Mark Zuckerberg Congressional Hearing


Mark Zuckerberg has been regularly criticised for not seeming “human”, in particular for his congressional testimony on the effect of social media on people’s privacy last year. There are a lot of videos comparing him to robots and aliens

It seems to me that Mark Zuckerberg is fairly obviously an aspie, and that these attacks on his visual appearence and demeanour are ultimately discomfort with people who do use facial expressions or have longer processing times during which they seem to be “whirring”. I felt very uncomfortable with the discourse around the way he performed as I felt it was ultimately quite autphobic, whether he is aspie or not, and wonder whether it is possible to challenge this in any way when it appears?
