One of my favorite vocalists of all time singing in one of my favorite bands of all time :D

Based on this article and/or anything else some of you may know about Sandoval....do you think she has AS or a related disorder?



http://hopesandoval.com/press/telegraph111001.shtml


NLD?....PDD-NOS?........perhaps Schizoid PD? Maybe her personality is just an act based on her looks, the music she creates and how the capitalist twits in the music industry told her to behave?



Or maybe just severe and chronic anxiety, dysthymia, or "depressive personality disorder"?


Or maybe she's just has Hope Sandoval "disorder"? :wink:



In any case...this ignoramous Craig Mclean who wrote this article is a prime example of why so many neurotypicals make me want to vomit. :x



What a conscending and ill-informed jerk!! ! I suppose Sandoval may not think so however since the article is on her official website :?

Honestly, she just seems shy and overwhelmed that people like her. Her mental health is none of your business.

Ummm....I never said it was "any of my business."



Can't a person be merely curious about others anymore or is that yet another thought crime in phony liberal and con-servative politically correct America now? :roll:


As a Libertarian SOCIALIST....i'm far more to the "left" than most of the so-called "progressives"/"liberals"/"leftists"/"socialists" in this country.

Therefore...I would be remiss if I EVER made Hope Sandoval's (or anyone else's) mental health "my business".


So sorry there Daria....last time I checked....I WAS permitted to be curious about other humans as they perfectly within their rights to be curious about me.

No reason to get snappy about it.....jeez!! ! :?

I don't care about your political leanings or lack thereof. How would you like it if a stranger on the Internet started speculating about whether or not you have a mental condition? That's what you're doing to this woman.

I wouldn't care.....just like I don't care when strangers do so offline. People having been doing this "is so and so an Aspie?" thing for a long time here on WP. You've been a member for quite sometime and I don't recall you harping on anyone else about this.

Perhaps you're just looking for any excuse...any molehill you can turn into a mountain.....to stir up drama? If so.....I kindly suggest you find yourself another poster to squawk at over some preposterous non-issue.

I for one will no longer dignify any of your silly and petty remarks in regards to all this by responding to them. :roll:

I'm in love with Hope Sandoval a good 20 years now, I know most of her lyrics, which allude to AS, and found a forum where states she has AS.

Furthermore....the poster in question is sort of implyimg that something is WRONG with being a non-neurotypical and we ought to refrain from speculating that certain people may possess that *gasp!! !* unthinkable quality.


A quality "nice", "successful", "intelligent", "respectable", "law-abiding", "normal", "mentally healthy", etc.....people like Donald Trump, George W. Bush, Dick Nixon, Pat Robertson, etc.....surely don't possess.

Not to mention other superior neurotypicals like Adolph Hitler, Osama Bin Laden, Saddam Hussein, Joe Stalin, Ted Bundy, etc....ad infinitum.

:roll:


Mental illness/non-neurotypicality might just be a biologically/environmentally-instilled badge of honor compared to many supposedly non-mentally ill/neurotypical people in history....both famous (infamous more precisely) and otherwise.

I'm not implying that there's anything wrong with being non-NT or trying to stir up drama. I'm just pointing out that it's kind of tasteless to armchair-diagnose someone you've never met.

And furthermore, I've pointed out in other threads that it's not a good idea to diagnose someone you've never met. I'm not singling you out.

Hey Horus,
Some of us autistics are NOT as sensitive as others. I wondered this as well about Hope Sandaval. Her voice is phenomenal. Susan Boyle has aspurgers. Angelic. I did not make it to the aspurgers rung. Autism intellectual deficits and autism comes with problems. My sometimes toxic positivity therapist mistakenly thought I would throw a celebration party when I was diagnosed at 53 by neuro psychologist after family report records ect??? I needed the diagnosis to learn how to manage "the monster." Newbie therapist found out why it is not always a celebration over time. She helped a lot with services but managing this beast was beyond what she could offer in the end. Autism isn't pleasant.
Autism is a blessing and a curse. Who ever is so sensitive views it strictly as a curse maybe?
Hope mentioned she rode the short bus to school. Aspurgers doesn't have intellectual impairments...I rode a short bus to school 12 or less students attended until 9th grade public highschool disaster struck with zero friends for 4 yrs. Bullies here at wrong planet are a problem. Self hate and wondering why they don't have a life or attacking makes them feel strong not weak?
Obviously if there are problems in Hope's life, its up to Hope to wonder herself and get a diagnosis or not of course.
