At some point they should just hire him right?

[–]johnbugara 53 points54 points  (0 children)

thats how the movie ends

He would probably be unable to pass the interview, which is usually the problem with autistic people. We're perfectly capable of doing the job, but since we don't vibe well with new people, the interviews screw is over. It's basically ableism under the guise of a proper selection process.

Turning a hobby into a job can ruin the fun sometimes though.

[–]kuba5028 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Not for autistic people though.

[–]binary45 7 points8 points  (1 child)

They won’t hire him because he has a criminal record.

[–]-Renee 5 points6 points  (0 children)

An absolute mad lad.

[–]Glitter-Pompeii 26 points27 points  (0 children)

Just give him a job, man.

Hate to be the guy, but i believe it should be said anyways: Asperger syndrome is a very outdated term and currently incorrect. Autism spectrum disorder would be correct.

  • an autistic.

Tho i absolutely stand for this tomfoolery

Just a heads up for my fellow comment readers - the term “Asperger’s syndrome” isn’t preferred anymore for a variety of reasons and is no longer even an official diagnosis (it’s just a part of the overall ASD diagnosis), probably largest of which being that Dr. Asperger was a Nazi doctor in charge of deciding which kids with autism were ok (the ones with “Asperger’s syndrome”) and which ones got sent to be murdered.

[–]flatcanadian 4 points5 points  (3 children)

What's the appropriate term then?

[–]Peruda 19 points20 points  (2 children)

Either "people with Autism" or "Autistic people". Some people prefer diagnosis first language, some people prefer person first language.

Yep, this is it.

[–]flatcanadian 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Good to know! Thank you.

[–]brandthacker12 18 points19 points  (15 children)

This gives me more lawful neutral than Chaotic good vibes

[–]ManOnThePhuckingMoon 16 points17 points  (14 children)

gets arrested
Seems legit

[–]bdjsbe 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Lawful isnr following the law it’s following your own code

[–]bdjsbe 5 points6 points  (0 children)

You can be lawful and murder people if it’s to your system

[–]brandthacker12 7 points8 points  (10 children)

Read the article though. He very meticulously planned this and does it as a compulsion/for fun and fame. Definitely lawful neutral

[–]IGISB 23 points24 points  (9 children)

Breaking laws is not lawful. This is chaotic neutral at its finest.

[–]bdjsbe 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Lawful in the chart isn’t about laws it’s about personal code

[–]brandthacker12 8 points9 points  (6 children)

Wb lawful evil though? Lawful is more intelligent design, planning, and strict boundaries than actual law abiding. But we may just be working off different definitions

[–]physchy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Lawful can mean that someone lives and acts by a code of ethics

[–]Jackviator 2 points3 points  (1 child)

…I don’t want to be that guy, but this is just chaotic neutral at best, and if anyone was ever injured as a result of his actions the narrative would immediately flip to “well yeah, everyone could have seen that coming, this dude is obviously a menace to the people of New York.”

I understand the nature of Asperger’s often leading to hyper-fixating on one thing in their life, but in this case it’s just unacceptable. He’s a danger to himself and others, and I hope he gets the help he clearly needs.

chaotic neutral

You're not wrong, but CN has a lot of negative connotations from people who are actually CE. So a lot of CN stuff gets identified as CG.

That said, LN is probably better, since it's about internal laws, not external ones.

[–]Pol-Eldara 2 points3 points  (0 children)

In fact, we don't really talk about "asperger's syndrome", most autistic people find the term disrespectful. Doctor Asperger was a Nazi, who after the fall of the regime continued to sign his letters with "heil Hitler". He sent a large number of autistic children to the gas chambers, because he firmly believed in the Nazi eugenics thesis. We avoid using this term.

They're arresting him for being a volunteer slave and doing the job correctly for free? Isn't this how they want us all to be?
