We've called autism a disease for decades. We were wrong.
Most people think of autism as a disease, a major impediment of which an increasing number of children are "victims." But over the past two decades, a growing number of adults on the autism spectrum, myself included, have rejected this frame and called for non-autistic "neurotypicals" to respect and accommodate "neurodiversity." We believe that autism is a natural and in many ways desirable variation in how people think, not a great evil to be stamped out.
I sometimes wonder if I have it? You can have, I won't say what's my mental illnesses because society is against it, so I don't know, I just stay home and keep quiet to myself and even my dad and mom and my family don't care all that much because they're ignorant, well my extended family and of course those don't understand mental illness.
