My imitation of my current inbox:

"Randy made fun of the physically disabled! Ha ha! Cranky cripple! Oh, Randy's making Alzheimer's jokes! Hehehe! Oh, a SIDS comic! HA!... "Putting the ass in Aspberger's'? ... that horrible, insensitive son of a bitch! I HAVE ASPBBERGER'S!"

Yeah, not everyone's freaked out - but there's been more than a few.

Dude all I did was rant about That Guy in my LJ and people freaked out because apparently I was being a bitch to Aspies. Despite the fact I never once said anything about them. So yeah, this comes as no surprise. ;)

Aspergers is the new excuse to be an asshole online. It was bipolar but that's not the cool thing anymore.

FUCK! I missed my window.

And it's doubly infuriating because I know an Aspie online. The difference between him and most other people I've seen that claim they have it is that he listens when people tell him he's being a dick.

That's how you tell the genuine article from the ones who claim it and don't have it. People who really struggle with it appreciate all the help they can get. The rest of the assholes who use it as a proverbial 'get out of consequences free' card just piss us off.

i don't think so. My bro's got Aspie's AND Bipolar AND he's an Addict.

I have seen him behave very sensitive and kind, then 30 minutes later (with no malice) pull a complete asshole move. I have known him awhile... come to the conclusion he does not comprehend what he is doing at the latter times.

Yeah, I have Aspie friends, we have a code word for when they go over the line.

And sometimes they do put the ass in Aspergers.

As an actually professionally diagnosed Aspie, I've often had to tell other self-diagnosed Aspies, "Dude, 'asshole' is not on the Autism Spectrum."
