i'm pretty sure Aspergers is no longer called Aspergers but rather high functioning autism or something like that.

I read an article that it will no longer be listed seperately in the new DSM, but will be listed as a sub-category of autism.

Asperger's no longer officially exists. Those with symptoms are now included under ASD, (Autism Spectrum Disorder,) with qualifiers, such as "with fluent speech".

WHATEVER! I have it! I have always called it Aspergers and I will always call it Aspergers! Nitpick all you want, I don't care, Aspies don't do peer pressure.

As the father of an Aspie, you are so right. They are now and they will always be Aspies. And I certainly would vehemently disagree that it is a mild case of autism. That minimizes it and it should be offensive to consider it that in the Aspie community.

I don't see how including it on the autism spectrum minimizes it. Some believe Aspergers is the same thing as High Functioning Autism. The only difference seems to be whether there was a language delay. I have an autistic granddaughter and I would never use the world "mild" in the same sentence with any type of autism, even high functioning. You can call yourselves whatever you want, but Aspergers is now considered an autism spectrum disorder. (But if it's like everything else the terminology will change again, and again, and again over the years.)

I am also a father of someone with Aspergers Syndrome and I 100 per cent agree with courthousedoc on all the points he makes. To call it mild is offensive to those with the condition and their families and all who support them. Jetpunk states that offensive comments are unacceptable. It should apply the same standards to its questions.

It's not offensive and it wasn't the compiler's decision to make the medical community consider it a mild form of autism, they just used it as a quiz question.

Try to be less sensitive and stop looking for ways to be offended. You'll enjoy it.

Roley, nobody is upset at the question. It's the medical community that people have an issue with. Autism is INCREDIBLY broad, and to take a condition like Aspergers that has very defined traits and lump it in with all of the other people on the autism spectrum is kind of stupid. That would be like saying that dogs and cats...both have a ton of similar traits...will now no longer be divided into cats and dogs, but just one category of "domestic mammalian pet" with qualifiers like "with barking sound" vs "with purring sound." That makes no sense. My daughter is very high functioning on the autism spectrum. So are kids with Aspergers. My daughter does not have Aspergers. Clearly there is a difference.

I won't dispute that there are differences and you might consider it incorrect, or 'stupid', to compare them to each other.

I'm saying it is not offensive to make that comparison and that a lot of people these days have a tendency go out of their way to look for offence where there is none.

By the way, cats and dogs are grouped together as both being part of the kingdom 'Animalia', and even all the way down to order 'Carnivora', and they can certainly be compared to each other (just like you have started to do) - presumably with very few people considering that to be offensive (although there are bound to be a few somewhere).

In fact, I expect that what defined cats & dogs before they had been scientifically categorised probably was observed characteristics along the lines of 'mammal-type animal which meows' and 'mammal-type animal which barks'

Sorry, let me clarify - obviously offense is in the eye of the beholder and it's not for me to say what offends you. I just mean that it shouldn't offend as there is nothing insulting or derogatory implied
