Yeah, yeah. Another studio. But I can assure you that this one has a good cause.
I watched a TED Talk today that inspired me (if you're confused on what that is, it's a "media organization which posts talks online for free distribution, under the slogan 'ideas worth spreading'"). It was about disabilities, and I have something similar, but these disabilities are mental, not physical. I made a studio a little bit like this a while ago, but it was only on OCD, and there are two others that I have that I didn't mention. Anxiety and Asperger's Syndrome. Anxiety is widely known, but Asperger's Syndrome could use some recognition.
Asperger's Syndrome is no longer recognized as its own disorder - it's been part of Autism Spectrum Disorder for years. Since it is no longer its own disorder, it doesn't get as much recognition as it should. People with Asperger's (a shortened name for it) can have a wide range of symptoms, but almost all of them make it so that people with it find it very hard to socialize. Some symptoms include not making eye contact often (speaking from personal experience, it make me very uncomfortable when I do so), having a formal way of speaking that is advanced for their age, finding it hard to understand jokes (I find it very hard to distinguish between jokes and someone being serious, and people often can't tell when I'm joking because it's very hard for me to change my tone of voice to make it sound like I'm joking on purpose), and more. People with it don't have all the symptoms, but they likely have a lot of them. Asperger's is more common in boys and men that in women, and they were working on a cure but people with it didn't want it because it would change who they were, so they stopped. If I was given the chance to have that cure, I'd still say no despite the symptoms.
There are so many disorders that exist, and chances are that you might have one too, because almost every 1 in 4 people have one according to tests. So next time that you feel tempted to say something mean to someone who's different, consider why they're different, and remember that being different isn't a bad thing, because I've been called too serious because of symptoms that I know are from me having Asperger's Syndrome, and let me tell you that it doesn't feel too great.
