Flock of Birds, a pod of whales, a herd of gazelles, a shoal of fish, why not a name for a group of Aspies?


A paradox of Aspies


I help run a social group for people with AS and autism, and it occurred to me that we didn't have a term for a group of Aspies. Any other proposals?

Or: A faculty of Aspies?

Because we have different areas of expertise, much like the professors in a university faculty.

a 'Flotilla of Aspies'? 'cause we tend to float about outside of the worlds system a bit?

I like that one. Having been on a faculty at a university, I see some parallels. Not all good, but pretty accurate.

Which Throne is that AFTL? Not king of the last to post-ers? LOL.
