She's also been extremely annoying, and pestering me, by nagging me, teasing me, and downright bullying. I blocked her on social media. But she still threatens to kill me (and she's a bit of a psychopath, so I'm kinda worried, but this will most likely not happen). I fear that me and her, and this ...

I've been told that my voice sounds odd in various ways and that I speak with a "flat affect." I feel that this doesn't really matter too much because, luckily, I live and work in highly multicultural environments where there are immigrants from all over the world, with lots of different a...

Autistics supporting Autistics, throughout their lifetimes, in community. it is pretty new but it is a thing. I like this idea. Do you know of anyone trying to bring it about in any kind of organized fashion? I like it, too. So far, however, the only solution being offered is “Aspergia” -- an exclu...

Good point, there are people who are needy that often get kicked to the curb because there are people who don't really understand. I seem to see this a lot among people in the mental health community in terms of anxiety, depression, PTSD. You are also right about boundaries However, a situation bec...

I've heard of this before, and I wondered if biocomputers would ever replace electronic computers. In electronic computers, Moore's law is now nearing its end, so I wondered if nanotechnology might eventually be the next way to shrink computers further. Apparently not, according to the O.P.'s linked...

All that said, the truth is computers in general are dumbing down the population. I was talking to my friend's nephew a few weeks back, he was on spring break from college where he's getting a degree in engineering. So I joked: "College, the good times, I miss practicing differential equations...

I understand that binary is useful for memory allocation, logic circuits and so forth. I've never quite appreciated why hexadecimals should be considered useful, though I agree that they're good fun! Hexadecimal is commonly used as an abbreviation for binary. Because 16 is 2 to the 4th power, each ...

I've never found any practical use so far for binary and hex, Some examples: 1) RGB color codes. Every color on your computer screen consists of some combination of red, green, or blue. Each color is specified by three bytes, the first byte indicating the amount of red light, the second byte indica...

Or living with just one's significant other.

I'm often naked, or close to it, on hot days or when doing lots of housework. Vigorous physical activity makes me hot and I am sensitive to heat.

Google "active listening" to find lots of tutorials on how to listen and respond to someone in a supportive way. These days, a lot of "active listening" tutorials emphasize things like eye contact and body language. If those things are too much of a challenge for you, don't worry...

Aspies think differently, unless the environment in which we work is reconstructed from the bottom up, our ability to be productive at neurotypical rates might be limited. A person not able to move their legs is very different from a person who doesn’t even process thoughts & senses in the same...

I remember feeling like this when I was younger, as if I were wearing an invisible veil and unable to take it off. The feeling diminished somewhat in my early-to-mid twenties, when I finally managed to make some long-lasting close friendships. The feeling then diminished more in my early thirties du...

If another website uses RT that is fine as long as the story checks out. And as long as the other website credits its source. What struck my BF and me as very strange was how, during the summer of 2016, Breitbart and other right-wing websites seemed to be plagiarizing RT, carrying RT-derived storie...

I would not conclude categorically that "the left are liars." Political propaganda of ALL stripes should be taken with a grain of salt and fact-checked. Anyhow, this particular news story is very weird. I just now Googled for other sources, such as this Daily Beast story. It appears that &...

An autistic political party does not make sense, for the same reason an LGBT political party does not make sense, nor a political party devoted to any other specific demographic. At least here in the U.S.A., the two main political parties are broad coalitions representing a wide variety of demograph...
