And as far as disability/difference goes, the way I look at it is "disabled" means you CAN'T do something. Someone who lost their legs is disabled, cause they can't walk. Someone who is blind in one eye is disabled cause they can't use it. With ASD, you can still do everything an NT can do, though ...

My prediction is if incidents of diagnosed aspies going on killings sprees continues I don't think it would take the form of a Nazi like mass roundups and extermination. The number of individual hate crimes would go up as is what happened to Muslims and people who vaguely looked like them after 9/11...

If it ever was a wannabe diagnosis (which is what the thread is really about) following the elimination or the coming elimination of Aspergers diagnoses, Adam Lanza, the Glasgow study, and Elliot Rodger it sure is not cool now. The question now is will there be overdiagnosis to segregate "undesirabl...

I have only met people I knew to be Aspies in support group settings. Except for one person I have not met anybody I feel is my long lost brother. But compared to gathering with NT's I feel I do not have to always be on guard. I do not know if it is because they are aspies, or the support group set...

I hated Jr High School and high school and first two years of college. There was bullying, I was a C student which was much lower then my potential. The perio...

While the MSM has reported the 20% employment rate before, this is the first time I have seen the proper reasons for it explained. To bad it was published the Friday before Memorial Day weekend when there is low readership. Unfortunately what happened in California is going to more then wipe out wha...

Do u feel that removing the term aspergers is helpful or harmful? It was harmful to me because I got diagnosed last year in my 50's. Nobody knew anything about Aspergers when I was growing up so there was know way to know why I was different. I found an explanation and found out that there were oth...
