I have had the opportunity to watch a number of children with autism try to navigate through school life. I wonder if the no 1 reason some neurotypicals think they dislike a another child with autism is becaus e they are not getting the signals that indicate 'like' from them. Ie that the NT child th...

So many things that have been said in this thread are true for me too. Especially the bewilderment at being left out of group events of people who are apparently each my friends. but this was teh main one... Yes especially in conversations involving multiple people. I am always replying to a topic w...

I have had some suspicions (I don't like this word but cannot think of a better one) about boys I knew when young confirmed by later diagnosis. I wondered about the behaviour of some girls about 25 years ago but the reading I did then convinced me I was wrong. I have since become aware that autism c...

With age and experience I have fewer meltdowns and can mostly avoid them and the reckless behaviour of my youth. I was very late diagnosed so I dont know what my life would have been like if I had understood myself and my differences earlier in life. But with age I just find myself caring less what ...

Interesting points. I have found also during my life that other people with apparently autistic traits like being around me. Therefore small groups of apparently autistic people (I don't know if they are diagnosed or not) tend to collect in my house. I suppose this is partly because an environment s...

Autistic women vary widely in what kinds of sensory issues we do or do not have, which would be a factor in our choice of bra. Personally, I've been wearing nothing but sports bras since I discovered their existence sometime in my late thirties. I need them to be made out of some highly breathable ...

Sometimes I feel like a third gender, not in a nonbinary way. I feel so rejected and judged by other women, and so alien and undesirable to men, that I feel like a subwoman-- not a man, in a female body, but with none of the mystique and allure that is supposed to accompany womanhood. I hate people...

I find many other women very kind and understanding. I really like being in women only groups. I am not very good at maintaining friendships though as I seek interaction much less frequently than NT women seem to like. There are small minded people of both sexes who do not seem to handle differences...
