As always, a beautifully articulate post on the micro-aggressions people on the Autism spectrum experience. It is mostly these experiences that have kept me from being more open about my Autistic traits/behaviors and seeking an official diagnosis. People already tend more toward not taking me seriously enough – I’m convinced it would be worse if I had an official diagnosis and was open about it. I get enough micro-aggressions as it is and can’t tolerate more right now.
