This is sort of related… my child is on the autism spectrum and we have tons of friends in this community. ADHD is always a comorbidity of autism, but I’ve noticed a disproportionate number of our friends with kids on the spectrum identify as either lesbian or genderqueer. My daughter feels she is bi so we have all spoken openly about it. We think it may just be that because many of us aren’t cis and are neurodiverse ourselves (I have ADHD) that our kids just don’t have the hang-ups and stigmas placed on them to conform that previous generations have had and can be more confident expressing who they are. It’s pretty awesome actually and it makes my heart happy.
