatening epilepsy that can be traced to their Autism. I don't understand why people are op...

Rhinox I am sorry if I have come across as rude, I did not mean to be rude or insulting and I apologise if thats how I have come across, but I did mean to be provocative. Verdandi and MrXxx, I did not suggest that Rhinox doesn't know what it's like to experience or have Autism. As Rhinox has Autism...

The end of the autistic spectrum where we Aspies live is one where our condition is defined by the very way we think, judge, and interact with this world. It colors our perceptions, its presence is felt in every judgement we make. We know no other way to live because we've always thought this way. ...

I was touching my clit while watching this and wished that I too had 300 orgasms a day. that's extremely insensitive considering that she actually has a medical disorder. :? if you read the later article i posted, one woman committed suicide over it. And the one in the original video LOVED her cond...

I tell bosses if there's an issue, but otherwise they don't need to know. Same with coworkers. It's none of their business, you owe them no explaination.

I usually ask friends/family or now my wife if I suspect someone is hitting on me. I don't recognize it as such, but on occasion I do get some weird vibe from people. I'll ask and they'll laugh and say 'yeah, they was hitting on you.' I had one girl who was a bit more forward. She came up to me at w...

People have commented, yes, but they don't call it/recognize it as stimming. I'm a huge Transformers fan. I always have at least one or two minicons or microbots on me. I fiddle around with them in my pocket or, when I have the opportunity, pull them out and just play with them. Nothing big, just ma...

It's a better paying job where he can have more of an impact on policy than he could with his single vote. Once he's out of office, he can spend his time as a lobbiest, pushing his agenda much more effectively than he ever could as an elected official. I don't think there's much more to it then that.

worth noting, the CAH people have put out a small holiday booster card set. It's 30 cards and they've set up a "pay what you wish" thing. They ask for $5. $3 covers their expenses, but given the fun I've had playing, it was well worth $10 to me.

I repeat the love for Cards Against Humanity. I helped organize a tourney for the overnight shift at my second job. Everyone loves it.

Please do not find this offensive, but ASD is a disease and diseases should be cured. We are ill and need help, no different then someone with bipolar or some other illness. Not sure I'd use the word disease, but even a high-functioning ASD is more debilitating than other "conditions" that are undo...

I deliberately avoided posting that as I try to avoid using foul language :D.


That's why I linked to instead of posting the image myself. ;)
