I have asperger's (technically) and nobody would ever know. Frankly, because of people like that nobody usually does know. Fuck those idiots, OP. They don't know the first thing about being human or normal.

#16 - People who have Asperberg's are super obvious, even the ones who think they're extremely high-functioning. You can say nobody would know, but chances are people who do just don't say anything because they're smart enough to recognize it doesn't impact you too negatively.

More likely you only notice the obvious ones, and have met many with it who you've never realised. Crazy idea, I know. Also it's spelt in the post you're replying to. Seriously, spellcheck.

16, not always true. Most people wouldn't say anything because we were always taught it was disrespectful to react to someone with a disability/disabilities and always treat them like people. I sat next to this guy with some sort of very obvious disability who was screaming and moving a couple of times. I never responded and just ignored because I know its something he cant control. He was very kind enough to apologize because he felt like disrespected or disturbed me and I would always tell him that its okay. Sorry, if you can't understand what I am saying...Im a little tired and sick.

Wow, crazy that I'm being criticized for a minor typo. I know how to spell it, we all make mistakes. And no, they are obvious. People with autism, Asperger's, etc. can be picked out of a crowd with no problems. Body language is so easy to read that it's not even funny.

#59 that's true, I've had a little handicapped boy walk over and start talking to me while eating the food off of my plate (mum came over to collect him straight away while apologising profusely) just had a chat with little dude, nothing more was said between us than how calamari is octopus. No harm dine so no need to say anything more

Your ignorance is comical. Aspergers, is more if a social impairment, rather intelligence. And like almost all neurological things, is that they vary in extent greatly. Honestly I see your point, but before you shade your opinion in such a definite manner, maybe fact check it.

#60 You probably wouldn't know I'm a little Autistic if you didn't know me well. I didn't know I had it for the majority of my life. Though to be fair, it wasn't so much that I didn't show symptoms/characteristics as much as they weren't thought to be because of Aspergers/Autism. It was probably one of the main reasons that I was bullied in Middle School, that my parents get mad at me so often and I have trouble making friends. I act a little weird sometimes and might say or do something inappropriate but most of the time I'm quiet and don't bring attention to myself. What's probably most noticeable is my lack of eye contact. I'd actually be impressed if you could tell just by looking at me because that means you're very observant and know what to look for.

Not everyone with a disability can't control their actions. I would know.
