Basically from the google translation its "Physical and mental symptoms that occur to your spouse or partner because you cannot establish an emotional interaction with someone with Asperger syndrome" and how no one believes you when you tell other people. So, probably ableist as hell (I hadn't read what Japanese Autistic people have to say about it yet so take it with a grain of salt).
So I went on to the Japanese side of the internet, using Google Translate, specifically searching for autism related stuff, because there not much in English about how it's perceived in Japan. One thing I noticed when I was searching on Twitter was that the term "Cassandra Symdrome/カサンドラ症候群" popped up a lot.
on another note, lately ive been trying to figure out if im a binary trans man or non binary trans masc. like i dont really feel any comradery with men or with women in general, but i want to transition in a male direction. but it might be hard for me to feel comradery with men because i haven't been out enough, referred to one, such and such. i hadnt had enough input to figure out if im transmasc or a binary man.
also a lot of the boys at my school are jerks so theres that.
complaining about being autistic/my parents
also the "they don't know about autism/aspergers" thing my dad said to me once. that might be true in the lower grades, where kids tend to only know about stuff like this if it directly affects them, but like at this level, people are more likely to know about stuff in general.
also if it seems like im talking about it a lot on here, its because i don't have a good place to in real life. my parents are "its not that bad, your very high functioning, its mild and nobody probably knows. it makes you smart."
also some people probably figured it out
1. somebody in school literally asked if i'm autistic a couple months ago.
2. I have shared a good chuck of my classes with the same people for mutiple years. they probably figured it out.
honestly one of the most annoying things about the dominance of "autism parents" is that most of the online resources and info is geared towards parents for info on their young child.
it can be hard to find good positive resources for someone like me, a Not Child nor Parent, who just wants to learn more about the condition i have.
And all those parent oriented sites honestly just makes me feel worse.
self deprecating bio. he/him. i like to draw. i like webcomics. this is my infodumping/complaining/observations place
