PerfectImpulseX

The Top Ten

1 Julia - Sesame Street Julia - Sesame Street

The only character with autism. - StevenUniverseIsAwesome

Too bad she is the center of ableist jokes for older audiences.

2 Tsubomi Hanasaki / Cure Blossom - HeartCatch Precure Tsubomi Hanasaki / Cure Blossom - HeartCatch Precure

First off, doesn't anyone even know what autism is? Does anyone know an autistic person personally, or is even one? It's not the same as retardation. So I'm not sure if this list is really about autism, or they're trying to list a character that seems retarded to them.

Go look it up. It's a mental disorder that makes it hard to socialize with anyone. - PerfectImpulseX

Most of these characters aren't autistic, I think it's just the creator of this list trying to subtly insult them. I'm probably wrong, though. - Extractinator04

Actually, I can see why all of these people, except Jeffy, Rick and Papyrus are on here.

I don't think anyone besides julia from seasame street has austism
