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.

Whoever said autism makes you weird really needs to look at all of the beautiful people who have autism in the world trying to enjoy life, but can't with haters...

Autism is just a struggle we have. Like everybody else,  we have our shit and that shit happens to be autism. Like, fuck. Swear, idiocy of some people. Don't talk shit if you don't know what the fuck you're talking about. XD

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.

For some yes but the disabilitating types can cause mental retardation.  Not to be a "hater" though.

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.

Hello, I have Asperger's, oh yeah and a genius level IQ. I have an idetic memory, had the reading capability of a twenty year old at the age of five, had the capacity for logic and deduction of a Kent University graduate when starting highschool, and had the reading speed and comprehension level of a college professor in 11th grade. I was reading at one and a half years old and by second grade was well versed in the works of Conan Doyle, Jules Verne, C.S. Lewis and Mark Twain.
But yeah, my autism must mean my intelligence is below average.

...There's a thing called high functioning Asperger's/autism and the people who have it are a hell of a lot brighter than the general populace. We just don't socialise or mediate our emotions well as a result.

My brother has autisum; Asperger's and I really hate when people use it as an insult or an excuse. It is horrible. The people who use it for those things don't now what it's like; Heck, they probably don't even know what it is. My brother is VERY smart so people who say autistic people are stupid, are stupid
