I get very sensitive to people's emotions and I don't like seeing people unhappy, as it makes me unhappy. If I saw a small child lost or hurt themselves or about to be in some sort of danger or whatever, I'd instinctively want to help or comfort them. If I see a regular temper tantrum in the superma...

I repeat some phrases that I like hearing myself say. I also mock-box, and punch the walls (though never hard). I'm known as "The Wolfman" at my local supermarket. I don't mind that for some reason. It's because I howl sometimes when I go shopping. I should really be "embarrassed&quo...

I'm communicative always---but I do sometimes to "autistic" things in the privacy of my own home. My wife thinks I'm totally nuts. What do you mean by "autistic things"? (Just curious). Because I think everyone does their own quirky thing in their own home. My boyfriend sometime...

There are many songs that I can't stand, but one of them is "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" from "Mary Poppins". I don't know why. Is it because the sound of it is something quite atrocious? Nah, it's cos if you say it loud enough you'll always sound precocious. @Joe90 I wa...

I feel like some “masking” is presenting to others a “public face,” which NT’s do to a large extent. Very much so. I think of it as, there's "masking" as in "tape" where some things are covered while other things are left visible, or are framed in certain ways - and there's &quo...

Well, I suppose it does take some social adeptness and social imagination to be able to mask. Probably. I find masking very difficult. I don't. It just comes natural to me, so there must be some sort of social adeptness in me somewhere. In fact I don't mask that much, I don't think. Someone give an...

People on the spectrum aren't meant to meet people in pubs and bars, because whatever effort we'll make people would just respond with the dreaded words of social rejection; ''stop following me'', ''I wasn't talking to you'', and ''do you want something??'' - even those of us who know better to be ...

If one precludes one’s self from being attracted to a person of a certain race because of false notions pertaining to that race, that’s racism.


Yes that's true.

I'm just not clear on how "rejection sensitivity" differs from "emotional flashbacks" from trauma, especially in situations where the flashbacks are about rejection. It seems kind of redundant, but maybe that label RSD is more for people who only have RSD and not ADHD, ASD, or S...

The fear of rejection could be an emotional flashback. Well I did have this girl at school who was a huge rejecter to just me. I believe she was a narcissist though. She wasn't popular or really that liked, but she knew how to be quite dominant and make the other girls in the group afraid of her, e...

Black people are attractive but I've just never found myself sexually attracted to a black man myself, but a good male friend of mine is black. I've never felt sexually attracted to an Asian men either but it doesn't mean to say they're not attractive. I don't feel sexually attracted to thin men eit...

It is not racist to not be sexually attracted to a certain race (skin colour). It's racist to not want to be friends with people just because of their skin colour, but you can't help who you feel drawn to sexually. Some white people only feel attracted to black people. Some black people feel attract...
