I agree with TheChubu. This interest in asperger's is becoming the next "ADD".
Bingo. In the 90s it was ADD, now it's autism. I met about 5 trillion people in school who had ADD and my conclusion was that ADD means, "Fuck you, I'mma do what I want."
Then I met one kid that had actually been diagnosed with ADD and my conclusion was, "No, you other guys don't have ADD. You're just assholes."
Same exact phenomenon now with Asperger syndrome:
- People don't like me.
- It's because I'm an asshole.
- If I pretend to be handicapped then maybe they'll start liking me.
- This way I don't have to stop being an asshole.
