I am different then a lot of you.

I am haunted that in adapting consciously and unconsciously I lost part of myself and that what I think of as learned skills or overcoming is just me fooling myself.

I don't think they are willing to make reasonable accommodations for those with ASD. If not lack of willingness it is lack of understanding because we are in many ways fundamentally different. It does prepare you for the world of work where the systems are set up by NT's for NT's to make money, not...

I could never understand why pornography is so popular, especially among males. I was assigned male at birth and I tried to get into porn to win the approval of peers as a teenager, but I could never get it. And yet, because I'm assigned male at birth I'm supposed to be all up in it. One even annoy...
