I fluff my words if I try to talk or read aloud at the same speed as others seem able to, but it could be down to a more generalised slowness in brain processing. I'm fine if I do it a bit slower than average. I can do "tongue twisters" quite well but only if I've practised them. I had qui...

I don't know either. It's always seemed strange to me that in ancient times people didn't seem to question authority however violent it was. Maybe it's safer to call it out these days, depending on where you live.

Can't say I like being a passenger in the ordinary public transport trains they have in the UK these days. The whole experience is too monotonous and cramped, at least on the routes I've used - chiefly between Leicester and London St. Pancras. But I used to love them when I was a kid. I can still re...

Yes if you can find a good healthcare professional you can afford, try that if your symptoms don't go away. Certainly depression is thought to be more common in Aspies, but it doesn't happen to us all. If it were me, I'd try self-help first, but that's just me. I'd want to ask myself if anything bad...

1. Is it bad to look for it? Should we just stumble on it? Well, I suppose if something you'd like to have isn't there, it's OK to look for it. 2. How do you define obsessive perseverance? In psychology obsession seems to be something that is mostly negative. It seems to have another meaning outsid...

Well, Wikipedia works largely for "that warm feeling"... and it does work. And it is true that when my husband changed his workplace from one where all he created was super confidential and ended up somewhere deep in the archives to one where he could publish his work under his own name i...

1. How did you find your area of expertise? Was this something that was very obvious? I think I just stumbled on it. I wasn't looking for it. I wanted a result, and I suppose some of my ASD traits made it hard for me to rest till I got it. 2 how did ASD help make you really good at your area of exp...

Aspies suffer enough mockery and ridicule as it is, without consciously adding to the burden by using derisable, ridiculous, nonsensical, pretentious, and politically correct sounding language. It's safe to say that I really do not like it. Yes I sense a pretentious and condescending element to per...

Looks like most Aspies don't want person-first nomenclature then. It seems that health professionals have decided what's good for us without asking. Personally I don't see why anybody would prefer person-first anything, but if a ND really wanted me to use it, then it'd probably be a case of "oh...

I was having in mind creative work - science, engineering, art. You can do lots of work without any value there or, with a spark of genius, something of great importance with relatively little work. I guess those who had created a product with exceptional use-value would have to be content with the...

Anyone Heard Of The Term Womanface ? I have not. No. Neither had I until now. Do those "women" in Monty Python count? Is this an instance of Auditory Yellowface? Non-oriental voice-dub actors using over-the-top oriental accents. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fIeBOIZigJ0 https://www.yout...

^ I lived in the UK most of my life, always in cities with large Muslim populations (over 40% in my last place) but I've never had a Muslim friend in my life, at least anybody who could be called close. I've currently got only one black friend, and even he is only black on his dad's side. We're quit...

I think labor theory of value can be considered as... maybe rather labor aspect of value? Yes. I wish Marx hadn't tried to take over the term "value" quite like he did. To me it's not really the theory of value, it's as you say an aspect, a way of seeing value, a concept in itself. I thin...

Ugh, self loathing white people are the f*****g worst, it's just so cringe. Well that's one way of putting it, though I doubt it'll win hearts and minds. But I pretty much agree with you, assuming you're talking about those cartoons. I think they're mostly indulging in the straw-man fallacy, and I ...

I think it's kind of an outdated ideology now too, a product of it's time. I think the "labor theory of value" does not account to i.e. automatization - the same things can be produced with way less amount of labour but they are just as useful or useless as they were before. There's enorm...
