It is possible, though unlikely, that you have not yet read this joke:
A unionized public employee, a member of the Tea Party, and a CEO are sitting at a table. In the middle of the table there is a plate with a dozen cookies on it. The CEO reaches across, takes 11 cookies, looks at the Tea Partier, and says, "Look out for that union guy, he wants a piece of your cookie."

(The story of the ugly duckling makes it seem all sweetness and light after our hero reaches adulthood. It omits the subsequent vita noir where the swan, bitter from childhood taunting, lashes out at any who would cross its path.)

I was railing at my boss today for trying to make me read his mind. And I thought that it is not fair for me to simply present a link, without emphasising the parts which made me sit back and say to myself: “Yes, this.” So I shall pull out some particularly relevant sections from The Game of Breathing.

Victimhood: the Aspie Wound )

Specifity of Traits )

Diagnosis, Skepticism and Ignorance )

But it's all relevant, and all good. Really.

And generally, this is a woman with Asperger's, who writes about her experiences.

I know that I feel resonance with what she is saying. And I think others reading may as well.

In the comments to a post about a particularly egregious case of Pathological Libertarianism, there was this (possibly old) gem:
All political ideologies are "big tent" ideologies; Communists want the whole tent to themselves, capitalists want this whole tent AND someone else's, anarchists want a new tent and libertarians want to dismantle the tent while they're still in it.

This is John Elder Robison's latest post (the author of Look Me in the Eye)

I think it needs to be read by as many people as possible.

I am autism, too. Thoughts on neurodiversity and the cure )

File this under: "I wish I had said that."

(PS: I should probably post the link, shouldn't I. Here.)
