Yeah, the technical term is the Amygdala. Self-knowledge is a LOT easier with a bit of anatomy.

You're very intelligent. :)

Yes, mine is also pre-verbal, but it can make the rest swear a lot.

Do you think men aspies and women aspies have different issues from each other?

I think that men and women have different issues anyway. AS not only manifests differently in men and women, their basic differences and position in society give rise to different coping mechanisms.

This is likely partially true, but if you were to Venn diagram the issues you'd see heavy overlap. The impact and severity of issues will likely be weighted differently though. We're different, but we're still the same species suffering the same ailment.

Does anybody believe that both having any neurological challenges and being in the male gender role make it a moderate or large obstacle to the opposite sex? Even though I believe neuro-atypicals aren't limited and could do anything a "normal" person can do, there are still a significant group of ND guys who struggle a lot with that. Even many NT guys say they struggle too. For men it's still the norm to be independent and living on your own once you get into your 20s and many NDs still struggle with that.

I was raised and schooled in the skills of the Samurai, something that carried over to my career from which I am retired. So I would agree with the warrior tag. As for independent living and being on my own. I don't mind being alone as a matter a fact I prefer it.

being in the "uncanny valley" and creeping them out. a long-ago shrink told me that i would have to learn how to convincingly ape NT behavior in order to change this.

I've made lots of threads in L&D in the pasts about mine & other autistics guys struggles with relationships. I do think it's generally easier for autistic women to get dates than autistic guys. There's been a lot more autistic guys complaining about being single in the L&D section than autistic women. However I do think autistic women tend to be more likely to end up in abusive relationships or relationships where they're just used for sex. There are also LOTS of exceptions to these things.

Yeah, I know. I wish the men and women hear just swapped genders for a time and walk through life in the "other" shoes.

It's sad too because other posters accuse the guys of having malevolence to the opposite gender or subscribing to some kind of thought pattern related to that. That is just a knee jerk. Both genders suffer issues, but they are mostly different set than the other. I don't like the attitude about it lately.
