    I have a long family history with autism and AS HE and have worked with them for a while and sometimes I see similarities with me and autistic people.

    Ashley.

    I wasn’t aware of this. Are you are you able to provide links or otherwise references to the research. I would really like to read it.

    Take care girl.

      Here’s one study. There seems to be a lot of debate but IME (anecdotal of course), I’ve noticed it a lot.

        Thank you, Ashley,   this seems a plausible explanation for this compulsion we all seem to have…and it fits me to a T.  Not to mention, it’s a better explanation to give than “Because I want to”.

        Hugs

    I discovered years ago that I fit the Asperger’s profile; but at an age that there seemed little point in pursuing the matter. And there was a brief time in my early teens when I wondered if I was “supposed” to be a girl, but something went wrong. Finally decided I was just a misfit in society. (Quite comfortable here, however).

    It is interesting. I am really introverted and socially awkward, so it’s definitely possible.

    This is probably what’s behind a lot of my anxiety over my cross dressing. If I sometimes get uncomfortable in relatively normal social situations, how am I supposed to handle situations involving cross dressing?

    Ashley, an interesting question to be sure.  I am not sure if I would be on the spectrum but considering I am on other spectrums, it’s possible.
