"Yes, I know the whole joke is that the character is "self-diagnosed" and is just using this as an excuse. But it's not something to joke about.   And there are people who walk around with "self-diagnosed" Aspergers who…"

"For those who have never heard of AS before, and those who say that I'm overreacting, I suggest you take the time to educate yourself.   Read: only uneducated people could possibly disagree with me. "
