... and how did you find this out? Experimentation and observation -- a.k.a., the Scientific Method -- of course. I'm be very interested to hear some specifics, if you feel comfortable sharing them and have time to do so. For example, what led you to begin your process of "Experimentation and ...

Oh, hell, he's creepy! That hair sniffing and touching children was disturbing! Yes, I’d he tried to sniff my hair I’d slap the pee water out of him. A friend tried to make excuses for him, like,“ He’s an older man, that’s wasn’t a big deal, it’s what they did back then.” Uh, no, just no.It’s not. ...

There's a movement surrounding Medicare For All that's gaining soms traction, but it's having little effect on the Democrats -- not even the so called progressives. Rather than talk to the people holding a rally outside her office, AOC just closed shop for the day. I still believe third-party is th...

This is the first time I saw that! Yeah, it was buried by the press, you could only see it on certain corners of the internet - even then many of these videos started vanishing in the lead up to the election. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6gWpCTAWERA This one looks worse in my opinion - I don't k...

I don't know about ya'll, but I was seriously impressed at how hard Biden and the Dems fought for all the people who face eviction. I have such a warm and fuzzy feeling about them now. Biden and the Dems would have fought a lot harder for them if there were a well-organized mass movement representi...

The problem is the DNC will never allow candidates like Sanders to get the nomination. The system is rigged in favor of the corporate shills like Biden. The corporate donor class runs everything. What's needed is a sufficiently well-organized grassroots mass movement to counterbalance the power of ...

Personally I have a general policy of not accepting social engagements unless they revolve around a specific, clearly-identified purpose, topic, or activity that I am interested in. Good policy. Unfortunately, he knows I'm interested in, what is referred to as, 'dharma talks'. The only reason I did...

I just now ran into this thread on Twitter , in which one person responds to the following question by a parent: When do you think we should tell them? I want to tell my son when the time is right (he's 7) but not sure how much he'd understand yet and don't want to cause him anxiety by telling him h...

That's a very insulting question. I'm autistic. That's different from being a narcissist. I don't see how pushing for autism acceptance can even be close to that.

I don't think the OP's point was to equate autism with narcissism. See other posts in the thread for clarification of various issues.

Hmm, I doubt that it's accurate to refer to the Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) and Jamaat-e-Islami as full-fledged neo-Nazis, although they may have some Nazi-like doctrines. Anyhow, it's nice to see that Bangladesh has a law against bullying autistic people, although I have reservations about o...

Eureka! Just thought up the "Better head out before I pee my pants!" as an escape plan, if necessary - the park probably doesn't have a bathroom (crossing fingers). Btw, any other suggestions...especially if they come in the next hour would be appreciated! Sorry I didn't see this within a...

(I cut and pasted this from a Word document I wouldn't use Word to draft plain text, e.g. the messages here. I would use Windows Notepad (which comes free with the Windows operating system). and the formatting on my outline went to hell. I tried to fix it, did so, hit send and it screwed up the for...

There are people I know who are bad to their kids, bad to their spouses, etc, but then they try to make up for it and try to do the right thing, and try to fix the problem. What exactly are they doing by way of trying to fix the problem? For example, are they seeing a therapist for help with anger ...

Are there any activities (e.g. board games or card games) that everyone in your family (including you) enjoys? If so, perhaps you might want to ask your parents if such games/activities could be played at family gatherings, so that you can feel more included. Many autistic people find games and othe...

The only real hope for the U.S. is a massive grassroots movement behind a third-party. Agreed on the need for a massive grassroots movement, but I don't think a third party is the answer. We just need more a lot more successful elections of progressive Democrats like AOC, in Congress, in state legi...

Really? I don't think I've ever known anyone who "worships" Biden. It's my impression that most moderate and left-leaning people see Biden as just a normal politician, with normal politician flaws, whereas Trump was glaringly unfit for office. Maybe that was too strong of a word, but that...
