I've been accused of looking angry, sad, or annoyed too... Apparently it's called "Bitchy Resting Face. " :)

This seems to get me into trouble with my husband a lot. Strangely enough, I have no problem regulating my tone of voice when I am reading out loud. For some reason, written text provides context for me, and I am able to read texts I have never seen before with proper rhythm and emphasis. Just talki...

This is so rambling and incoherent... You attempted to make a central point in the beginning, then followed with unrelated opinions (most certainly not irrefutable evidence), then concocted some random anecdote that is supposed to prove... What? Sorry, but you seem to be rather confused... By the wa...

It occurs to me that what we're discussing might be a secondary category of the usual Autism Spectrum diagnostic criteria that hasn't been split off yet. I've been in groups of aspies who could hold up roundtable discussions or Socratic seminars for hours, but in every sense of the term, I still no...

While everyone is entitled to her own opinions, please get a firm grip on how science and disease work before attempting to explain them. Your arguments are fraught with both logical and factual errors.

I imagine it has something to do with your gender to begin with. I'm female, and I was picked on mostly by females. The few friends I had were either boys or other weird females. There were a few boys who picked on me, too. I would doubt it these days with the creep-shaming going on and the false s...

But this isn't about the lips themselves. The term "upper lip" usually means the area between the top lip and the nose. People talk, for example, about how much of an "upper lip" a guy has affecting how much of a moustache he can grow. Good point. OP, do you mean the skin-colored portion (where the...

Also wanted to mention that this is probably a false thought...the vaulted Aspie honesty factor. ;)

I think you look androgynous. At first glance, you look more towards the feminine side. Upon closer inspection, you look more towards the masculine side. Either way, it wouldn't matter to me whether or not you are using the same restroom as I am. The gender you feel is more important than the genita...

I think the point the OP is making is that the "real voices" of autism are less prominent than the views of doctors and nonautistics both. I'm assuming that the OP is lamenting that fact and annoyed that it perpetuates an inauthentic view of autistics. Correct me if I'm wrong, OP.

Quintex, your experience sounds awful, and it's interesting to hear the views of someone who is happy to NOT have a diagnosis. Thanks for sharing.

While I imagine that your observations are coincidental, I too have a very thin upper lip.

I think also that people consider it a fad diagnosis, which in their minds means it's not real. The whole "It's so overdiagnosed" idea. If it's over diagnosed, then obviously anyone who claims to have it must not really have it. Obviously. :roll:
