Due to having virtually no 9th grade mathematics education, I have a lot of holes in my knowledge of algebra. This made algebra II extremely difficult. I have since dropped out and started homeschooling and I'm trying to get my GED. THe problem I'm having is with math. Every time I take a math pract...

So, we talked about some stuff like our friends. I babbled about socioeconomic systems several times but he said he found it interesting. We hugged and kissed each others cheeks several times. We kissed on the lips twice, one halfway through the night and one right before we parted. We held hands ne...

It was literally a gay youth group. As in it was full of gay, lesbian, and transgendered teens. I didn't want to insult him because he seems like a nice guy. He just got a bit hyperactive after the soda. As I said, he had ADHD and I don't know if he could control himself after three or four sodas. B...

So I was at a gay youth group and one guy started spining around my chair with his rolling chair burpoing in my ear. I didn't know how to respond. I found it quite gross but I didn't know how to politely tell him to stop. I've never had this happen before. He has ADHD and he drank three or four cans...

I don't think there is any alliance between us, yet. I think once the neurodiversity movement takes off, the gays will be our greatest allies. I am queer and Aspergian and identify with both cultures strongly. Most of the LGBTQ people I have met either were pro-neurodiversity before meeting me or be...

Well, nearly any hot guy who hits on me I end up getting infatuated with. Probably has something to do with my low self esteem. Any advice on stopping this, because it causes problems?

Oh boy... Well when I was seven I decided I wanted to dress up as a superhero for school. One boy, who was rather heavy, also dressed up as a superhero and he went up to me and said "there isn't enough room for the two of us here." I responded, without any intention of offending him, "You're not tha...

So, I want to be an activist and a writer. For a variety of reasons, I am now incapable of going to normal high school and I will be for about the next year or so. Once I am able to, I plan to study at two year and then move up to regular college and then university. This is what my aunt and uncle d...

Syzy, next time I go I'll get it.
xD It's probably a bit worse than some lolcats, and maybe on par with that one, but don't get your hopes up. NOTHING is more absurd than the Bush Administration was.
I'd say it's slightly under PETA's Sea Kitten campaign.

I didn't think of it being a marketing strategy, thanks to everyone who suggested that. That's a possibility, but it doesn't look at all like it's trying to be humourous. It just looks rather silly. Vispera, yeah, I guess the impact is pretty minimal, but I'd be concerned that many people after seei...

Well, there is this really nice Chinese family that runs a vegan cafe nearby where I live. They have pamphlets they distribute that promote veganism. The issue is that they look ridiculous. They aren't misleading or lying and are actually extremely accurate. The problem is that they have a chicken s...

Thank you. I already shop at thrift stores. I was mostly asking about what items of clothing are normal. I went vegan a LONG time ago so any animal products I have I have probably forgotten they were animal products, with the exception of one wool coat. Willard, I'm not saying don't consume anything...

I want to engage in activism. Unfortunately unless I tone down my extremely unusual fashion I will not be taken seriously. It sucks but that's reality. The issue is that I do not know what an acceptable look would be that would not change by the trends. I refuse to follow trends. I am planning ot fi...

I have noticed that when I behave in a manner that violates social norms or is merely very unusual I often get accused of attention seeking. The same happens to osme more eccentric friends. Why do so many people assume this? I don't get the connection.
