While this board is meant to unite people who either have or suspects ASD in themselves or in their loved ones, and for many of you it strongly affect the way you identify yourselves, I'm sure there are other things that affect our self-identity, perhaps more important than this. So, while I haven't officially confirmed having ASD and, therefore, don't want it to define who I am, my Jewish identity (and Orthodox lifestyle) is much more clear and much more important to me. At the same time, I acknowledge that, perhaps, since I have some reasons to suspect Asperger's in myself, it could very well be that my way of perceiving the world has indeed a lot in common with you guys. So, it would be interesting to find people I can empathize with with in both departments at the same time. So, if you are Jewish, let's get connected.

???? I find this ( I'm not even Jewish) quite offensive. I have many friends that are Jewish, none of them are "cheap".

I am Jewish and I am accustomed to people saying stuff like this. While growing up, I made NO attempt to "expose" being Jewish to others. As I didn't want to give people another reason to bully me.

I'm proud of being Jewish, frankly.

We have a great, great history--an epic history, really.

So do lots of other ethnic groups.

I think this should go in Politics, Philosophy, and Religion

And such are the origins of discrimination. We're all human beings. No tribe, nationality, race, etc. is more deserving of pride than any other.

I'll add to that my observation that when it comes to religions, humanity would be much better off without them.

I don't disagree. However, we also have a history of being persecuted.

No doubt (obviously). How can we deny that, in view of the Holocaust?

We must never forget....but we must know our positive aspects as well.

as well you should be!

the Jews are demonstrably the most intelligent group of humans on Earth

think of the contributions by von Neumann, Einstein, Witten, Perlmutter, and on and on....the list is soooooooooo long of incredible Jewish minds and their contribution have made the world what it is today!

they literally dominate Science and Maths
