Oh there were plenty of unfashionable moments in the 1980s, big hair, metal etc. (never mind that Queen’s most famous song was in 1975)

And don’t get me started on the 80s love of big padded shoulders in suits. It was ridiculous.
I had long hair in the late 70s into 80s. Even had an Affro for a spell. Nowt wrong with long 'barnet'.

To add to the discussion on Autism/Asperger's.........Asperger's is on the spectrum of Autism. I've found that most people do not truly understand Autism and usually only see what the media chooses to show what Autism looks like. There are many more people with Asperger's and most are truly brilliant people. High functioning autistic people are also often brilliant and you may not even know they are on the spectrum. Some people on the spectrum may appear to show narcissistic behavior, but most often it's not intentional. People on the spectrum respond to social settings or relationship conflict a bit different as most on the spectrum just need time and a bit of space as change or conflict is often unsettling. When you give them time to reflect, they can then make decisions when they are ready with ease.

People with the Dark Triad personality type, just run!

Mental issues have always been, and may always be an issue as bad behaviour is often described as 'mental issues' My daughter is dyslexic, there are many umbrella terms used to lump things together, she was assessed as dyslexic but later that became 'learning difficulties'. She always struggled at school but went on to college, passed a typing course and is now a very fast touch typist. Modern technology such as spell check has helped but overall it was her effort that helped her overcome difficulties.

So true on how society looks at people that are "different" as having mental issues.

That's really excellent that your daughter is doing so well. Inspiring for all of us to persevere.
