I think they're mostly happy with me, but the fact that I'm atheist probably disappointed them a bit. They believe in religious tolerance and think God cares more if you're a good person rather than if you worship Him, but I think they'd still prefer I was a Christian. Biggest thing I'm disappointed...

According to an alleged expert who works for the autistic society in the UK autism usually is inherited randomly. Basically if you get autism it has nothing to do with with other people in your family having the condition. Do you think he’s right or not? That's nonsense. If it's inherited, it's not...

I'm not a supporter of the neurodiversity movement anymore, and I certainly don't agree with that claim. From my perspective, NDs need to learn how to cope with their differences, how to function among NTs, and how to build their own networks and groups with their own preferences at the center. The...

I still use the term Asperger's sometimes even though he was who he was. I identify as Autistic because of the severity of my symptoms but even though I think Nazis are horrific, evil, and satanic, I don't have an emotional association with the term Asperger's Syndrome. But I respect that each pers...

I'm autistic, and a single mom to a 15 month old who might be starting to show signs of being autistic as well. She is verbal (actually precociously so, she's said 61 different words and occasionally uses short sentences) and doesn't have any really serious delays. But she's hyperfocusing, stimming ...

I'm so glad my parents aren't like this. I would be so miserable if my parents bought into this.

I thought I'd make a poll on this because I'm just interested. Most people say that autistic parents having autistic children is just coincidental but I think genes play a part. Only people who have not been keeping up with autism research say that. A genetic cause of autism is very well-establishe...

I read that even a cold can lead to deadly complications such sepsis. And pneumonia, of course. But I think that's mostly in people who are elderly or have immunity disorders. But you could be incubating the virus and not know you have it yet, and end up giving it to someone with those conditions, ...

Hello wonderful people!

It’s really telling that the anti-abortion crowd have to resort to lies in order to support their arguments. “Baby killing” indeed :roll: No babies are ever killed by abortion, because abortion doesn’t relate to babies. That’s all the proof you need that there’s nothing wrong with abortion. If ther...

The time span of evolution is not measured in years, but in generations. How fast evolution can occur is dependent on how long it takes for a newly conceived individual to get to the point of reproducing. Human evolution occurs slowly because it takes a decade or two at minimum for us to get from co...

I'm sure giving birth to a baby is 1000 times more sensory triggering (severe pain) than breastfeeding/cuddling a baby. It's a one-time event that everyone expects you to find overwhelming. Meanwhile, breastfeeding and cuddling are things you generally do for hours each day while caring for a baby,...

Try adding spices you like in place of the salt.
