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

For some weird reason I can't type anything else after I do this or on another list on here so this will be big. There is an autistic person at my school. He be like "HEY GUYS GUESS WHAT I DID? I DID (something I don't care about.) And I am in high school. If you seen my one about people treating me like I am autistic you know I have 2 autistic friends and they are cool. So, the other autistic people are so annoying. They worship super Mario or any Nintendo game. I like Madden NFL or any Xbox game. In Mario party characters cry when they are in 4th place and throw tantrums. Ok, back to this. If you don't like what they like they yell at you. Special Ed rooms look like a kindergarten room. And they like the wiggles. what. That show is stupid. How do they think it is funny. They are like 15 they need to grow up. I am 14 and they annoy me.

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.

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

8 All Autists are Introverts

I'm not saying there's anything wrong with being introverted. It's just that sometimes you gotta come out of your shell so that you can communicate better with other people cause it's much more better for society. - Aragorn98

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
