 Forum: Autism Politics, Activism, and Media Representation   Topic: University of Lincoln apologizes for questionnaire

Just a couple of points:- 1. Without specifying what sort of autism the question is referring to is a dumb provocative questionnaire. 2. Sounds like one of those insidious questions you think is asking a direct question but is really designed to measure something else. Severe disability to the point...

Rigid moral thinking is considered connected to the impaired theory of mind; that is, difficulty with considering other perspectives and seeing things in shades of gray. For example, an autistic person who sees stealing as always bad, will judge the thief without even considering his circumstances,...

Uk is a joke she’s only been in the job for a month

There probably should now be an election but I don’t think Labour are much good either.

I really hope Ukraine won't become a partizan thing in USA. It was bad enough that covid was. Meanwhile, I'd keep my eyes on Kherson. Today, civilians got text messages from Russians, urging them to "evacuate" with buses they provide. I have a very bad feeling about this. My bet: men from...

This study is basically saying that because autistic people generally tend to follow moral rules whether in public or in private, they are too inflexible and therefore not normal. Isn't it better to stick to your morals wherever you are? Right Temporoparietal Junction Underlies Avoidance of Moral T...

I read Aspergers are very smart, is that just knowing stuff or remembering too?


There is no single Aspergers cookie cutter presentation, just as there is none for Autism

Some Aspies are smart others less so compared to NTs.

Those who use stereotypes with ASD will only be proved wrong.

If autism is a neurological condition that cannot be cured what is the point of therapy? Maybe I’m wrong but it’s a fair point I think therapy is more useful for neurotypical people with neurosis like anxiety and depression or some other trauma. It allows them to recover or move on from their sympto...

The IACC was intended to encompass the representation of the entire population disabled by autism to tackle the serious national crisis engulfing our families and communities, but the unbalanced slate of membership of the committee has led to a highly distorted discussions about priorities for feder...

It appears satanists are atheists who believe there is mysterious supernatural powers operating in the universe. So a satanist will say there is no god no devil no commandments from higher up do what you like and f**k everyone else, to put it simply. I should imagine a satanist world would be very u...

UK must be a scary place to live for people on the spectrum. I would hate to get locked up if I had a mental breakdown and had no family aupport. I wonder if you just need a simple diagnosis to be locked up. Not quite locking up all mental health patients. As far as I’m aware it’s those considered ...

The problem is - we don't want to be buffer / neutral / demilitarized zone. Not when we have a neighbour who readily "intervenes". I know USA are not saints but if their trigger-happines can help protect us from an invasion - so be it. It's our interest. Elon is just a dreamer. To make an...

I think what your all referring to is a neutral zone. Countries in the neutral zone don’t belong to a military block and have no foreign military bases on them. Sounds a perfectly sane and good idea but many E European countries have an ancient hatred ( justified ) to Russia and they use the US who ...

I suppose the Ukraine war can be summed up as an idiot trying to fix the problems left by a bigger idiot (yeltsin), using idiotic means
