Allistics always say things like “NONVERBAL COMMUNICATION IS IMPORTANT!” when talking about eye contact, body language, etc and they’ll get mad at Autistics for struggling with that kind of thing. But when a nonverbal Autistic communicates through sign language, texting, or writing, suddenly that’s inappropriate and they have to learn to talk. Or when an Autistic (verbal or nonverbal) communicates nonverbally through stimming or something similar, then suddenly that’s also inappropriate and needs to be stopped.
Don’t tell us to learn nonverbal communication when, in fact, most of the time we already know it - it’s just a different brand than yours. Learn our ways of communication. Don’t try to make us communicate in YOUR inaccessible way and don’t treat us like we’re broken or subhuman for not understanding.
