    • In the first place, who gets to decide the framework for “social impairment”? I do not consider myself “socially impaired,” nor do many autistic people. We merely operate on a different social construct, and hence need additional help to understand and cope with the normative social domain, which in so many ways is obnoxiously colonialistic towards any different manifestation of interaction and connectivity. The oblivion and wilful ignorance on the part of normative culture towards the autistic paradigm can just as well be seen as “social impairment,” when viewed from the autistic social-sphere. Perhaps that is the answer. All humanity are “impaired” where it comes to difference, and we all need to learn how to respect diverse neurocultural norms, and operate fluidly between these.
