Text 2 Apr 43 notes opinion on autism day

deaf-autie:

fipindustries:

as far as i understand it, someone with autism is like a computer without operative sistem, is not that they are useless or empty, is just that they doesnt have the ability of interaction with other people

and if i am wrong please correct me that i want to learn more about the subject

Actually, it’s more like y’all are Windows and we’re *nix. That’s about it.

Yes. Autistic people don’t lack anything, we just experience the world in a different way. We can, and do communicate, we just do it in different ways. And often we are able to communicate with other autistic people. That’s what deaf-autie means about Windows and *nix. We can communicate with each other, better than we can communicate with non-autistic people… but, that’s true of you too. Remember communication is not one-way! Non-autistic people expect us to learn your language, but, you could also try to learn ours!

You won’t say a deaf person or a blind person is like a computer without an operating system, so, why do people think someone who is not able to speak, is automatically less?

Autism is a different way that the brain works. Not less. Just different. That’s all.
