Sorry if this is insensitive but I keep thinking about that one time I thought to myself hey maybe I'm "on the spectrum" that would explain some things so I did an online test and it basically said I was as far from having autism as you can possibly get lol

@phocks it's entirely possible that the test was based on ableist misconceptions
I've had so many people say I'm as far from having autism as one can possibly get because I *checks notes* got all As in high school and force myself to make near eye contact

@phocks If you're interested, my blog post ( has a bulleted list of the tests I was given, and the RAADS-R is a pretty standard test for ASD.

@phocks I did the same thing a couple years ago. Same result.
