Asperger's Is A Gift by MOJAL Asperger's Is A Gift by MOJAL
One of my ex's once called it a disability, and did I get pissed...


Edit: I've found that some misinformed trolls like to come by and try to stir up arguments by putting down Asperger's as something we do on purpose, or something silly we could easily stop doing. Ignore them, they'll go away on their own if they're not fed. Thank you!

I have a huge eye for detail and massive imagination, and I think it's because of my Asperger's(???). however there are some downsides to being an aspie.

Alright so, if it's a gift, then what are these benefits? I'm actually curious here. I looked at the symptoms list of Aspergers, there seems to be NOTHING good there.

Most scientifics have asperger's. It is even considered Albert  Einstein had asperger's. It makes you more aware, more creative, to think up worlds. To make art and try express yourself through it.

Hmm, I don't know. While I recognize that most scientists had it, you have to ask; did they make their accomplishments BECAUSE of Aspergers, or DESPITE Aspergers? There's also the correlation-causation problem, etc.

And I don't think those are actually symptoms of it. If you look at the CDC's page for Autism Spectrum, nothing of what you listed is there. ASD, of which Aspergers is a subset, has purely detrimental symptoms. The things you listed simply are not part of it.

But I mean, if you have another source of equal to or greater than reputability than the CDC that says otherwise, I'd love to see it.

Realy Callisto you could not dissuade me so you attack a random stamp that just so happens to say something that disagrees with you!

I agree it is a gift for if I were not Aspie I most likely would never have created my stories (so Keyvaile would never have existed.

With each blessing comes a curse, and with each curse comes a blessing. That is how I look at my Asperger.

Aspergers is cool. It's a gift not a disorder. It can be also known as a superpower. All aspies need to feel good about themselves or it will lead to depression and anxiety.

"Retard slut"

Grammatically incorrect and a horrible argument.

Nice slut shaming too. Really showing how I'm the "retard" here when that's literally your only comeback.

This speaks to me.

I'm a smart girl in school, and while I have Asperger's I don't see it as a weakness. I see it as the reason why I'm smart.

I agree with this- my Asperger's ups my IQ, but it makes social interaction synonymous with trying to stay afloat in a typhoon in nothing but a moldy potato barrel.

So, to any person who thinks aspergers is a choice, it isnt.  It's a mental "difference" that provides us extreme skill or ability in one area, at the cost of reduced levels in others.  I should know, I'm a genius with computers (with all honesty and humility), and I completely fail when trying to socially interact with anyone that isnt online.  So, to the jerks who will label me a retard for having aspergers, I have a 146 IQ, and have worked with design teams to make two major video games, Skyrim and (slightly) HL2 Episode 2.  You work at Taco Bell.  Who seems better off?

Sorry to anyone who read my rant and was thinking "What the hell?"  I just get ticked off at the amount of negativity towards the Aspergers and Autistic community as a whole.

Man, I know your pain. When I started school as a little kid, I wasn't even aware that being social was a requirement. Someone had to repeat to me many times until I could realize it...

Most people with Asperger's are smarter, but are more difficult and sometimes stubborn...

I have Asperger's.

Um... no. I show a lot of symptoms of asperger's and I'm visiting my psychiatrist soon to discuss it. I've been showing symptoms since a very young age but my parents denied I needed help. My life has been a living hell and I wish I could actually function correctly.
