Autism... not a dunce cap. by StrawberryR Autism... not a dunce cap. by StrawberryR
Okay, I'm not trying to hate on heavily autistic people or anything, but I was reading a forum earlier (bad mistake) and this guy said that people with autism were all retards.

THERE'S A DIFFERENCE. I have friends with autism, and a friend with some mental retardation. Autism isn't retardation, it's just a disorder that makes people behave differently. Hell, one of my best friends with Aspergers is in National Honor Society and has a 3.8 GPA. She brags about it all the time.

But see? Autism doesn't make you stupid, being stupid makes you stupid.

That is true, but it's a curse to have! I hate being so different from people, I hate that I'm forced to live with limitations by not being able to drive, by not being able to form a relationship with someone I'm in love with so easily unlike others, I hate being disqualified from a job more often than a normal person should be and how it just makes life so fucking hard that even the simplest things I want and/or need in life, it always takes time! And that makes me loathe myself with all my soul!

Autism is not a gift like people lie through their teeth just to make people feel better about themselves, it's a curse! And I'm not saying this because I'm a Non-Autistic that's being a senseless jerk, I'm saying it because it sucks to have it, period! I'd fucking have thousands of people die of an explosion on a balcony just to get rid of it and live a normal, simple and happy life if it were the only way to do that! Kirito's Tea Time

To be brutally honest, I do have autism myself, but I am definitely not an idiot.

It was true that I was behind on my math credits back in secondary school, I didn't take Algebra 1 until I was a junior (Algebra 1 was normally taken by 8th/9th graders) because I took Pre-Algebra in my 8th grade, freshman, and second sophomore years.  I actually did well in Pre-Algebra on all three times, but I didn't take Algebra 1 until my junior year because I didn't receive the credits I would've gotten because of my special education placement and I skipped math on my first sophomore year, although I was originally intended to take Algebra 1 on that year.  Luckily for me, despite being a junior taking Algebra 1, I was the best performing in this class and I was surprised there were no freshmen in my Algebra 1 class.  I also took HONORS Geometry and Algebra 2 during my senior year, and both courses are what I would've taken as a sophomore if it weren't for my condition.  Despite being behind in my high school math courses, I did pretty well in every attempt, smart enough that I would've had Pre-Calculus as a junior/senior.  

Yes, I did attend high school for FIVE consecutive academic years, not four, and two of my high school years were 10th grade level and my first three years stuck in the freshman academy; I did pass all my freshman/sophomore classes with ease (although I struggled through my second English 9 attempt), but I was required to retake them to regain the credits I didn't earn because I switched to the diploma track halfway through my second year of high school.  Despite that, I still took special education English classes on my sophomore and junior years and Chemistry in the Community in my junior year.

I may have been behind on my math credits, I may have attended freshman academy classes for three years in a row, and I may have had some special education classes, but I was still a genius anyway.  Hell, I was genius enough to be an honors student if it weren't for my condition.

Again, I would like to be honest with you, I do have autism and I am definitely an aspie, but I'm pretty intelligent.  Also, don't get me wrong, my own original artwork is actually really good for some deviant artist with autism, but largely unappreciated.  Maybe my artwork should need a little more love.

I don't believe in autism. (Don't get mad at me, it's because I don't think it's a necessary classification. We're all human beings, so why does it matter?)

exactly, I have autism and I was able to hack Super Princess Peach and make Larry Koopa Playable, I just went into the codes, took a random code hoping that it was Larry's unused code, and replaced peach's code with it, the hack is glitchy as H*** right now, but it actually works.

I hate it when people think that everyone with Autism is retarded.

I have an IQ of over 130. (And that's just a rough estimate )
I'm in gifted at my school, I'm in 8th grade and taking Algebra 1, I frequently get 100s, and I'm somehow retarded because I am Autistic.

This stamp is the best.

You are welcome. :) I find it pathetic that people think that just because somebody is autistic it means they're stupid. It should be the other way around like the people ,that think that autistics are dumb, are actually the idiots or just very ignorant.

I have asperger's and unfortunately, it didn't really give me the smart gene. My brain doesn't have the capacity to remember the times tables, I have a short memory, I have difficulty processing what things mean, and I'm very dumb. However I'm capable of drawing very nicely, being talented with writing fiction, and being smart with computers and technology.. Sometimes I don't get it. Why am I so dim-witted yet so clever?
Wow I sound like I have an ego, but I'm not trying to.. LOL

hi i just saw this comment and have to say, your not the only one. I experience the same exact thing.
i have aspergers like you do and my memory is short, i have a hard time remembering my times tables if they arent ones, zeros, fives and tens. i can have difficulty remembering simple things, such as chores as well.
however i do have a huge talent in drawing and my autism makes it hard for me to draw much more than dragons and the occassional canine or so. i am practicing other things but it comes with difficulty. i find it hard to draw things i really love other than dragons and canines, such as transformers. it sucks sometimes and i am not fond of making drawings for others since i lose interest in it quickly, even if i enjoy the subject.
apart from that i also have bad grades and i must live also with tourettes syndrome.
yeah it really sucks but i just thought i would let you know that your not alone.
i suffer alot from my disorders.
