I know a lot of people are kind of over the whole “shit people say” meme. But this is the first one about autistics that I have seen and think this video is great. I’ve heard a lot of these comments myself.
Most of the input I get is of the “but you don’t look autistic” variety. A lot of people are well-meaning. Most of the time I don’t get offended because it is due to ignorance and not malice. But when people question whether I’m autistic because I seem “normal” to them it really gets under my skin.
As Wil Wheaton would say, don’t be a jerk!
