I think the two way failure of empathy - between NT and AS people is far more important than the binary division of empathy into two separate divisions. Worthwhile noting that as the minority, AS people have much more experience in accommodating NT needs than the other way around, as > 90% of our i...

Here is the link to the London Conference in July 2018. I am not well enough to attend, that amount of travel is beyond me at the moment. I hope someone from Wrong Planet will attend. https://participatoryautismresearch.wordpress.com/2018/05/07/parc-critical-autism-studies-conference-call-for-paper...

Autists need to realise the following: A. The hyper-competitive nature of our society is an emergent property of civilisation, it is not typical human nature. Human babies are intrinsically helpful and collaborative (Michael Tomasello, Why we cooperate, 2009), but they soak up cultural norms and bel...

I concur with your assessment. Human politics at scale is not about achieving shared understanding. It has always been about attempts at empire creation/maintenance in the absence of understanding and empathy for groups of “others”. Power relationships are constructed via stories and via technologic...

I speak German and have listened to an interview with Hans Asperger from the 1970s. The detached way he talks about atypical behaviour and atypical people is very similar to what you hear from autism professionals today, not in any way inappropriate by typical cultural norms, yet still sending a cle...

Some of these stories are truly beyond belief. It makes you wonder whether it is such a good idea to be recognised as 'human'. The unfolding of the story around Hans Asperger was interesting to observe, with many people from the autism industry jumping in, as if the specific label makes any signific...

My hope is that modern global peer to peer communication technology allows us to make faster progress than 50 years ago. This excellent by Robert Chapman article https://intersectionalneurodiversity.wordpress.com/2016/11/29/did-gender-norms-cause-the-autism-epidemic/ should also give society somethi...

Sorry I don't follow? Very strong social skills: become a CEO or at least a mid-level manager in a company, a politician, a celebrity, a known journalist, etc. Assimilate in a crowd seamlessly: slightly below average level of social skills. There is more and more evidence that what you refer to (at...

The stereotype that autists have difficulty with collaboration is the result of a fundamentally different perspective on the purpose of social interaction. Good "aspie social skills" are quite different from good "neurotypical social skills". In particular I believe that aspies c...

Delighted to see you back jbw Thanks, and good to see you are still active! There is a lot of work still to be done.
