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.

As someone with autism, myself, I totally agree with you.  Why, I even created a character as a means to mock those who mock autism.  Here he is:

His name is N. Stan Gatorr (yes, the double-r is deliberate).  He is my evil twin, and has the general mentality of an internet troll.  He's one of those people who "don't like what they don't understand".  He is willing to mock anyone with disabilities, especially autism.  Like I said, before, I was trying to mock those types of people when creating him.  Originally, though, he was created as a means for me to mock the "Arthur" episode, "Arthur's Big Hit" (a.k.a. the episode where they messed up the moral that violence is wrong, specifically by setting it up to potentially teach about respect for others' property).

I have autism, but I am quite smart. When it comes to exams I don't revise, instead relying on my memory to recall information. But I hate the stereotypes related to autistic people.

From what I've noticed with my own Autistic traits Autism is in part not having filters on your senses so you see, hear, and notice everything all at once.

The human mind though cannot process all that input though which results in the brain being overloaded.

Hear ye Hear Ye!! Autism has such a stigma. When I tell people I have it, they either think I am lying or very brave to say so. Weird as hell.

Get this. I have Aspergers too just FYI.

I was reading an article explaining the 5x rate of Autism since 07, and it said that TV and Internet are explaining us to more info in one day then out ancestors did in their lifetime. The brain can't handle all that with "normal people" so it has to evolve. Autistic kids can absorb info like a sponge.

Meaning, that the outcast of today may be the next evolution of mankind, and therefore actually superior to those who mock us.
