If you don't slam your car door, it won't close all the way.

Doctors only said I had language disorder and one social worker noted I had autistic like behavior. I was also diagnosed with ADD but it was always suspected from when I was around age 5 or either 7. But my mom said she always knew I had something. I was also diagnosed with auditory processing disor...

In light of british actress stephanie davies coming out as hfa at a late age. Just wondered is there a link between severity and age of diagnosis? I mean if you can go up to your 40's without anyone mentioning autism then surely the symptoms must be mild in comparison to a 2-3 year old that is susp...

I think everyone has privileges. If you are white, you have white privilege but you might not have class privilege or NT privilege or cis privilege or straight privilege. If you are black, you might have straight privilege and class privilege, and so on. But unfortunately people use this term to inv...

I can't watch the video now. I do believe "white privilege" exists. Just like "male privilege" existed back in Victorian days. And many other "privileges" in the past: like "yeoman privilege" vis-à-vis the serfs. But to harp on it, and let it affect how you v...

Of course POS can be racist too, are they saying Chinese people can't be racist against another minority or Japanese or Caucasians, Jamaicans, etc.? What would people call it if someone was being judged for being white? Maybe give it another name then. Perhaps give it another name when the minority ...

I think social media like Twitter and Facebook are getting more popular than internet forums so people are migrating there. Plus there is Reddit too. You have the ability to block users. You can't really on forums so you have to put up with their posts and learn to scroll right by them and not read ...

I thought Tiana Marshall was someone who made that video about autistic people lacking empathy so they rape and it's been removed several times, or was that another Tiana Marshall and they just had the same name? I recall the person who made the video saying she got diagnosed with mild AS.

"ok boomer" is just a phrase and it's not meant to mean someone born between 1946-1964. It means set of beliefs and it's pretty ageist and prejudice because this isn't a boomer thing, it's a human thing in general. Anyone can be ignorant or racist or a phobic. I bet older adults will start...

I thought public schools were not allowed to turn kids with disabilities away unless the kid poses a danger to other kids or there disability is so severe they cannot provide a learning environment for them? Only private schools can turn kids away.

I see nothing wrong with wearing diapers. Not wearing them and being able to use the toilet on your own when you are a kid is a sign of success and growth development. Unless the kid has a weak bladder and has wetting or messing issues, they should be in diapers but even for a child being made to we...

Kids thought I was in high school. Probably because of my social issues so they thought I was gay because I wasn't dating any boys.

do women use hints more and double meanings more than guys do? This is something I have noticed online at places such as at Reddit. men are always painted as assholes because they are less emotional and more logical and problem solvers and they also don't seem to read between the lines well and not ...

They are talking about cognitive empathy. Perspective taking, understanding feelings, reading social cues which many autistic people have troubles with. Many people lack empathy for others who have never been in their situation because they cannot imagine it. They think just because they have been i...
