As for a male: Nobody really knows what this mixed gift is. It's supposed to be more common among boys. I've thought perhaps a girl with poor sports coordination, a bookish focus, and less ability to read others without thinking might be noticed less / worry the parents less and never have the diagnosis made. An aspie who learns diplomatic skills & has a socially useful focus is among the most likeable people.
