    It is great to encounter another hair twiddler.

    I had the habbit 'broken' when I was young. I've reverted now and couldn't care less what anyone else thinks.

    Oh gosh. Some people really get my last nerves! He didn't have to say anything at all. Whatever happened to the saying: if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all. People don't know what's going on with people, so they need to think before humiliating people. I used to twirl my hair a lot when I was younger and some people would try to get my to stop. Knowing what I know now, I can educate people about why I stim. If stimming isn't harming anyone, then other people should go about their business and leave others alone. I'll stim if I want to. I can come off harsh sometimes, but the reason is I've been through a lot and honestly have no problem putting others in their place.

    Seconded that he's just an old creep.

    I twirl my hair a fair bit and nobody has ever commented on it.

    Except my loving, supportive parents of course. I really like to stroke certain fabrics and consider myself perfectly entitled to do so when relaxing in my own home. My parents feel otherwise.
