Wrong Planet's alien mascot
, as illustrated by Alex Plank.
is a web forum founded in 2004 by Alex Plank (who has High Functioning Autism
) and Dan Grover as a place where other people considered Auties
can join. The board is open to not only those with autism, but to the relatives or friends of those affected as well as NTs/allistics sympathetic to the cause. Autism and Aspergers are far and away the most popular topics, but they aren't the only things to talk about in Wrong Planet.
This website provides examples of:
- Bunny-Ears Lawyer: From how they describe themselves, with the combination of their quirks and talents, this would be an accurate description of many of the members of this forum.
- Cloudcuckooland: This website is a gathering spot for Cloudcuckoolanders, so yeah.
- Don't You Dare Pity Me!: Naturally, the autistic members of this forum do not want to be pitied.
- Godwin's Law: This trope is surprisingly rare for an internet forum.
