A Telegraph article this weekend explored the lives of 4 British women living with autism. Despite the fact that most of them were not diagnosed until relatively late in life, they lead what seem to be productive and relatively happy lives. One source of discontent? None of them feel like they fit into the stereotypes of what women "ought" to be. Well, in my "I Am Spartacus" moment for the day, let me say: there are few women that fit into that stereotype. I'm a loud mouthed, overly-independent woman who sucks at makeup, rarely bothers to "do" my hair and says completely socially-inappropriate things pretty much all the time. So, actually, in that way, we're pretty much like everyone else. [The Telegraph]
