  • Gavia there is much truth in what you say, but I think that truth needs to be tempered with compassion. Decades before I was diagnosed, people found me rude - and sometimes I found out about it. I had no intention to be rude, but I had very little self-awareness either. Nowadays, at the age of 62, I try to be warm and charming with everyone, but I still get hostile reactions from neurotypicals who get outraged because I don't use the precise verbal formulae that represent the only way they can interact with people, and they also get outraged when I don't understand what they are getting at, and I ask them to explain. When they get on their high horses like that, then I consider them legitimate military targets, and sometimes unleash a bit of acerbic logic at them, which often freaks them out. But look, that's their problem: if they can't respond in an open and civil fashion to an open and honest approach which was initially put politely, then I don't give a stuff what the fascistic idiots feel. Avanice day, y'all! - Jason
