Asperger's Syndrome Stamp by Clockwerk-chan Asperger's Syndrome Stamp by Clockwerk-chan
Asperger's Syndrome, a neurological disorder on the autistic spectrum, is a rare disorder associated with classic autistic symptoms such as underdeveloped social skills and unusual ways of processing information and perception of one's environment. The main difference between Asperger's and other forms of autism is the delay in speech development, which is a typical symptom of "classic" autism, but is usually not present with Asperger's. Asperger's is often associated with autistic individuals with higher than average intelligence, but it is not a defining characteristic.
Asperger's is a wildly overdiagnosed disorder, in result of doctors unfamiliar with the disorder misdiagnosing children and adults with "normal" autism, or simply have poor social skills.

- Being autistic and "bright" does not mean you have Asperger's Syndrome.
- Being socially awkward does not mean you have Asperger's Syndrome.
- Being a "nerd" does not mean you have Asperger's Syndrome.
- Being a genius does not mean you have Asperger's Syndrome.

Taking an online test or reading about symptoms of Asperger's syndrome online does not qualify you to make an informed, professional diagnosis of a rare neurological disorder. If you truly believe you have Asperger's Syndrome, make an appointment with a well-accredited psychologist, preferably one who specializes in autism or similar neurological disorders, and let them diagnose you.

Being energetic does not mean you have ADHD, and being socially awkward does not mean you have Asperger's Syndrome. Stop claiming to have a rare disorder to explain away why you're unpopular or bad at [insert skill here]. It's stupid, obnoxious, and makes people that actually HAVE the disorder look bad.

(Following comment is not intended to be rude, or to start a fight).
I'm a bit confused here as to where you found somewhere that dubs it a "rare" disorder?

Asperger's syndrome is dubbed a "Hidden disability" because you can't tell from a person's outward appearance that they are in fact Asperger's, so it can be highly subtle but that doesn't mean you don't have it. The fact that it's a spectrum disorder means we're probably all on the spectrum somewhere, but a lot of people only have 1 or 2 traits maybe and so are on the bottom part, the "Neurotypical" part- but a lot of people have enough traits to be classified as Aspergers (or slightly Aspergers). The diagnosis for the test is purely a checklist of triats and if you have more than a certain amount than you will be classified as Aspergers and mathematically speaking- the odds of lots of people not scoring enough to qualify as an Aspie is highly improbable. People say it's rarer for females to have it (as Originally Hans Asperger himself believed it to be a disorder only boys had) and on the whole studies have found that to be true to a certain extent but the condition itself isn't really...Though I agree with what you say in that people should not self- diagnose especially if only one or two traits match because it just causes misdiagnosis and later trouble (plus how many people can talk themselves into thinking they have it if they don't?)

Again- I don't intend this to be rude or argumentative, so please don't take it that way.

Actually, I do have Asperger's, and OCD, and ADHD. This stamp it rude. If someone is faking having Autism to get attention, they need to fess up for themselves. A little stamp isn't doing anything but insulting those of us who really do have these disorders.

Don't have aspergers, but trust me aspies; being as painfully shy as I am is pretty much the same thing.
Kinda wish I had a disorder to use as an excuse tbh.

You painfully shy too and not on the spectrum? If so good to know I'm not alone lol, I have serious intimidation issues is why I'm so scared of everyone..;.; I was never bullied/rejected so I have no idea where this hell stimulated from. The one thing not being disabled benefits me in is I'm very polite and I understand facial expressions/hand gestures, I've heard aspies can be rude/pricks.(not their fault, they don't really understand what's "acceptable" and what's not) That was waay too long, sorry about that.TwT

They should also realize that not everyone with non-Asperger's autism is mentally retarded. Apparently, I have regular old autism - it's because I had a speech delay. I am very smart and I don't have any mental retardation.

Unless you actually do, of course. I have Asperger's, and I've had to deal with a downright inability to pick up on even basic social cues all my life. It sounds like a tiny, insignificant little thing but considering we are a social species, it's straight up annoying.

And I'd like to say a big thanks to genetics for giving me none of its benefits (heightened logical thinking, higher than average iq, etc.) and all of the bad ones (no social skills, heightened sense of touch, inflated ego). Love you all!

As someone professionally diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome, it bothers me so much when people claim they've "self-diagnosed" to explain any and all out-of-the-norm behavior.

"A lot of people who self diagnose put in a lot of thought into exactly what is going on with their neurotype/moods/behaviors, etc. and want answers. This need stems from not only wanting to know more about themselves, but finding others who are similar to them in that regard, a community. I do not believe for a microsecond that people self-diagnose “for no good reason.”That is utter bullshit.

The systematic oppressions at play (sexism, racism, etc.) affect an Autistic person severely. It doesn’t make one “slightly unwilling”, do not make this into a light matter because it’s not. The impact can range from being told that your experiences aren’t valid, to being diagnosed under an ableist dichotomy (“high-functioning” or “low-functioning”), to being forcefully sterilized, to being put in an institution against your will, to even being killed. The likelihood of these things INCREASES when you factor in race, class, gender, etc.

You say you’re aware that doctors aren’t right 100% of the time, yet you believe the word of a doctor over the word over someone’s first hand experiences. And yes, I will absolutely sit here and tell you that self diagnoses is valid."-bendingthewillow on tumblr via bendingthewillow.tumblr.com/po…


FURTHERMORE.  If people don't say that they have aspergers/autism... HOW are they supposed to speak for their rights?  Would you rather everyone allow themselves to be unjustly trampled on just so that you can feel that nobody is different from you, and that nobody can make you look bad?  Selfish.  This whole thing sounds really condescending.


May you live a long life and please educate yourself (⊙‿⊙✿)

Asperger's isn't very rare anymore. We're getting better at diagnosing it because we can recognize more symptoms especially in girls.

And about self diagnosing? Not everyone can afford a professional diagnosis. Therapy does cost money.

Who are you to say I don't have it. As long as I can remember I have a had this series of bizarre behavior, peculiar impulses, trouble with social interactions, difficulty reading emotions, obsessive behavior, short attention span, selective memory, literal thinking, need I go on. after I was diagnosed is become painfully obvious that I don't think differently then most people but my mind is wired differently then most people.

I don't think that's necessarily has to be a bad thing or something to be ashamed of. What is wrong with being proud with being different. In fact it is kinda a Nazi ideologue to think that Aspergers (or any mental disorder or condition) is some thing to be ashamed of.

Also Aspergers is not that rare not including myself I no at least 5 people who have Aspergers (and to be clear I know then in real life.)

Sure the a lot of poses out there but it's that way with everything really.

Not to be rude or anything. But Aspergers is a type of Functioning Autism. Just having High Functioning Autism does mean you have Aspergers. Of course your still not "normal" either way.


I have Aspergers myself. And I'm sorry if this sounded rude. I'm not trying to be mean.
