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.

I have Aspergers just like the girl in the description. I am getting an A in Algebra, an A in High School Level Science (I'm in 8th Grade and taking AP courses), National Junior Honor Society, Student Council, I write for the school newspaper, I have a LOT of friends, and I am part of the Drama Department, Choral and Band Departments. I am a second chair Tuba and an amazing Tenor in Choir.

Autism doesn't make you stupid.

It makes you different.

I have autism, and it makes me sad seeing people who have autism being called 'stupid'.. I feel like when people think about autistic people, they think they don't have friends, stay quiet all the time, or being a loner (I'm sometimes like that, but I have friends..).. Thanks for making this stamp! :heart:

I love people who make these kind of stamps because they are true. Autism doesn't mean anything bad so people need to quit saying that. i have a brother and my mom who is autistic and i just despise and hate the people who use autism as an insult. Thank you for making this stamp :)

People who believe Autism makes you stupid is only hiding their lack of intelligence.

100% agreed on this, I have minor aspergers and all I see on a lot of comments online esp youtube if someone is insulting someone is do you have autism and that's bang out of order (some peoples ignorance really astounds Me).
