sheldon cooper laugh

if anyone is wondering about the damaging effects of the big bang theory please know that sheldon cooper is very much a realistic portrayal of autism and he constantly gets put in uncomfortable situations for humor’s sake and is literally abused by people who he considers to be his only friends

sheldon cooper has a spot on the couch that is his, and affinities for certain places like that is definitely an autism associated trait

and i have autism too, and like sheldon, i also have a spot on the couch that i consider to be mine because it’s more comfortable for me to be in and also helps with my various musculoskeletal issues

and i’m literally terrified to ask my own family - especially my brother - to move from it or keep it open because they’ll just accuse me of being like sheldon cooper and laugh in my fucking face

this is why tbbt is ableist bullshit, folks
