i don't give 2 fucks for aspies since they do nothing for society, have no intelligence or good hygine, and they mooch off welfare just to waste money. also they die early and are self-centered jerks who hate gays and others for no reason other than because they are too stupid to communicate. dumb ass autistic fucks csn't even move from there parents house since they are poor.
I have autism... Having autism is like being an alien trying to adapt to human life but never fully succeeding. So you turn inward into a world of music in the hope that one day you will enchant the humans with your tails alienation.
i've got one for describing autism
i'ts like everyone with autism has a tardis, it's the same but deeper inside it's vastly different and unique for everyone. also you could get lost (in thought) and when your under pressure the tardis will sound the cloister bells really loudly.
When I was in Year 6 someone said to me "your family needs to get treatment for your brother's autism, he's acting really weird," or something along those lines.
I started chasing them with a compass, resisting the urge to just chase them to the music room and push them out of the window.
I said to my mum the other day, that the only way I would ever get my autism "cured" (first of all, autism is not an illness, second, it is lifelong), would be if there was some way of getting it back if I wanted. I have no clue if life would actually be better for me without it.
BTW, I don't believe that whole thing about the MMR vaccine being linked to autism.
I can understand that. I personally am in the camp of desperately wanting a cure. Most of the time people who stubbornly state a cure isn't needed refuse to think that some people could want it. Or the good it would do for the most severe cases.
I have autism and I take it as a huge compliment when someone says that I don’t look autistic or they would never have guessed I had it. It really depends on the person. Thankfully it’s completely unnoticeable and I’ve only told it to my closest friend and people in therapy settings.
Was anyone else asked really wild questions when having an assessment at an older age (I'm 16)?
Like I was asked, "Where does money come from?"
"Do you want a long term relationship?"
"What do your parents spend money on?"
"Why do people get married?" or did assessor pick up the wrong form? lmao
Well, after working in a UK primary school, I've met several children with autism. I must say though, I learned nothing from this video. You have a platform here and you have wasted it. Stop trying to be edgy and funny and just tell it like it is.
"Pulling through their autism" isn't really a thing. Autistic people can be any intelligence, from being intellectually disabled to being a genius. I'm assuming you meant this as a compliment but it sounds like you could use more exposure to autistic adults. I would suggest Amythest Schaber's channel as a place to start. https://www.youtube.com/user/neurowonderful
People should NEVER call people with ASD crazy,mad,looney,retarded,stupid, freak, ocd Case, nutcase, etc etc, people need stop calling names to ASD people and minority groups just quit it ! Autism is complex and people with it can’t always express themselves in a way that’s understandable to people without the condition !
yes some people think that people with autism are dum NO it's just hard to commucate with body language twice as worse with crushes he like trying to speak with someone that has compelty different language
I have Hyperlexia and some people mistake me for having autism and whenever I tell someone I have Hyperlexia they says “ Oh, so you just want to cover it up?” They also say “Your just doing it for attention!” Like no I legit have Hyperlexia and it IS a real thing!
I’m an individual living with autism I was diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder when I was 3 years old it’s a mild form and it runs in my family my fathers side of the family has a history of autism my cousins have it autism feels like a disease to me living with autism is a struggle at times Theres a lot of struggles I face with it
Can i just say. My younger brother has autism, and he is rude, too social, and looks autistic.
Because of this i struggle with special needs people, since thats the stuff i have to deal with. You dont get used to it, and it doesnt change. Its like have a billion other siblings.
I'm an autistic 13 year old girl and I get one of these the most. "How would you describe Autism?" It pisses me off, I literally just wanna say "AUTISM IS A PROBLEM I HAVE, IT'S A DISORDER. JUST SHUT UP AND GOOGLE IT!!!" I've had to tell my class about Autism when I was only 5 years old. The worst part is my brother has Autism too, but he has it worse.
Plz like this to help find a cure for Autism
Man bun, guns and roses shirt, flannel people have good taste.
And this is so relatable like even my family pretty much put everything I do to being autistic.
I do something good aww it's a gift from being autistic.
Struggle doing something oh it's the autism.
And yes I have a serious lack of empathy but that's because I'm a bunch of physical and mental diagnosis including personality disorders so it's nothing to do with my autism.
Good overall message here but these guys just seems so much more sensible than most of the autistic students in my school... They should actually get someone who suffers severely from autism and hear their opinion. Because as my slightly autistic friend said himself, being slightly autistic isn’t that different from being normal, for him it’s more on the emotional side, but to be honest, I act like him but I was never diagnosed with autism.
Well they are adults, so they may have been more similar to the people at your school when they were in school themselves. Additionally, there may be autistics in your school who you don't know are autistic who may blend in. Also, we do not know how these people are in their everyday life. While they may be verbal, that doesn't tell us anything about their sensory sensitivities, need for routine, executive function, and more.
I have autism and i go to a special school with all autistic children some cant speak some can ony five can speak and there all in a groop i am one of them five. Somedays its hard because people just cant understand were your comming from so they just try to avoid you. I only have two good friends my dog and my other friend Xavier Xavier has autism to so we get along verry well because we understand. But i have one thing to say to people without autism. Maybe go and learn about autism and the way we are please do not avoid us we are not differant. Dont fear us. Treat us like everybody elts because we are not differant were just miss understood.
Im 12 years old and i have autism i use to have anger issues i can handle anger now but the biggest way to piss me off is to say autistic people are dangerous so if you want a punch in the face go up to a autistic person and say autism people are dangress
I have autism and when I was in school I wore headphones (because I thought ear defenders were too noticeable) but everyone asked me why had them and me and my friends would make up stuff,but there was this one time this boy shouted at me right at my ear and I screamed at him "DON'T TOUCH ME!!!" but it is quite hard having autism, but still it makes you different which is good even if you don't have it, love yourself for who you are and don't love what people *want* you too be you are perfect the way you are and if you are a bully stop just stop I know you may be going though a hard time but think about other people's feelings I know I just a stranger on the internet but you have to listen too me we are all humans treat others the way you want to be treated.
- A loving stranger on the Internet❤️❤️❤️
gamelvr1 he can speak I try to remember and I don’t like being rude to people I try to understand but if you are wrong you are wrong like I was harassed and I never got help he never got in trouble I have bad skill to but I usually stay away from people idk when u was harassed I think I stopped caring and started being scared of autistic guys until I met this nice one I never meant it out of meanness I was in a bad place and judged a lot of people for one person mistake
What about the people whose autism is so severe, that they'll never be able to live an independent life. Autism is a huge spectrum. For some it's like you're saying. You're lucky. For plenty of others, it's a curse. I myself fall into that category. I would give anything to rid myself of it.
People who think if you have autism you're stupid. Uh, all of the people with autism I know are super smart. Apart from me, I have it but I'm not that smart (despite people telling me I am). Just, don't say that to people with any mental illness actually.
Back when I was in grade 2 or 3, there was a boy who I noticed didn't have anyone to play with, and at the time I didn't have a friend either so I started playing with him and we became good friends. But then I noticed that a lot of the kids in my class (mostly the girls actually) were sometimes making fun of him, and they started making fun of me too and saying I shouldn't be hanging out with him. I continued to play with him and continued to be made fun of for associating myself with him. Eventually I found out he was autistic, and the girls told me that was why they made fun of him, and continued to tell me I shouldn't be hanging out with him. 8-year-old me didn't know what 'autistic' meant and still didn't understand why they made fun of him, to me he just seemed like a nice boy who was actually nice enough to hang out with me, which was better than the kids in my own class who usually ignored or excluded me. I later learned what autistic meant but still didn't understand why that gave them a reason to make fun of him. At the time I thought I was the one who hadn't been educated enough because I had never even heard the word 'autistic' at the time while the others I'm my class seemed to already know about it, but looking back now I realise the others in my class were the uneducated ones because they seemed to think they had a good reason to bully someone. There is no such thing as a good reason to bully someone and there is nothing wrong with autistic people, and they are perfectly capable of being friends with a non-autistic person so I don't know why my classmates had such a problem with me being friends with him.
I have two cousins who are autistic one is in his teen years and the other is a adult they both are very different the older one is very smart he just lacks communication skills but he’s been very successful and he has a job, my other cousin moved to a school for teens with special needs and he been doing really well with his speaking and emotions mainly because he has other people like him that he can relate to. Every person with autism is very different
I watched a video before called try not to get autism...it was like a try not to laugh challenge but really rude. There was also another one with something special (mr tumble) which focused on disabled children and autistic children, and the video I watched would zoom in on all the children and say rude things about them, mainly the autistic ones. It really hurt me. Yes, all these things people say in this video are SUPER annoying, but personally, the thing that annoys me to no end is when people use Autism as an insult.
Having Autism and having puberty is the worst thing ever! I feel like I’m a terrible person that deserves no love at all. Of course, I’m being dramatic, but that’s the problem. Autism just literally screws all the “oh, I’m just overreacting, I will just calm do-“ NO! My problem with having Autism is the sensation of “Believing”. I just can’t believe, it’s just so hard and during puberty, it just makes you feel so much worse. For anybody under the age of when you get puberty with Autism, try and be happy. I made the mistake and so far it’s the worst mistake I have ever made of my life.
Im on the autism spectrum and the thing she said about its like people are talking a different language and that is so true like I really can't understand some people's body language or emotions but I have lots of empathy for people just in the wrong sense
I have a friend with Aspergers who used to be roasted all the time at school. I never understood why, he was normal like everyone else. One day he told everyone he had Aspergers, and everyone then called him retarded for a solid 2 years. Luckily no one cares any more
heather it’s a spectrum disorder. Different people are on different parts of the spectrum. For example, people with aspergers are high functioning whereas other autistics may be low functioning and never be independent
My cousin is autistic and he's my favourite person to be around. I'm an introvert and I love being around autistic people. They make me feel instantly comfortable and I don't feel that need to explain myself like I do with other people.
