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 wanna say a few words about autism c: 
Autism is a gift and a curse. I myself do have autism. I have been bullied, not just by students but by teachers and parents, since first grade because I was different. Flapped my arms when I got excited or made a weird noise. Clapped my hands around my ears in the classroom because it was too loud. Kids with autism see the world in a way others cannot see it. My mother works with kids with autism as her job and has recently noticed that kids with autism will be spacing out in class but suddenly when the teacher asks something they know they snap back and raise their hand and answer the question. Severely autistic people are smart as well. Very. Go hug my brother and see if you still have your keys in your pocket XD. But no seriously, my brother has severe autism and he is doing 7th grade reading, math, language. But what we dont get. Is why people are always calling us retards and there is always someone around the corner thats going to push us down and laugh....

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.

Wow. Your lucky. Autism makes me do stupid things. Not all the time, but still.

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 :)
