Hey "rabbits",
I have been looking at a lot of videos on a channel called DontTrustTheRabbit, which is mostly about the Germans and their language. But I have found clues that she is on the spectrum, but not diagnosed. See these videos:



I decided to bring this channel to the attention of the Wrong Planet community. Actually, she even looks like Rudy Simone.

Could be.

I have stumbled upon her on U Tube before. Thought that she seemed a bit autistic. But I put that down to her being German. All Germans come off as a bit autistic. Lol! But here she complains about how she has a particular autistic type trait that even other Germans are put off by. So maybe.

"All Germans come off as a bit autistic." I do wonder if this relies on stereotypes of both the German people and the autistic community.

I did include "lol" which shows I was joking a little bit. And, as comedian Steve Allen wrote, "the world of jokes is the world of stereotypes".

Since I am both of German descent and am an aspie I can make fun of both groups. German, and Dutch, folks I have meet tend to be kinda stiff and emotionally non demonstrative.

I know another Trixie-----Trixie Norton from the Honeymooners.

Do you think she's autistic?

See her first video in English, about speaking it at work, shortly after 5:27 she says something about struggling to find the right words to sound prefect (or "perfect") and that this was already a problem in German, her first language. If language were thought, this would never be a problem in the language in which one is thinking.

She has made a new video with more clues that she is indeed on the spectrum:


And shortly after 2:00 she does mention a stim.

Yeah. No joking that that she seems to be talking about her own aspergers/autism, whether she is aware that has it, or not.

I'm of German ancestry, and definitely have a strong liking for facts and information. I guess that could be considered an ASD trait.

I have noticed that a lot of those videos of language tutorials seem to be hosted by people who have similar voices of the kind you describe. I was investigating a learn Russian language tutorial and the woman sounded very similar.

Some of her videos are in German, but the early ones, before her first video in English, are still without English subtitles, but you can add them. Try this.

She seems to have Asperger's but isn't really far on the spectrum. I like her eyes and the lively way that she is.

She seems mildly autistic to me. She also seems very German as well.
