Anyway on this I’m here to remind you that autistic people are almost never bullied for being autistic, but rather for being “weird.” Autistic people express themselves differently, use different language, and experience things like gender and sexuality differently than neurotypical people. Keep this in mind next time you’re rolling your eyes at someone you find embarrassing online


The great riddle is why 'weird' is such a problem, given that the real dangers are often the most familiar, and conformist.

@FirstProgenitor If people would accept "weird" more, there would be less problems. There is no point in limiting this allowance to persons with any kind of diagnoseable condition.
