There’s already a person on Wrongplanet who uses the name “Autisticmalcontent.” I don’t know whether he/she uses the name as a joke, or seriously. Anyway, I can’t use the name because it’s taken. And I wish I’d thought of it myself.

But an autistic malcontent is certainly one of the things I’ve always been, even through all the years I did my best to hide it most of the time. What degree of Asperger’s might that be, I wonder, when you CANNOT, no matter how you try, find most people worth having? When you cannot, like Donna Williams, desire a truce between yourself and the non-autistic majority. When the conflicting battles she describes to keep the world out while at the same time letting some of it in only gets harder with age, and the desire to keep just aobut the whole neurotypical world out only gets stronger.
