I do think some of it is internalized prejudice/ableism. I also think some of it is legitimate fear of their real problems being marginalized or dismissed due the "socially awkward nerd" stereotype from widespread overdiagnosis.

Not saying all of it. But a disorder is a disorder. People get so caught up in their beliefs ASD is bad they ...

Maybe you should ask the moderators to delete the thread because

1. People will see your name if they link to the article
2. It is a trigger for you

I am sorry that this is happening. If you have not done so already seek help because life should not be over at age 23.

I don't think I know enough to comment on this particular case. In general Aspergers is an explanation not an excuse. I am not in favor of the attempts to make Aspergers a legitimate reason for an insanity defense. We think differently. As with NT's if thinking differently means you think criminally...
