honestly, though, an aspie is highly intelligent but lacks social skills? what is the difference between that and autistic? in fact why do they even need a name for that anyway? I know there are Rain Man types and outright social rejects, but this constant classification based on the smallest difference seems silly. it's one thing to shoot the shit and say a nerd is this, a geek is this, a dork is this, an aspie is this. but doesn't science have better things to do? I wonder if some of these kids are told they're "autistic" when they're young and then they become what they're told they are. you wonder what would happen if they were never told they "have" aspergers. it's not like they have pills for these things, do they?
