    Having a mental health problem doesn't make anyone less of a person, they can still achieve everything that they want.

    That's a chip on your shoulder, not what people actually think.

    In general.
    Most people treat Asperger's as if you can NEVER go to a club or have fun etc. when you can.

    You say it's a chip on their shoulder, and while it isn't a mainstream attitude in the UK, the Autism $peaks attitude suggests otherwise... I mean OBVIOUSLY autistic/aspergers people can be productive members of society, but not everyone knows this unfortunately :/

    But it is a social stigma everyone has!
    Even black people think so!

    Check out this video of a black girl getting her hair done (her hair is beautiful) but the comments aren't.

    Just black women saying she isn't black because she has nice hair!

    I know, I’m agreeing with you! I’m just saying that a lot of people think bg’s with naturally long/straight/loose curled hair are mixed or wearing wig/weave.

    "all that they can" isn't really very positive; the "can" can be very low.

    To have a chip on one's shoulder means to hold a grudge and want to cause a fight. It's pretty obvious that's not what you're trying to do

    I feel like we shouldn't judge others based on what they can and can't do

    "people over the age of 18 who still play video games are manchildren who need to grow up"

    I'm told this viewpoint was more prevalent in the 80s but many people in my family still believe this.
