I just use my iPhone. I'm not very technology savvy. I have the YouTube app but the ads have increased over time. Why can't there just be one ad at the beginning then maybe a couple of 10-second ads throughout the video? Why do some ads have to go on for several minutes unless you're attentive to th...

I'd love to relive my childhood as a neurotypical. I had a decent, normal upbringing and a great childhood but the only thing that ruined it all was my brain being wired like it is. I missed out on sleepovers with friends and doing all the other things that adolescents do. It was very heartbreaking....

I was in a small town when the lady wasn't unfriendly. But I don't like the "you're autistic so you give off vibes" cliche because that just makes me feel self-conscious. I have a kind sort of expression about me, as many people have told me that. I'm a bit timid too but not unapproachable...

Yes all the time and I feel insulted. A few years ago I remember walking with my mum and an older lady was coming towards us on an electric scooter. I stood to the side to let her pass and gave her a nice, friendly smile. She just glared at me, so I just struggled it off and assumed she wasn't the f...

Sometimes I put one hand like that, when I'm at work walking from one bit to another but I've seen NTs do that so it isn't that odd.

I'm in my early 30s but I still fancy replying to your thread. :) My life itself isn't that bad but I don't like being me, as in having my brain. I do love a "standard" sort of life that many working class NTs live: living with partner/spouse, going to work, seeing family and friends when ...

Yes, I wish I was. I was diagnosed at 8 (very rare for an articulate female with only a mild case) and it was revealed to me straight away, probably because my parents got this advice: "it is best for the child if she knows about the diagnosis". So as soon as my parents pulled the assessme...

I don't like being lumped together with autism because then you get treated like you're low-functioning. Take the covid jabs for example. People with ASD are one of the top priority groups, even mild high-functioning cases like myself with no additional underlying health problems. I googled why auti...

I didn't know there are ads on YouTube and I watch it or listen several hours a day, but then I use Firefox with an adblocker. I can't understand why folks don't just block ads instead of moaning about them. :shrug: Because most people I know seem to have ads whenever they play a video on YouTube (...

I'm blonde-ish but I don't feel sexually attracted to black men. You seem to hear the most falsest of false information.

If you take a look at the pictures of themselves that people posted here, there happen to be many attractive autistic people here. Like Isabella said, there are some autistic people who look "angelic." You're attractive, judging by your avatar. You look a little bit like my (NT) boyfriend...

My mom thinks British boxer Anthony Joshua is good looking which I find perplexing. I mean his nose is to big and flattened through boxing. Maybe it's his height of 6ft6 and muscular body which gives him sex appeal? Same with the late singer Prince I don't see why women would find him physically at...

It's racist to not want to be friends with a black person. But when it comes to dating, you can't help what sort of physical appearances you're sexually drawn to, which is subjective to every individual.

I have friends that are black and I love them as friends.

I was once called a racist jerk on wrong planet when I said I have never been attracted to a black woman. Just because someone is a different race to me does not mean I am obliged to date them :roll: Who is asking you to date black women?? Well don't you think it's unfair to be called a racist jerk...
