Is Money Maker Mike Autistic

A better question may be whether the silent partner is taken advantage of by his rapping counterpart Krispy Kreme. As a YouTube viral musical act, Krispy Kreme and Money Maker Mike have appeal to a young audience. Krispy Kreme is irreverent and candid about his likes and dislikes. What is not known is anything about his partner in video, Mike.  This young man can be seen as the fake-gun-toting, hand waving silent counterpart. Although he may seem to be disabled it would be wrong to label anyone in this way. Maybe he’s just an introvert. Whatever the case, let’s not speculate.

Did Mozart have Autism?

Mozart is one of the most beloved, prolific and masterful musicians and composers of all time. The facts surrounding his life—first symphony composed at five years, wild and bawdy lifestyle as an adult, favorite and menace to the king—are all well documented. But, there is little speculation that he had autism. Truly, if he could be diagnosed with the disorder, it was a mild form because he was very high functioning. Of course, the fact that he was a musical savant does seem to lead some to this conclusion. The fact is, we will never know. The diagnosis came too late.

My autistic son is sexually attracted to Pokemon

I have a 13 year old about to be 14. He’s having dirty dreams about cartoon characters. My husband and I would like some suggestions on how to explain things to him . He’s also touching and rubbing himself in public. Talks about dreaming of doing things with the cartoons. With just anyone. Anybody have suggestions please“, asked by Jen

Ok. So sexual fantasies and masturbation at this age are normal. He probably fantasizes about cartoon characters because he watches a lot of cartoons. That’s normal too. If he watched more shows with real people in them he would probably fantasize about them instead.
If I understand your concerned correctly, is his public displays and conversations about sexual activities. As long as the activities are not the result of sexual abuse, he’s perfectly within his right to feel and act these things out IN PRIVATE.
My six year old has been balling up her favorite blanky, placing it “down there” while she lays on top of it and rolling back and forth over it to masturbate since she was two. She doesn’t know anything about sex, but she does know this feels good and it calms her down when she’s anxious or about to go to sleep. Now that she’s older, we remind her to “do that in your room” or “keep it in your room“.
You need to have a very frank and simple discussion with your son about these activities. Do not shame the boy or make him feel bad or dirty because it might increase the behaviors. Instead, calmly inform the boy, with a blank facial expression, that it’s okay if he wants to fantasize about these things and masturbate, but it has to be in his room and nowhere else. If he starts talking about it in public, parents need to gently remind him, “that’s private” and “it belongs in your room at home“. If he can’t contain himself, he needs to be removed to a bathroom, which is also considered a private and acceptable place for masturbation.
Consistency is necessary here. This process has to be continually reinforced until the boy understands that it’s okay but not okay in public or around strangers who might want to hurt him or have him arrested because they feel uncomfortable about his behavior.
You and classmate also needs to leave the door open for his son to talk about these feelings and ask questions about sex. It’s not a comfortable topic for any parent, but one which needs to be breached, special needs or not.
Hygiene with masturbation also needs to be part of the discussion. After masturbation in private the parents should remind their son to wash his hands with soap and water and clean up any ejaculate without commenting to anyone about what he’s doing. Again, you need to just cue him verbally and drop the subject.If you want to change the subject matter of his wet dreams and fantasies, which right now is extremely tame and safe given what most boys his age are dreaming and fantasizing about, then he will have to watch something other than cartoons. Action movies with pretty girls in the female leading roles might help. All things considered though, he’s really safe with cartoon fantasies because he won’t try to act these out with real life people.
Hope this helps. Any other questions, just ask. There are some books out there too for parents to read and share with their special needs teens about these sensitive topics.

Is Morrissey autistic

Is “The Smith’s” Morrissey Autistic?

“The Smith’s” were a relatively popular band, at least in alternative circles in the 1980’s and 1990’s and Morrissey was their inspiration (as well as lead singer). He was interesting to say the least and the music reflected that. He had a singular droning, monotonal style that seemed to excite his fans. To some he was given the status of musical genius. To be sure his sound was very unique. But, it is difficult to tell whether he had any form of autism (even though a similar diagnosis was speculated). Thus, providing a concrete statement is difficult indeed. In all likelihood, he was not autistic.

Is the TV Character, Adrian Monk, Autistic?

Fictional characters can be described as having autism, but it is often difficult to discern because information is scant as far as their disabilities. For Monk, that is not the case. The show, entitled “Monk”, is more about his disability than even the crime solving it is supposed to be based on. However, although it is possible to assume Monk is autistic, according to the diagnosis given by the show, he is not. He does have severe obsessive compulsive personality disorder which heightens his awareness and quirks at the same time. It may look like autism, but it is not.
