I'm beginning to notice how overprotective and sugar-coated the world is today, or at least it is in the United States. Professional football has turned into a game of pansies trying as much as they can to not hurt opposing players ("Roughing the Quarterback") while wearing nearly three times as...
I have a proposal. Since it now appears that bullies in Michigan have license to bully as long as they can demonstrate that this bullying stems from deep moral or religious convictions, I suggest that should their victims demonstrate that they have suffered harm from this bullying that they or...

We had a guest speaker today in church who talked about a special mission to orphans. He showed a short video on how many children worldwide are orphans or in danger of becoming orphans, and then he left us with a challenge. He said there were 5,000 orphans in Michigan and 10,000 churches. We...

(1) Focus on ability to do what society wants from us (2) Having the ability to remain sane enough to have a few thoughts of our own (3) Persist in having these thoughts when conditions are against us (4) Have the ability to transcend Many of us will not realise this...

An unnamed person diagnosed with autism (also my personal friend) in Singapore commented that Singaporeans are complacent, and keep blaming others (NTs) for their misfortune. If Singaporean parents migrate to other overseas countries for better autism services regardless of their child's...

And so, personally as an admin of an autism forum, I will open all my reasons of disagreeing with some members on having attitudes that is detrimental for the good of our forum. In the past and presently, I keep a black list of members who are not allowed to join the forum, based on past and...
I had this debate with a pro-Establishment Facebook user, True Blue Singaporean: Has Singaporean universities admitted too few students? Consider the facts: In Hong Kong, one-third of the high school level students do not get into university. In Singapore, the rate is half (if we include...
This morning when I was driving to work I heard something on the radio that I just could not believe. The Michigan Legislature has just passed an anti-bullying law that allows for "moral and religious exemptions." In other words, if a bully can prove that his or her bullying was inspired by...

You can't restrain the truth... What do censorship, Wikileaks and glasnost got to do in common? They involve governments' choice to with-hold information from the rest of the world. I do not believe in restraining the truth. This is why I refuse to write in my school blog, despite my...

As the manager of an Aspie Facebook group, I can only say: 1. My group is too bureaucratic for its small size 2. My group is too serious without enough diversions (like even what did I just eat) 3. My group is too antagonistic and hostile for those who had not experienced the 'other...

I confess: I got a conflict with a fellow user here from Singapore, stemming from a past conflict we have over our interpretations of correcting our stims - because I feel, well, that's what we are, stimming, who are you to correct us when you got stims yourself? He did tell me to stop...

In addition... It's said that a rise in autism diagnosis is followed by a fall in mental retardation diagnosis. This accounts for just 1 in 6 of thee total ASD diagnosis. The other 5 are of PDD-NOS and Aspie stuff. Is this the effects of Reaganomics? Did governmental spending cuts...

The other day my sister and I were having a conversation about religion and she mentioned that Carl Sagan had converted to Christianity on his deathbed. I said, oh, come on, now, where did you hear this? Because it seems like any time a prominent atheist dies, these stories start circulating...

Recently they launched a "no complaining" initiative at work. The idea is that we are all supposed to think positive and be happy as an unhappy workplace is bad for morale. Well, that is true enough and very few people want to be around someone who is always negative, but I am a little...

My thoughts on fellow Asians: Asian (not Asian-American) Forum W users: They just appear to be out-of-sync with the rest of the users, for some reason. One of the top 20 users in post number is an Asian, but that's about it. Asian Forum A user: Despite our conflicts, the way that forum...

I will never forget the Biblical story in the Genesis 11:1-9 that I read long ago in my secondary school days. Specifically, the Tower of Babel. I am re-reading the same book I read in secondary school all over again - and I think this really leaves us a question: how do we possibly...

I am a Singaporean by birth and I grew up there. However, visits to the People's Republic of China (PRC) amazed me. PRC is where my great-grandparents are all born. The whole country is culturally rich. Some Chinese call me a 'ermaozi', literally translated as 'son of a foreigner'...

In Singapore, where I currently live, three bookshops (including a certain Computer Book Store and a geomacy-themed book shop) will close this weekend, due to a combination of weakening demand and higher rents. In Britain, over this month, Harbour Bookshop and 2000 other book shops closed down...

If you want to be yourself, if this means breaking out of the norm while still keeping yourself bound to the external rules of society in the most comfortable way you feel, then why not be yourself? I think for the time being, the form of expression I found is in clothes. I found it hard...
