Double posting, but I asked a group of folk about the autism/trans connection. A discord member pointed out that both populations feel a social need to wear masks and hide who they are in order to fit into society and avoid potentially fatal consequences.
And, wow, that, um, that hit hard. Like taking a shot of rotgut whiskey while also getting punched in the stomach. Might be a bit too heavy a topic to really explore in this thread.

Correlation =/= causation etc etc. Won't get into it because yeah it's a little heavier than the mood of the room.
If you wanna ask me my perspective, I'm trans and autistic and have plenty of stern words I tried my best to refrain from overdoing in the episode. Shoot me a message here. I'll probably see it pretty quick.
