When I read it now: "Wrong Planet" is the leading community forum and resource supporting people with autism, Asperger's Syndrome and other neurological conditions. the phrase doesn't seem to have the same contrived, clumsy unnatural feel to it as it does in most of the sentences I've see...

The Forum is called like this: "Wrong Planet" is the leading community forum and resource supporting *people with *autism, *Asperger's Syndrome and other neurological conditions. § Maybe it's more politically correct. § I suppose it's unlikely that the part that you don't like from the su...

I thank you so much for your input! I am trying to understand why she isn't getting likes on her videos.

Honestly, from your description, I can't really tell if I think you are Autistic or not. You could be but it's hard to tell just from that. But one thing I know for absolute sure, you need a different therapist. If a therapist had said to me what this one said to you about not being Autistic because...

I am actually grateful that I was diagnosed in 2014 after the removal from the DSM. The reason is that everyone assumes that I am much higher functioning than I actually am because of my physical appearance and my ability to speak and do ADLS. What people don't realize is that severity can take many...

Can you guys check out this brand new Autistic Youtuber? She has been posting for about a month but I noticed that people are not liking her videos. I am wanting to know what you all honestly think of her. The channel is called MyWorldAutisitic. Here is the video she just posted. Thank you. I really...

Looks like most Aspies don't want person-first nomenclature then. It seems that health professionals have decided what's good for us without asking. Personally I don't see why anybody would prefer person-first anything, but if a ND really wanted me to use it, then it'd probably be a case of "o...

There are other things in life more important than semantic distinctions. As long as a person treats me with dignity, I don't care whether I'm called "autistic" or "a person with autism." That is very true. But unfortunately, and I can speak for myself, and I believe that many A...

I think "Autistic" and "Autistic Person" are both viable candidates. I'll admit that when I think about it, I'm not too crazy about "Person with Autism". To me that sounds like Autism is some kind of viral infection. But, other folk might like the term. Youre missing t...

You can also say that you are neurodivergent. That is a good term. It does not specify that you are Autistic, but it does specify that you are not neurotypical. You can also say, "I am an Autist," and if you were given a diagnosis or Asperger's, you can say, "I am Aspergian, instead o...

I respect whatever other people want to be called and I will address other people however they want to be addressed. But when it's about me, I insist that they use identity first language. I do not tolerate person first language when people are addressing me. And when I speak in general terms, like ...

We should definitely talk about expertise. It's a great topic. I don't think you find expertise. It is created, meaning you become an expert in something. For me, I tried different things that I thought I would be interested in. When I find something that I enjoy and that really gives me a sense of ...

Yesterday morning, I woke up very badly depressed, I felt soooo overwhelmed, toooo much pressure of what I have to do, I felt empty, I had no energy, I could not get out of bed, I felt like a very dark cloud over my head. I got up to go to the bathroom, then I went back to bed. Why Aspergers can do...
