@L. Spiro : Thanks, now I know this is to have Asperger .
In french, it's a rare case in which wee can say both (avoir/être Asperger). I use "être" (everybody concerned naturally does in fact) because I don't feel this is something I have, this is me. (Je suis Asperger or Je suis autiste Asperger or casually Je suis Aspie, not J'ai Asperger or J'ai le syndrome d'Asperger, except in medical context)
Yes, people don't know it exists, this is the problem . In my country at least, this is the problem. Ask somenone in the street what is Asperger syndrome, they will very probably don't know. Ask someone in the street what is autism, they will very probably answer it's a disease in which you absolutely can't communicate except by knocking your head against a wall. Or you can give the 1000 first decimals of Pi. They don't know this is a spectrum
People should know AS exists, yes. To help Aspies integration in society. ( Since, my country is a democracy. Maybe not yours ? ).Because it's not just the label "mental disorder", too easy.
But people don't have to knwow who has it. This is private, as it is a medical condition.
I talk about adults.
It's like you want to refuse AS exists, .... what makes you incomfortable with this subject ? Because about the myths and legends that are spread on Aspies ? Those why so much people want to be aspies ? And why some others are jealous ? What a confusion...
(NB What makes me incomfortable, for instance, these are topics where people talk about genius, in fact meaning very intelligent people. The point of
geniality is not intelligence. All musicians know that. What a confusion...)
A funny indice : what is the power of the genie in the story of Aladdin. Why this name, finally ?
Merci belle calligraphie, mais ça n'a aucun sens pour moi. En anglais, ça donne ... ?
In all the countries where I have worked I have never met a single
person ever anywhere in-person who I would even remotely consider being
Aspergers. And I am living in Japan, where the chances for having
Aspergers in the IT field is highest. None. Not in school, not ever
anywhere in my life.
Nobody knows (except clairvoyant psychiatrists, of course. And Harry Potter. Because they have the faculty to play the doctor at sight. Fabulous isn't ?)
You would be surprised ! Especially by aspergirls ! They are fantastic actresses ! A majority of them even don't know they actually are Aspies, so much their mimicry is sophisticated ( I'm so jealous .... )
@TheChubu : Glad I didn't offend you, I just gave my point of view, as I have been myself diagnosed in a specialized service , without flourish
EDIT : Wow ..... just 25 modifications (maybe best ever since GameDev's creation , I just try to be as accurate as possible)
