I have been hearing constant mentioning of the supposed fact that many of these extremists liberals (whom may call Social Justice Warriors or 'SJW' for short) are loud and abnoxious minority who are self entitled to the point of bullying the media to submission.

The "small minority" part intrigues me, especially considering the SJW's black-and-white way of thinking when it comes to taking critism; a behavoir often asociated with asperger syndrome.

Here are a few famous examples:








How is autism invovled with the with the Social Justice Warrior phenomenon? Is it the reason why they are ridiculed the way they are? Or are these individuals just neurotypical people with a bad mentality?

I know it's a common joke they have autism. I know self diagnosis is rampant. I think it is more of a lack of exposure to other ideas. I also think many if them deeply care about people. I personally disagree with how they could it though.

I am not saying all act this way, but many of the ones I see that I dislike have an inability to listen to other people. I know this song limited to SJW. I am mainly Tallinn about people like Steve Shives.

He is a pretty famous YouTube SJW. He is most famous for blocking thousands of people he has never talked to.

Really? NTs are all about being social. "Social" justice = "social" peer pressure.
So they'll say idiotic things to get people to applaud them for allegedly "caring" about an issue
and they'll mindlessly sign petitions without having the slightest clue what they're signing,
because an authority figure acts like it's a good thing, and "everybody else" is doing it.

Is he the one who has videos titled, "Five Stupid Things About (fill in the blank)"? If it's the person I'm thinking of, he doesn't seem to me to be an SJW at all. Misguided sometimes for sure, but not that extreme.

No, these people are just insane, and need to be sent to a lunatic asylum. I have Asperger's Syndrome, and I would NEVER behave like this. Ever! Why? Because it is wrong, and I have a highly developed moral and ethical sense. These people were obviously never told "No" by either of their parents, or spanked hard enough when they were young. They are spoiled, rotten rich kids with too much time on their hands.

I have been surrounded by lots of autistic people my whole life. I don't recall ever coming across any who were like that. Maybe there's been one here and there who escaped my notice, but most are not like that that I know of.

If being loud, brash and obnoxious are indicative of AS, the condition is considerably under-diagnosed.

That is to say: no.
