The bad thing about being autistic isn't being autistic- it's being in a society that treats autistic people like shit...
After all we live in a society where anti-vaxxers use us as a political football, and organisations that "support" autistic people are too busy spouting out scare story after scare story so they can sell industrialised bleach to scared and ignorant parents.
After all we live in a society where any autistic person who dares to speak out or write a blog about their experiences "isn't really autistic" or happens to be a lying thieving bastard trying to cheat the system.
After all we live in a society where organisations try to remove our methods of self regulations by telling us to have 'quiet hands' or that we should stop engaging with our special interests, and we should do things that are physically painful to us so other people don't find us weird or bully us.
If I suddenly woke up NT, then I would not be the same person because autism affects just about everything.
