Special interests by grelb32 in femaleautism

You say I don't have a special interest but I used to devour books by the dozens, sometimes reading two or three at a time (not just in a day). I'd have one I'd take to school and one I'd read at home and then if I found another book to read I'd start on that too. I don't read multiple books at a time anymore but these days if I'm not playing a game I'm reading. Plus I read whole series' at a time and will sometimes read a book twice in a row.

I want to say this is how I know things I haven't been taught. Reading something and putting it toward another thing that seems like it would work similarly.

I just don't talk about anything because after a while having your mom tell you to shut up and nobody cares and I just talk to talk makes me feel like nothing I want to say is important. So I don't.

I managed to fix it by changing some of my preferences. I unchecked both under link options that say don't show if voted. It was removing posts from view even if I just loaded the page once but didn't click on it. Now everything is back.

I was going to comment on this days ago but I've been having issues with stuff I didn't post not showing up. I read through this, but as it's been a few days I don't remember. I didn't want you to think this was forgotten!

When it comes to questions that I usually try to find something that is related and relevant to the answers. Like am I interested in math/schedules or strings of numbers/stats. Despite my inability to stick to a schedule, I do have an interest in them.

Okay I'm not trying to be an ass. I'm a female with autism. If you just want to start shit you can go somewhere else. If you want support stop being offended.

Regardless if it was staged, these people are going to be facing prison time for felonies and they need to stop.

People just grab onto something and no matter how many posts say "I agree" they are still going to reply with "I agree". Just upvote the post that says what you thought too.

If it's still being discussed, leave it. I like it the way it is.

Well I suppose there needs to be some use for iPhones, but that seems like a total waste of money. I mean brake pads are like $20.

Who's got old iPhones? Let's do it!

I feel like that CDC page titled Vaccines Do Not Cause Autism should be posted all over the place at this point.

I do agree on the food issue. Trying to eat healthy is practically impossible. It doesn't help that my relationship to food is weird to begin with. I just sort of eat one thing for months at a time until I get sick of it then move on to the next thing.

I feel like the bacteria in the gut is a given since so many of us have issues. I have IBSD.

I never considered the pollution thing, which is kind of funny considering I grew up in the era of refineries finally getting dumped on for the crap they spew.

Thanks for explaining, I can never tell what people mean when they respond with just a couple words to things.

There is a huge difference in the way we present. Female roles in society can mask our symptoms. We are supposed to be the social creatures, and all the pressure we get from others to be social make many females "mask". That means we basically mimic what we see others do rather than knowing that's what we are supposed to do. Our special interests are harder to see, sometimes because of the masking.

Some females do present like males, and of course our levels are the same as theirs. In fact, the only reason we started getting attention is because of the females that presented like males.

If you check out that first link, you'll find some more information.
