Autistic self-advocacy organizations, which are led and run by autistics, are a key force in the movement for autistic acceptance and autistic pride.There’s no denying the fact that coming out or identifying as queer can be difficult in a plethora of ways.During gay pride and other LGBTQ events, a rainbow flag is used featuring a white infinity symbol on a tri-colour background or a rainbow infinity symbol against a white or black background.
For example, while I would theoretically be open to dating someone with autism, I use a lot of subtle communication e.g. Well I'm autistic myself so it''d be pretty shitty of me not to date my own kind.
word choice, intonation, facial expressions, hand gestures, irony, and sarcasm. I obviously don't have a problem outright but despite being an aspie myself, I'm very sensitive and I notice that we tend to not have filters, which means I'm liable to get hurt rather often. I'm not into to him, but I think I could potentially date someone on the spectrum.
Autistic pride points out that autistic people have always been an important part of human culture. As with all forms of neurodiversity, most of the challenges autistic people face come from other people's attitudes about autism and a lack of supports and accommodations (ableism), rather than being essential to the autistic condition.
For instance, according to Larry Arnold and Gareth Nelson, many autism-related organizations promote feelings of pity for parents, rather than fostering understanding Autistic activists have contributed to a shift in attitudes away from the notion that autism is a deviation from the norm that must be treated or cured.
If a guy really likes you Aspergers isn't going to make him not like you. ;)A safe space for GSRM (Gender, Sexual, and Romantic Minority) folk to discuss their lives, issues, interests, and passions.
LGBT is still a popular term used to discuss gender and sexual minorities, but all GSRM are welcome beyond lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people who consent to participate in a safe space.
The question may be a little misleading, by no means would I assume most people would pass someone up just because he was autistic.
That's not what I'm saying, I'm asking if anyone has ever met someone who's gay who was also on the autism spectrum?
I'd let your potential partner know you have these difficulties in communication and let it happen. Now I've taught myself to filter out what I say to an extent but not everyone learns this or has progressed as far as I have. :/Oh, but I don't think I would date gay men with autism... Minor misunderstandings are part of life, as long as a guy's willing to work at communicating with me, it's fine. (Asperger's Syndrome was my diagnosis before the controversial decision to remove it from the DSM.) I honestly don't know if I would date someone who is. They all experience varying degrees of social struggles.
