I know what you’re thinking: “What’s she on about now?” I’m tired of being told indirectly that I should feel shame for having Asperger’s-such as being mocked for my dull voice, mimicked in my knowledge, or people trying to force eye contact to make me feel uncomfortable. Because being on the autism spectrum is pretty cool. And I want to prove this in one post.
# Special interests.
Special interests… what can I say? Yes, it’s perceived as being ‘annoying’ when we can’t talk about anything else, apart from our special interest. But it allows us to specialise in whatever field, and to a greater degree than may have otherwise been possible.
Organisation is something that I’m good at, but not because I want to be. (If I don’t know exactly what happens when, or when an assignment is due, I can become very anxious.) But organisation is a plus, as it leaves a lot of time and utilises it to the max. And it allows us to accomplish a lot.
Can I be honest? I have always wanted to talk about more than just what is deemed ‘appropriate’ for my age group-I want to talk about Cold War history, current affairs, singers, concerts, blogging, books, etc. I never wanted to talk about just boys, hair, make up. Not that there’s anything wrong wth these topics-they’re just a bit limiting, and (in my opinion) dull. If you’re an ‘Aspie’, there’s something original in what yo wish to talk about.
