If you suspect autism, I would suggest that you make an organized list of the reasons why. Organize your list into categories such as "social difficulties," "sensory issues," "executive functioning issues," etc. If you are aware of having had developmental delays as a c...

In my country which is U.S.A. some people think that we invented it and I don’t believe that Who claims that we invented slavery??? Can point to some examples of people claiming this on the web? European colonists in the Americas certainly did not invent slavery, but did practice a very brutal form...

"Hispanic" derives from the word "Hispania" which was the ancient Roman word for the entire Iberian Peninsula: both modern Spain, and modern Portugal. Ergo both Portuguese speaking Brazilians and Spanish speaking folks from the rest of South America, Central America, Mexico, and...

To uncommondenominator: See also my post here , on the previous page. But I do agree with most of the following: I still can't help but feel that some of our problems are less related to an "inability" to learn social skills, and more related to some of the maladaptive behaviors we've pick...

Furthermore, it occurs to me - are we not, those of us here in this thread, this forum, socializing? Holding conversations, expressing ideas, etc. Not only that, but there's a group of us. That means we're engaging in group socialization. We're each talking to multiple people. We're talking among o...

Question: Why do people (and by people I mean liberals) who tend to claim to be against labels seem so focused on labeling everything? People who claim to be "against labels" are usually apolitical. Political activists of all stripes usually recognize that labels -- of one kind or another...

As quoted above: Only 2 percent of those polled refer to themselves as Latinx, while 68 percent call themselves “Hispanic” and 21 percent favored “Latino” or “Latina” to describe their ethnic background, according to the survey from Bendixen & Amandi International, a top Democratic firm speciali...

I agree with their decision to want to ban this ridiculous word. And I hope that the irony of woke Americans trying to enforce their morality on non-Americans in the most prime example of anglicized ethnocentricism disguised as 'social justice' is not lost on everyone but me. No, the term "Lat...

As applied to autistics the term is a rough sketch, and a piece of shorthand. But its better than nothing because the term became necessary in 1994 when they expanded the range of people who are classified as "autistic" to include folks (like me) who blend into society better than do clas...

I am serious. At church.

Probably works well if you're a believer in the religion in question. Not so well if you aren't.

If you're an atheist, there are church-like groups for atheists such as the Ethical Culture Society and the Sunday Assembly.

I think they would be better served if instead of trying to ban the entire branch they petition the branch to disavow specific bad things such as ABA that Autism Speaks supports. That might be a good first step, unlikely to succeed, but would provide additional justification for the next step, aski...
