you know what? autistic people are amazing!!
like… we’re so observant and good at noticing patterns and we catch stuff other people miss and we see the world in such a different way that it gives us a great perspective on things that neurotypicals dont have
and we care so much about stuff and we get really passionate about it and its really cute and we have things in the world that are Good and so much can be conveyed in that word and we survive and adapt so well in a world not designed for us and i think that’s awesome?
and we stim when we’re happy bc its how we interact with the world that despite everything we can still see so much wonder in
like we’re really cool
and its important to remember that when the majority of the world at best doesnt understand and at worst outright hates us
especially when most autism positivity posts are “its okay if u cant do things neurotypicals can do” and “autistic people can be intelligent!” because yes those posts are important but also autistic people can be better than neurotypicals bc we’re a diverse and intelligent and beautiful group of people and i refuse to be held to a neurotypical standard of brilliance when we’re doing pretty great by ourselves
*Edit - its perfectly okay for neurotypicals/allistics to reblog this!
