One thing it isn't is different wiring in the brain. Don't know about anyone else, but there are no wires in my head

From "autism" I believe I discovered something I call "theoretical personality". It had had me puzzled for years. Why was I so slow and why so lazy? I got my first clue from a very old John Lennon interview where John stated he was physically very inactive. He said he'd get up late, pick up a book or a guitar or just think. I thought, "Wow, this is how I am!" I struggle to do physical jobs but I love to just read or think.
Here is the point: When you physically work, you still think but on a different level. It's more problem solving related. On the other hand, when you just read and think you put 99 per cent of your energy into it.
If you're autistic and don't socialise, you may use the time instead to dream and think inwardly or read. This is why NT psychologists assumed AS people gather lots of knowledge about, say, washing machines but are not thought to understand how they really work. In reality, no purely theoretical approach is as useful practically. It's a different perspective. Such a personality type is ideal for political analysis or history, music or art or philosophy. Less suited for actual building of things or projects. I tend to equate autism to selfism and inward perspective.

I think we only get good at what we do. Trying to start off anything different is always a challenge. It just often seems easier to do what is familiar. There needs to be some kind of incentive to action

"In Canadian research out last year, scientists suggested the scarcity of a single protein in the brain could be what’s to blame for up to a third of autism cases. The brain protein in question is called nSR100 – also known as SRRM4 – and it’s pivotal for normal brain development."

Trump has lit up the White House to mark National Autism Day. As I browse the articles, there is a conception autism is a disorder or illness. Again, we appear to be going round in circles, ignoring more rational interpretations.
First problem is autism is only referenced against some accepted standards of normality. What is normal? True, NT's are evolved to survive collectively, support each other, function in teams, share their varied skills to produce one result. Yet they themselves are incapable of solving the most basic, wider ranging problems such as famine, war, poverty, ecological issues. My point being little wonder so many of us develop autism traits because (as Jiddu Krishnamurti stated), we are asked to "adjust" to a sick society. I have a different perspective on mental illness (where behaviour deviates or someone becomes disfunctional). Yes, I accept I have these defects but only in reference to other people considered normal. From other reference points, I can outperform NT's (example, communication with dogs and animals). I accept I could use therapy in order to deal with the negative effects of autism but these symptoms all boil down to coping mechanisms, caused by some original stimulae. Not only are more people developing autism symptoms, far more are depressed and anxious.

We happen to be the fucking mutants from the X-Men Movie and even though we are smarter and stronger then everyone else people want to cure. With how Carlton Palms tried to break me, it think a lesser man would have forgotten himself. Autism fights all evil!

One of the main reasons I dislike this shirt is because it just singles the child out. Kids are cruel human beings that may not necessarily know the consequences of their actions. This shirt just puts a target on the kids back for some of the other kids to make fun of/ bully the child.

Another reason that I don't like this shirt is that it may cause an identity crisis for the child as they get older. If all they feel connected to their father and others around them is "the fight against autism", then they will eventually feel like they have no place where they belong and that everyone around them is just pitying them for having autism.

A third reason that I don't like this shirt is that it is making money off of ignorant families with a child or children with Autism. The shirt costs $10.99-24.99 USD, and at least 2 shirts per purchase is $20 plus dollars that goes to a stupid shirt rather than something the child/children could actually benefit from. That money could go towards one of the child's interests, a playdate with a friend, or an meal at their favorite place after something doesn't exactly go their way.
