unique intrigueMy nom de plume is Cirro and my unique intrigue is mists! I'm 17, from South England, and have self-trained academia throughout the previous 3 years [tho I need to return to typical school]. PM me on the off chance that you wanna talk/bluster abt anything
I have an inquiry for you all: am I terrible for believing that calling ASD "high" or "low" working is acceptable?
I don't believe it's an ideal thought yet at whatever point I state I have Asperger's versus Autism I show signs of improvement reaction. My reaction, I mean the underlying response [facial signs suggesting compassion or shock or anxiety abt how to respond, etc]. UGH, I HATE BEING PITIED. I'D RATHER BE GASLIGHTED.
It's difficult to clarify yet I frequently despise being attached to some inflexible model of "chemical imbalance" and I feel like the "Asperger's" generalization suits me more. Furthermore, I'd preferably be overestimated over disparaged; in any event, they'd think I have potential.
I realize this is a disputable technique for presentation however I feel intellectually shackled so I need to vent. I'm a pleasant individual, I guarantee!
@Atavistic Autist - You thought you'd at least worry me with a post like this, but I doubted it from the start, because there are literally no pictures of me online (unless I just happened to randomly walk into someones camera frame)
I'm a ghost, no social media profiles, no nothing
It was taught in a baraita in tractate Derekh Eretz that Rabbi Akiva said: I once entered the bathroom after my teacher Rabbi Yehoshua, and I learned three things from observing his behavior: I learned that one should not defecate while facing east and west, but rather while facing north and south; I learned that one should not uncover himself while standing, but while sitting, in the interest of modesty; and I learned that one should not wipe with his right hand, but with his left. Ben Azzai, a student of Rabbi Akiva, said to him: You were impertinent to your teacher to that extent that you observed that much? He replied: It is Torah, and I must learn.
On a similar note, the Gemara relates that Rav Kahana entered and lay beneath Rav’s bed. He heard Rav chatting and laughing with his wife, and seeing to his needs, i.e., having relations with her. Rav Kahana said to Rav: The mouth of Abba, Rav, is like one whom has never eaten a cooked dish, i.e., his behavior was lustful. Rav said to him: Kahana, you are here? Leave, as this is an undesirable mode of behavior. Rav Kahana said to him: It is Torah, and I must learn.
