"...People with AS face enough condemnation throughout their lives from both family members and from society at large...."

Within a household where the people who do have Asperger's (or who don't have it but behave as though they have it because they're dedicated to upholding cultural customs that value tons of rote studying/sticking with the extended family and arranged marriage/etc. and scorn emotional expression/making friends and dating/etc.) are the adults in charge...

...and where the people who don't have Asperger's and can't thrive passing for Aspie are children who live under those adults' thumbs and need to see, hear, and feel emotional support from those adults (because they're only human, they don't have ESP, and "my never hugging you doesn't count because I have a doctor's note that says so, so it shouldn't have the same effect on you that an NT parent never hugging his or her child has on that child" doesn't make any sense to a baby)...

...those Aspies are definitely *not* being oppressed by those NTs for their Asperger's.
