I thought this community would be different, more accepting but I guess neurotype has nothing to do with that.


I recall when I was more religious that Matthew Ch 7 verse 5 Jesus once reportedly said How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ while there is still a beam in your own eye?

Translation: Many on WP make generalizations about nuerotypicals without awareness that they i) are making the same narrow minded judgments they attribute to nuerotypicals themselves and ii) they often carry the same generalisations about fellow people on the Autism spectrum, especially those labelled low functioning

There are already terms to describe those people.

Dishonest, untrustworthy, easily-offended, mentally-challenged, irrational, emotional, petty, competitive, unempathetic, shallow, aggressive, intolerant, and deluded, to list just a few. All of this is apparently 'normal', so I'm glad I'm not.

Probably the safest and truest term you can use is "non-autistic". It couldn't possibly offend anyone. And J K Rowling can't sue you for saying it.


I often use that in "non autist" comment sections.

I am guilty as charged, and know that I am doing it. Sometimes, I am a jerk but still intellectually honest, about that.

From NT's, I get paced, parsed, and military-grade chickensh-t. Negotiations and social standing are forever a work in progress, and security is never a given. I don't feel loyal to that, because it's not loyal to me.

Howabout...hmmmm... Neurolamers?

Just say square. People wanted to be unique in the past, now people want to be like each other.

I have not heard “square” used to describe someone out of touch since about 1972 or so. I quess that makes you “square” :D :

Oh the irony....a "square" was a term coined by the jazz community in the 1940s who thought jazz music was the music of the devil

Ironically misused the term. I found it funny sounding verbally but now that I think about it I was looking for mainstream, not old fashioned.

Non-autistic isn't accurate to call a whole entire group of people, because that's like saying "there are only two neurotypes: autism and non-autism". I mean, these days even male and female aren't the only two genders any more, as in forums and applications people demand for a third option.

99% of people are allistic, but 99% of people are not all normal or neurotypical.
