Hey /soc/ I tried this once before but how about a contact thread for anyone with autism or Asperger.
Whatever you want but I guess I'll try and start it off with my info in the next post.

>Pretty obsessed with 40k and american politics. I try to play videogames but I depression makes it difficult to stick with it, combined with almost an OCD when it comes to getting 100% of everything makes it pretty difficult to finish a lot of things.
I don't really care who replies or adds me but if you do add me just tell me where you got my info
4chan autism isn't the same as actual autism. I'm not even sure why its used as an insult on here. Most of the people I've known who were autists or aspies were quite intelligent, if a little reserved
Calling us people with autism instead of autistic people. They're trying to separate autism from me. Autism isn't just something you can understand away. We're fucking different, I feel like I'm on a foreign planet.
It's a PC attempt to separate the person from the autism. Except Autism is a core attribute of an autistic person.
I am different because I am autistic, I will never be similar to NTs. there is no fucking reason to pretend I am just a regular person who happens to behave differently.
I behave differently because my brain works in a completely different way.
The people who push the "with autism" garbage are parents of autistic kids who really wish they just had a normal child.
Well guess what, they can fuck off. We're fucking different and changing the retarded language of how you call what I am will not change that.
I'm actually glad to see a thread like this. My daughter was recently diagnosed as being High Functioning. She's only 5 yrs old, and as a parent I'm curious to learn more about how life would be for her as she gets older. If anyone is serious about answering some general questions and just all around helping me understand her better, it would be appreciated since she is severely delayed in speech.
just thought it'd be interesting to hear more about it from someone who lives it everyday. She's already going through all of her services and everything. Just random things like how was school and just everyday life as you grew up.
the idea that you can say "dont say that word it hurts me!" and solve the problem that caused that word to be hurtful is a lie. Look how well that ideaology worked for niggers? Not at all.
The real way to deal with labels that offend is to say "yeah, that word describes me, but I'm a good person, so in the way that word fits my personality, it's a good word". Look at words like nerd or geek, those used to be bad, but nerds and geeks self-identified as it, and now its largely a term of endearment
