One post which continues to get a lot of comments is the one from August 2011 on Aspergers Syndrome.
A few of the comments are from people who've had to deal with Aspies, and they are in complete agreement with the tone of the post. One or two seemed almost relieved that someone else had experienced the same things they had.
But many of the comments are from Aspies, and those are very critical. My favorite is from one guy who, among other things, stated, "I'm not here to be your bitch." (As if I somehow implied that he ought to be.) He also said I have an "entitlement problem" and am a "little dictator." This is typical Aspie behavior: instead of sticking to the subject and arguing about it calmly, they try to make it about the person they're arguing with.
The sheer volume of responses to the post is in fact telling, and almost comical. In the post I describe how awkward and rigid Aspies are, and also how they are unable to take any criticism. So the Aspies who read the post respond either by criticizing my character or accusing me of saying things I hadn't. But really, they are actually proving me right: Aspies melt down if they have to take any criticism.
One of the more interesting comments I've gotten was on the post about Al Gore and Aspergers Syndrome.
The commenter called me "an ignorant ass."
I can't help but wonder if I got that comment from the man himself. (I sure hope I did.)
This blog comes down much, much harder on sociopaths than on Aspies, but I never get comments from people defending sociopaths.
