Female aspie traits - List by Rudy Simone

These lists are based on my research. While others may be coming to their own similar conclusions, I based these observations of Female AS on interviews with dozens of diagnosed women of all ages and educational backgrounds, from all over the world. These traits were threads that ran throughout their information and stories, tying us all together. As usual, I do not mean to say that all women with AS will possess all of these traits and I do not like putting us in boxes, but there was a need for an easy-to-read reference. This list will certainly be expanded and revised in the future.

My Aspergers Journey | History of Bad Parties

I'm at a sort of turning point in my life for the time being; where I finally really take ownership of asperger's syndrome*. Like say "I have Asperger's Syndrome" to my family, for example (so far the only example). It may be a surprise that it is even a turning point.

Adult Diagnosis Series | Musings of an Aspie

This is a series of posts that I've come to think of as my Asperger's "origin story" or how I came to realize that I might be autistic and what happened in the wake of that realization. It's a mix of personal narrative with some advice based on what I learned from my experience.

Adult diagnosis | Autisticook

This blog started as a personal account of my journey in getting an adult diagnosis. Along the way I collected and digested so much information, so many personal accounts and so many clinical and diagnostic tools, that I thought it would be a good idea to collect those resources in one place.

Aspie Tests (autism screening tests) | Musings of an Aspie

There are quite a few online Asperger's Syndrome tests and quizzes. I thought it might be fun to take each of them and then do a little write up. That was the inspiration behind "Take a Test Tuesday," a series of posts on the screening instruments, online quizzes and other tests related to adult Asperger's and...

Article: Life as an Aspergian female | Life with Aspergers

Gavin Bollard reviews a story by/about a female with Asperger's which John Elder Robison (author of " Look me in the Eye") has posted on his blog.

"I was quite interested to read it because the female aspie is something of a mystery. Under-diagnosed and under documented, there are undoubtedly fewer female aspies than males. I'm still not convinced that they're as rare as they seem though.

Anyway, I'd encourage you to read and respond to his article; Life as an Aspergian female - a story I had to share."

Dear Hans Asperger | Katharine Annear

Sometimes, we hold on tightly to a label as it may keep us afloat in a sea of oppression. And yet, sometimes a label is the weight in the hand of an oppressor. On the 108th anniversary of his birth, Katharine Annear reflects on Dr Hans Asperger's legacy.

Self-Diagnosed | Aspergers and Me

So I have seen roughly three types of self-diagnosed people. These are rough generalities and I’m sure there are people I’m missing, but I can only speak to what I’ve seen and how I’ve categorized it all in the way that makes sense to me.

The tyranny of indistinguishability: performance | Radical Neurodivergence Speaking

A consequence of everything being about "children with autism": no one thinks about the adults. They desire desperately to make us indistinguishable from peers (using a very interesting definition) and then as soon as we meet that goal, we're allbetternow.
