 Forum: General Autism Discussion   Topic: Belonginness to a group, race, gender or age?

I'm more likely to identify with other people based on common interests, rather than race, gender, age and other factors like that. I'm male, but I've never been into traditional gender roles. I don't belong to any religion or political party. I was born in 1981, which is right at the beginning of t...

I'm 41 and I live with my parents. None of us have much money. We pool what we've got.

But if they made a live action movie out of the Simpsons (like theyve done with the Flintstones), and Apu were played by a White dude in brown face then (to me) that would be different. This happened in Star wars with the animated character Ashoka Tano. For some years the voice actor was a petite b...

Does anyone here watch "The Nostalgia Critic" on YouTube? The show started out as basically stand-up insult comedy for bad movies and that was what I enjoyed about it. Now, most of the reviews are mixed-to-positive. Some of the new episodes are interesting and there's still some comedy, bu...

I wouldn’t take anything this management is saying to you as a personal insult. The managers must be judged by only certain jobs being done by the people they manage so they only focus on those job. They don’t care about any other metric. In jobs like those I would never argue or respond. Just do w...

A woman does Bart's voice. Shouldn't that be controversially addressed? That's just funny though, plus women are a minority in animation That's what's interesting about voice acting. If "Simpsons" had been a live-action sitcom, the actors who played Bart and Lisa would have been children ...

This is different than a live-action show or movie where each role is usually cast individually. In that case, if you've got an Indian character you should cast an Indian actor. But Azaria voiced half the town. The idea that one comedian can voice people of various ages and backgrounds and it's tot...

Earlier this year, I was formally written up for my zone not being perfect. One of the main things I got in trouble for was spending too much time in Shoes and not enough in Jewelry and Accessories (I did so because Shoes is the messiest.) In my manager's mind, I had all day to go through my three d...

^ You're right. That's what I had been doing. I guess it was because I finally had the opportunity to focus on one department instead of being pulled all over the place that I slipped up and started to care for a moment. What upset me was how instantly an authority figure materialized to crush that ...

I used to have lofty goals like owning my own animation studio.

Now it's more like:

-- Finish drawing my children's picture book
-- Find a better paying, less stressful job
-- Be able to afford to go to Disneyland when I want to

You might think I meant to write, "Manager angry for at me for NOT cleaning my counter." No. This is the topsy-turvy nature of the store I work at. Management is obsessed with "THE ZONE." (A.k.a., facing the shelves, or straightening up the merchandise.) I agree that it's importa...

I can understand feeling that way. I'm an "essential worker," so I was never locked down. I think I would like working from home, but I have no idea how to get that kind of job. The first few weeks, the store I work at was eerily empty, but there were like a few people who came in and bump...

^ I'm glad to see there are other people with similar feelings. I can't stand the hard sell method and the people doing it seem to be unaware (or don't actually care?) that they're repelling me instead of drawing me in. Likewise, I live in a "Blue" state, so at least when it comes to the p...

And yes totally okay to disagree over :). And I also concur that a person has to want to vote as forcing will just cause disengenuous votes. Thanks :). I see there are extenuating circumstances involved here, so forgive me for being blunt initially. It's just that I can't stand anyone shoving polit...

After the "it hurts my heart" bit he started trying to be friendly again. True, that's the only data I have, but I'm going to expect that indicates a compromise may be in the making, even if merely an "agree to disagree" style compromise. I would have liked that, but unfortunate...
