I was routinely called “fa***t” throughout my school years. I understand now that it was an attempt by low-self-esteem NTs to pump themselves up by putting me down, making me one of “Them.” (Us vs. Them, the Evil Others) In fact, I grew up believing that homosexuality was a myth, a name kids called ...

“...It does not allow women to know how intellegent you are. Also you are a good looking guy..the pictures do not show your face very clearly...some are tooooooo close...some are shadowed.

"The talk around the water cooler in my office this week was not that Ken Lay had paid a terrible price for his crimes but that he had somehow gotten off easy." Sometimes those NTs just crack me up. The headline is funnier than the article, which is posted here: http://health.yahoo.com/experts/thepr...

In kindergarten we have two rules: 1) No hitting or yelling. 2) If you’re going to hit, yell instead. When my 9-year-old neighbor was 4, we spent a lot of time together while his dad was at work. He would hit, I would yell. ”YOU DON’T HIT ME, IF YOU’RE MAD AT ME, YOU YELL!” I would always apologize ...

It seems that lots of aspies are “too nice.” We seem to fail to develop a sense assertiveness, a sense of boundaries, “this is acceptable, that is not.” And not just aspies but lots of NTs too. One reason for non-assertiveness is a desire to be liked and accepted. Another is guilt. It’s a survival m...

It was my 48th birthday yesterday. My boss gave me a card. The picture shows an old woman with a cane in a wheelchair at her birthday party. The 3 candles on the cake are the numerals 1-0-2. The caption says: “ANYONE WHO ADDS ‘AND MANY MORE’ TO THE BIRTHDAY SONG GETS A CANE UP THEIR BUTT, UNDERSTAND...

Richard- I think the vast majority of AS are open, honest, sincere and accepting, sometimes to a fault, at least when they feel safe. (But not always.) You should be prepared to be likewise. Don’t be ashamed of your ignorance. Be right up front about what you think you know and don’t know. Ask perti...

Hi Blue Bean- I’m pleased to hear you reconsidered. If you really need it, the hospital will always be there. Your employer may or may not be angry about your marks. They may require you to repay some or all of your fees. If you think you can afford it, you might consider a pro-active approach. Take...

1) A big pile of money, not so much because I want things but because I’d like it to become a non-issue. I’d probably end up giving most of it away. 2) A small harem of beautiful young women dedicated to my sexual pleasure. What can I say, I’m a dog. I love the fact that around here we can be proud ...

BlueFireBird- My employer-sponsored counselor has found a psychologist for me who specializes in screening for ASD in adults, and my HMO is going to pay for it! They don’t usually pay for diagnostic tests. Ann- Yes, the cardinals seem to join in, but it could just be my imagination. Raph- “Listen fo...

Hi- My name's Mark and I'm brand spankin' new to all of this. I'm 48 years old but I've only been an aspie for a few weeks now, not even officially diagnosed yet. Definitely a late bloomer. I got divorced a year ago and have been attempting on-line dating for the last couple of months and I'm pretty...
