Audio ONLY – A Serious Discussion About Aspie Supremacists

Neurodivergent Rebel

I learned a new term recently – Aspie Supremacist. I had an ah-ha moment this week and wanted to share my thoughts on where I think this mind-set comes from.

  1. Well, I guess I’ll never learn what an aspie supremacist is, or whether that’s something good or bad. I can’t help thinking that maybe the “audio only” discussion qualifies, since it’s accessible only to those who 1. can hear, 2. who don’t have any problems with auditory processing.

    1. I was going to say youtube has subtitles, much like computer read words for blind people. …except youtube seems to have horrible subtitles. “I just had this aha moment thinking about a skeet supremacist” and something about an athlete? I LOL’d. But actually computer programs that read words outloud for those who cannot read for whatever the reason it may be (blind) can be bad too at times. Technology just isn;t advanced I guess to support every unique human being yet. Yet…Technology can do other amazing things, sad I know. We are just about ready to start cloning humans,but we cannot translate words via the web. :/

      A aspie supremacist in short is someone who uses their diagnoses ‘Aspie’ or asperger syndrome and thinks of that diagnoses to be better than other autism diagnoses. They believe they are superior to others on the spectrum and talk down to others with autism. Basically. Kinda like what supremacy is but attach it to autism. I knew what it was before reading about it, but articles, videos explain it much better and in more detail. You can look up many articles on it as an alternative. She argued in the audio only of why aspie supremacy is bad in her opinion. If you wish when I have more time I can translate the whole audio video for you. πŸ™‚

      If interested here is a great article and read about Aspie Supremacy.

      1. Oh, I could listen if I really thought it would be worth it. But I can read a heck of a lot faster than people talk, and it’s seldom worth taking the time. Plus quality is often poor. I can hear fine, but I do have trouble processing audio, so if it’s poor quality or a person is a mumbler, I’m out of there. Thanks for the offer, though. And the summary.

  2. That’s the trouble with modern society’s fixation on conformity. Everyone is expected to fit into the system and show so-called “normal behaviour.” Those who don’t are stigmatised and must be brought into line with the herd or face ostracism. This so at odds with western notions of individuality and originality which has so enriched our society. I say long live difference. Everyone should be allowed and encouraged to be themselves.
