Re: "Skins" Discussion

As someone with child-diagnosed Asperger's who has steadily gotten more and more socially competent through years of hard work culminating in being just about social average joe at 21, the whole "you're socially weird, therefore you should become socially weirder" reasoning just doesn't ji...

Re: "Tech Support Cheat Sheet" Discussion
