Since many of us admired Martin Luther King Jr., would you say that his famous speech, "I have a Dream", could be applied to the Autistic community's social struggle for dignity and equality?

Autistic Pride Day was started in 2005 by a group of autistics. Some of the autistic founders happened to belong to the LGBTQ community.

Firstly, it's good to be in touch with you again. I really enjoyed watching this interview. I related very much to Dr Mordi, his expression of autism uncannily resembled my own. I also warmed to him enormously as a person and creative being in his own right. It is good to hear from you again too. M...

I think training in Karate did help me a great deal while growing up, as not only did i learn fighting skills that i could ...

Mostly I watch men because the aspie women are just unbearable. I can't stand the bouncy, smiley, cutesy "look at me, isn't being an aspie cool and interesting!" But now I see men doing the fake overly expressive YouTube persona as well. Ha ha ha :) I know what you mean. I actually like m...
