Sharing specific content from WP can also be an important source of news on the Autism Spectrum for people who are not WP members.

My partner gets a good laugh at most of the L&D garbage.

Any emailed links of WP content?

I've sent a few links to a friend on another site.
They used to be a member here and they like to see what's going on.

I link things to my partner when we aren't together, if I want his opinion or input.

My daughter also reads a lot of the content but she's a member.

I share WP content with my partner, children and friends.
My partner will often ask me what the people are up to (meaning folk here on WP).

Tell your partner I'm up to no good, as usual.
And yes, I'm retarded.

I used to share some of the content with my therapist too.

As a joke, right? Still sounds a bit harsh even if it is a joke.

Not very often at all. I've shared a few things her with my wife, but she used to be a member herself (having suspected ASD), and these days I don't do that very often. I just browse the site a bit, contribute to the topics that interest me, which helps me to understand myself and ASD a bit better, and then move on. I might share some of the concepts I've found here with others occasionally, but I don't know many people who have any interest in autism, and even when I do share stuff, I'm unlikely to say more than the general idea, I don't quote chapter and verse or name names, and I think I've only once ever shown anybody an actual page on WP. I tend to see WP as rather a private place, though I know most of it is accessible to the public.

Sometimes I share some thoughts that I get from here in my support group (the one for ND people that mostly has those on the autism spectrum), but other than that, not really.

There have been a few times I've said, "Hey, if you want to learn and understand a bit more about experiencing life while autistic, go have a look at this ..."

I share WP content only after it has been summarized, paraphrased, edited for clarity, and combined with other resources outside the WP community.

I don't share links to embarrass anyone.
When I send links to my friend it's most often PPR topics that they find interesting.
They like a good debate but there aren't similar political debates on other sites.
It makes for good conversation sometimes.


WP and PPR are both public access, anyway.

Well yeah, apart from members only discussion, the whole site is accessible by anyone who likes to google these themes and posts.

Thuse I don't have to share with a partner, and to be pedantic, I don't have a partner.
