I think I’ve finally worked out a large part of the reason why Neurodiversity is such a big thing for me. 

There’s something very stifling about knowing that 99% of the population’s idea of who you are and what your life is like bears little to know resemblance to, well, who you are or what your life is like. 

Things like hearing people ask damning questions about whether or not people like you are capable of love or empathy or self-awareness, without ever actually asking anyone like you for confirmation.

Knowing, wherever you are, that there’s a good chance that many people in the immediate area believe that autistic people can’t/don’t do whatever you’re currently doing. 

Seeing people claim that certain fiction books give a ‘good insight into the mind of someone with autism/Aspergers’, when these books in fact contained 2D, exaggerated stereotypes of people like you, written by poorly-informed non-autistic people. Being completely unable to find a book containing a realistic portrayal of someone like you, because that wouldn’t sell. 

It makes you feel completely erased from the world. Like everyone else has this mental picture of what a Person With Aspergers is, and if you don’t fit that (which virtually nobody does), then tough. You’re an oxymoron, or a fake, or a curiosity, and there’s no place for you.

Better to be at the bottom of a ladder you want to climb than in the middle of some ladder you don’t, right?

Being internet smart is like the 21st century version of being street smart. 

Okay Dad, these are the websites you use to watch your show. 

Sockshare, Putlocker, gorillavid, nosvideo and novamov are your friends, stick to them and you know you’re okay.

DO NOT click on anything that wants you to download updates or DivX. 

DO NOT click on adverts on the side. 

And be very cautious of fake play buttons. 

You are ready. Go forth and watch Dexter.

‘Well, he’ll just have to wait until Private Igor’s finished looking for your brain, won’t he?’ snapped the sergeant.
