Agree. The kid may have just been into his flag, or into the president. But the mom should not have let them both go out with political stuff on display. Some kids are into toy guns, but you wouldn’t take their toy gun out in public with you. And I say this as a person who purposefully wore offensiv...

One could call the United States the most autistic world power. Here is why: Autistics and Americans are both known for their individuality. Groupthink can be useful and powerful yes, but any group needs outlier minds to stay efficient and effective.

This is a good point. The confederacy was an attempt to break off from the United States, so they were, in fact, traitors. I am in an area where confederate flags have historically had substantial support. We even have self proclaimed Black Rednecks who passionately defend their small and strange su...

The Uranium One deal happened. 25% of US uranium mining rights to Russian companies (or a single company, I don’t remember). These big state officials will travel around and do speeches that they get paid for. Some people noticed that a speech would tend to happen after a policy or deal like that wa...

Lol, I should have seen this thread before the DC one.

There has been a surprising increase in violence in my city too.

We have had a surprising uptick in what appears to be gang-related shootings in my progressive, usually peaceful SW VA area. They appear to be doing mostly corona-friendly drive bys, however, and only shooting each other. The police are always a step behind them so no one is ever caught. Has anyone ...

Some Antifa chapters also have shooting clubs. The second amendment is pretty important to Americans no matter what social group. In fact, the ACLU is stepping up to defend the NRA in this case. https://www.aclu.org/blog/free-speech/new-york-state-cant-be-allowed-stifle-nras-political-speech They ri...

Non-fiction really does differ from fiction. I would guess most people read non-fiction much slower. When I was a teenager it would take me an evening to read 300 pages of fiction. These days I pretty much never finish books because I’m constantly distracted doing mom and wife stuff. The only fictio...

Agree it is just her age. You could ask another person who is around her frequently (parents, sibling) to make you a list of things they think bother her and then of things that seem to make her comfortable. You could change your behavior for a few days to see if it helps, and if it does you could t...

Could you do something like a presentation to them to argue your points? Sometimes parents still see their adult children as children, and they need help to understand your thinking as an adult.

Please keep in mind that the ADOS is not an exact science. It is observational, and often performed at an age where the child cannot explain him/herself. They seem to score more toward positive. There is a practical reason for this. Therapies and accommodations cannot be justified unless there is a...

Are you looking to publish when you are done? Or at least let people here read what you’ve written? Your topic is interesting, since some south Asian countries do not have much of a recognition of autism, so there would be less cultural awareness. But south Asians living in western countries would h...

People need to get back to other interests. I was similarly annoyed when sociology terms started leaking into the mainstream. People are now always saying incorrect, ignorant things about concepts that regular people should not have even heard of. I can’t tell you how many times I have heard the ter...

It is honestly hard to find platform explaining speeches for either of them now. There are too many edited clips to wade through. And they both do “old man speaking”, with lots of stutters, misspeaks, and trailing sentences that go nowhere. If you want to try again with Biden, you may be able to fin...

I used to go to work dressed subtly as a character and then make my employees guess who I was being.

Han Solo and Rodney Dangerfield were my favorites.
