If Aspergers should be renamed why not call it:
After Lorna Winger?
How about "I'm always right syndrome"
That's a funny one. Is the problem being right, or always thinking you're right? That's not exclusively autistic. There's also the Cassandra Complex, after which I named myself, which is partly about not being taken seriously.
Earlier discussion about this here. I think Wing's Syndrome was suggested My suggestion was Frankl's Spectrum or Frankl's Syndrome, after Georg and Anni Frankl who worked with Asperger (I think) before he started sending children to their deaths, and then with Leo Kanner in the USA (who abused and mistreated autistic children via institutionalisation that probably also led to early death). 'Syndrome' is a dubious word to me, because it implies several related 'symptoms' with a common underlying cause, rather than a 'constellation' or 'spectrum' of traits.
Choosing Frankl would also make us Franklies, which I thought appropriate.
Always thinking I'm right and then thinking I'm still right if someone trys to prove I'm not right lol
Isn't it "Lorna Wing"?
Ah. W(h)inger's Syndrome?
Sorry, we weren't born yesterday...
Actually, I think autistic people plan more, and hardly ever wing it.
Is it a gender-neutral term for 'wingman'? Apparently 'wingers' was a type of E tablet some years ago.
'Aspie' then becomes 'Wing-e', which is hard to say, Frankly.
Yes, it is Lorna Wing.
Wings Syndrome does have a nice ring to it (though maybe a bit deceptive sounding!)
Level 1 autism; it gives you wings! (oh, how I wish!)
Maybe we could go right back to Grunya Sukhareva (Russian who described autism in 1925)?
I've often been told that I really suk and what a sukker I can be!
Not liking wingers as it would soon be corrupted to whingers ,,as in whining and whinging about everything.
Maybe AS PER USUAL?
A liking for fact not conjecture or random guesses,” as per usual” we would correct a wrong statement as it is wrong.
And “as per usual” we like repetitive or the same routines in many things within our control.
So “ as per usual” I have over stated my response, and “as per usual” for me I will say take care all be kind to yourselves and my signature asperusual hug for all, x()x.
Just had a really radical thought!
what about,,,,brace yourselves,,,,,,,wait for it,,,,,,,,,Human being?
as per usual x()x Lol. ;)
