Alex told me that in Italy, he never heard of the term Aspergers before. Does that mean it doesn't exist in Italy? If so, why? Is it because aspies have no trouble fitting into Italian social culture because it's more open, inclusive, authentic and doesn't persecute intellectuals for being deep or different or logical? Hence aspies have no trouble making friends or fitting in or connecting with others? If so, someone needs to tell the American mental health profession about this, because they never touch the subject of differences abroad or the therapy of going abroad. No one dares to bring it up to them.
I am no expert but I think it's a common variant of autism. I know one young man, a family friend's son, who has a pretty severe form of autism. He is in his mid 20s and unable to take care of himself. He has two part-time carers alternating to attend his every need...and it's quite a sad show.

I don't know anyone with Asperger, or at least anyone who has made it public. I guess some cases may be mild and just qualify that person as "weird". I am not even that conviced about these black-and-white definitions of mental conditions. Like the abundance of alleged ADHD cases that US doctors love to declare (and prescribe expensive medication for!) which are simply "brats" over in Italy/Europe.

Wow check this out. Girls with autism seem to be very sweet and sensitive, like me. Why can't we just date them?

Are there dating sites for Austistic people or meetup groups for aspies? If so, wouldn't we vibe with the women there? Since aspies understand other aspies because they are marginalized?

Isn't autism a lot more common among men than women? When I think of dating autistic women, I think of a woman who kind of looks and acts stereotypically mentally retarted, moving in an awkward, unattractive manner. But Asbergers can be indetectible, at least with adults who have learned to overcome acting awkward and compensate. One of the women in the videos Winston posted looks cute and acts normal. The other one I saw a bit of acted normal.

I don't think I fit the criteria for being autistic. I have a friend with Asbergers. He's friendly, and smart, but sort of nerdy. He occasionally gets into trouble, socially, probably making people feel uncomfortable, etc., not picking up on cues. I think he's learned to cope with Asbergers.
