look up any word, like cleveland steamer:
A hot new label that has been out for the past 15-20 years describing a person, usually a boy of school age, that is physically and socially awkward, lacking common sense, has trouble making friends, has obsessive interests that are trivial to most people, and blackballed from the general populace. In the past, many were described as a spaz, reject, goofy, or incompetent.
Asperger's Syndrome

Imagine a tiny mind, half the size of a tic-tac. This pseudo-mind contains all of the ingredients of full-blown intelligence. Then crush that pill up and dissolve it into an Olympic swimming pool.

That is the lot of the average Neurotypical.
Unfortunately, they have not a fraction of the mental wattage to understand something as complex as Aspergers syndrome or Autism, particularly as those 'conditions' generally impart an order of magnitude more intelligence than the average Neurotypical.
Oddly, Neurotypicals can't spell either.

Asperger's is easier to understand in terms of the stupidity of Neurotypicals sometimes:
Basically, some whiny teenage emo outcasts figured out that they could easily fit in with others of their own kind, but only at the expense of being just a teeny bit able to think. Then they started making this bullshit movement for other whiny ~unique~ teenagers to join them. So that they could all meet together on the Internet and have a giant fucking circlejerk about how ''UNIQUE'' and ''MISUNDERSTOOD'' they are. To make themselves feel better they beat up on quiet kids until the parents' complain, but the whiny teens get a few dipshit doctors to vouch for them. Their grammar remains apalling.

Attention-whoring Emo Neurotypical Dickhead: "Fear my Vulcan mind-abilities, puny earthling, for I have Asperger's Syndrome!" - is an exaggeration, amazingly with correct spelling and grammar, but by and large this world was *created* by people with Asperger's/Autism and other genius-generating conditions. And Psycopaths, the homo sapiens' natural internal predator. Neurotypicals really are just the meat and sewerage of the system, they serve no 'central' purpose, but its important for them to believe that they do. Can you honestly imagine a Neurotypical conceiving of 'Courts' or 'Parliament' ? Can you imagine them designing the engineering concepts that go into building a house? A skyscraper? A car? A rocket? An aircraft? Give me a break, there is just no way. These things take a deep, deep ability to abstract. Aspergers Syndrome.

A condition where a persons lacks the social capabilites of their age group.

Some people think aspies "don't have any personality" or "have no social skills". Which can really hurt the aspies feelings. Aspies often don't have the unanxiousness to express their personality freely. A lot of aspies sense of humour is different, because they often take things literally, and sometimes don't pick up on sarcasm quickly. (Which is often compensated by the aspie finding every other kind of humour more funny than others seem to). Humour is very important for social interactions and connecting with others. Some people with mild aspergers can have the potential to be unusually successful.
However, NT's lack the aspie charm, that can come from the combination of intelligence and naivete. A lot of NT's don't have the loyalty of someone with aspergers syndrome, which can be a surprisingly rare and highly desired trait in the eyes of many people. Aspies often have integrity, originality and many other good traits. I also think there is a good side to seemingly lacking empathy (that is lacking the theory-of-mind of an NT), and that is that the person who has more than average theory-of-mind is a psycopath.

Most of the time aspies often have a good nature, so please don't hurt them. If the aspie is causing damage without any bad intention behind it, you don't have to abuse them and you don't have to help them either. Just politely keep them out of your life, WITHOUT SAYING ANYTHING THAT DAMAGE THEIR SELF ESTEEM. This does not take effort. I don't think there is an unhurtful way to point out the lagging social skills to the aspie. (Unless you love them and are prepared to put in the time and effort). I hope that people just let the aspie eventually work out in which areas they need to change them selves. At the same time, I hope that anyone who is having unintentional damage done to their life by an aspie, does not let that aspie in their life any further.

Asperger Syndrome is one of several autism spectrum disorders (ASD) characterized by difficulties in social interaction and by restricted and stereotyped interests and activities. AS is distinguished from the other ASDs in having no general delay in language or cognitive development. Although not mentioned in standard diagnostic criteria, motor clumsiness and atypical use of language are frequently reported.

Asperger syndrome was named after Hans Asperger who, in 1944, described children in his practice who appeared to have normal intelligence but lacked nonverbal communication skills, failed to demonstrate empathy with their peers, and were physically clumsy. Fifty years later, AS was recognized in the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems , and in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV) as Asperger's Disorder. Questions about many aspects of AS remain: for example, there is lingering doubt about the distinction between AS and high-functioning autism (HFA); partly due to this, the prevalence of AS is not firmly established. The exact cause of AS is unknown, although research supports the likelihood of a genetic contribution, and brain imaging techniques have identified structural and functional differences in specific regions of the brain.

There is no single treatment for Asperger syndrome, and the effectiveness of particular interventions is supported by only limited data. Intervention is aimed at improving symptoms and function. The mainstay of treatment is behavioral therapy, focusing on specific deficits to address poor communication skills, obsessive or repetitive routines, and clumsiness. Most individuals with AS can learn to cope with their differences, but may continue to need moral support and encouragement to maintain an independent life. Adults with AS have reached the highest levels of achievement in fields such as mathematics, physics and computer science.Researchers and people with AS have contributed to a shift in attitudes away from the notion that AS is a deviation from the norm that must be treated or cured, and towards the view that AS is a difference rather than a disability.
Asperger's syndrome is distinguished by a pattern of symptoms rather than a single symptom. It is characterized by qualitative impairment in social interaction, by stereotyped and restricted patterns of activities and interests, and by absence of delay in cognitive development and of general delay in language. Intense preoccupation with a narrow subject, one-sided verbosity, restricted prosody and intonation, and motor clumsiness are typical of the condition, but are not required for diagnosis.

Something in today's advanced world you would think would have at least a medical treatment for it, even a cure.
"Tha guy looking for a cure for Asperger's Syndrome, do you reckon he has it himself"?

A neurological disorder that only 5-7% of the people diagnosed actually have. Most people who claim to have this disorder are just socially awkward teenagers who have parents with little willpower who didn't force them to socialize when they were young and let them play N64 all day.

Like ADHD in the 90's and the early 00's, Asperger's Syndrome has become the chic diagnosis of today that parents accept so that they don't have to face the fact that they failed as parents.

Doctors and Psychiatrists also refuse to speak up because they typically receive kickbacks from pharmaceutical companies for prescribing their products, making the probability of over diagnosis high.

Some annoying qualities of Aspies include:

- Bragging about having a mild form of autism

- Pretending that Autism automatically means "genius" and that they should be allowed to play xbox all day without any responsibility because they could do great things, but choose not to

- Sitting in the back of class writing Yu-Gi-Oh fan fiction and mumbling about "conformists"

- Thinking creativity means regurgitating things they see on TV verbatim

- Writing walls of text about how every mathematician, astronomer, artist, musician and world leader in human history had Asperger's
Aspies are supposed to be so much smarter and more creative than us mere mortals, yet they all copy-paste the same wikipedia definition of Asperger's Syndrome on Urban Dictionary without looking to see if anyone else has done it yet.

A condition on the Autism Spectrum Disorder. Symptoms can include lack of flexible thinking, lack of social skills and a lack of empathy.

Oh, please, the only reason people see this as a "fake disorder" is due to a very small percentage in court cases use it to get off the hook. Thusly, we have all these people claiming that more than half of Aspies on the internet are faking it.

People who make fun of Aspies, take a time to think about this: Heather Kuzmich (hot fashion model) and contestant of America's Next Top Model, has Asperger's
Hey, did you see that model with Asperger's Syndrome on ANTM last night?
