I think people with Asperger's "syndrome" just violated someone's
arbitrary and very narrow idea of what they think is normal.

Here's my advice: forget all this crap about Asperger's syndrome.
Instead, go read about Myers-Briggs personality typing.  _Please
Understand Me_, by David Kiersey, is a good reference.  Kiersey would
probably dismiss Asperger's "syndrome" as nothing but a strong
introverted and thinking personality.

Frankly, it sickens me that there are people out there who consider
traits such as introversion, and reliance on thought instead of
feeling, to be "diseases."
