The Internet is Suburbia, Except Worse

As a social scientist, one of my focusses of study has been social and physical infrastructure and how those affect human psychology and sociology. Specifically, one of my greater fixations is on the many facets of urban planning and how the design of the systems and topography within a human environment affects the people withinContinue reading “The Internet is Suburbia, Except Worse”

Subgenders within Genders: Tomboys, Tomgirls, Betas, and Alphas

In recent years, the transgendered have become a major recognized identity but they are a tiny fraction of the population. As far as gender differences are concerned, subgenders are much more important because people belong to subgenders within their cisgender genders much more than are fully transgender. I am a male so I will mostlyContinue reading “Subgenders within Genders: Tomboys, Tomgirls, Betas, and Alphas”

Social Chernobyl: How Weirdos Become Toxic

As has been mentioned in my earlier articles, among the greatest issues being on the spectrum are vigilantes arising after being offended. After people are offended, they usually ghost and never return. This is perplexing, why? Whenever I’m in a friendship or some other type of relationship, I am aware that I am a singleContinue reading “Social Chernobyl: How Weirdos Become Toxic”

Being Seen as Retarded: The Problems of the Conflation of Both Ends of the Spectrum

There is an entire political movement on the high end of the spectrum and the primary aim of that movement, more than anything, is to delineate us from the low end of the spectrum. If Autism Speaks, renamed itself, Low Autism Speaks, then they wouldn’t offend the large number of autistic people who currently loatheContinue reading “Being Seen as Retarded: The Problems of the Conflation of Both Ends of the Spectrum”

The Almighty NIMBY: The Micro-Populists That Destroy Life

                As a political activist, I have to recognize that people’s lives are most affected by their immediate surroundings and that means local politics. Yet, local politics is a very difficult arena to make a change in primarily due to a single factor, NIMBYs. The term NIMBY means not-in-my-backyard. Effectively, they oppose any change toContinue reading “The Almighty NIMBY: The Micro-Populists That Destroy Life”

Why I’m Not a Heathen: Most Aspies are Atheists so Why am I not?

Most aspies are atheists and this is attributed to our logical and rational worldview. Yet, I would counter that the reason most aspies don’t believe in God is more a matter of disposition than logic. As it says in my info, I am of the minority of aspies that is extroverted and while I doContinue reading “Why I’m Not a Heathen: Most Aspies are Atheists so Why am I not?”

Sadistic Pedophilia in the Deep South

There are, undoubtedly, few phrases better used as click-bait than that one. I extend my gratitude to the gullible consumers whose eyes watered at the sight of that headline. When debates about corporal punishment occur, they occur without science and without a full grasp of what the situation is. To my logical Asperger’s mind, theContinue reading “Sadistic Pedophilia in the Deep South”

Fukuyama’s Dystopia: The Needless History at the End of History

We live in a world where unprecedented volumes of information exist yet where that information is stove-piped and most people, including people with power, aren’t educated enough to use that information to increase human welfare or reduce human suffering in the maximum possible way. This means physical science but also means psychological and social science,Continue reading “Fukuyama’s Dystopia: The Needless History at the End of History”

Dethroning Regina George: How to Redistribute Social Capital

Before on this website, I have written articles about the realities of being bullied for a disability, many of which people wouldn’t guess. Within those, I wrote about how anti-bullying policies tend to not be effective for various reasons. First, in Circus Monkey bullying that the bullying is consensual and to separate the victim andContinue reading “Dethroning Regina George: How to Redistribute Social Capital”

Liberty or Death: My Rebel Days at Wando High School

                As I say in the introduction to my comedy page, there are two equal and opposite approaches to politics: comedy and tragedy. If the homepage to this website is an indication, I’m childish enough to rewrite tragedies. I usually write happy endings and I conduct my life with a defiant silliness. It’s not justContinue reading “Liberty or Death: My Rebel Days at Wando High School”
