Until not too long ago, I was really bad with it. Like, really bad. It was partially sensory issues, (though that was probably a very small part of it) partially not understanding how important of a social it actually was, partially getting myself to get into a schedule of doing that every day, and ...

Sheldon is actually higher functioning than a lot of aspies, myself included.

Look up the song "Indo Smoke" by Mista Grimm on Youtube. That song is about smoking weed. When it was released in 1992, there was a HUGE uproar. One pop music station in my hometown flat out refused to play it, calling toking a "deathstyle" (yes, on the radio!). We're talking a city of a million pe...

It's usually fine until someone calls me on it, and then it becomes instantly annoying.

Breaking Bad is not on anymore, and when it was, it was the exception. Game of Thrones is overrated. Not as good as Lost, The Wire, and The Sopranos. Comedy is not as good either. For every Modern Family, Family Guy, and Veep, you get five of these terrible sitcoms that show up for three episodes an...

I think, like any minority group, we need allies in the majority to help us out, so the NTs working there is not a problem for me. The reality is that our deficiencies, for a lot of us, are very noticeable, and in the cases of some people, very detrimental to our functioning, and a lot of NTs are no...

Down Syndrome has a much higher employment rate. There aren't really enough statistics on marriage and friendships and things like that, but I would guess it's about equal for both disorders. Social ability is more important than intellectual ability for succeeding in this world, though the health f...

I'm not talking about anything deep or philosophical. I'm talking about literally looking at yourself in the mirror, and thinking that the person you see looks different than what you feel like you would look like. Sometimes I'll see my reflection, and it doesn't feel like I look like I do, and it m...

A few things: If you're writing an AS character, and you make sure he exhibits enough of the diagnostic criteria relatively frequently, you've made an accurate portrayal, as far as I'm concerned. Max didn't know he was autistic. That's not the same as not knowing he was different. They don't let him...

You're not alone in feeling this way. I think a lot of people feel this way simply because they've grown up. They would have disliked current kids' television programs no matter their quality. You look back on the shows you liked as a kid because they were an integral part of your childhood. In the...

Remember to mention that us aspies have many superior qualities in comparison to neurotypicals. :wink: IDK, I feel like we don't get to have it both ways. Like, is it fair that we want to tell other people that our deficiencies aren't a big deal, and then still want to brag about the supposed super...
