First my many disclaimers:
- I am responding to thoughts I have had regarding how hard it must be to be a neurotypical person and have most of your mind taken up with social, how can I put this politely, inconsequencies. And how the higher concentration of logic and ordered thinking available with the autistic brain could better cope with well, organising life. This is not to say I hate all neurotypical people and that they should be rounded up and … Some of my best friends are neurotypical. I think they are my friends, they tell me I’m a friend, admittedly neurotypicals have all kinds of friendship rules and… My mother is neurotypical, but I haven’t let that blind me, I am sure that is not absolute proof against them. (Ha Ha she doesn’t read this blog anymore so I am free to say whatever I like). My point is that this is not just another pointless rant against those poor unfortunates burdened by neurotypical brains (for the initiated normal brains as opposed to autistic or optimal brains). In fact this argument may come out in their favour. I haven’t thought this through yet, if I do I may forget the first part before I write it down, especially if it is depressing.
- All autistic people are not the same! Some of them are horrible. I know, it’s hard to believe especially if I am the only autistic person you know. I mean it’s not even that they don’t reach my standard of lovability; there are some neurotypical people that are nicer than some autistic people. It just goes to show, you can’t always judge a person by their disability. So I am writing this hypothetical as if all autistic people were like either me or autistic people I have met. Due to therapy & activities and stuff I have met a few hundred autistic people, I don’t know them well, but I have been able to make observations. I know there are autistic people that can hold down a job and go out in public without becoming ill, I have no idea how they do it, I can not, my life is restricted by weird symptoms every day that limit every aspect of my life. So I am not talking about those wonder autistics!
- I am allowed to pick on autistic people because I am one. I know that is the get out of jail free card on Political correctness, I have seen it on TV. I can make fun of women, white people, autistic people, stay at home mums, people who live with their parents, pet owners and fat people. I can so I will!
So much for the preamble but was I actually going somewhere, Find out soon!
