Being diagnosed with Aspergers Syndrome at the age of 25 -- I am now 33 -- I can relate massively with this article. There needs to be a time where the worldwide community needs to implement better tactics: releasing us from the culture of compliance which will enable us to feel human. There is a stigma that I have previously experienced: "you don't look autistic." I then replied, "how does one with autism look?" Education needs to strengthen in order to not experience these comments.

Thank you for your article, I look forward to reading more from you.
