I’m kinda Aspy and a few points out of the spectrum. I’m married, so it’s not inconceivable that some women date folks on the spectrum.

That's funny. I'm an IT Pro, and have a handful of friends who are as well, or are "tech guys," as you put it. A lot of us our social butterflies, some are not. I wasn't aware that having a job in my field and conversing with others about things we are passionate about, automatically means we're autistic, and we're on the spectrum. I get what you're trying to say, and I am sorry to hear about the experience you had, but you are making quite large assumption here. You said it yourself, it could be anyone from anywhere. Anthony Hopkins has Asperger's. Andy Warhol, while not officially diagnosed, showed signs of autism, which many doctors agree to this day that he did have it. Hell, even the creator of Pokemon is Autistic/has Asperger's. Some people have it worse than others, and sometimes it's the last person you'd expect.

A performer's public persona is not at all how they behave in real life when the cameras are off. Someone like Amy Shumer couldn't run her company and manage her career her if she actually was a drunk party girl 24/7. But I digress...

I think someone else with autism would.


My cousin and her husband both have autism. They are perfect for eachother. They work and they own a home and it works. That said, they are pretty high functioning.


But autism is not a life sentence for being single. They can definitely find someone.


Would I personally date someone with autism? Sorry, no I wouldn't.

When you're missing some screws, you're missing some screws. They don't magically reappear and bolt back on to secure that thing in her head she considers a brain, cameras or not.

Bill Gates, Jerry Seinfeld, Neil Young, Daryl Hanna, Dan Akroyd to name a few.
They have money. Some people don't care who you are as long as you have $$.


It's infinitely harder for unfamous/middle of the road people to date if you have something like autism.

How does she behave? Worse than male comedians? Worse than you and your friends would have with $10,000,000 in your 20’s?

In any case they recently had their first child and she’s not 22 anymore so I’m sure as with all of us she has matured and will be a great mom. Seems like a good marriage where they both unconditionally accept the other, more power to him.

If anyone wants to see it. She talks about her marriage and his autism in her Netflix stand up special “Growing”.

Oh please. bit of a stretch eh? So it's only male comedians who act disgusting? Hah, OK. Love the, "if you were her you'd do the same" bit. No, I wouldn't. But to answer your question, where to begin with how she acts or behaves? She stole, and still steals numerous jokes from well known comedians incessantly, and then tried denying it when there was physical evidence, created a hate group over spicy chicken nuggets and created a campaign again Wendy's and lashed out at every man out there, constantly tries getting involved in politics and thinks she knows what she's talking about, just because her cousin Chuck Schumer is a politician, and was an absolute hypocrite about the #MeTooMovement.


But please continue on about how her jokes about how "gross her vagina is" and that "we'd puke on sight," makes her an A+ comedian. I'll wait.

You donít have to like her politics or her humor but none of that sounds especially egregious to me. You just donít like her, thatís fine. Others do.
