"What do people outside of the autistic spectrum think of autistic people?"
I'm hoping to get opinions here.
I'll go with manual quoting instead.
There are so many things I don't get in this post. XD
"I was wondering what frightened little girls think about autism, that's why I came to a Hells Angels meeting.
So, what do y'all think?"
Nope, no clue whatsoever what the quote is referring to.
Unless you're comparing users that have nicely participated in the discussion to "frightened little girls"?
If that's the case I'll politely ask you, not to insult people.
Autism comes in a million different shapes and sizes. This question is like "what do people think about food?".
So we agree it's an interesting topic and a very wide spectrum, good to know. :P
People who do not think like you think you are crazy, and probably racist. That's all you really need to know.
If you want to change that, never speak again. People will still think you're crazy, but they will think you're savant-
crazy instead of racist-crazy.
Learning to play the piano helps as a convincer.
Ah, the most interesting part.
First, what's the scope of the "you" here?
Me or any autistic person?
Seeing you're replying to me instead of making a new post on its own I'll go with the "me" interpretation.
"People who do not think like you" Hm, I see two possibilities here.
A: "People who do not think"
As someone who can never completely empty her mind, I'm surprised there are people capable of such a feat.
B: "People who do not think like you"
I imagine that's a lot of people. I hold the opinion that not two people really think completely alike given we are all shaped differently by our experiences and a multitude of other factors.
"[...] you are crazy, and probably racist."
I've been told two sets of concepts have very thin lines between them - 1 bravery and foolishness, 2 madness and brilliance.
I'll let people decide where on those spectrums they want to place me, but I can guarantee I'll try my very best to remain a kind, humorous and honest to a fault weirdo. :)
If I've ever offended anyone with those qualities now in the past, or if I do so in the future, they have my humble apologies.
If it's a matter of language, please note that English isn't my mother tongue and I'm likely to unintentionally misuse it on occasion, no matter how much I study it or try to prevent such mistakes.
There's not turning the fact that I wasn't born into it.
"That's all you really need to know."
Given the vast reaches of my curiosity, I beg to differ. ;)
"If you want to change that, never speak again."
Duly noted, but given my right of free speech also disregarded. :P
"Learning to play the piano helps as a convincer."
Thanks for the advice, but I've never had even the slightest talent for music, so for the good of people's ears I'll avoid anything as complex as a piano even if I ever do venture to explore instrument territory.
Hm, according to Google YMMV stands for "your mileage may vary". My thanks for introducing me to a new acronym. :D *knowledge database +1*
Is this thread related to the website redesign? I dont think its fair to compare these things honestly.
