Jess Aarons with Asperger's syndrome? Bulls**t![edit]

I'm a retired school psychologist. Jess does not exhibit, in my professional opinion, anything resembling Asperger's Syndrome. True, the special education systems and mental health community have loosened a lot of the criteria for the Autistic Spectrum of Disorders including Asperger's, but anyone with any experience with autism can tell that Jess would not have it if he were a real-life person.

If there's an "epidemic" of autistic disorders out there, it's because laymen out there throw out these so-called diagnoses willy-nilly without knowing what they're talking about!

For fictional characters, i believe the standard for "diagnosing" a character is really quite simple: either a fictional doctor in the work diagnoses the character, the narrator (whether omniscient or a character themself) diagnoses them, the author states publicly that the character has the diagnosis, or a notable critic points out similarities to character traits and a real world condition. any connection we make here, without using a reliable source, is pure original research. Even if we mention in the article that the character DOESNT have aspergers, is original research without sources, no matter how obvious this may be to an expert writing here. PS the commentator is mostly correct in their general comments on our real world problems with this diagnosis, though I am not sure if the expanded use of the term is the only cause for the increase in the occurrence of the illness. thats an ongoing real world debate, also debated here. At least you have direct experience in the matter, and are not just an armchair social scientist!Mercurywoodrose (talk) 16:59, 21 January 2012 (UTC)
