Umm, last I checked, one girl ≠ all, or even most, girls.

For the record, I detested them thoroughly.

Blanket statements/assumptions are one of the most irritating things on this planet.

Why are aspie kids obsessed with Home Alone? I was obsessed with it when I was 8. Then I knew a little boy who was also obsessed with the movies which was my old aspie mate. Then I heard in the Roger Meyers group by one of the other members who works in special ed and one of her aspie students was also obsessed with it.

I have never seen any aspie girls obsessed with The Powerpuff Girls. I think it's coincidental just like Home Alone was. The girls fight crime so I am sure aspie girls wish they could do that with their bullies. Kevin was the reject of his family and an outcast and always getting into trouble thanks to his oldest brother and aspies can also relate to that when it comes to their peers and bullies and I am sure they would love to set those awesome traps for them. That could be why? :wink:

And of course she says I’m normal and says the only thing I had as a child was language. Huh? I must have been a shitty person then and maybe a difficult child I was who had to be labeled because of incompetent school staff and mean kids who didn’t accept differences and because I was trying to be “normal.” :/

Everyone with AS is different.

Last I remember I didn't like either Home alone or the powerpuff girls. In fact I couldn't stand the powerpuff girls. Though I think it was because the artwork of the cartoon network shows annoyed me alot.

Interesting you say that. I was also obsessed with them as a child and I still like the show.

But my perfectly normal sister also obsessed over them as a kid.

I think it's a normal girl thing and not Asperger's.

I enjoyed watching the Powerpuff Girls with my family when I was a child. I always identified with Bubbles because I'm blonde-haired and blue-eyed, I like "cute" things and I cry a lot (or at least I used to). The Powerpuff Girls never developed into a special interest for me, but I did incorporate some of the elements of the show into my imagination at the time.

By the way, did you know that the Japanese developed a Powerpuff Girls anime? It's called Powerpuff Girls Z. Look it up, I'm serious.

I was never interested in the PowerPuff girls.
