Well that's true of everyone. The more I think of my best friends this way the more I realize they're probably more similar to me than I ever knew. That's my best guess, I think we've all been keeping to ourselves this year.

Yes, we can't let our lives depend upon anyone else's acceptance.

They don't have to like us. And when necessary, I have let people know this.

Wired Differently is not the meanest sort of thing to say, but I still would always be careful not to endorse it.

I've been told I'm the most wired person another techie friend knows. I don't know if there's any way around this fact when the different wires are real physical objects we must arrange.

People are more able to relax and be flexible when they are not being judged or labeled.

Otherwise, other people's reactions, are their problems.

I certainly don't really associate with anyone who's wired 'normally' - they're either baffling or terrifying.

The few people I can honestly communicate with are all quite eccentric.

Every time you or I endorse the concepts of Autism, Asperger's, or Neurological Difference, we are further marginalizing ourselves, and we are encouraging child abuse.

Right now, there are parents driving their child to the doctor, simply because they find the child to be an embarrassment. And these are children whom the parents did not need to have, they merely did so hoping that they would be able to give themselves an unstigmatized adult identity.

I'm actually amused by the term, to be honest. I'm not trying to take away the fact that autism is a serious condition for a lot of people, but sometimes we just need to laugh at ourselves and try not to take such an us-versus-them approach to the world. That's just my two cents, though.
