This criticism is really completely invalidated by the fact the the character is the one that Dan Harmon connects to most, and seeing as he is Abed’s creator and also has aspergers, I would think that he would know how to represent himself.
But this is a subject that really frustrates me a lot on tumblr because I take it pretty personally. almost all of the people I see comment on things relating to the autism spectrum really don’t know anything about it, or only have experience with people who are extremely high functioning. My brother is on the low end of that spectrum. My father and grandfather are/were on the high end, as am I. Autism is [typically] supposed to skip a generation, yet in my family it managed to affect three at various degrees of severity.
