Research: Autistic and Transgender/Gender fluid/Gender variant LOOKING for VOLUNTEERS


Recommended Posts





My name is Julie and I am from the Czech Republic. In this moment, I am conducting a post-graduate research that looks into autism and gender dysphoria. The first phase of the research showed further evidence of higher level of gender dysphoria in persons with autism in comparison with a neurotypical group. The second phase wants to look deeper into this topic by interviews with real people with real stories.


Who can participate? For the second phase of the research, I am looking for volunteers who were officially diagnosed with autism/Asperger’s syndrome. You must be over 16 years of age and you are transgender, gender fluid, variant or you have simply difficulties with understanding your gender identity.


What would be your task in this study? I would like to have an interview with you about this topic (for example your own gender perception, perception of gender roles, the development of gender identity). The interview will take approximately 45-60 mins (it may vary) and it can be done either via Skype/Meet or via email (I would send you questions and you would write answers).


What more should you know? For the analysis purpose, the interview must be recorded. However, all information will be anonymised and data are going to be used only for the research purpose and recordings will be destroyed after publishing the research. In the published paper there won’t be mentioned a real name and other information that can be sensitive. You can always stop the interview, if you do not feel comfortable.

I would be over the moon if you were a part of this research!


In case you would like to participate or to get more info, please contact me: [email protected] or [email protected]


Looking forward to hearing from you!

Hello Julie,


Welcome to TransgenderPulse.  There might be a few here who are autistic but offhand, I don't recall who they are. I do wish you well and hope that your study is a success.

I could possibly be a very good subject for this.  I had been diagnosed with Asperger's a long time ago, and I am trans. I mean, why else would I be here on this forum.  I have a lot of unique views on the subject as I spent a long time coming to a place where I would be capable of not only discussing who I am but understanding it from apparently opposite brainwaves.

I taught myself how to be normally social through hundreds of thousands of self-analysis and self-work.  I'm finally becoming able to understand professionalism for myself and feel as though I have finally come to a workable space that I can move forward with my life.  I have heard it suggested before that autistic/asperger's individuals seems to have a connection with being trans.

If you want to interview me I would be happy to set up a time, what method are you using for this? A video chat?

I haven't been officially diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, but I took the AQ Test/Autism Quotient Test a few years ago or so and scored a 44 out of 50 lol, (anything over 35 being considered to be "on the spectrum".)

      It's interesting to read this. Apart from the stuffed animals I have the only thing I can think of is my deliberate cultivation of a childlike attitude to learning such that I can learn and accept new ideas more readily; ie I try to avoid blinkered views and similar restrictions which often come with age. In that I have no age bias and fear of appearing childish (in the keeping up appearances sense).   Your last comments on baby talk do remind me of an advert for sweets / candy over here currently which has two policemen in a police car dubbed with childrens voices. People tend to love or hate it. I tend to mimic them and similar but more my sense of humour though.   Tracy

      It's pretty clear that Republican state governments don't fear, or even take notice of, the Biden administration's policies. It looks like the Republican State governments feel they have to move quick while they still have a 6-3 scotus conservative majority until the Dems pack the courts (within the next year probably) to even things up a bit.

      Totally relate. I was locked up in a psychoward ran by Mormons when I was 12-17 years old...sex was used as currency. ...Feel kinda lucky some days that I didn't really know I was being raped. ...Other days I just feel sick and wanna blow my brains out. ...Most days though, I just want....revenge. I guess I kinda had an epiphany one day: I'm not the one who deserves to die. ...Neither are you.  Hang in there. This too shall pass. *big hugz*

      Kimber, I agree with Jackie, your parents were very accepting and supportive. Especially given that society was so different and so much less accepting back 25 years ago. Your parents loved the real YOU so much. It is a wonderful story.   Life would’ve been so much easier for many of us here if our parents could embrace our real identities. I am so glad yours embraced and accepted you so unconditionally. It sounds like an amazing experience.   I’m so sorry to hear that you had lost two siblings within a year back then. That must have been such a difficult period of your life. I can’t even imagine experiencing that kind of loss in such a short time period. We all have different crosses to bear. No journey through life is an easy one.   *Hugs* Susan R🌷

      This is a one of your colors Linda Marie. Your dress really looks nice with the shoes too. Hard to match outfits that close without a large collection. You can NEVER have too many pairs.😉

      I don’t wanna go back to a mental hospital. That place still terrifies me. Even more bad memories.

      Mostly just the erotic variety that involved a boy being forcibly feminized then diapered and treated like a baby girl lmao. I'm a freak lol. =P

      If you are having this bad a time, it may be necessary for you to go to a hospital or an urgent care provider and see if they can provide you with some medication to help your anxiety about the memories.  You may have to cut your vacation short to deal with this, or maybe it is the vacation environment triggering you.  Please go and get some professional help before you feel compelled to hurt yourself.

      Looking lovely LM. Kaltia Bras are a constant problem with me too. Lacey bras are so pretty but the lace chaffs my skin. Sport bras I wear a lot just because the seem to hold everything in place just fine. My nice bras I save for special occasions.

      I can’t stop remembering. I’m on vacation. I need to relax. I want it to stop. I can’t forget about what he did. I keep trying to make myself forget with things like overdosing, but it doesn’t work anymore. The memories are so loud. I don’t know how to stop this.
