re: Boy with Asperger's syndrome hospitalized after brutal school attack - drunkenpunkin
Zereaux, my 14 year old has Aspergers, too. He's a good kid. Very quiet at school, socially awkward especially now that girls are in the picture, very intelligent and in honors classes. The over generalization of Aspys being a-holes really irks me. My son is quiet and isolated. He has friends...

It wasn't really taken off. The names of the classifications have changed with the DSM V, but it doesn't change high functioning autism. Just a different name. ...

re: Is everyone at least slightly prejudice against short people - drunkenpunkin
I don't think so? I'm average height for a woman. I've dated really tall guys and average to shorter guys. I draw the line if the guy is shorter than me without heels though. Nothing against shorter guys. I just don't like feeling like an Amazon. And I like wearing heels. ...

re: Mid 30s republication here- question - drunkenpunkin
Completely agree. Mid 30s Republican as well. But I always say I'm fiscally conservative and more socially liberal. Like Jesus. The Rs need to let go of gay marriage, pot, and abortion. But the GOP won't even think of nominating someone even marginally out of step. And that is why they wo...

re: Asperger Supremacy is a real threat - drunkenpunkin
I've worked a lot in the autism community, and honestly, I can't agree with you more. But, it's not the people with Aspergers or autism that annoy me. It's the parents. I have a son with Aspergers and a son with classic autism. It was very rough in the early years, but both of my boys are doing r...

re: How disrespectful would your boss have to be before you quit? - drunkenpunkin
Mine cut my hours back right when it was time for my yearly raise. Then added responsibilities. Then jumped my arse for not having time for BS "meetings" which were basically just an opportunity to yell at everyone. I rolled. ...

re: brag on your kids thread - drunkenpunkin
My oldest is really smart and conscientious. He puts others above himself, which can also be concerning as his mom, but is the mark of a truly good person. He's moving to honors classes after struggling with learning problems when he was younger. My daughter is beautiful, intelligent, talent...

I could play what if all day. I choose not to in regards to my son. But, I can tell you there is no way to separate him from his disability. He is who he is because of the life he has lived. ...

re: Baby born with Down Syndrome. Mom wants to give him up, but Dad refuses. - drunkenpunkin
I just can't even. What a horrible, horrible person. She should not be allowed to have children because she clearly isn't cut out to be a mother at all. My son is severely disabled. Not cognitively. He's on point there. But, physically, his body is failing. I have never once thought what ...
