Good fucking god.

Autistic people can do this.

Think of Temple Grandin and believe it or not, the creator of POKEMON, Satoshi Tajiri. They both have autism and they went places.

So guys, actually think for a minute. People who sometimes show no signs can be autistic. *cough cough* Me *cough cough*

Most people can't even notice.

The autism stigma (and other forms of ableism for that matter) needs to end. Autistic people and other disabled people are just as capable of going places as neurotypical and able-bodied people.

Autistic people can also be in relationships too, including with non-autistic people. They can also have children who aren't autistic.

I recently found out that Gary Numan is autistic. He has a wife and three daughters. His wife is neurotypical and so are his daughters.

I'm autistic and when I told my friends they were pretty shocked since I talk online more than I talk in real life.

then people in my school legit thought i was mute for around 1 month straight.

Don't forget they can also have relationships, get married, and have kids.

Do you mean people like Daniel Bull, Chuggaconroy, and Piper Sweeney?
I've heard that goth YouTuber Of Herbs and Altars is autistic as well.

I'm gonna be an autistic YouTuber as well.

Like stephen wiltshire, the guy in britain that can look at a scene, and draw it perfectly hours after seeing it. Its pretty cool.

There are many great people in history thought to have been on the autism spectrum, such as Thomas Jeffeson, Einstein, Mozart, etc.

Most of the time, that is true. There are some people with autism that are actually mute, but I'm talking about people like me who have Asperger's or similar conditions.
I'm actually pretty smart, I can make friends sometimes, and I can talk, if I need to.

Exactly!

people who think autistic people are dumb and have no furture have probably never met every autistic person! There's a reason it's called "an autistic spectrum", there's more than one type of autisim!
