Whoever said I'm an NT? I may not be aspie but I sure as hell am not an NT. People on this site make everyone here look bad. You guys don't think people can read what you post or what? 90% of you people talk about NT's like they are the devil. When in reality they serve your food, cure your illnesseses, etc...


I've noticed this too but I think it is similar to when women talk about how horrible men are when they have a husband or boyfriend and clearly don't hate men in reality.

If you look most serious posturing comes from a relatively small number of posters who are very vocal. Most people I'm sure are very aware that they are dependant on NT society to support them.

#1 Flaw in Mindovermatter: He thinks his experience is the only one autistic people are capable of, and we all must be flawed in the exact same way he is.

Totally.
Personally, I think that when NTs treat Aspies(GENERALLY) like complete crap, we're obviously going to despise them.
That's how it works for me anyway, IDK about everyone else.

I just finished reading a book by Ben Nugent called American Nerd (that deserves its own thread, if there isn't one already). He talks about how when he was a kid he was really bad at sports, so he became a nerd, the D&D type. And he decided that nerds were smarter than jocks - an attitude the jocks understandably didn't like. I think it's a common defense mechanism.

But what I've seen here in the almost a year that I've been here is that most autistic people are "NT" when it comes to intelligence and personality. So odds are whatever you're saying about them, they're probably saying about you, too. It's just talk.

I think this thread shows just how varied points of view can really be. I think the title starts to confuse the message and then we all start to wonder what the purpose of your message was. I would really like to know where on the dart board you were aiming at.

I am still confused to the point of this thread.

We aren't "flawed".
Flaw is a a soul destroying way to look at things.

No one is perfect, but must good people be "flawed"? Why not imperfect?

I don't think this at all.
