If we were going by what's best to differentiate the two, shouldn't it just be autism w and w/out intellectual disability?

Is broader functioning/Narrow functioning a better word to use compared to HFA-LFA.

I don't disclose my diagnosis because I think it will give people the wrong idea about me and autism. Ironic your scared to give the wrong idea, so you give no idea at all. But yeah it's tricky. I told some folk on an online message board. And basically they started condescending to me, like I'm in...

The short answer is YES! I'm sure they exist but they are so few and so far apart in space AND in time that sapient species of different solar systems usually go extinct before they ever encounter another sapient species from another solar system. So they may exist-but for practical purposes they d...

I'm one of the rare believers that aliens do exist and some form of human has made contact with these ETs. My theory why they do not contact us, is that they likely did in the past. Part of our species migrated to space, and made the earth a protected reserve. It would explain why we have not made c...

Often on WP I've seen a conflict of ideas and opinions forms into two opposed factions, between apologists and challengers. That's ok. Then instead of remaining a debate of ideas, disagreement turns into personal attacks on the messengers, not the message. I'm hoping that won't happen with this thr...

Honestly nt guys care very little of whether or not a girl is autistic. It comes down to being more about appearance. On the other extreme autistic men are pretty much dependent on money or talent to get a girl. I wouldn't say it's entirely that bad, but in either case. But make no mistake attractio...

Whats wrong with appearing condescending. You start acting submissive or humble, and in a week these same people will start saying you lack confidence and have no back bone. You can never win with these sorts of people. They always want you playing their game as a novice, as they age you will learn ...

BuyerBeware, I think society is capable of mass change when it comes to issues like this. Disabled people used to be treated far worse than they are today. An unrelated example is society's attitude to smoking. It wasn't so long ago that smoking in restaurants was acceptable, now you can't even smo...

I use to be part of group that did so.

However I haven't kept in touch with them in quite some time.

Its great, I'm just too busy with real life crap to have time for it.

It's been a continual problem, I'm in a program I love engineering mixed with business. But the amount of group work is intense. Right now I'm choosing to do it alone, as I can't find a partner that actually gives a fluff about their gpa and willing to work with the class nut job. Worst is people ar...

Michael Dorn has confirmed the next Star Trek series will be Captain Worf . Very unlikely to happen, the fact that he is pressuring the powers at be, is really only detracting from the idea he someone they want to work with. Unless of course its done as a high end fan production, for say netflicks ...

new idea I have to merge my past concepts with the idea of linking it with tng. Star trek Federation chronicles. Linking a younger picard, to a group of lower decks crew. Picard questioning his desire to remain captain of the stargazer(canon) Comes in contact with section 31. It could easily segway ...

I enjoy playing up the sociopath persona.

Originally it was a coping strategy mimicking the traits that seemed most human.

However I embrace it at times.

About Peter the Great, What evidence exists to suggest that he had AS.

Happened to catch the premier of the first episode last night. Thought it was good and has some good potential. Though I suppose the length of the storyline is very finite. There tons of nuclear work done after hiroshima. They can just call it a manhattan team or whatever. Anyhow I think the show i...
