He was part of the final graduating class of survivors of the 2018 shooting, and they all had just marked the...

Not Every Autistic Person is a ‘Savant.’ But the Stereotype Has Significant Mental Health Costs. My experiences made me feel that autistic people are only valued if they are a ‘genius’ or a ‘savant’ — otherwise, society doesn’t accept us… If you are excellent at something, then all is well; without...

In this era when so many old songs have been cancelled a lot of the songs we have been discussing are still regularly played on “oldies”, “Classic Hits”, and “Classic Rock” stations.

We have no way of knowing if these historical figures were autistic or not. We can suspect these people were autistic but we will probably never know. What we do know is that these people had traits associated with Autism. In my humble opinion this is how one should deal and not deal with this infor...

Barnes did not suggest she is on the spectrum, he stated it. What his statement did suggest is that an “autism defense” might be added. As said earlier I have no idea if she is autistic, or if she has a diagnosis of any kind. Despite the statement that she is on the spectrum being seemingly a casual...

He was “of his time”, but would be considered much too offensive for a number of reasons most especially for his politically based skits for today’s gatekeepers. Funny and had that excellent timing required to be a good comedian.

I post on a guitar forum with a lot of boomers. Clapton is God isn't just a slogan used to promote the Yardbirds over there, it's theology (and I'm an atheist). Clapton has always been an as*hole and Page molested children . Not to many rock stars back then did not mess around with “jailbait” and i...
