you, or who? :?

In any case, I remember hearing that a huge percentage (60, even?) of the transgender community is on the autism spectrum. So imagine a larger proportion of people than expected on the spectrum are gay.

most of the time i maintain a tenuous equilibrium between pejorism and meliorism. seriously, i am what i am but i am reluctant to use that particular word. the late rock hudson had a wonderful euphenism- he would watch certain men and discern that some of them were "musical."

was there a question?

I assume it was something about, "if I'm an aspie, how could I be gay?"

Doesn't everyone know; everything is caused by aspergers?

There are plenty of autistics on this website who identify as LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender). Just browse through our LGBT forum (http://www.wrongplanet.net/forum36.html) and see for yourself. :wink:

Well at least you had the guts to say it, but I don't think your the only gay aspie around, they are others too (but I'm not though, sorry).
