Best quote about autism:
„I’m autistic, which means everyone around me has a disorder that makes them say things they don’t mean, not care about structure, fail to hyper focus on singular important topics, have unreliable memories, drop weird hints and creepily stare into my eyeballs.“

„So why do people say YOU’re the weird one?“

„Because there’s more of them than me.“



As every time: It's only a question of the perspective.


Thanks a lot for that link! I shall have a good look around.

I quite like that perspective about normal people -- after some critical reflection I'd have to add, though, that I don't really find autistic people easier to understand than others. They are usually easier to ask directly and get direct answers, but many will try to guess at what a neurotypical person might *mean*, guess wrong and then react to that... I blame nonautistic people.
