It seems that so many spectrum want to cling to the belief that autism is all or mostly inherited. When the fact is this hasn't been demonstrated and isn't universally accepted among experts. I don't know why so many on the spectrum can't accept that environmental factors may play a very large if no...

Question, for those of you on the spectrum, who have had children on the spectrum.

I know adverse reactions to odd stimming behaviour or talking to oneself are "normal" but I can't help but be angry that we should have to accept the stares and disturbed expressions just for being ourselves.

I was wondering - how many of you allow yourselves to be yourselves (Aspie and all) in public and how many of you only allow yourselves to be Aspie when you're at home or alone. How does your Aspieness present itself and why don't you allow yourselves to just act naturally while you're out? Who sti...
