Autistics Is Different

Over on YouTube, I found this here video done by some Aspie what got diagnosed a few months back and already he’s an expert on the subject.  Anyway, he done this video about the five things NTs needs to know about people with autism and I has to say that some of them points is good and some of them isn’t.

Over the next five days, I’m going to take a look at one of them five points he made in his video so you can understand what he got right and what he didn’t.  Autism isn’t easy to understand but this bloke got things mixed up and that’s going to cause troubles for us autistics with NTs what doesn’t get it about autism.

The first thing he says is that we is different.  Says we thinks and behaves different from most other people.

Here’s the thing.  People is called individuals for a reason and that reason is because we all acts different from each other.  What we thinks is different.  What we behaves like is different.

If you is raised poor like me, you isn’t going to think and behave like if you is raised like Prince Charles were, is you?  Even if you put on airs, you still isn’t going to be like Prince Charles.  If you doesn’t put on airs, you isn’t going to be like others what been raised like you either.

And what about other cultures?  Jackie Chan don’t act nothing like Kim Kardashian even if they does both live in America.  Piers Morgan and Philip Schofield is both presenters but they doesn’t act or behave the same neither even if they is both on the telly and they wear suits.

This is why we needs people like Rion McNeally out there talking to people.  He doesn’t say stupid things like that.  He says we is all different but some of us is different in the same way that NTs isn’t.

Enough Blame To Go Around

I were on Facebook the other day and there were this autism group what was discussing a problem at one of them All-In playgrounds for special needs children what includes autistics.  A mum said her and her son was shamed because her son pushed another child down a slide.

Now I weren’t there (seeing as it all happened in America and not over here) so I doesn’t know anything more than what people is saying but seems to me there’s enough blame to go around.

First of all, it’s one of them All-In playgrounds for special needs children so that means all them children might have special needs, and it’s a safe bet that most of them does.  That means that the autistic boy what pushed the other child down the slide is special needs, and probably that child what got pushed down the slide is special needs.

We all knows why the autistic boy was there so I has to chalk up the other parents’ reaction to shock and all.  Of course, maybe it weren’t shock and when the parents asked why he were there, maybe they meant why were he there with his mum not closer than she were.

She says her son were on the slide and rolling around.  That’s not safe.  If the boy fell off the slide from all that rolling around, he might’ve broke his neck in the fall.  Anyway, his feet hit the other child and she went down the slide.  It don’t matter if the little girl were badly hurt on her body because if she were special needs maybe she were badly hurt emotionally.

Some kids takes a while to internalize what happens to them and then they’re terrified to do anything again because of that.  The mum of the autistic boy got no right to say the other child weren’t hurt.  Maybe she were and the mum of the autistic boy don’t know it.

The mum of the autistic boy said the girl weren’t crying.  If she knows anything about autism, she knows that some autistics is hyposensitive and that means they doesn’t cry right away even when they is badly hurt.  They is internalizing what they is feeling, if anything, before reacting.

So maybe Cooper’s mum should stick closer to Cooper when he is out in public so them sort of things doesn’t happen again.  It’d be safer for Cooper and safer for them what’s close to Cooper.


Learning To Be Stupid

Autistics isn’t afraid of failure.  We gets told all the time by NTs how we doesn’t measure up to what NTs thinks we should be doing with our lives.  We doesn’t crumple up and stop trying.  We keep on being autistic as best we can.

Anyway, I read this here blog one of my mates in America sent to me.  It were on the New York Times site and it were about parents and teachers, and how they teach their children to be stupid.  It weren’t just about autistics but I’m guessing that most was thinking it were about autistics.

The blog said parents and teachers teaches autistics they can’t do nothing right by letting them not do chores and doing their homework for them.  I doesn’t know of any parents of autistic children not having them do at least some chores.  Most of them makes autistics put away their video games when they is done playing and things like that.

They says parents and teachers is learning autistics that they is stupid and can’t do things on their own.  I say that’s ridiculous. Some of the best hackers in the world today is autistic, and they was hacking back when they was children living at home so I doesn’t see how that blog is right.

And nobody helped them autistics learn how to hack when they was growing up.  Hacking weren’t something their parents was doing!

That’s why we has to get Rion McNeally back into the real world.  If he were advocating for autistics, these nonsense blogs wouldn’t get away with their fairy tales, would they now?
