No, It’s Not Because of Autism

This is a fair warning to everybody: before you proceed to dismiss me or to bully me on the basis that I’m autistic, be prepared to be insulted and bullied right back. I’m sick and tired of stupid ignoramuses whose intellectual impotence makes them lose every single argument in the most pathetic way and makes them seek excuses in other people’s identity.

Want to be a bigot and a fool? Go be that someplace else. I have no intention of offering space on my popular blog to the hateful rants of autism-bashers.

Seriously, how incredibly stupid does one have to be to start informing autistics about what they are or aren’t while having absolutely no relevant medical degree and no understanding whatsoever of autism? How can anybody be so delusional that they think they will inform me of something pertaining to my way of being that I don’t know and they do?

I’m very angry right now. Do you also walk around telling people, “You don’t understand this because you are a woman / Hispanic / gay / diabetic / blonde / a senior citizen”?

And it isn’t just one person who’s doing this either. There have been at least five cases of this recently on my blog.

Shame on you, haters. Shame on you.

  1. What? I find myself relating very closely to the way you react to some situations, and since this is emphatically not the way most people react to them, and more importantly because you frequently mention your autism, it leads me to wonder if I might be autistic myself. Where in this does the weird “hater” terminology come in?

    Sorry, love. Not biting the shame-pie on this one.


  2. Clarissa,
    Maybe it works somehow like that?:
    Some of the participants, who either just choose their words somewhat better, or whom you know long enough to be sure of their good intentions and good attitude towards autism, occasionally allow themselves something like “Clarissa, autism made you more immune to slut-shaming-related cultural pressures” and everything seems to be fine. (But I apologize if in fact I am misjudging what is going on and it was that very instance which upset you.)
    And other participants observe it and interpret it in a way that arguments involving your autism are in general allowed in discussions on your blog? Would you prefer references to your autism not made by anybody? Just in case?


  3. I, too, apologize if any of my comments have been hurtful. I find your perspective interesting and enlightening because it is quite different from mine, and I find the differences worth exploring (though occasionally frustrating, but that’s my problem, not yours). But I absolutely do not intend to cause pain when I acknowledge difference, and so if I have, I am sorry.


  4. You may not care, but I am sorry to hear that. I can be rude at times, but I would never go there.

    People give their opinions on depressive people but a lot of them have no idea what they are talking about. Most people probably never heard the word dysthymia (what I have), they just see that I complain a lot and that I am never happy. Most people wants to live in Walt disney while it’s hell inside my head.

    Talking about my disease would not help. I would just get some stupid comments about it.

    People who knows I am sick blame me anyway. So I try not to bring that up.
