First story I read about her said she had "borderline Asperger's syndrome."  But Fox, of course, had to amp it up a bit.

Judge Wapner rumored to have been hired as a judge this year. She is probably counting on it. But I don't think it will matter. No. Definitely not.
 
2013-01-11 08:04:48 AM  
she's hot.  yeah, definitely hot.

Is that like being borderline pregnant?

Meh. Wake me up when the first Tourettes contestant is on.

Only if there is a pregnancy spectrum.

"For the longest time I just really wanted to know what was wrong with me," she said. "When I was finally diagnosed I felt like it came too late."
As a parent of a kid who required hundreds of hours of speech therapy just to be able to finish a sentence, people like this really piss me off.

I understand what you are saying, but, at least from what I am aware, "Autism" has become a very "vague" term now for a wide range of conditions (as they call it, the "spectrum").  I'm sure for someone who has a child with a much more dramatic form, it is hard seeing someone like her who is fairly well spoken talk about her "struggles", but, at least technically, she probably still has "it".  It is probably more that at this point maybe they need to have some more specific terms (and I'm sure they do, they just don't get talked about publicly much, everyone just says "Autism").

Great.  Now everyone wants to have sex with a retard.
Thanks a lot, subby.

Borderline means not on the spectrum. So this headline should be: "slightly weird, socially awkward girl is pageant contestant". BFD.

Pretty much this.  Altho I might tack on "trying to garner sympathy points from media & pageant judges"

Just be careful the strength doesn't kick in while she's giving you a handjob, or she might rip your dick off.
 
2013-01-11 09:45:37 AM  
Something tells me that under the new DSM guidelines, the "borderline" wouldn't even be close.
 
2013-01-11 09:58:56 AM  
Meh. Might just be easier to convince her to pick my skin flavored popsicle.
 
2013-01-11 09:59:09 AM  
Where are the bikini pics?

Fark, I am disappoint.

Wonder if she buys her panties at Wal-Mart?

getting mad at people who have it less bad is like getting mad at cancer survivors because someone in your family died of cancer (or just suffered a lot more)

I think it is encouraged in Trump's Miss USA contest.

Being good looking and retarded is heroic?

How could you tell? Most of the contestants are easily distracted by shiny things.
 
2013-01-11 10:04:26 AM  
That's retarded.
 
2013-01-11 10:04:34 AM  
"Wineman said now she is used to living with autism now"

I would have expected more from... *checks site*... never mind.

She has joined the pageant as part of an effort by Miss America Corp. to improve the quality of the answers given during the question portion of the competition.

After watching the interview it's tough to figure out which woman was retarded.

says she wanted to learn a language like Perl, but the OO-ness of Python was much more appealing... and has a near total inability to understand Microsoft's languages, C#.
 
2013-01-11 10:06:59 AM  
Autistic miss America... Does that mean she tried but only got to Canada?
 
2013-01-11 10:07:28 AM  
The pageant is for pretty girls. Technically, a brain dead woman could win.

Heroes come cheap on Fark.
 
2013-01-11 10:08:03 AM  
Where are her paintings?

Also, we shouldn't allow her to own a firearm.
 
2013-01-11 10:08:06 AM  
Congratulations, male heterosexual and lesbian Farkers! Miss Americas are now even more unlikely to acknowledge your existence!

I bet some of you think all pretty women are autistic.
 
2013-01-11 10:08:14 AM  
I am growing so tired about hearing about people with autism, ADD, ADHD, Asperger's, etc. Can't people just stop making up names for these so-called "conditions," and take some responsibility? I get it, you are socially awkward. When I was a kid, that would just mean that you gotten beat up here and there, but you would just go home as the beaten up weird kid, not some completely dysfunctional, Ritalin popping mess with some poorly diagnosed trendy "disease" caused by getting too many vaccinations.
 
2013-01-11 10:08:18 AM  
Since when is it OK for Miss America contestants to have fangs? No dentists in Montana? Sheesh!
