If you are pre-disposed to being hurt by exchanges like today's, you ought to think twice about making malicious and unfounded allegations about people.

Have you considered running some of your stuff past someone who isn't on the spectrum before publishing it? Because much of what you say does make you look very peculiar indeed, and if you were to get advice on how to package your points and were to avoid language like "child-stealers" or "secret courts", you might make them more credible.

Instead of attacking people who don't make allowances for your autism or for the fact that you don't understand that some language is likely to make make you less credible, you should help yourself to be more believable by getting help with what you say.

Autism is often invisible and you cannot expect people to make allowances for it, especially when you are attacking them. All children in our school know that even when they don't understand the reasons for them, boundaries of behaviour do exist, and when crossed there will be consequences. Autism is not an excuse.
