Yes, my girlfriend has autism. Yes, she is a great person. Those two things DO NOT contradict each other. She is a person like you, with feelings and thoughts, and when you have the audacity to call things ‘retarded’, I’m sorry but of course I’m going to get mad. Of course she’s gonna correct you.
You can quit treating her like glass and more like a person. She has feelings, trust me, she’s just not good at showing them and there’s nothing wrong with that.
Quit telling her to look you in the eyes, she can’t do that. She wont do that, she’s not comfortable with it, leave her alone.
She’s not being ‘rude’, she’s being herself. She doesn’t do small talk. If you have a problem with her being open about her special interests, then you can leave my life.
“She doesn’t look autistic,” you say? Well you didn’t look stupid, but I guess we were both wrong.
My girlfriend is beautiful, strong, and inspiring. Don’t EVER tell me otherwise.
