[quote][/If an NT woke up with Asperger's tomorrow after a life time of being neurotypical, they'll commit suicide within a week. quote] I won't argue against that except to say that some NTs have been through mental and emotional torment they might gladly exchange for any number of other conditions...

Let me be clear: a therapist who does not report abuse is violating ethical standards and the law. It does not matter who is paying them. To underscore what others have already said, a good therapist will not treat you with condescension or mockery, and will not subject you to further abuse and gasl...

From my perspective, there are plenty of things to like about the '90s and plenty of things to hate--and sometimes the very same thing is both a blessing and a curse. What always amuses me about nostalgia threads or conversations like this is that inevitably someone talks about how much better-behav...

So, where do I go from here? I made a promise to this child to never give up on him, no matter what. Yes it may have been stupid of me to promise this, but I did it because I never though they'd move away. I messaged the mom to let her know that the mentorship could transfer to his new school, but ...

You are probably just copying the people you are around at work. Just try to make a deliberate effort to stop doing it...especially when you are not at work. Technic, perhaps you could remind yourself that you're not in the "cussing zone" when you consider your workday officially done, li...

Do not rush it. Three months is still early in a relationship, and considering their attitude toward her and your relationship with her, it would be better to wait until you have a longer and presumably stronger history. They may either calm down about the age difference or not, but you know [i] [/i...

Number one is a form of fantasy. I do not disagree. I hypothesize we all start there; and some evolve. 1. Belief; 2. Observation and reason. That's what it was like for me. Like any normal child, at first I didn't think to doubt what I was told. I don't know whether it was the contradictory nature ...

Why I Hate John Lennon's 'Imagine': I have no imagination.


I do, however, have extraordinary dexterity for twisting words around and the bombast to present them as reasonable and sage.

Religion has its faults but you have to worry about what replaces it. With religion you have respect for life & charity. While humanist beliefs are positive, would society naturally follow humanism? How would the poor or disabled fair in a such a society. Humanist principles include things like...

The official number of deities according to scripture is three, which it says is the same thing as one. I don't understand it, so I guess people who say they do are either much brighter than I am, or just making up nonsense. My working theory is that it's the latter. --ToughDiamond Unitarians start...

Any discussion of women's rights does seem to attract incels, misogynists, and toxic males in general.

[However, when women require their partners to earn more than themselves or think they should be entitled to the top attractive men, even if they are not top attractive themselves, then they will be unlikely to find a partner. If many women do this because of feminist attitudes that females are ent...

It does not call for the press to be one sided. The press are supposed to be neutral and should report on what they see and hear equally from both sides. And if one side is batshit insane and the other isn't, how should the media report on that? The do's and don'ts of what is a neutral position are...
