If you have ASD do you have a problem with injustice , deceit , lies etc. Would you get involved with a situation of injustice which had nothing to with you and probably cause you problems in doing so? Is this an ASD trait or just a personality trait.

I think it's common with ASD--that tendency toward black-and-white thinking. Personally, I get really mad whenever I think an autistic or otherwise disabled person is being treated badly, or when I feel the teacher isn't being fair to the class.

I have a big problem with accepting justice issues and with people being deceitful. Many people I work with are deceitful and it drives me crazy. My colleagues just accept it though.

I like things to be open, honest and fair, but the world that the neurotypicals have created for us is anything but :?

Many people are irritated/angry about injustice.

Aspies/autistics tend to take it more to heart.

To me, hearing about injustice is physically exhausting but I sometimes can't stop myself from calling people out especially if it's abuse of any kind. That got me in trouble. I shouted "Hey!" at a mom being very obviously abusive to her daughter (calling her stupid and worthless and slapping her face hard enough to be audible from some distance) and she turned around and screamed the same things at me. I've been abused by a parent, and that sent me back. I saw a very skinny puppy (ribs and hip bones poking out) at the pet store and asked an employee if she knew where the puppies come from. She glared at me and I'm sure she wished she could kick me out.

I have a huge problem with injustice and lies. I also have a problem if I get too involved in someone else's problem. But I can't change. It would be great if all people were honest and respected others. I do tend to tell even strangers these days if they are being over the top with someone else. But if it's happening to me I'm so slow to realise that I just doormat it. I find that society in general doesn't run to my defence. Quite the opposite. But I don't want to be like that myself. Caring about people and justice is definitely part of me. Very little else is.
