There are theories that it has a genetic component as it appears to run in families, so not all stay single.

After posting all of that I'm not sure if you understand the term trolling.

Someone's having a bad weekend that's for sure

The original post is how I have been described.


Did you read all my posts or just the first one?

Your right not everybody is the same but there are common traits and I know many Aspies at this stage.

I started this thread undercover and I was busted a few posts in I was trying to gauge what the general population believed.

Somebody said it was a disease for example.

Very stupid original post, quite deceitful, especially at a time where others are working quite hard to get people on the spectrum with a foot in the door to big business ect.

Ironically it's quite self serving and seems to be the OP looking for reassurance.

No people with Aspergers are bad socially they don't get a free pass they usually get fired.

I have read all the posts , and I wasn't trying to be smart or funny with you . Yes , there are common traits , but you said you are an expert on the subject , and I said yes , in relation to yourself . You wouldn't be an expert on mine or anyone elses child with AS .

Not all the time it doesn't, it can be generic but it's not the only source of it.

Posts like the one below are why I started the thread just trying to clear up the misinformation a lot of people have.

Never claimed to be but I know a hell of a lot more than all those posters with their false outrage.
My whole purpose for this thread was to hook people in who had false misconceptions about Aspergers and correct them.


For example, it is not a disease or a mental disorder.

Having a few outraged people in the thread correct misconceptions was also useful.
Yer Da sells Avon blowing my cover was not.

I was posting in a thread from another Aspie over the weekend and he was posting rubbish and using his Asperger's as an excuse that is what motivated me to start this thread.

You could have been transparent and still had the right conversation. The post you highlight is actually in support of people on the spectrum and the worst crime they made is mislabelling as a disease.

I know for my daughter id rather have people be sympathetic/empathize and willing to work with her than writing her off from the get go.

Eh, you described people with aspergers as 'creepy', 'weirdos' etc. You either started this thread to troll or you yourself have a pretty warped and nasty view of those with aspergers.

One thing I consider very unfair for those on the spectrum is that while it is known that they have problems communicating, somehow the "normal" people who are experts in communication are unable to understand them.

Would you say a deaf person is to blame if they can't hear you?

Aspergers is a communication disorder at its heart and the post I have just quoted from you proves not only have you not read all of the thread you have not even read all of my posts in the thread.

How Ironic.
