I wanted to ask what are the symptoms or signs of Autism?:
I ask because I found out my friend's sister has Autism (No, really she is my friend's younger sister) and while I haven't really known her sister for too long, infact we were both on a Christian camp and was the most I had interacted with her but you wouldn't even know she had it, I mean there are some things that seem odd but I didn't chalk it up to anything. So I was just wondering exactly what is Autism and such? (I had accidentally mistaken it for Aspergers for a moment). I am guessing that it's not too mild because like I said you wouldn't really notice if you were in a conversation with her.
I don't know a lot about autism, but I know about aspergers and I will write that.
Aspergers is an individual disorder, how one is affected by it depends on how severe it is and this got a wide range. Savantism is sometimes considered an extreme type of autism. It's usual that people with aspergers develop special interests (usually 1 or 2 at a time) and it's very easy for them to learn about those special interests because they are interested about them. It's also usual that they have problems with social things, like understanding emotions or detecting sarcasm. It's also difficult for them to understand what you mean if you don't say what you mean, one example mentioned a lot in texts about it is the question: "Can you open the window?", people with aspergers would answer "yes" because they are able to open the window unless someone had prior to that told them that it's a request rather than a question. It's also not uncommon with individual traits. (Do note that the severity of the disorder varies).
Ludwig- Thank you that's very informative, I had also decided to google it as well. I am not sure how severe my friend's sister has it, although the times I had spent with her (Which before the camp I went on was very little) she seemed pretty normal, so I think it's mild to say aleast, after looking it up she has shown some of the things that come with it but it's not alot to make you think she has it, but you can't really judge when you haven't seen how people are in their homes (I have noticed that unless you spent large amount at their house you notice the change in attide and behaviour, but that's family stuff for you, but since I have not been to my friend's house much less is she living with her sister.... I think, I get confused alot with hers and her oldest sister's on where they are living).
I don't think she has Aspergers though since my friend had said Autism. I wonder though, is people who have Aspergers or Autism able to maintain a relationship? (No I am not thinking of asking her out, I mean I would but she's my friend 18 year old sister for starters, and secondly I have a major crush on another girl). It would seem a little unfair if she had to go on life never getting married, presuming she really cares about it at all just because of her Autism, which like I said isn't noticeable until someone points it out,
Autistic people can maintain relationships.
Ludwig- Ah true, I did notice some things were a bit off though, like at one point I was going 4x4 driving with the Pastor at the camp and I called out her name about five times from the car but she hadn't heard me (Which after reading upon it I noticed one of the things to go with it is having their name called and not responding, so it makes sense now, I thought she might had a hearing problem like me), she heard the pastor when he asked though (But then she was actually standing in front of him at that time).
Ah well that's good, I do think she's pretty (But I think her sister is kinda hot, and she has very similar features to both of her sisters so of course. And she's a redhead, for a long time I am not sure while but I have been attracted to alot of redheads, sadly because of that one severely burned me, not literal of course) and she does have a nice personality from what I can see so I think she would have a shot if she wanted to have a relationship with a guy.
Of what I understand of Autism, they (those suffering from it) have intricate skills with instruments or something similar, but have social problems, and have trouble reading social situations.

That does seem to make sense, on the last day of the camp when I walked into this hall she was playing the piano and quite well I add (I think she was playing it, her sister was next to her but she was standing while the former was sitting at the chair, I would have seen if another sort of sofa didn't block my view).
How do I get around the 4chan ISP block. Earthlink has been blocked due to abuse and I only posted like 2 times there so it definitely wasn't me being blocked, just some jack*** ruining it for other people. Worst of all, I need to make a thread on one of the specialty boards for something I'm having a problem with that I know people at the experty level are hard to find outside of that place.

Okay, I have a question that's been bugging me for the past six or so hours. So, any Anime Guru, Otaku, Weeaboo, or run-of-the-mill Japanese person ...
What exactly do "shonen", "bishonen", "shojo" and "bishojo" mean? Sorry if I've misspelled any of them, I'm no literary master of romanji. I've heard the first two tossed around a LOT in regards to anime and I've always wondered what the two actually mean. Also, in a couple songs done by female artists, I've heard the words "shojo" and "bishojo" tossed around.
Enlighten me, oh Scribes and Gurus of the Eastern Ways!
Shoujo is the japanese word for girl and is also used for a genre of anime/manga for females of the same age as was mentioned for shounen.
Bishounen is japanese and it's meaning is similar to "pretty boy", it's used for handsome boys that are younger than 18 years old.
Bishoujo is the female version of bishounen.
Do note that shounen and shoujo describes the audience and bishounen and shoujo describes the character.
Thank you. That's been irritating me for awhile. Like a splinter in my thumb.
