Excellent analysis.

APA too frequently relies on double-dipping stats. They find comfort in pathology over diversity, them vs Us

Might I refer to it as a link b/t APA & "Cluster F personalities"?

Since your questions are based on false pretenses I don't want to state or ask if there is a scientifically/statistically proven link between having Aspergers and having a cluster B (narcissistic, histrionic, antisocial, borderline) personality disorder. Since only a few nt people fall into this cat...

1. is it true that people with mild autism or Aspergers can never have cluster B personalities? . The topic requires more research. I don't see why those disorders had to rule out each other - but I met people misdiagnosed with cluster B before obtaining the right diagnoses of autism, so the resear...

I never had a migraine headache in my life, but yesterday I got a Scintillating scotoma (an aura that preludes migraines), but with no migraine. Not good, as Scintillating scotoma is also associated with stroke and epilepsy, and being on the spectrum I'm very likely to suffer from the latter (I've ...

I am glad autistic is used to describe a wider variety of people these days. i am glad everybody is not using it as a complete negative anymore. I am still careful about where I talk about it, although where I work now there seems to be more than the usual who I suspect might be. It makes the job m...

I don't believe Gender Identity Disorder is a mental disorder at all, for example, as it is cured by physical means. Good point! It's interesting about the psychological profession though - I have a knack, of sorts, for being unclassifiable. Which means psychometric testing doesn't work with me - t...

I don't believe the lies the "experts" put on autistics (what you call alexithymic characteristics), but I use their beliefs to better understand how neurotypicals perceive us anthropologically - to navigate the world they control (i.e. TRW) with enough success to bring home a paycheck. L...

Retarded means slow. Retard has pretty much always been a pejorative. If people want to reappropriate that word into something positive I would be for that effort. But that's silly. Why should we change the meaning of existing words. That's like going through the dictionary and scoring out words we...

I find that this happens to me quite often. I can't seem to pinpoint what is overstimulating me, and it drives me nuts. Any thoughts/advice on how to deal with this? I was getting agitated, then heard my daughter comment that she was shutting off TV because of the high pitched noise it was making. ...

For those who want full description of Echolalia. What seems to have escaped posters is that echolalia is not pathogenic, but is developmental (a step toward typical verbal communication) and occurs in all speakers. I get so sick of people always making anything associated with autism a disease, ev...

It is a word that means slow. Language always provides non-literal, abstract ways to precisely express one's ideas. If we politicize a word, its meaning morphs. "Retard" changed from a general adjective to talk about something that was moving, but at a slower speed, to label and segregate ...
