I guess I feel less need to mask around women, which has (I suspect) made me generally enjoying the company of women more than with men.
Some men seem to regard spending time with women as a gay thing, I kinda don't really get that notion.

If people answer truthfully I suspect that the answers will be hell to analyze/get any meaningful information from. Many questions requests answers like "Sometimes yes, but that depends on if x or y, or even z. Also it depends on your definitions, if you mean X then I may answer no. And so on f...

For me, a special interest is more restricted and not as rational in the restrictions as it may be with a NT interest.

Main problem: Smell. Bad breath, certain foods, bubbblegums, energy drinks... Second: Sound. Some people watch movies or tv on their phones without earplugs. Talking on the phone is normally not a problem. I also get this in reverse as I'm usually making sounds (humming, whistling) and it disturbs m...

Just a couple that comes to mind

Michelangelo by Romain Rolland
We the Drowned by Carsten Jensen
The Dice Man by Luke Rhinehart (George Cockcroft)
Sons and Lovers by DH Lawrence
The Serious Game by Hjalmar Söderberg
Tjärdalen by Sara Lidman (seems for some reason not to be translated)

Never had any problems making eye contact.
Well, I kind of have an issue with sometimes making too much eye contact, it has happened that people accuse me of staring at them. Totally not a conscious thing, I have been thinking recently that it is a way to try to read them, but IDK.

Apart from the sociopathic junk, I have a captains license, my father possibly autistic had a pilot license, captains licence, and a divers license, my uncle autistic for sure has a pilots license.
So it's possible.
But it's part of getting a license to not be a jerk about it.

What's weird to me is that I never in my adult life had this happen to me before I moved to this city. And it started way before I got diagnosed, so I don't believe it's because I've changed my behaviour because of the diagnosis. What's happening is some people don't greet me. Nobody asks me out for...

It seems like you're frustrated about not getting feedback on your posts. Admins/mods cannot do much about that. My guess is that the subjects aren't that interesting/not put in a way to seem interesting. If you want to learn how to make interesting posts/posts people will respond to, I believe it's...

While discrimination do excist, against females, asians, africans, neurodiversity, sexuality etc, I feel that many use it as an excuse for other shortcomings. It may well be that the person wasn't fit for the job, or just didn't click with the interviewer, or something else not at all connected with...

Back in the day, 80ies to be precise, post punk/goth was my bread and butter.
Though goth wasnt a term used, at least not here. We called it "svart-rock" (lit. "Black Rock") since everyone wore black clothes.
