>tfw a narrow but significant majority of gay or bi men you know are severely Asperger's or autistic
What makes this happen? Why is autism so common among lgbt?
socially awkward or autistic gay guys are a pretty major phenom. i make a point of not being 'out' about being bi around this one gay guy i know who is autistic, to the point i think of him as autistic more than gay. he never showers or bathes, has greasy hair, walks with a hunch and won't shut up about his pokemon. really awkward, cringey guy. if he found out i liked guys at all he would be an autistic rape goblin i'm sure.
I'm a cis-het Aspie who makes a living caring for more severely developmentally-disabled adults, and this is the first time I've heard anybody suggest a link between non-hetero sexual orientations and ASD. (I got called "faggot" a lot growing up, but that was just because I was awkward.) I also volunteer with PFLAG, and I haven't really noticed any significant overlap between the gays and the autistics I know. Sure, a lot of my PFLAG associates tend towards the nerdy, but nerdy =/= autistic.
TAKE THAT BACK YOU FUCKIN' SHITHEAD. I mean i was outed by a friend of mine. You know the horror? I nearly killed myself, drank till i passed out in the snow, nearly freezing to death.
He outed me by posting "i am gay" on my fagbook while i was still logged in... still have to cope with it till this day
