autisticlemongrab-deactivated20 asked: HHOOOOUUUUUUH?! UNACCEPTABLE!!! Have you seen the episodes of Degrassi featuring that BUTTCHICKEN Connor, with his so-called Asperger's?! I don't know what his problem was, but it sure as sugar wasn't autism! He was just an inconsiderate jerk with anger issues! EVEN LEMONGRAB IS A BETTER CHARACTER THAN CONNOR!!!

Guy: "Oh no, I don't get sarcasm, I'm AUTISTIC!" (He isn't. He was mocking an Autistic person.)
Me: "HEY, DUDE. STOP!"
Sarah: "First off, sometimes they can. Second off, that's not a very good test to give an autistic person at all."
Another guy: "-Starts beating the guy who was mocking Autistic people with a planner-"
matthew0440 replied to your post My comment looks like an insult next to those… I didn’t think it was! :D
Okay, guys. I’m really, really poor. Like, I can’t get groceries and can barely pay rent poor. My question to you guys is if you would be horribly angry at me if I posted an ad or two on here. I’m just in a bad place. I just want to not have to eat Easy Mac and Ramen forever. -Elisa P.S. Not even sure if it’s going to happen, I did apply, though.

autisticlemongrab-deactivated20 asked: If you don't like the puzzle piece symbol because it reminds you of Autism Speaks... well, that sucks. :P Puzzles are fun and interesting. Like Lemongrab. I think. And Autism Speaks didn't invent the puzzle symbol. We should take it back! Take back the power for US to use the symbol as we please! ONE MILLION YEARS DUNGEON!!!
autisticlemongrab-deactivated20 asked: 0______0 DO YOU LOVE ME OR SOMETHING?!
autisticlemongrab-deactivated20 asked: I like the puzzle piece. I don't consider it a direct symbol of autistic PEOPLE I consider it to be a representation of a VERY complex, confusing, and complicated medical condition, which is still totally baffling scientists. Its cause, its direct treatment, and its detection are very hazy right now. I always thought the puzzle was a representation of how puzzling the nature of the condition...
hehadntbeenagod asked: I don't know if this is an Asperger's thing, but I always wait until my food is room temperature before I eat it.
I'll understand if you don't post this. I just...
(I cannot even begin to describe how much I love this blog. It’s like you have a camera in my brain.) I’ve been reading this blog for a while, and I wanted to share my story. I was diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome seven years ago, when I was eight years old (I’m 15 now), but my mother decided not to tell me until I could “do something” with the information,...
flemishdog asked: and of course the tapes mostly deal with the lower functioning.
flemishdog asked: also my mum taped a lot of stuff about autism to learn about it when I was diagnosed in 93 and I still have the tapes yfrog[.]com/3wgmryj and it's pretty amazing how most of it is already outdated. The person who diagnosed me is in one of the tapes.
flemishdog asked: alternatively, am i the only autistic who doesn't understand the hate about puzzle pieces? It was used by groups as a logo in australia and I've sort of grown up with it? (yfrog[.]com/msxzhuj) I dunno. if you don't like it I dont mind. I just don't get it =\
Anonymous asked: Do you believe in functioning levels?
Today I accidentally said “High-functioning artistic”.
fallenagain asked: Am I the only autistic out there who gets absolutely infuriated when people make puzzle piece references? I'm a person. I don't have some missing piece! If anything - Allistics are the ones missing pieces! >:(

When someone who doesn’t follow you reblogs something of yours that isn’t even tagged.
I'm unsure about this one's relevance to other...
So, I really don’t like calling people by their names until I know them really, really well. I’d love to know that other people share this.
poetacinzento asked: 135? That's exactly mine! High-five! The geeks are on the loose! Anyway, IQ is just a number. There are high IQ people who are complete idiots and low IQ people who are smart and interesting.
nicholassayre asked: IQ isn't a really a meaningful measurement of anything but the ability to pass IQ tests. Give neuroscientists a few more decades and they may have a reasonable test for intelligence, assuming they've agreed upon a definition for intelligence.
viserystargy asked: I've read that it's difficult to get a really accurate IQ result from those on the spectrum. I've had several tests done and my IQ ranged from 123-140s. If it's 123 that means, according to the bell curve, I'm smarter than 93.7% of the population, and I'm high functioning autistic. Best part: my IQ is higher than my siblings that are not on the spectrum and swear...
sherlockhome-less asked: There are many days where I would be considered "low functioning," and for me, it's extremely hard to speak, leave my room, perform tasks...but I have an IQ of 142. A lot of people looking at me in public wouldn't think that at first judgement. "Functioning level" and IQ are two very separate things, and I think it's just part of what makes all autistics unique....
wolfennights asked: 3 years ago I had a neuropsychological evaluation done. This was where they found out I had ADD. They also told me my IQ ranged from 40 to 144.

unpenguin asked: It's not just determined by IQ, but an IQ lower than 70 is required to be diagnosed as mentally retarded. Lower than 85, higher than 69 is considered borderline intellectual functioning.
Anonymous asked: I heard that official diagnosis of "mental retardation" is dependent on IQ (mental age divided by physical age, multiplied by 100). Anything lower than 85 counts as "retarded". Know if there's any truth to that?
