"Some on the spectrum have an ability to hyper focus, to rush through anything and work at paces that are considered [bonkers]. They can do this to the exclusion of literally everything else in their lives."
Úff, this is all too familiar. Still dealing with the aftermath of working like this for many years at a music streaming startup that became a big heckcorp, and realising too late what it was doing to me.
Before jumping into someone else's mentions:
✅ Am I being contrarian?
✅ Do I already have a relationship with this person, or am I being inappropriately familiar?
✅ Am I "ironically" doing exactly what this person just said not to do?
✅ Am I derailing another legitimate discussion in order to get on my own favourite hobby-horse or to one-up this person in my knowledge of social issues?
✅ Am I saying "Are you surprised?" when they're disappointed?
✅ Am I providing unsolicited advice?
So odd to see commenters on orange site frame the EU's regulation/taxation of Google/Amazon/etc. as "attacks on US companies" when they're really multinational conglomerates without a bone of reciprocal nationalism between them (that also have whole public relations staffs who get paid to defend them).

Look — I'm a homosexual binary trans man who enjoys vaginal penetration with his trans male partner. Sexually, it is my lifeblood. I love it. I'm not dysphoric about it, I've made my peace with it.
I've been out as a trans man for seven years. I've been a member of many trans-focused forums. I've obsessively read about testosterone and its effects for years because I wanted it so badly.
I hadn't seen the word atrophy until sometime around 2014 or 2015. Even then, no one spoke about there being a way to avoid it or treat it. I came across it from trans men who were lamenting the pain they were having, how they couldn't enjoy using that part of themselves sexually anymore...
and they had no idea there was something to be done about it. They didn't mention it. None of the sympathetic responses mentioned it. In fact, a lot of the responses were from pre-T guys who were scared it was gonna happen to them too.
So I too, in turn, had no idea there was something to be done about it, and I too had to resign myself to this pain that would inevitably come because of testosterone.
I thought vaginal penetration was something I'd have to say goodbye to until *MAY 2019*. I didn't realise this could be dealt with until five years later. This year. As an adult. Two fucking months ago.
No one on this god forsaken Earth can tell me I didn't do my research, didn't look in the right corners.
