"Average" readers rarely realize a character is autistic unless the label is used. Without it, it doesn't matter how many non-stereotypical symptoms I include, because NTs only know the stereotypes.

I'm starting to wonder if the reply-guys on LinkedIn who bother engaging with me are secret masochists, because there's no way they're not getting something out of me humiliating them.
Casual pre-apology for today:
I'm not going to be very pleasant w/people who act like the OnlyFans problem is just about pornography.
It's about the people impacted. They matter.
I'm not trying to be rude because I'm sure this is an earnest ask, but I'm fairly informed on things I bother commenting on...
