Do you feel that self-diagnosed auties and aspies dictate this forum?? No opinion "dictates" this forum And are there pervasive narratives that dominate on this forum? Yes there are NT's are inferior, dumb, only care about their social ranking etc, look down on Autistics etc. "Autism Speaks" obvious...

The only exception (and this is a big one) is that I was able to read social cues, body language and sarcasm. I could read body language okay and I could tell at a glance what somebody was thinking. That was never really an issue for me. I am not a professional psychologist but yeah that is a big o...

Just started CBT for Autistic anxiety. Have had only one session so far so I can’t give you any feedback yet. It is my first psychological therapy in 5 decades. While I have mixed feelings about behavioral therapies I am trying it for several reasons. Adult services are so rare I feel I have to put ...

Stereotyping people that identify as Aspie as Ass-burgers, elitists, fakers, excuse makers apparently is ok here on this “support group” website.

In case you have been very involved in a special interest the last few days the owner of the Los Angeles Clippers basketball team Donald Sterling was caught on video criticizing his girlfriend for being in a picture with former Basketball superstar Magic Johnson. He did not like that she associated ...

With the exception of not being ashamed of being an Aspie-Autistic #4 is a very accurate description of me.

Generally do not like it. Especially from the shoulders to the neck. I have confused and upset a few people with my “inappropriate” reactions to being touched

I think it is both habit and not understanding LFA's/elitism. I try and go by the wording used in the particular thread. If it's about Aspergers I tend to use that language. If I am not sure I use "on the spectrum". Or I use Aspie-Autistic as I am diagnosed as both and the more I look at myself I se...

Unfortunately, most states are right-to-work, which means you can be fired for any reason or none unless you're covered by a union agreem...

This is one of the reasons I believe their is no Autism epidemic. Multitasking also makes it harder for Autistics in the work world these days. While personality has always been important I believe that there is a large group of people with certain levels of severity who would have likely gotten job...
