A Man Unmasked

For people on the spectrum, how well someone fares in the general public or on the job often depends on someone’s ability to hide his or her autistic traits and mannerisms.

    Beautifully written with great detail to help share awareness of one of many life experiences we all should take more time to learn about and appreciate. I wasn’t familiar with the terminology in the beginning, however many of the behaviors were so familiar to me.. Thank you for sharing.

    Wow! I knew the facsimile was invended before the telephone, but i never thought of it in that context. What a great analogy. And I thought mammoths were extinct much before that, but the data seems to be correct. That’s very interesting. Thanks, well, to Leo first, then to you.
    Siding the subject, once I and my former wife were studying in the same vocational school. She was practicing tiling a wall near my dressing room woth some classmates of hers. As a professional of the trade, I happened to think about perhaps giving them some advice.. I stopped, observed their methods of working, then, belatedly, thought about whether an offer to help would be welcomed, assessed what I knew about her and younger women in general, and decided it wouldn’t. Took about 20 seconds, a lot to puzzle out in such a short time. Later my ex-wife mentioned me staring at them like some kind of a creep.
    And I had thought if I could help them. Creep.
    Mercifully I probably just don’t notice most incidents like this, but.. sometimes this world can be just so depressing.
