I also have found that to be the double standard with myself (Aspie) vs. NT's.

If I'm even slightly loud, I get told I'm being obnoxious and to quiet down (even by friends).

If an NT is loud, they will be simply ignored by others around them, and even seen as funny by their friends.

... It seems that every socially undesirable behaviour is given leeway for NT's to be seen as 'cool and hip' but the same behaviour is seen as 'retarded / autistic' when it comes from Aspies.

Reminds me of my school days. I was mercilessly teased being an expert at video games. When the popular kid got into them, he was suddenly became even more cool and his skills were praised. When I directly challenged and beat him, it was treated like it literally never happened. :huh:
