as someone with autism myself i deffinatly identify with these ppl because while i am hfa i still was ashamed of it at first. hell there a times even now where i feel like the benefits i get because of my autism i feel should go to someone lower on the spectrum cause they need it more than i do. i was originally diagnosed with aspergers but when i was 17 is when i was officially diagnosed with autism. and while at first i didnt like the autism memes i grew to ignore them or laugh at them cause i saw it as they just dont understand so i might as well laugh at them instead of try to correct them on something i dont fully understand myself. but now im a self advocate and i have a full time job and a car. i mean yea sometimes i wish ppl could see my disability just to understand better but ik if it was physical as well that id unfortunatly get more abuse than what i did growing up. but i also had a very supportive family growing up and hell my sister is my provider and helps me out alot with stuff i dont fully understand. so i guess if anyone reads this the best take away is that no matter what part of the spectrum your on there will always be ppl there to support and help you. even if you feel like no one really is. things do get better and you will eventually find happiness just never give up.

​@hijabi210 Many autistics prefer autistic people because for many of us autism plays a very huge role in our lives and we don't see our autism as an accessory, it's who we are.

​@Rusty Recommends Yes, the puzzle piece was made by ignorant allistics who thought we were something to fix and we were "mysterious", and suffered from a puzzling disorder. Big eugenics talk! The color scheme and use of the puzzles is also very childish and doesn't at all represent most autistics who are adults, it infantilizes us. The symbol also implies ABA therapy which is autism conversion therapy that is very well known to leave autistic children with PTSD. Us autistics had no say in how we'd like to be represented until now where we're finally having our voices heard. We prefer the the rainbow and gold infinity signs. Gold meaning autistic and rainbow meaning neurodivergent. We are very diverse group of people :)! We're people, not puzzles. (also p.s, don't support Autism Speaks!)

The most common thing that make me stop for a moment is when I see something that reminds me that autism is a spectrum. I'm either high functioning on the spectrum or have Asperger's. I honestly don't like meeting other people who are lower functioning or have it worse than me because it makes me feel uncomfortable. It makes me uncomfortable because it makes me feel insecure and self conscious about being autistic and having my behavior slip up. I also feel guilty about being uncomfortable when I see some autistic people. Am I a bad person for this?

I have some close family and friends that have autism. Because of them, I don’t really see it as a disorder, but as a differently wired. I treat the like I would treat anyone without autism. There’s so much they can do and I’ve seen them do some many great things, but are judged because of their autism. If you’re reading this and you have autism, go follow your dreams. Prove people wrong who don’t believe in you. I believe in you. So just have fun while you’re still here.

This was a pretty good introduction to autism; just some pointers I'd like to mention to anyone who might not know. There are a large number of people who dislike "person first language" i.e. saying "person with autism" rather than "autistic person". As I understand it, person first language is erroneous and offensive for two main reasons. The first is that autism describes a particular neurotype. You are either neurotypical/allistic or neurodivergent. There are many ways to be neurodivergent including being autistic, having adhd, being dyslexic, and so on. Because it is the way your neurology is actually structured, it is how your brain physically IS - and so you ARE autistic, as much as you ARE your brain (just as much as you ARE allistic, not having "allism" - which, isn't really even a word). The second reason is that "having" autism mirrors the language of having a disease, e.g. you "have" the flu, you aren't the flu. There is a sinister undercurrent in person first language that reflects a long history of discrimination against autistic people that we are now trying to re-write. When autistic people are encouraged to describe themselves as "having autism" rather than "being autistic" it suggests we have to separate ourselves from it, rather than seeing autism as being an inseparable feature of our self-hood and being in the world. Further, it makes it sounds like you have a disease and a disease is something you don't want. I, for one, am fine with being autistic and it is not something I want to get rid of. There is nothing intrinsically wrong with being autistic; we instead need to restructure ableist systems and beliefs within our society/culture that teach us that there is. I know that Richard described themselves as some who has autism, and they listed their reasons for saying so - but it should be noted that person first language has its own issues even if autistic people themselves endorse it. A second thing I would like to make note of are comments surrounding “the spectrum” and functioning labels. When Anthony asked the interviewees what the spectrum was, some people explained that there are low-functioning and high-functioning autistics, some of whom might have been diagnosed with Aspergus (a type of autism). Again, this is language that we have all been taught to use and are in the process of un-learning. There are alot of incorrect assumptions and problematic beleifs about autistic people and their ability to “function” that we need to change.. Some autistic people still use this language because it was what was drilled into us, particularly as a tool for understanding our own position and utility in the world. They might not have access to information that explains why functioning labels are detrimental to our cultural understanding of autism. But, it is again entrenched in a long history of discrimination against autistic people. I’ll explain why now: When we think of autistic people as high or low functioning, we are measuring their utility or usefulness in relation to an allistic paradigm. What I mean by this, is that we are judging the value of an autistic person and their behaviour according to a dominant idea of what it means to be “normal” or “functioning”. It’s like if we said gay people are more or less functioning by virture of their ability to act straight. It just doesn’t really make sense. The world is set up for allistic people, and autistic people will either have an easier or harder time assimilating to it. When someone assimilates well, they get called “high functioning” and might actually be hiding a lot of their autistic traits (which is called “masking”). This can be really exhausting for the autistic person, and people around them can start to assume they don’t need any help or support. When someone is labelled “low functioning” they have a harder time assimilating; it doesn’t mean they have less value or intelligence but people start to assume that. A lot of people will try and “correct” this behaviour, which can be incredibly damaging to neurodivergent people’s mental and physical health. Instead of making adjustments to environments, institutions, policies, and interpersonal dynamics to better accommodate autistic needs and traits, functioning labels basically allow us (as a society) to disregard all the ways in which the world is already hostile towards autistic minds and force autistic people to sink or swim. Basically, describing someone as low functioning is like saying “you’re useless to society” and descrbining someone as high functioning is like saying, “you’re good enough to society that we don’t have to worry about you”. It’s actually a pretty cruel way of going about things and unfortunately alot of people, autistics included, get indoctrinated into this way of thinking. So, when we talk about the spectrum, we’re actually talking about a diverse range of people with a diverse range of needs. We’re not talking about whether they are high or low functioning, but instead what they do and don’t need from the people and world around them in order to be the healthiest, happiest versions of themselves. For example, I am prone to sensory overload - where sights, sounds, and smells become really overwhelming and impede my ability to take in information. Sometimes when the phone is ringing at work and a customer is trying to talk to me, I cannot hear what they are saying until someone hangs up the phone. A need I have is to have a quiet work environment, or time alone, or to stim (create physical stimulus to help emotional regulation, best to google this one) in order to help me feel calm and coherent. Concurrently, the diagnosis of Aspergus syndrome is problematic and outdated as has been removed from the DSM. It was originally given to autistic people who were seen as high functioning. As you can see, this language is no longer useful given our updated understanding of autism. The spectrum should be thought of as a vast array of different needs, not a barometer of high of low function on which we can place/value different autistic people. I know that Anthony has a really wide reach on the internet, and I thought this video did a fantastic job of dispelling alot of the harmful myths around autism. However, there are definitely things that Anthony and the interviewees left out or could not address in this format, which is why I thought it was important to write this comment - albeit quite long, and still only the tip of the iceburg. If you read through this and learned something, please up vote my comment so that more people see it. It’s important for people who are learning about autism to know where autistic activism is currently at, so that we don’t keep indoctrinating people into harmful linguistic patterns and inaccurate ways of articulating autistic realties. Thank you!

I was diagnosed with autism in elementary school. I never read into it, but was definitely bullied and struggled socially. I quite honestly forgot I had autism (honestly should of gotten a second opinion on diagnosis) and thought that I just had a delay in understanding speech and social cues. Over time I found my own ways of communicating with people that are comfortable to me. Sure some times are tough to talk with people, I have to remind myself to maintain eye contact, but I’ve found fun ways to make me socially enjoyable to interact with. This is my case and not at all like anyone else. Now, I’ve graduated top of class at UT Austin with a degree in Aerospace Engineering and I work full-time at NASA JPL. It’s been so long since my diagnosis. But I think the important thing here is no matter what u are, whatever that may be, u can do anything. Be the best version of yourself that u can be and everything else will fall into place.

I have a feeling I’m autistic. I am not diagnosed but I wish I had the guts to ask my mum to take me to a therapist so I could be rightfully aware. I am very emotional and I will cry if I get just a little stressed. When people try to comfort me it doesn’t really help. Thinking about it now I’m crying. I don’t know what it is and I don’t want to sound rude by saying I think I’m autistic but I really don’t know.

Honestly, one of my coworkers who became one of my best friends, he has autism and I honestly had no idea. Like I knew him for a year and a half and I had no idea until he straight up said it. He’s literally one of the nicest, funniest, most brilliant people I have ever met and I consider myself lucky to have met him. He’s the best!

This is a good video but I do thing it would be very interesting if you had people on different parts of the spectrum. Clearly they are all high functioning. Some of these stories are sad and crazy to me. They remind me of a lot of my friends. People for some reason thinks that they need to act weird towards autistic people. They are just like everyone else depending on where on the spectrum they are you need to be more patient but some of my closest friends are autistic. I’m a Psy major with a lot of friends whom are autistic along with a few family members so I guess I just have more experience and understand those things a little better. It just drives me crazy when people talks down to people and make them feel stupid just because they are autistic. Another issue I’ve seen are some kids who are diagnosed young get taught growing up that everything they do wrong is because they are autistic so they never try and grow and help themselves, some are taught to use it as an excuse. A lot of people don’t realize that being autistic doesn’t make them stupid or unable to learn. Children with autism need to be corrected and potentially punish for doing something wrong just like any other child, all children need to be disciplined and get taught right from wrong. (And by punishment and discipline I do not mean physical harm I mean time outs or getting a privilege taken away for a day or two)

I have speech delay and auditory processing, also development disabilities. But people have misunderstood me or labeled me gossip or not as autistic. Pisses me off, but doesn't matter if I did or not. Disabilities are our abilities. I still get discriminated everywhere by activism, workplace (f those places), my own sister, my aunt, school, teachers, students back in my school days, animal sanctuaries, etc. People with disabilities like me are treated like we don't exist. Are incapable, a burden, look of pity, "are you going somewhere with this", mocked, shamed for being me, often feel like world is against me. Nothing is wrong with us, something's wrong with those shitheads.
