There is also a trend online which says that socially awkward white male geeks have it easy, and because of this, there is no shame in humiliating them, even harassing them . Those people cite Bill Gates as an example, but Gates had excellent marketing skills. An example of this shaming tactic is a...

Based on your description, what you currently do is a form of masking, but is NOT the really heavy-duty, really exhausting kind of masking that many autistic people do. The latter -- which is so notoriously bad for autistic people's mental health -- involves things like: - Forcing oneself to be soci...

I use the term "neurodivergent" and my understanding of it is it really only is supposed to encompass things like ASD, ADHD, learning disorders, etc. that are present from birth/early childhood, and have a strong neurological and/or behavioural impact on someone. Terms that encompasses al...

There's a misconception men have that women prefer jerks over good guys. There's a thing called lovebombing: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Love_bombing . This is when a manipulative person is initially nice and extremely nice to their partner as an act to build their trust, but then they change and...

I consider message board forums (like Wrong Planet) to be a lot friendlier than social media like Twitter. Even so, misunderstandings can happen on message boards too. Here on Wrong Planet, if you want to avoid the kinds of discussions likely to get heated, I would suggest avoiding the "News an...

First off, one of the better choices for advocacy would be Disability Rights New York: https://www.drny.org/ I just now looked at their website. They don't appear to be an activist group or a lobbying group, but rather a charity (largely government-funded) that provides various legal services and b...

The economy of both US and UK/Europe is on the long term decline, (it’s hardly disputed anymore). Those most vulnerable and in need of gov services and help will end up being effected the most by this fact going forward. Hmm, I actually don't agree with this. Depends how "long term" is &q...

Do virgins have to settle for a gf they are embarassed by at all? Like once a guy gets experience with escorts, can they go back into the dating world after, and then this will help women not smell virgin on them, after? Pretty much. Once that escort took my virginity---well, after I saw 3 or 4 esc...

Oh okay, so you are saying the women will detect it either way likely? It sounds like a "yes": women will be able to detect a male virgin from a mile away. Which means one thing and one thing only: if you're a male virgin, you don't have any options except hiring an escort or settling for...

Is she already your girlfriend or just a crush? The above posters are assuming you two in relationship but I see nothing in your post indicates so. I was not assuming that the two of them were in a relationship yet. My impression was that they were still in the early phases of getting to know each ...

I guess overall I'm feeling lost and unsure of what to do to get myself on track. Does either the school or the department provide tutoring? Also: Are you working full-time in addition to attending school? Are you attending school full-time or part-time? I sure hope you're not doing BOTH full-time....

To prove an alleged "Real-Life" situation I suspect a misunderstanding here. Questions: 1) To Fnord: Did you interpret KingOfSpades's post as a claim that these various places are actual, literal "gateways to Hell"? (If not, then what "alleged 'Real-Life' situation" do...

There kind of decisions are usually for financial cost cutting reasons and happen in the UK NHS all the time, hospitals close or treatment services get moved so elderly people have to travel miles for stuff they had locally, all in the name of political games, financial targets and cost cutting.

If you live in New York State, please contact your NY State Assembly member and NY State Senator about this matter. Find your NY State Assembly member here and find your NY State Senator here . There are two bad options, what would I lobby for? If you have an idea perhaps you could lay it out in a ...

Yes, we all need friends IMO, especially as we get older. My suggestion: Since you don't drink, which in and of itself makes you a freak in the U.K. apparently, perhaps you could try to build up a social club of sober people in your city? You could perhaps use Meetup.com or some similar platform. Yo...

Mate, mate selection predominantly revolves around finding someone to reproduce with. Bringing children into the world that have advantages is a primary concern. Providing a stable family for these kids is ALSO a primary concern. To that end, it's vitally important to pick someone you get along wit...
