As a female NT you feel the need to dye your hair, even if your hair is already a nice colour


Was going to say that's just the straights, femmes and the right wingers but have you seen some of these 'SJWs'? Blue hair everywhere!

My mum only decided to like her hair now because she's 51 and it's still naturally brown. Bleached it all her life.

Also - as a female (especially but sometimes males too), you're a normal, perfectly healthy weight and feel the need to go on a diet.

I've heard both names but don't know either, what does that make me???

It makes you a lower risk for NT syndrome. :wink:

You don't mind being late, or causing other people to be late for appointments.

You think "Everyone is a little autistic".

You think the best "cure for autism" is to be more sociable and ignore it.

If you're British, you think that kid off EastEnders is a better representation of autism than Roy Cropper.

(could also be true if your autism is severe I guess or if you have severely autistic kids - my autism is like Roy's personality though and it's semi canon that he's aspie)

... you sincerely believe that every autistic person is exactly like the only autistic person you have ever met.

I have to have my hair colored once every six weeks or so or I start looking like I have "calico/tortoiseshell cat hair." (Brown, blonde and gray). I would also go from looking like a little girl to looking like a little old lady. (I'm 54 and don't fit either category in terms of age group.)

You think everyone not exactly like you is flawed and just needs to work harder at it.

The point is that not that you have to know who Denis Istomin is to be autistic but that you have a special interest in Istomin a relatively obscure tennis player instead of Kim Kardashian a well known celebrity who is famous primarily because she is a celebrity. The admiration and obsession of the Kardashian family is mainly about their social lives, their being top of the social hierarchy.

You get rewarded when you choose to act quirky rather than it being analysed as a medical thing.

... you do not make other people uncomfortable by just existing.

... you do not need help communicating.

... you do not require a comfort animal or object.

... you feel safe in spaces where drugs and/or alcohol are being consumed.

dating is not confusing and you are not at risk of being taken advantage of for being too trusting

...you have never been accused of not trying hard enough or not caring when in actuality, you were trying your hardest, and if you were, you would be perfectly capable of defending yourself (instead of becoming so upset that you can't speak no matter how hard you try).
