With kids, I think a lot of it has to do with influence from friends and others at school. This. Some Aspies are obsessed with people they know. So are some NTs with mental disorders. Some Aspies are obsessed with celebrities, too... especially if it relates to a special interest. People fantasize ...

Then again, people move so much that they're always having to make new friends. It's not like in the past, when people had the same childhood friends in the neighborhood their whole lives. People move more now, so friendships are come and go. You have to keep meeting people over and over. And, afte...

All I am seeing is, it's a crime to be safe. Say what? They're saying "take reasonable measures to prevent your stuff from being taken." That's being responsible, not blaming the victim. It's responsible to not leave valuables unattended, etc. "Blaming the victim" is saying that someone brought som...

You see it a lot on deviantArt and YouTube. It's mainly kids between 13-20 that decide to self diagnose because they think it's cool. Most of them don't even have AS, but are just trolls. Yeah, you do see it a lot. Some aren't trolling, but use whatever condition they have as a "hey, it's totally n...

What kind of response should they give, anyway? People tend to say something like "oh, really?" when you tell them some condition or ailment of yours. That's socially polite. Everyone has some issue or condition or ailment, but most aren't something that casual friends around them need to know. I kn...
