Also, 10% of people with Klinefelters syndrome (XXY) are autistic. Using prevalence estimates of 2% for autism in males and 0.2% for Klinefelters, and applying Bayes theorem, that's 1% of autistic males having an extra X chromosome - 5 times higher than the background frequency. Also, autistic peopl...

It's also possible that his IQ score isn't accurate? Accuracy presupposes that he did the test properly.

I never picked up any female traits from my friends. Probably because I wasn't able to have any really until the age of sixteen, being sent to a school that had three girls in the entire school. I do wonder how masking works in autistic trans girls. Are they likely to copy their male peers, or their...

I wonder how this plays with the tendency of autistic girls to mask by copying social behaviours from other girls? I'm thinking of the case of male children with gender dysphoria (since that's what I have personal experience with...). Whether we'd be more likely to copy boys and so mask any feminini...

I've only been blocking my testosterone for seven weeks. In that time, the main difference I've noticed is that most of my anxiety has gone, which means I'm far less irritable than I used to be. I feel there are a lot more changes to come, but I don't know whether they're related to the reduction in...

The great thing is, it's only a couple of hundred words. You don't need a fully fledged story idea to write it, just a fragment.

I'm using it both to get into a solid habit of writing, and also to explore ideas I want to flesh out further into longer stories.

The Secret World of Arrietty.

I wish they could have had the house, but they had to move at some point.

So no, we aren't. Just the same BS that's used constantly to deny that the English exist as a people. Because if a nation is formed in a non-immaculate conception, they don't get to exist, or something.

Those are not ethnic groups that exist in England today.

It's all so tiresome.

Probably because the evidence to charge them on isn't actually that strong. They might be able to get Chauvin on a manslaughter charge, but the other three will go free. Why accept a plea bargain in that case? The arrest transcript is here , if anyone is interested in reading it. There's a case to b...

There is no such thing as an English national. The only nationality available in Britain is British. Not English, not Scottish, not anything else. EDIT: I suppose someone could feel *culturally* English, just as Rachel Dolezal felt culturally African-American. Is that enough to claim membership of a...

Not quite. Very, very short stories, but they're still stories.

People tell them all the time in the form of jokes.

I'm saying that if you can be a member of an ethnic group *without actually being descended from that ethnic group*, there is no reason why Rachel Dolezal can't identify herself as African-American.
