Top 10 Most Annoying Autism Stereotypes

I'm autistic and I get so annoyed by these types of stereotypes! I'll tell you right now that not all autists are like this, including me. I just hope these stereotypes completely die so that no one believes autists are bad people or anything.

The Top Ten

1 All Autists are Violent

I'm autistic and I never think that violence is the answer. You can get locked up for inflicting pain upon another person ya know. - Aragorn98

2 All Autists are Immature

I'm very mature for my disorder. - Aragorn98

3 All Autists are Unintelligent

This is such a annoying stereotype. I'm not the smartest person in existence but I'm not a uneducated dumb person either. It's been proven that autistic people are far more intelligent than non autistic people look no further than Albert Einstein. - BoredJeff02

Albert Einstein and Issac Newton would like to argue (If it is true). - CrimsonShark

I'm not the smartest person but I wouldn't say I'm dumb or anything. I'm really good with history, math and science. - Aragorn98

I've never known an unintelligent autistic person, well, outside of myself. - Extractinator04

10 All Autists are Nonverbal

Autists can be very shy, but not all of them.
I often get criticized because I talk too much.
(I often continue talking, even when the other person in the conversation lost his/hers interest).
I can be shy at times, but whenever I talk, I go on for too long.
This is also the reason behind my - sometimes - long comments. - Kiyomi
