I give up describing it for people who cant even scratch the surface of comprehending what it is. Its dangerous to try since people judge... But I realize its necessary to give them some hints for "not being burned as a witch" (glad Im not born earlier) and therefore I think your proposal of a cognitive difference could be ok.

I wish people would scrub out of their minds everything they think they know about autism. Then, we can start all over.

I wish people knew that not all aspies are the same..
like you gotta have this, this and that to be have asperger's.. they always vision themselves a stereotype aspie that doesn't even come close to the real deal, i think it must be really tough to get the whole picture if you aren't drawn in the picture.
