I updated “Principled, Pedantic, Non-compliant Canary” with a selection from “I Overcame My Autism and All I Got Was This Lousy Anxiety Disorder: A Memoir”.
Imagine that you have a neurodevelopmental disability that gives you some challenges with social skills and possibly the occasional rigid adherence to things like truth and fairness. Chances are good that you’ve been explicitly and implicitly told that you are pedantic, rude, blunt and not considerate enough of others’ points of views for your whole life.

One thought on “”
Why yes, I’ve been told this many times. I’m not diagnosed on the spectrum so possibly I’m just rude, blunt and inconsiderate. I’ve had some success moderating this in recent years. Something I credit to old(er) age and sobriety.
