I'm just catching up on the show now, and I like the interpretation. I like characters like Abed from Community, who show a fully functioning aspie at work and in social situations, but I also like characters like this, who show how difficult it can be for some aspies to be like that. I definitely r...

I think it's accurate as far as the character goes, but I think other movies like Adam are far more detailed. Like, I wouldn't recommend this for someone to understand what Asperger's is, but at the same time, I do think this character is a realistic aspie character. I don't think the movie was as g...

I don't like it when anyone goes around saying they have it just because of a few minor tendencies. I don't think Owl City is diagnosed. I think it's self-diagnosed, and he just seems way too socially competent in interviews and stuff. If he has it, it's either very mild, or he had worked tremendou...

Sorry if my question is offensive, but as a NT who is interested in autism, I am a little puzzled. At first, I thought people with autism didn't know they have problems in communication. But as I log on this forum, I found out that: wow, these are supersuper normal, rational and logistic people! So...

This is probably going to turn into another one of those threads that ends up naming just about every TV character who has ever been in existence, but whatever: Arthur (King of Queens)- generally annoying, turns a lot of people off, unintentionally rude, involves people in conversations they don't c...

I think AS in general has been extremely trivialized by the media and society. People don't know what a serious disorder it is. I can see that concern, yes, and the danger of it being "the trendy thing to have." However, I'm not so sure that most people don't know what a serious disorder it is, or ...

It seems like he has some consistencies with it. None of us know enough about him to say either way. There has to be some reason why a good looking kid was never able to get a date for 22 years. I don't know if NPD is enough to explain it. I think there must have been some sort of unusual social def...

I wonder if it's just because of the way we act, people perceive us as being younger, and maybe that gets confused with the way we look.

I'm sure you're going to get a lot of people who disagree, but I totally relate. It has caused some serious trauma, anxiety, and depression. I don't want to use those terms lightly, and I've never been diagnosed with those things, but it certainly feels like it. It's almost driven me to suicide so m...
