I found this to be an interesting line of thinking for people who struggle with feeling 'other'.

The interview with Temple Grandin in An Anthropologist on Mars, as referred to in this short piece, is certainly worth a read.

And whilst I disagree with the description of autism in this article, I think it's also worth reading:

Temple Grandin: 'I'm an anthropologist from Mars'.

Some of us can't so easily come to terms with our sense of 'otherness'.

But we're human beings, just like everyone else.  And so we have a right to be treated as such.
