A disproportionate number of autistics are in prison for child pornography

When a disproportionate number of blacks are in prison for drug charges, there is a huge outcry. People march in the streets saying “Black lives matter!” What many do not realize is that there is also a disproportionate number of autistics in prison for certain crimes. No one marches in the street when that happens. One crime that we see many autistics in prison for is child pornography. Autistics only comprise one to two percent of society, yet half the people in prison for that crime have some form of autism.

Let me explain what child pornography is. It is the images of underage people in sexual displays. It is pictures or videos of minors being inappropriately sexually dealt with. In essence, it is pictures of a crime. For no other crime is it illegal to possess pictures of it, and we already have many public images of murder scenes, people being murdered, and terrorist attacks happening. So why should images of sex crimes be illegal? Even when possessing images of other crimes is illegal, for no crime are the enforcement or penalties as severe as for child pornography.

Autistics are often attracted to minors simply because they are more on their social development level. They also often have OCDs that cause them to seek out certain things in large amounts and fetishes that cause them to have unusual interests. All this makes them ripe for consuming child pornography. However, autistics are NOT any more likely to molest children in person than the general population is. In fact, they are less likely to do so. Any sex with another person involves touching that the autistics often have an aversion to. Sexual relationships and trafficking involve social skills that autistics often do not have. Yet when it comes to child pornography- possessing IMAGES of people in sexual performances- we are willing to lock them up for years even if they are otherwise completely harmless to society.

Child pornography might be disgusting, but locking up harmless autistics in an environment much better suited for dangerous criminals than for autistics with sensitivity issues is all the more disgusting. Many judges themselves have acknowledged that the defendants standing before them who have committed these acts are otherwise harmless, but they are willing to sacrifice an autistic person just so they can teach society a lesson. If you are going to put someone in jail, put someone who has actually molested someone. Put someone who is actually a danger to society. Don’t put someone with a disability who merely looked at images just to teach other people a lesson.

People have told me not to talk about this subject. They said it could make me sound like a pervert. However, I do need to talk about this. When an injustice happens to my people, in this case the autistic community, I need to address it. It is the taboo of speaking out against this that enables lawmakers to enact ever stricter laws that put people in prison for longer terms, and that enables judges to give out these punishments. Because people have talked about overly harsh penalties for drug use among drug addicts, these penalties have been relaxed and drug addicts are dealt with more humanely now. It is time we do the same with pornography addicts, no matter how uncomfortable people feel talking about this subject.

Elon Musk does not represent the Aspergeric community

In last night’s monologue on Saturday Night Live, Elon Musk claimed he has Asperger’s. I figured it out when his monotone speech patterns first came out and then he admitted that he has Asperger’s. Sorry to tell you this, Elon Musk, but you do not represent the Aspergeric community. Yes, Mr. Musk does make atypical associations that are typical of people with that condition. Like me, he likes giving unusual names, such as the super awkward names he gave to his children. He is someone who thinks differently. He sees some aspects of the world not the same way most neurotypicals do. However, he does not have the sensitivities. Most people on the autism spectrum have strong sensitivities and aversions to certain things- noise, smells, etc. Musk appears to exhibit none of these. I regularly got kicked out of schools and other places for my behavior due to my sensitivities and often had to go to special education, an experience shared my many on the autism spectrum. I do not see any of these things about Elon Musk.

On the contrary, Musk has me worried. Some of the things he is proposing or working on will have a detrimental effect on some on the autism spectrum. As I explained when I started this blog, I am electrosensitive. I am highly sensitive to certain electronics, especially wireless devices that emit radiation. Not all people on the spectrum have that sensitivity. Many of them spend long hours on their screens or headphones to tune out the world around them. However, because the neurodivergent brain works differently, people on the spectrum are more likely to be electrosensitive than the typical person. The satellites Musk is sending into space and the infrastructure he is trying to build will saturate the planet with electromagnetic radiation and make it more difficult to escape to more remote areas to avoid this radiation. Also, most of us on the spectrum do not really like changes. I am not talking about solar cars or the renewable energy musk is trying to build. These are all good changes that will do a lot of good for the environment without changing our lives significantly. What I am concerned about is some of the things he is rumored to be planning (though I am not sure how true the rumors are), such as implanting microchips into people’s brains. That will have a devastating effect on the fundamentals of humanity, and as a person with Asperger’s who is not too fond of major changes, I would not want to live in a world where a person’s humanity is altered.

Do not think that because the wealthiest person in the world has Asperger’s it means people with this condition have made it or that Asperger’s is not a significant disability. There are still many with Asperger’s who are struggling to make a living because people will not accept them or make the right accommodations for them. Musk also appeared to be exaggerating some of his symptoms on last night’s monologue. I am not saying he does not have Asperger’s. He probably has a very mild case and does not significantly exhibit all the symptoms associated with the condition. If he had all these symptoms, he would not be anywhere near as successful as he is.

Why youth should be friends with adults with disabilities

I have long believed that it would be wonderful to get youth to be friends with disabled adults. Not youth with other disabled youth, not adults with other disabled adults. We need those things also, but we also should have abled youth befriending disabled adults. Here are all the reasons why that would make the world a better place and why, despite some strong concerns people may have about youth befriending problem adults, this should be done.

Children are more pure hearted than adults

Adults can be very judgmental about people who are different. Children, and even teenagers, not so much. Adults who work with disabled people often see themselves as semi professionals and speak down to the disabled. Children who encounter disabled people are not like that at all. They see the disabled as their friends and they don’t speak down to them.

When children are taught compassion for people who are different, it stays with them for the rest of their lives

When children are taught that certain people are inferior to others, they carry these ideas for the rest of their lives. However, when not only are they taught to value people who are different, but also to embrace those who are different, they carry that on for the rest of their lives. When these children become the adults who run our society, they are more likely to aim for society being more equal and friendly to the disabled.

Bonds that start when one is a youth are more likely to carry on into adulthood.

The younger one is when a friendship begins, the stronger and more long lasting the bond is. A friendship formed in one’s formative years is lifelong, while one formed in one’s adult years is often disposable. And it does not need to be that both people were in their formative years when the friendship began. The strongest adult friendships I have now are with people whom I first met when they were teenagers or preteens and I was a bit older. Because of my disability I never got to have any good friends in elementary through high school and thus do not have any good friends from that era now.

Disabled adults are often more on the same level as youth than other adults

I do not want to assume that all disabled adults are childlike- that is not true. However, adults who have an intellectual or developmental disability often do not have the full adult maturity in social skills. As such, they find it easier to relate to children and teenagers than they do to other adults. People often are apprehensive to youth befriending adults because of the undue power adults may exercise over the youth. However, when it comes to disabled adults, the abled adults also have power over them. By letting the less powerful adults be friends with youth who are less powerful than abled adults, it evens things out.

It rights a wrong many disabled people have experienced

Disabled adults often suffered a lot of exclusion growing up, and as a result never got to have meaningful friendships with other youth. As adults, the disabled have better social skills and likely live in a world a bit more accepting of disability than when they were growing up, but telling them that they now have to befriend other adults and leave youth alone does not work. If you never got to have meaningful friendships with youth, you are not going to be easily able to have meaningful relationships with adults later on in life, especially if you have low social skills. Even if you do succeed in adult relationships as an adult, you may still be traumatized by having been denied a childhood. Allowing adults to be friends with youth rights a wrong the adults have faced. It gives them an opportunity to live a youth they never got to have, and one they should not be denied for the rest of their lives just because they grew up with parents who did not believe in inclusion or at a time when society did not believe in inclusion.

Many disabled adults will never get to have their own children

If adults want to bond with children and teenagers, as many adults do, they can do it with their own children. However, most adults with intellectual or developmental disabilities will never get to have their own children. Marriage and relationships for us are much more difficult than the are for the rest of society and that means less of an ability to have children. Even when we do find someone to have children with, we are at a greater risk of having them taken away from us even if we are loving parents. And many disabled adults, myself included, do not want to have their own children. As a person with autism, noises and smells of little children are a huge problem for me and I would not want to have to spend ten years of my life surrounded by these things. Even if we like children, we might not want or be able to be with them all the time, which is what parenting requires. Letting disabled adults befriend youth but not being their full time caregivers makes things more equal for those adults who may be unable to raise their own children but who nevertheless still love youth and will not harm them.

Young people bring joy to many

Especially when they are not staring at their phones and cutting themselves off from everyone around them. When young people have interactions with others, they brighten their day. The disabled and the elderly often have dreary solitary lives, but when other people full of energy and simple compassion come to engage with them it makes all the difference in their moods.

We should not have a culture of fear regarding adults interacting with youth

Whenever the media talks about adults interacting with youth that are not their own children or close relatives, it is often about adults who molest or otherwise abuse youth. While unfortunately there are people out there who will do that, the vast majority of interactions between adults and youth are positive ones. These include mentoring relations, as well as cases of youth befriending disabled or homeless adults who otherwise have no friends. Unfortunately, because of the emphasis placed on the negative relations between adults and youth, there is a lot of prejudice against the positive ones also. And because of this prejudice, many positive adult-youth connections that can happen do not happen. This needs to change, as should happen with every prejudice our society has that negatively affects some people.

What I am proposing

A Best Buddies type organization that will connect compassionate youth with disabled adults. Namely we will focus on people on the autism spectrum, people with other intellectual/ developmental disabilities, the homeless, and elderly people without adequate family and social connections. The youth will be of middle and high school age, along with some college aged people and upper elementary schoolers, as at these ages people are young enough to be pure hearted but old enough to have a certain level of maturity. Personally I do not regret missing out on age similar friendships the first ten years of my life. I never liked noisy and immature kids of that age, and the social skills developed in that age are very easy to develop at any stage of life and with people of any age.

The interactions will involve doing activities together or even just talking with one another.  Also I would like the youth participants, especially the older youth, to include the disabled adults in some of the activities with their friends. My goal would be to have the interactions occur in as least restrictive of an environment as society and the youth’s parents will allow.

We will, however, take safety precautions to ensure the safety of both the youth and the adults. All adults will be background checked to ensure they are not violent, predatory, or in any way likely to harm the youth. This will include a criminal background check as well as a statement from someone who knows the disabled adult well to verify that person is not of risk to others. The youth will also be screened to make sure they are compassionate and not likely to harm the disabled adults. The parents will need to approve of their child participating in this program, and will also be asked to meet the disabled adult to know what that person is made of. This program will greatly benefit both youth and adults, both people with a disability and those without. I very much hope this program can come into fruition without the prejudiced and fearmongering crowd defeating us.

Mask laws

As someone on the autism spectrum, I have a major issue with physical discomfort. As such, I have long been opposed to mandatory seat belt laws, and helmet laws especially. With face masks, I am inclined to take the same position. However, this case is different. While seat belt and helmet laws are designed to protect the individual through a government mandate, something I am generally opposed to as a civil libertarian, face masks are designed to protect others from a contagious disease they might not consent to getting. As such, I do believe some face mask laws are necessary in places that have a high rate of Covid, but these laws should be kept to a minimum.

If a business refuses to let you in because you are not wearing a mask, it is their right, but unless it is in a place with very high rates of people with the virus, the government should not mandate them to require that people wear masks. In places with high virus rates, the local and state governments may require masks, but only in crowded places where physical distancing from others is not practical. However, I do not approve of governments mandating people to wear masks whenever they are out of their houses or their cars. Such laws go too far. It might be necessary to require people to wear masks when there are many others around them, but it is not necessary when you are walking down an empty street at a far distance from others. If I go into a store, I am fine with putting on a mask. I usually don’t stay there for much more than ten minutes and if I only have to put my mask on for that long I am fine. However, if I am told that I need to wear a mask whenever I am within a certain city, even if I am outdoors not surrounded by others, I am not fine with that. That entails me to put on a mask for too long  of a period.

And there is another major issue with masks, especially for people on the autism spectrum. Masks make it harder to understand others. Some of us speak unusually, so others need to rely on our lips to understand what we’re saying. With our lips covered, that ability is gone. Also, masks muffle the sounds coming out of one’s mouth, so if you are hard of hearing it makes it that much more difficult to hear others, and you can’t read one’s lips anymore to compensate. More importantly, facial expressions convey much in what people are saying, and with the bottom half of the face covered, it makes this understanding much more difficult. Those of us on the autism spectrum have had to spend years working very hard on developing the ability to understand these facial expressions. With us no longer being able to see them in our daily interactions, our social skills are at risk of eroding and we are at risk of becoming more disabled than we already are. If mask wearing only lasts a couple months, or is only required in crowded places and not whenever we meet up with friends or family, then we can recover. However, if if it lasts a whole year or more, which I fear might be the case, we will not be able to recover so easily. Furthermore, prolonged mask requirements might make society permanently change the way it communicates. This will not be good for anyone, as the new way society communicates might be less effective than the old one. However, this will especially not be good for people on the autism spectrum who had to spend years honing their social skills and now will need to start all over for a new set of rules.

Once again, temporary mask wearing may and probably should be required when infection rates are high, but there should be a limit to these requirements. Negative consequences of wearing masks have to be weighed against the positive ones without politically polarizing the issue and without trolling people over their mask views.

“Dirty old man”. Why this is a harmful notion.

In our society, if you are a young man, it is considered acceptable if you go after young women to hang out with them, befriend them, and perhaps pursue them as romantic partners. Once you are older, however, that is no longer acceptable. Just because of your age, that is no longer acceptable. I am 38 years old and for men my age it is expected that we be married and likely have children. If we are not married, it is expected we get married soon. While it is more acceptable now for people to not get married than it was in the past, our society is not built to suit older people who either are unable or choose not to get married.

There is the notion that older men who do not get married and like to spend time with younger women are perverts, up to no good, “dirty old men”. Assuming this thing about someone just because of one’s age is just as prejudicial as assuming negative things about someone because of the color of that person’s skin. If we hang out with women our age, society is a bit more accepting, but most women our age are already married, and that is especially true for the nice ones. Even if we just want to be friends with them, between their spouses and their children they do not have much time for other people. While there are some good older women who do not get married- I don’t want to be prejudiced against anyone because of one’s age- the pool for us is very limited. The same is true in seeking out male companions, as most men our age are already married or in long term relationships. And if you are not married or in a relationship, you need to have several casual friends with whom you can spend time and talk about your issues. While that is acceptable for younger men, it is not too acceptable for men my age. Maybe for women it is a bit more acceptable. Single women have long been admired as strong people, and it is quite acceptable for them to have casual male friends no matter what the woman’s age is. But for men, that is not the case.

Some people ask me why do I not go with the flow and get married. That might be a good idea. If I find the right wife it would be a net positive. However, realistically speaking that it not very likely to be the case. Marriage involves a lot of compromising, and compromising on some major things that I don’t want to give up on. A wife will most likely want to have children, something that I do not want. I never liked noisy and dirty little kids, even when I was one myself, and I still cannot bear spending an hour around them. I am not going to spend ten years plus of my life being around them because that is what my wife wants. And while there are some who do not want to have children, they will most likely want dogs. That is another thing I will not give up on. I refuse to let any dog come up and lick me, and the dogs my wife would want to have would most likely want to do that. There are some people who for love are going to be willing to make major sacrifices on the things they do not like, but there are many who aren’t. Most People like me with Asperger’s are not going to willing to do that. And neither should people be compelled to do make these sacrifices and get married. There is a reason why a lot of marriages end in divorce.

Why do we not have many people protesting the “dirty old man” notion, you may ask. It is because more older men do not have it so bad. Being compelled to get married is not nearly as bad as being kept down because you are black or a woman. Also, most older men are in a position of privilege. They can use their positions of power to coerce others to spend time with them if their marriage is not stable, and many times they even remain married for little more reason than that it makes them seem like less of a threat.

Some of these actions did definitely need to be stopped. And maybe the “dirty old man” notion was somewhat necessary to delegitimize the nefarious actions of some of these men in an age before #metoo. However, if men are going to stop doing these things, we should get rid of the motion that because men who have more seniority have more power men also become more harmful just because they get older.

And we need to get rid of the “dirty old man” notion even if men in power will not stop what they are doing. While there will be some in power whose power increases as they get older, there will be disabled adults who have almost no power even as they get older. Yet the “dirty old man” notion lumps them in the same category as more powerful people and becomes prejudiced against the weaker people just because of their ages. And while the powerful men will still be able to get away with many of their relationships, even when they are nefarious, the older disabled people will be looked down upon even when their relations are innocent. It’s time to rename “dirty old men” into what really is the problem- “sexual harassers”, “sexual exploiters”, “sexual predators in power”, but not a term that implies someone is up to no good because of age.

When I Was Eleven

When one is around eleven or twelve years of age, one is intelligent enough to understand what is wrong and right in the world, but one still sees things with a black and white child’s eye and one still has not developed the ability to disregard emotions. This is especially true for intelligent people with Asperger’s. When I was eleven, there were many injustices that bothered me. Children being forced into poverty because the parent who makes money, and not the child, committed a crime for which the parent needs to go to jail. Palestinian families having their house bombed because one person in the family plotted a terrorist act. Children being forced to undergo medical treatments with grave side effects when adults are able to opt out. Innocent people being held without bail before they are proven guilty. Not everyone saw these as injustices, my parents being among them, but I saw them as injustices. These things were very unfair and people should not have let them happen.

I know of one other person with Asperger’s who became highly disturbed at age eleven because of an injustice she learned about- Greta Thunberg. When her class watched a video of the negative effects of climate change and learned countries are not doing enough to stop it, she became so disturbed that she stopped talking for some time. Maybe I did not stop talking, on the contrary I kept being up these issues and tried in vain to convince my parents to agree with me. There is another difference between Greta’s parents and mine. Greta’s parents, who at first were skeptical, eventually sided with her views. Not only that, but they changed their lifestyle to better embrace the things her daughter held dear. They largely stopped eating natural resource intensive meat and even stopped flying, despite the impact it had on the mother’s opera career. My parents were not like that. Not only did they not change their lifestyle (which I would not have expected them to), but they shamed me. They shamed me for talking about them all the time. They complained to my behavorists about this. While they did not quite shame me for my views, they strongly disagreed with me and told me that I did not understand the whole picture. But I did understand enough. I understood that these things were not fair, and as such maybe better approaches that were more fair were needed. Because Greta’s parents were so highly supportive of her views, Great is now such a passionate activist who gets the world to listen. I, on the other hand, was pressured to conceal my views and to stop thinking about them.

My parents would probably like to argue that they were right in opposing me because, unlike Greta, I also had behavioral problems. I am not sure what problems Greta might have had at school (though I would imagine it was less than me because she is female), but because I had more problems at school I got treated worse and thus had even more of an understanding of the suffering of people than Greta could have. I am sorry to say this, but Greta is a privileged teenager from a country that will be one of the least negatively affected by climate change. Some might also say the things I was concerned about were not important issues. Well, it depends on who you ask. There are many people who say that climate change will not happen, or that its consequences will not be very serious. People might say that climate change is less of a controversial issue than the things I was most concerned with. Well, as I stated above, climate change is also very controversial.

This opposing did not only occur when I was eleven, but continued into my adulthood as I focused on other things, such as criminals’ rights. For example, I was very much against forcing sex offenders to reveal themselves to their neighbors and to continue punishing them after they completed their prison sentence. I saw criminals, including sex offenders, as human beings who made a mistake and that, while they maybe should have been punished, should go free after having served their time and should be treated with mercy and dignity. Whenever I brought this up to my mother, she would refuse to talk about it and told me I should not even talk about it with anyone else.

I still by and large believe in the human rights I believed in when I was eleven, though they are not quite top of my list now. I was happy when people spoke out against separating children from their parents at the border and against deporting people who came to the United States illegally as children. Children should not be punished for things they did not decide to do but that the adults in their lives did. And please, mom and dad, stop opposing me for my views, and do not tell me not to talk about them, even if they are controversial. Try to understand my more just views and to side with me. So dad, don’t tell me that what Trump is doing at the border is right. And to everyone else who thinks otherwise about my views, please try to be more understanding.

And I hope Greta keeps up the good work. Her fight is very noble. This fight, as well as the opinions I used to have and still have, shows that people with Asperger’s do have empathy. Even if we do not express it in the neurotypical ways, the fact that we have these opinions about others who suffer unjustly shows that we do have empathy. As such, having our views should be encouraged. By shaming me for talking about these things, I was also made to feel more ashamed of myself, and I was told that I was more selfish- and less human- than I actually was.

My Struggles with Companionship

Companionship Is a Basic Human Right

Food, clothing, shelter, and medical attention are widely considered basic human rights that should be guaranteed to all people. Without food, we die. Without adequate clothing and shelter, we fall ill and can also die. Without medical attention, illnesses we have are bound to get worse and lead to death. But I would like to add another item that is equally important and that many people on the autism spectrum lack- companionship. While the effects of a lack of companionship are not as obvious as the lack of the other items, a lack of companionship can be just as serious. When people do not have friends they can relate to or family and others to take care of them, they can go into deep depression, and study after study has shown that both loneliness and depression can lead to a decline in both mental and physical health, and this in turn can also lead to early death, either by complications from a disease or by suicide.

We have largely solved the problems of lack of food and clothing, at least in the developed world. The prices of these items are low enough where even the poorer people can get an adequate supply of them. Maybe not everyone can afford caviar and Prada, but poorer people in this country are not so poor where they can only afford simple grains and only one meal a day or (with a few exceptions) where they do not have warm clothes for the winter. Housing is expensive in many cities, but most people can still find adequate shelter if they select a place in a cheaper area, move to a smaller house, or get affordable housing. With medical attention, we are not quite there yet, but we do have many Democrats (and some Republicans) on our side. With companionship, however, we are far from there.

We regularly have food and clothing drives to ensure less fortunate people do not go without them. Many of us also openly give food to beggars, seeing them as people who need our help. Many of us even intentionally go to feed the homeless if the local jurisdictions do not ban the practice, and so that there won’t be homeless people lacking shelter (or at least fewer people in that situation), we create more affordable housing. With companionship, we do not have anything like this, and when less attractive people beg others for companionship, they are often more likely to accuse them of harassment than seeing them as people in need. One might ask oneself why we still have many cases of harassment. The answer is that we do not have support for companionship lackers. Sir Thomas More, living in a time where food was not seen as a human right, wrote that no penalty, no matter how harsh it is, will stop a person from stealing bread if that is the only way one can get it. Because we do have support now for those who cannot afford food, food theft is only a rare occurrence.

What that I am suggesting is that we have companionship drives now. The same school and religious groups that now deliver food to the homeless and volunteer at soup kitchens should volunteer directly with people with disabilities who lack companionship. This volunteering should be done by nonjudgmental people who see themselves as friends rather than as professionals working with them. Furthermore, the matchings should not be restricted to the respective age range and gender of the volunteers, as many people get along better with another age group or gender better than they do with their own and when people are exposed to others who are in a different category they gain a greater understanding of people. The volunteers should go to lunch with their clients on a regular basis and also do other activities with them that they may enjoy. The volunteers should also introduce their clients to their friends and family so that the clients will feel like they are part of their circle and not excluded. Likewise, the clients should also introduce the volunteers to people in their circle. If we have this, the world will be a much better place.

Someone who did not agree with me on this issue once asked me if sex should also be considered a human right. My answer is no. The negative effects seen by a lack of sex are not the same as the ones caused by a lack of companionship. Furthermore, declaring sex as a human right opens the door to a lot of abuse. It can, for example, allow a rapist to get away by saying that having sex is a human right. Furthermore, rapists and sexual predators commit their crimes because they are violent, not because they lack companionship. There is a major difference between those individuals and ones who beg for companionship.

-The Aspergeric Free Spirit

Who am I?

I am white, male, college educated, and have a good source of money (at least for now). This makes some people think that I am privileged and that I have nothing to complain about. However, I also have Asperger’s, so I am not quite as privileged as you may think. We do have a growing awareness for this condition, but despite this we do not get enough support from society and we struggle. We struggle with finding jobs that match our skill and education levels, we struggle with making meaningful relationships, and while people are becoming more accepting of the condition per se, they are not becoming more accepting of the various traits that I and others have that may be caused by Asperger’s. Being sensitive to touch, I have a huge problem with dogs trying to come up an lick me. I also befriend people in unorthodox manners because that works better for me. With both these and other things, I found people who were highly reactionary to my ways, and some of these people have greatly hurt me. When I try to explain these and other things to friends of mine, not everyone is understanding.

People are also not always willing to accommodate me either. For example, many dentists have refused to treat me because I would not let them do a painful X-ray, even though the cleanings that I was trying to get did not require X-rays. I also am electrosensitive, and as such I cannot be around cell phones and the radiation that they give out. In recent years, this has greatly limited where I can go to and has caused issues with peers who are glued to their phones.

I am not using my real name on this blog, as we are not a society that accepts all forms of speech. While the constitution and the  legal courts still guarantee us the right to free speech, society does not. Whenever someone says something controversial in public, that person is immediately vilified. And the situation is getting worse. Four years ago, I started writing a book about my life. It came out to 355 pages once it was finished two years later. That book was to become my source of income with me unable to find a job otherwise. I was hoping to go on tour with the book to talk about the struggles I had in my life. However, since I wrote the book society has become less open to free expression and as such I put the book on hold. I cannot publish the book without risking being verbally attacked by commentators and ostracized by the few friends I have now. As such, I still need to depend on my parents for all my finances.

But I am not going to remain silent either. My views and my struggles are too important to ignore. Some of my views might not be in line with most of society or with mainstream media, but as we have seen through history, the views of the majority were not necessarily the most just either. So here are my views being published anonymously my me who calls himself The Aspergeric Free Spirit.
