You are starting to sound a bit..... Illogical. What with all the anger and stuff.
Someone had to say it.
"Vulcan logic" is BS because without emotion you don't have a lot of reason to preserve or better anything. I never really liked it. It's not why I use the word "logic" a lot.
Given Rhombus wasn't even talking about this forum, I see a lot of mentions about what "I'm" expected to do. Which is odd, because I didn't get that vibe from this. All I got was a sense of frustration at 1. How the internet is and 2. How people are rarely willing to be understanding of the realities of discussion on the internet.
Do you think you may be analyzing this a little too deeply, BMW?
That's pretty much it.
Okay, first of all, for someone who is supposedly very logical, you are getting awful upset. Secondly, you are once again demanding that all people should be logical, which, in addition to being a completely ILLOGICAL claim (people are not going to change to your whim), you are wanting people to change their behaviors without considering that you should try changing your own. Which, in all seriousness, is much easier than changing someone elses behavior.
Obvious contradiction here. You are expecting of me what I expect of others, only in a different way, yet are speaking out against it.
"Demanding" people be logical is ridiculous. It's like saying I'm demanding people not be rapists. Being more logical is a better thing. Them not being logical leads directly to bigotry and unfair treating of people in awkward situations. It affects me directly. They are the ones forcing their illogic on me.
My behaviour is not at fault here. Well, maybe it is, but not compared to the sheer lack of logic of others.
We should work to change that - promote critical thinking and reasoned though. Trying to change myself would be admitting defeat.
Also, comparing people with difficulty in social skills to people in wheelchairs is a highly illogical comparison,
Stop using that word. You don't know what it means.
where as one is a physical inability to walk and simple respect as is deserved would be for wheelchair access, whereas learning social behavior is a learned ability and can be changed.
But, as I said, wheelchair access can be circumvented using people carrying your chair.
It's still the same comparison. Just because it can be "changed" doesn't mean the difficulty should not be recognised. Nobody with AS is completely cured. Some can barely be helped at all.
It's just a fact. Other people need to better learn to deal with AS. People with AS shouldn't have to take the blame when they're not at fault.
Once again, if you were simply having difficulty with this, I would be empathetic. Its the difference between asking and demanding.
There's nothing wrong with demanding what we should already had. Half the problem with the world is that there isn't ENOUGH demanding of rights.
Also, "100% gospel truth"? When did science EVER have gospel truth, much less 100% truth? Much less, truth?
Since AS has a specific definition the inaccuracies of other schools of science is irrelevant - AS is simply DEFINED as a wide variety of behaviours.
Indeed. The bullshit factors rose dramatically with all that spiel about logic.
That makes no sense. If you're running a forum, you need be a good decision maker, you need to have a logical thought process. How is that bullshit?
Cain, thanks for clarifying my thoughts - I wish there was a guy like you over on Boards.ie - AS makes it very difficult to communicate exactly what I mean, which makes me a prime target for people to either misunderstand or purposely twist what I'm saying.
I really am at the end of my plank with all this crap at the moment. I've got to move out of Ireland, anyway.
