So far, I've only dated autistics. The first one was moderately autistic. He had asperges. He came to my house and would bring videos and wouldn't even ask me what I wanna watch. Also he didn't like being touched and didn't wanna kiss me. After we broke up I decided that I don't wanna date any other autistics. I don't date people who won't let me even touch them. It's bad enough no kissing but not one touch is a foul! Not only that, also b/c I wanted to live in the real world. Just b/c I'm autistic it doesn't mean I should only date autistics. My mom accused me of being prejudice against autism. Considering the fact that it's worse to be prejudice against something when you have it too. Like Hitler, who was prejudice against people who aren't blonde and blue eyed and he wasn't like that either. More importantly, who I date is my choice and everyone has a type. Some people are more interested in hispanics, or maybe people who are mildly retarded, or overweight etc. Even my mom can't make me date someone I don't want. I mean, it's not what she was doing, but if I was going to date an autistic, I'd rather date someone who has P.D.D. and super high functioned. Like me. Obviously if it's a girl. I'm a lesbian now, but if I liked guys still, I wouldn't date any autistic guy whatsoever. But I don't but I'd rather date people who are at least around my IQ. That's just me. [Smile]

Certainly who you date is your choice. From my understanding, it is perfectly okay to acknowledge preferences and to wish to date only certain types of people as long as the motivation is right. Wanting to date a certain type because of attraction, desires (like wanting a relationship where there is not a problem with touching), etc. is very different than not wanting to date people because of prejudice. It seems to me that the reason you prefer not to get romantically involved with people with autism is because of the complications that brings, not because of some bias against such people.

Hey, Ste-Funnie, I'm a little confused about what your post is about -- what are you looking for our input on? It's certainly an interesting topic, and you've made some interesting and good points, but I couldn't figure out what question you had for us. I think Heather has mentioned to you before about giving a clear question/making a thread open for other people's input. Could you try rephrasing this one in a way that makes it more open to discussion, or makes your question clearer, please? Thank you [Smile]

Onionpie: My post was about me being mad that my mom had to accuse me of being prejudice. I hate when people call me prejudice, sexist, racist, sizest, etc. b/c the truth is I am not and have never been nor do I ever wanna be. I'm a good girl.

Also, Onionpie, I felt like my mom was telling who to date.
