One of the worst things about Aspergers is the transparency of the individual in the eyes of others. People often mistake the pure direct perspective as low self esteem, being a loser and not opting for being positive. When realistically allot of people with ASD prefer not to bypass the truth. I find unrecognised ASD appears to others like a person has the mind of a child. Both men and women are in the same boat with ASD, women get treated like dumb sex objects and men get completely and utterly ignored.

  1. Yeah, I get this. Before it was even suggested I was on the spectrum, I would get comments like:

    "You're so innocent, kind, literal, and almost child like despite all you've been through."

    At the time it rubbed me the wrong way somehow, but I just couldn't put my finger on it. Now of course I get it, and it goes right along with not being heard or understood most of my life.
