I don't much care either way. For 40 years I was just an aloof asshole. Finding out I was a "clinical asshole" with a congenital brain abnormality didn't really help much.
Agreed. I strongly dislike the labelling of non-violent, "socially challenging" personalities as being somehow medically "disordered".

Just like the bullshit medicalisation of body type variation - for profit, IMO a lot of the "personality disorders" created by psychiatrists are exactly that, BS for $$$.

"Conform! Or be medicated!
Pay to be normal! Bow down and obey!"


Fuck that noise.

Being an FA is not a "disorder". Nor is telling uncomfortable truths.
