And Prussia has existed (as a full kingdom) since 1701. Prussia is a considerable portion of modern Germany. Many German principalities/states have existed since at least medieval times. The Iron Cross, and the Maltese Cross, are German symbols. Not Nazi symbols. Indeed the Maltese cross was...Malt...

But how do you tell if "trying to mimick sexually attractive to males physical traits" isn't a cultural trend as well? How about burkas and niquabs of other cultures? Are they the same or the opposite? And how do you tell if particular traits aren't also considered attractive or not, based...

I'm not sure if you're right about Dengashinobi here but I like the landscape you painted. My position in this landscape: we can afford to spend a lot less human resources on reproduction now, so let's de-genderize big parts of the mainstream culture to ease tensions - and see what happens. That's w...

Great. As an example, if a man wore frills and makeup in 17th century, it meant he was rich, but when he did the same in the 20th century, he was entering highly tabooed regions of cross-dressing. Frills and makeup have nothing to do with reproduction but culture could add gendered meaning to them. ...

I know several autistic people with whom I can have fun.
That's the social skill most important for early dating and I don't think autism diagnosis sets a hard limit on it.
Assertiveness is a social skill important in more advanced stages - and this, too, can be trained.

Nice Guy™ is something very different from a genuinely nice guy.

Assertiveness is welcome in actual nice guys (and nice girls).

Being simultanously exploited and entitled is the trademark of Nice Guy™.

"However, dating a less attractive woman who is plain, overweight, or nerdy, may be a better fit for many men on the spectrum. " I have different problems with this.Basicly you say to settle with women who are worse than you just because of autism. I would never settle for a woman below.I...

@The_Face_of_Boo Okay, then I clarify what I had in mind: There's only 24 hours a day so you need to prioritize. Obsessing about looks while neglecting human contact and mental health tends to lead nowhere. Also, this post had two paragraphs. I think the second one fits exactly within the concept of...

There's a difference between what people call "calling out" - expressing that certain behavior was offensive - and "cancelling" - calling for a large-scale shun. Even the "cancelling" has only as much power as there is support for it. If you find "cancelling" ...

Depends on the touch.
To me, human touch can carry more information than visual body language.

Yes, sudden light touch makes me instantly alert. A problem when living with a huggy family.

Do I act as if gym consumes an entire day of the 24 hours? Yes, based on your previous reactions to this matter, you (and few other members) you did sound that you were assuming it's taking too much time to the extent it is risking to take time from over other stuff like improvements in other areas...

Do I act as if gym consumes an entire day of the 24 hours? Actually, before I twisted my ankle, I went to (climbing) gym twice a week - and once my ankle heals enough to put on climbing shoes again, I'm going back. It's healthy and it's fun. Of course, real rocks would be better but they are unavail...

Cancel culture, also known as call-out culture, is a phrase contemporary to the late 2010s and early 2020s used to refer to a culture in which those who are deemed to have acted or spoken in an unacceptable manner are ostracized, boycotted or shunned.

He is a nutjob and jerk - but short and universally considered handsome, so a good counter-example to the OP assumption.

Well you need to look more into what an autism diagnosis entails. I thought you dislike the approach of "I am disabled, so I will just sit and do nothing about my life" quite strongly? To be clear: I don't find the advice "to hit the gym" wrong, especially if it resulted in impr...
