Attacking NT's as a group is attacking all the good to great family members, friends, colleagues I have had the pleasure to interact with over the years.

The theory has gotten a lot of media attention in the last few months since Autism Speaks got heavily involved in funding research on the topic. A known cause of gut issues is stress. Being a small minority trying to live in a neurotypical world is damm stressful. Is research that is picking up gut ...

I think that Asperger's is NEITHER a curse or a blessing.....it has both advantages and disadvantages
I guess it's just a matter of people's perspective, if it benefits them more...then it's a blessing...but if isn't....then it's a curse

As has been pointed out Spree killing is mostly an American male thing that has spread to other parts of the world. American males in general have not and won't be discriminated against because it is impractical for several reasons "Odd, Weird" AS people will be, so it is important that the most ne...

NBC Nightly News mentioned a family spokesperson said he had a form of autism but did not mention anything about the denial. It is not an either or situation, we as a society should do both. It is not a denial reaction, it is a fear reaction based on experience. If Aspergers starts getting mentione...

I don't think, I know we have social reciprocity deficits. Our conversations tend to be exchanges of information, once the information is received or we figure it is not going to be received we just move on. We also tend to like categories and you may not get an online hug or an expression of sympat...

A bank is supposed to be quiet right? When I walk into Santander bank it is always "hard sell" with some sort of credit card or plan or account pushed on me. They call and bother me at home every day with this stuff. I called to "opt out" and it is going to be a 30 day wait until they stop (I have m...

Now that the whys of the bad decisions are explained there is pride of what was accomplished with moderately severe Aspergers ^ This, for me, is a very uplifting message. Sometimes, I berate myself for what I have been unable to do. Rather than take price in what I have been able to do. Thank you. ...

Finding out not only how different I am but how pervasively I am different is the biggest thing. Finding out that when Lady Gaga sang "Born This Way" she was singing about me. I always know I was very different and had come to a large degree of acceptance of it in my 20's. That accepting helped me g...

It pains me to read the "I hate myself", "I hate my autism", "I want to be cured" type posts. But to banish that type of post would be hypocritical. A lot of us say we loathe Autism Speaks not only for their pro-cure stance but that Autistic opinions are not heard. The "I hate myself""I want cured t...
