Oh, look, the "I'm a social tard, so I diagnosed myself on the net and I have Aspergers" card is being played.

You are bad at social situations, so you get a job that requires you to interact with hundreds of different people every day?

Also, Snowflake needs to man up and deal with being mocked. If he had been smart, he would have told social tard teacher "No, I didn't eat my homework, I was too busy eating your mom last night."

That's a win win scenario for Snowflake, teacher can bust his chops for being a crude smart ass because he'd have to explain that he instigated it by calling the fat student a fatass.

You don't have to be able to read people's emotions to know some things just aren't appropriate. I'm dealing with disciplinary action of a professor who made his dyslexic student read out loud to the class and then made fun of him.

Situations are a bit different as the dyslexic student is protected under ADA, but as far as I know obesity is not yet a protected class.

i dunno, my first question is, "did the student HAVE his homework?"

if not ... well, why not? DID he eat it?

Well maybe if our fat-hatred-laden modern medical industrial complex would have properly diagnosed him in the first place, he wouldn't have needed to get on the Internet to find it out himself.

I seem to recall "Did you eat it?" was not an uncommon question for even the most svelte students who showed up without their homework back in my day.

You should be glad he didn't say "our dog just died", because you would have been fired and sued and been forced to pay for years of psychotherapy to help the kid get over the emotional damage you inflicted on him.

It's different around here. So far this calendar year, a kid has pushed a teacher which resulted in a week suspension (week off), and transfer to another classroom (draconian I know). Another kid menaced another student every day, so the victim got transferred and the bully was allowed to stay.

Teachers and good kids - paying the price for shiatty parenting. Gotta love it.

It's bad enough that children are picked on by their peers. A teacher who picks on students should be fired. There is no excuse. I don't care what their "medical condition" is. There is no telling how many times this teacher picked on students and got away with it.

Is it even a real disease? Autism, I can understand, I've seen the symptoms and a couple of cousins have to live with it (one of them has a very mild version of it, the other is not so lucky, both are brothers), but Aspergers... I just want to know, honestly.

Oh, it very much is. I represent a lot of Aspergers clients. Very freakin real. I'm leery of over-diagnosing people, but I have no doubts Aspergers is real- and neither do my clients' doctors.

Oh, I'm sorry if I sounded like an ass, really. It's just that, well, it's kinda been used like a giant justification for a lot of things (Autism as well, though), so, I think you get the idea.

But yea, sorry if I sounded like a complete ass.

I disagree. It just means we haven't properly educated our citizens on eating and living healthy lifestyles. The majority of the time, simple changes in diet and portion size will drastically help people live healthier.

American society can be very cruel at times (It's called home of the brave for a reason I suppose). We treat our obese population like we treat our prison population - that they should be punished for the way you are instead of fixed.

Mannnn...I'm a teach, and I do so many things that when taken out of context would get me in trouble. However, I know to stop joking around when it comes to poking any sort of fun at the expense of students. I use the Conan O'Brien style of comedy and make fun of myself instead, no one can get me into trouble for that....
 
2011-03-30 07:18:21 PM
Isn't Asperger's caused by the flourine in drinking water?

Anyway, it seems way over-diagnosed nowadays, every doctor wants to pin some kind of diagnosis on the precious crotchfruit out there to justify their pay.

As long as the kids don't lose respect for you. I had a high school history teacher Junior year who admited to the class that he was a 28 year old virgin. Once he was no longer a respected authority year it was like Lord of the Flies the rest of the year.

Yes, it's real. I married an Aspie (mild case), and let's just say she has a limited repertoire of social skills. OTOH, she's become a great cook, has always been a great sysadmin, and loves me to pieces, so she's got that going for her
 
2011-03-30 07:25:37 PM
I've met five people with Aspergers in a four year period... I seem to be a magnet. I usually tolerate them for a week or so, before becoming tired of listening to them talk about the same thing for twenty minutes, or saying really rude things. All five have been very bright, but were as annoying/compulsive as hell.
