Just rude - must be a trend

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Just rude - must be a trend

I was chasing Aspergers jokes today (my favourite kind) and attempted to hit WrongPlanet, to be greeted with this:

I wonder if that's based in Cambodia...

Speaking of which, can someone provide the Khmer script for the (poor) trans-lit "a-croc nah"?

they just found out, that too much brain-connections apprently are the cause of too little social-connections (autism).

see dailymail

but normally it should be the ppl with too little brain connections that happily ban others.
weird.

Certainly applies to high-functioning forms of autism such as Aspergers, although Aspergers is not recognised as a condition at the moment... give it a few months and it will be a real thing again.

its really interesting, how these aspergers try to push themselves into the autism spectrum.

generally, they are the cross opposite of an autist.

they are half baked psychopaths.

aspergers is a psychopath without the intelligence of the psychopath.

sounds a bit harsh, but its the truth.

According to who? Hadn't heard that perspective before, and the people I've met with Aspergers don't strike me that way...

they are that.

its only because the picture of the psychopath (antisocial personality disorder) was fucked up in the public (mainly by hare).

if you look at the hints and clues and researches on autism (physical / metabolic or hormonal or biochemical aspects), then you will find that aspergers biochemy is the TOTAL OPPOSITE.

sure, the aspergers (psychopaths) will do a lot, to be seen to be in the autistm-range.

its a lie.

You're talking about a spectrum, with Down's Syndrome being toward one pole and Aspergers being toward the other... different in appearance, but as I understand it the same genetic flaws (i.e. at the same DNA markers). I understand your perspective though, people with Aspergers share many of the traits of a sociopath (NOT a psychopath) in terms of lack of empathy, inwardly focussed, etc. but I think you're confusing fear of the 'abnormal' with research... got any links to peer-reviewed research?

I always thought a sociopath was the current politically correct way if referring to a psychopath?
