About me

I am a 16 year old in the United States. I was diagnosed with autism at a young age.

What I think about autism

  • Autism has existed as long as mankind has, it is not a new condition at all.
  • I would be considered high-functioning but I hate functioning labels.
  • I do not use the Asperger's label.
  • I prefer identity-first language over person-first language.
  • I really hate the word "autist".
  • I support neurodiversity.
  • People are born autistic, nobody gets/becomes it.
  • Autism is a part of you, you don't "have" and removing it will change you into a completely different person.
  • I strongly oppose the anti-vaccine movement and I believe it is extremely harmful.
  • Therapies that focuses on forcing the child to act neurotypical are abusive.
  • There is nothing inherently wrong with speculating that a historical figure was autistic; I hope it would be more accepted in the future, so if that bothers you, that is your own personal problem.
