Hello guys, So Willow has mentioned to me before that people often ask her what is it like to be in a relationship with someone who is Neurotypical, and that she finds it difficult to answer or is unsure of how to answer people, so i was thinking did anyone have any questions that i could answer, just to give people the opportunity to ask an NT which maybe they've never had the chance to do. Ask away and ill answer the best i can Rhys
One thing I've come to notice while talking to other Aspies is that a lot of us (some, not all) tend to have an extreme dislike for NT's. I get that the majority of us have been bullied because of the way we are and are made to feel completely isolated because of NT behaviour, but I'm curious by some of the stronger negative emotions some of us have towards NT's in general. I'm hoping this isn't coming out in the wrong way I'm not accusing, I'm not judging and I am certainly not aiming this at anyone in particular. I'm honestly just curious as to why some of us write off NT's completely. Do we think it's the right way to go about things and should we judge people for being NT? I would say no, why do that when we know how that feels when it has been done to us? We're all people. I try to accept everyone for who they are. Yes, some people (NT or not) make it very difficult sometimes, but I would never dislike them as a group. That would fall under stereotyping which I don't like. Would we really be happy if there were no NT's? I know that I definitely wouldn't, being that my whole family are NT as is my boyfriend and I adore the lot of them! Any thoughts on the matter? Again, I'm only asking out of curiosity so please don't take this the wrong way
Ok, I don't have much to say so i'll just cut to the chase about this. Do you think people with Autism/Aspergers should be ourselves or should we try and act our hardest to try and fit into society's expectations of neurotypical? (and often fail) Or try meet somewhere inbetween? and here's a i found i wanted to share (yes i know a little of topic)
hi, i came across this article and wanted to share it with you. Based on my experiences, I agree with most if not all of it. What about you? D (Note: The content of this site is a parody. It is not to be taken literally. Help with understanding the humor.) What Is NT? Neurotypical syndrome is a neurobiological disorder characterized by preoccupation with social concerns, delusions of superiority, and obsession with conformity. Neurotypical individuals often assume that their experience of the world is either the only one, or the only correct one. NTs find it difficult to be alone. NTs are often intolerant of seemingly minor differences in others. When in groups NTs are socially and behaviorally rigid, and frequently insist upon the performance of dysfunctional, destructive, and even impossible rituals as a way of maintaining group identity. NTs find it difficult to communicate directly, and have a much higher incidence of lying as compared to persons on the autistic spectrum. NT is believed to be genetic in origin. Autopsies have shown the brain of the neurotypical is typically smaller than that of an autistic individual and may have overdeveloped areas related to social behavior. The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Normal Disorders: 666.00 Neurotypic DisorderHow Common Is It? Tragically, as many as 9625 out of every 10,000 individuals may be neurotypical. Are There Any Treatments For NT? There is no known cure for Neurotypical Syndrome. However, many NTs have learned to compensate for their disabilities and interact normally with autistic persons.

DSN entry for Staff Personality Disorder (added 30 Aug 2004) DSN entry for Normal Personality Disorder DSN entry for Pseudosimultaneous Awareness Disorder DSN entry for Psychiatry Disorder NT Theory of Mind About This Site This site is an expression of autistic outrage. About a year ago I learned I was on the autistic spectrum. Inspired by this discovery, I read everything I could get my hands on about the autistic spectrum. Much of it makes sense-- for the first time in 41 years, I had a description, albiet an unexpected one, that fit me. But a lot of what I've found out there, mostly written by "experts" and "professionals", has been arrogant, insulting, and just plain wrong. My bête noire of the moment is finding my emotions described as "flat". As someone with considerably greater expertise in my emotions than the "experts", I can state unequivocally that my emotions are not "flat". They are different, yes, but they are most certainly not "flat." Perhaps tomorrow I'll be fired up over being described as "lacking empathy". Or I'll be outraged at an exceptionally clueless "training" method being inflicted upon autistic kids. Or maybe it will be some new paper written by some "expert" from the perspective that neurotypical perception is correct, and my brain is a genetic mistake. My brain is a jewel. I am in awe of the mind that I have. I and my experience of life is not inferior, and may be superior, to the NT experience of life. Hence, this "Institute". Persons on the autistic spectrum and NT supporters are invited to submit papers to the Institute, and to share your observations in "Current Research" (the guestbook). -muskie Copyright © 1998-2002 ISNT@autistics.org.
