Autism is a disorder which is when one's brain is formed differently, making it difficult to understand social cues. People with Autism usually are born with weak fine motor skills and bad social skills, making it hard for them to socialize with others.

It is NOT an insult used to call people idiots.
The person writing this has Autism. I hope that people do research before using Autism as an insult, as it should not be used that way and can be quite offensive to those with Autism!

A nurological disorder where people develop social skills at a unusually slow pace. Autism is not a disease, and it has a extreamly large range of symptoms and severity. Every case is different. Do not criticize or insult autism people because of their autism; first, it’s just plain mean, second, it will not help their social development speed, finally, its part of their identity, respect it.

I am a autistic teenager, I posted this so people would stop calling me and my friends disabled autistics. It’s not okay. I am proud of my identity, including my autism, people should understand that me, along with most other autistic people I know, that all parts of identity should be respected, even autism.
Autistic person -“I have autism spectrum disorder.”
Friend- “no you don’t! You act a lot like everyone else, well, except when you inturupt a lot and get frustrated easily.”
Autistic kid- “yeah I do. I was diagnosed in kindergarten. There are lots of different symptoms to it, and those you just mentioned are mine.”
Friend- “well, I guess everybody’s working on something.”

Autism is a neurodevelopmental disorder. It's characterized by impaired social interaction, verbal and non-verbal communication, and restricted and repetitive behaviour.

If you use it as an insult, I will hunt you down and murder you (no, not literally).
Aaron scoffed. "Look at her, she clearly has autism." Hannah slapped him in the face.

"Autism isn't an insult." Quinn protested.

A condition that's highly misrepresented by organizations and trolls alike. They claim that autism is a disease that needs to be cured when in reality people with autism have had many positive effects on our society. For example, Albert Einstein, Isaac Newton, and even Nikola Tesla were all autistic. If you want to actually know about autism and how we think go to the Autistic Self Advocacy Network. This site will give you all of the factual information you need about how we express ourselves and provide opportunities to help out in ways that are actually meaningful to the autistic community.
I'm autistic, which is why I am writing this, and I urge you to please be careful what you search up on the internet about autism because not all of it is true. The reason why you can trust the source I provided is because it is supervised by autistic people themselves who actually know what it's like to live with autism.

A mental condition that makes communication verbal or nonverbal much more difficult. It is also known as Autism Spectrum Disorder

If you like to make school shooter memes about autistic people, stop. It's like making fun of someone for breathing oxygen.

Autism is not a joke. If someone has autism, they aren't automatically a fucking psychopath.

I have an autistic friend, and she is one of the most funniest people I have ever met.

There are ways to treat Autism such as therapies, specialists and medications, but it is not curable.

You shouldn't try to bully an autist. It isn't funny. It will just make you look despicable.
"I have autism, so I have trouble communicating with others. Please respect that."
