    A little personal rant.



    I am in the process of being diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome, a part of the Autistic "Spectrum". About 1% of the population are on the spectrum, Asperger's is obviously far rarer, some estimates are from 0.1% or fewer. Aspeerger;s has now also been classified as HFA, High-Functioning Autism.

    A major trait of Autism is the difficulty in social interaction and inability to read people. Also the most obvious signs to others are behavioural issues and melt downs caused by sensory overload.
    Yet Autism is just a small [art of other disabled minorities that have difficulties in communication and making themselves known.


    Sorry, going a bit too in depth. My issue is that a very vocal and socially adept minority seems to be taking over all the minority coverage by the media and government.
    I have no issues with any minorities, we all need some sort of voice and assistance in teaching the general population about ourselves and our diversities and our ability to give something back to society.


    I just think that the LGBT etc groups appear to have taken up 90% of attention, due to their ability to communicate and be loud.


    As previously been mentioned I am on the "Spectrum" which is represented by the colour spectrum, which I think is appropriate, yet this image and others, along with certain words, like "Pride" have been snatched and taken for their own.
    It would be nice if attention was given to others less fortunate in the ability to make themselves known, and not attention given to those who would probably turn it into an issue if they were ignored.


    Sorry for the rant, I just feel frustrated at times that there are so many out there who cannot speak out for themselves, I am one of the lucky ones who can, up to a point. But I do fall down a lot in the fact that people interpret what I say/type in a way I did not intend it to be.

    Sorry you are frustrated I did try to PM you but my request to send was denied

    I don't know enough about any of this to pass comment as such but agree those on the spectrum are not generally loud or heard

    Take care

    Did anyone else order any beers in the Sparks preview, check the BB dates. One of our boxes was OOD. :eek:

    What was going to be cheap beer might now be free beer. :beer: Couldn't be replaced as now OOS so hopefully going to get refund, had to send pics as proof...

    Can't fault the customer service :T, Mr TS was happy to keep it anyway as he really wanted to try this particular one.

    Have this urge to go and stand out in it as it's been that long. :rotfl:

    All the water butts were empty including the huge ibcs Mr TS has well I think that is what they are called.

    Glad I didn't put a wash on in the end today, don't think it was forecast.
