ThrobbinGoblin t1_j1myi05 wrote

I'm pretty sure that autism of some sort runs in the men in my family because they are all like this, and nowadays if I take a psychological test they see it in me. I think that the only difference is that they didn't test for it or really know much about it back then, so men just had to mask their entire lives and deal with it or die single and childless.

I know this because when I was growing up it wasn't really a well tested for thing and I had to mask. And OPs story sounds like something I would do.

chantendo64 t1_j1nkqgy wrote

I think there’s also something to be said for it going on for generations and that being the normal for the family. My boyfriend and his dad act so similarly in some ways. Early on in our relationship I very gently suggested to him I thought he might have autism and he didn’t believe me at first because of how his dad acts and that that was their family’s normal. He ended up getting tested and was diagnosed. So I think along with the lack of testing there’s also a component of not thinking that testing is needed.

“Spectrum” is a poor word because it implies a number line type deal, ranging from “not autistic” to “extremely autistic.” It’s more like a color wheel, where each color represents a symptom, and each color can be thought of as its own number line, where each autistic has more or less of each individual symptom. I am autistic.

Not to mention that Google was founded in 1998. Prior to Google there really wasn’t an easy way to search out knowledge, let alone e-commerce being a thing. But the first credited search engine that I know of is Archie, which was created in 1990. This story takes place 6 years before I was born: in 1975. Either this story is completely fabricated, or the names & details have been changed to protect the innocent. Such as the “dad” in the story is actually OP, and this story actually happened within the last few years.

OP isn’t making shit up, just probably couldn’t think of the name. My dad and his brothers made an ad for one far before the 90s that they called the “shoe-dry” but it was intended for old dudes that had trouble not pissing on their shoes. Not a new concept by any means.

Technically that may not have been the literal name of the product. I had to Google to find a name for a female urine funel thing. Plus the brand names in Canada may have been different from US names. The closest match I could find was the "she-wee". But for sure it was a plastic lady pee gizmo.

OP, I hate to break it to you, but this is exactly what people with autism were described as before ASD became a diagnosis. And it's nothing to be ashamed of, this is a funny story and I'm sure your dad was a lovable guy.

But..hypothetically someone could have had a somewhat isolated or informal upbringing and have less “socially guarded/careful” oriented approach to life without being “on the spectrum”, no? I mean is everything really about adhd and autism? What about, i dunno..general diversity of human experience?

ooooooooooooolivia t1_j1n9bn5 wrote

What, like the diversity of humans within the autism spectrum? We're all technically at some point within it.

Yes, there are "weird" people and also people who were raised in a very secluded environment. But there's also just people who exhibit many symptoms which make ASD a very understandable explanation to anyone who knows what having autism is like

ooooooooooooolivia t1_j1oseer wrote

What I meant was: all people are neurodiverse to some degree. We all have traits that would be considered signs of autism, but some people have more than others or are impacted more by them, and that's when it gets diagnosed as a disorder.

Autism is not a clearly defined genetic or physical trait; the line we draw to say someone has it is artificial. Autism being a complex disorder almost necessarily means some factors will occur in nearly all people. There's like hundreds of genes that relate to it

A few years ago a bunch of friends and i were clubbing. Club was rather full and so were the toilets. So us 3 guys ended up going together into a single stall, starting to pee and all simultaneously yell to not cross the streams. 3 guys having the same stupid idea at the exact same time.

It's not exactly a product meant to be used at home with a toilet. More of a "camping or stuck in traffic emergency but want to expose self as little as possible" product.

ph4mp573r t1_j1nahhm wrote

I can't find any device on the market at that time. In fact the first device to market seems to have been in 1993, a few years before the SheWee.

However, there are two parents of interest in the right time period:

https://patents.google.com/patent/US3177500A/en

https://patents.google.com/patent/US3964111A/en

The second, from 1975 has the exact purpose as the SheWee, and it's patent expiration of 1993 coincides with such products hitting the market. It's theoretically possible the original inventor sold some small scale in the decades between 1975 and 1993, and the sudden adoption when the patent expires shows there was intetest, but no way to prove it that I can find.

These things are fantastic if you need to work long shifts alone in a boom or scissor lift. I used to avoid lift calls (a type of lighting work in film and TV) until a male supervisor cracked open a supply drawer and gave me one. He liked to send the Teamsters (big burly biker types mostly) to pick them up, so that he could put the women on the team in the air. Life changing. I ended up loving lift calls - hours and hours either driving these big fuckoff machines around or tucked up cozy in a sleeping bag watching Rick and Morty with a panoramic view of the whole city while the ground crew busted their asses. Highly recommended!

Also popular with pilots apparently.

So, what does she think of it now? I'm sure she finds it funny, because if she didn't you would probably have broke up long ago.

Honestly I’d be thrilled to get one. Road trips would be so much easier/ I’ve got the bladder of w cocker spaniel puppy and sometimes if you’re driving in the middle of the night … it’s hard to find a bathroom

I would have loved it! I have a similar funnel now, for road trips, festivals, and concerts. He was very considerate.

My GF from college, a Bar Harbor girl from Maine, wanted me to come back with her for winter break to her home town in Bar Harbor Maine. To make a long story short, the conversation of snow shoeing came up with her Mom and Dad and younger sister, because I guess that's one of the fun things to do when there's a foot of snow on the ground during the winter. I don't know when or how the outdoorsy, snow shoeing conversation took a strange turn, but it did when her Mom started talking about how a woman goes pee with all that clothing on, while wearing snow shoes and all the other gear. Just like a bolt of lightning the mom jumps up and runs into the other room and returns clutching something in her hand. "Ya, see.... You don't have to take your pants down or worry about falling in your own pee with this device...." She produces a funnel of some sort like what OP was describing. I thought it was a joke and looked over at the family (GF, younger sister and the dad), my GF's head in her hands, with both the younger sister and father red-faced, dying of laughter. Then the mom proceeds to show me how to use it. That was a really interesting dinner.

Your dad used the top notch cognitive dissonance techniques to make you look really different than other average boring boys and their families. Even if she would be able to break up with you after such a bonding - she would never forget you.

Something to remember when your grandson will bring his first girlfriend to your Christmas party.

1975? If you are 63, 1999 is when it was invented. Or 39? Not 16.

It’s not a FU. This is the timeline where you’re happily together with her.

Thank you, this made me smile and I really needed it. I also think the gift is a bit sweet as well. I have had to pee quite a few times out in the wild and having to squat and worry about pee splashing on my ankles was quite a disadvantage in those cases. The newness of the relationship does make it awkward though haha

My brother in law got one for my mom for Christmas one year because my parents camp. I was laughing. So hard. It was a gag gift kinda. But I think she probably brings it camping. Perfect gift for the ladies in your life. 😂😂

The way in which you described that this GF is now your wife after 47 years would make your quirky dad proud.

Sounds like a She-Wee for the chicks in your life is the way to go, present wise. Now they can experience the joy of writing their names in the snow, without the hassle of having to scuttle around like a crab to do it.

I hate these tifu posts that start with "this happened 50 years ago". Totally sounds like they fucked up today.
