This is the funniest video I’ve seen all week.

On the one hand: I worry that making Rick canonically autistic may reinforce negative stereotypes about autistic people. Some autistic fans have expressed discomfort with this, as Rick is awful and self-destructive, and clearly not  a role model to look up to, and I worry that people will link those shitty behaviors to his autism. 

On the other hand: fuck those dudebros who have been shooting down and mocking autistic fans that wanted this. The show can still show Rick growing as a person, and as fans have such little rep already, I’m glad that R&M has given us a complex character who’s canonically mentally ill, pansexual, and autistic, and I hope all those dudebros who told us fans who wanted any of that to be canon are seething in their seats.
