Top Ten Things Autistic People Are Tired of Hearing

Pony

The Top Ten

1 "Why don't you get friends?"

Why don't the people who say this get a life, a brain AND some real friends? - 906389

I got friends with and without it

2 "You're faking it for attention"

This is the worst thing you could say to someone that has autism. Why would someone want to draw attention with that excuse? It's horrible, I think nobody would want to do something like that.

How could someone even say this? Why would you fake something like this? The really sad thing is that I can see the popular people at my school saying this to someone with autism. - Minecraftcrazy530

Yes, my years having no friends, developmental delays, sensory pain, struggles to stick to a daily routine, etc. are all a performance JUST FOR YOU. You're THAT SPECIAL. (/sarcasm) And autism has neutral and good parts too, but clearly you don't care, because you're only interested in putting me down. If you are going to be like that, then please give me 0 more seconds of your attention. Yes, I mean leaving. I strongly dislike your attention. Please have a nice day, somewhere else.

It does happen, but rarely. - Therandom

3 "Stop covering your ears!"

It is annoying. When I'm in the cafeteria at school, I can barely hear my friends because people are yelling across the room, and they start having a casual yelling conversation, even though they are told not to. - CinderpeltandCinderheart

"If you want me to suffer, then I can go ahead and stop covering my ears! " Since our ears are more sensitive, loud noises can be painful to us. This is why I wear headphones so much.

I cover my ears when loud music starts. - DynastiSugarPop

I cover my ears when the teacher writes on the blackboard with chalk ( to me it sounds.like a fork scraping on a plate which also makes me cover my ears) - Ihateschool

4 "Autism is a disease that needs to be cured"

Definitely sick of hearing this especially with annoying Autism programs like Autism Speaks that make it seem like it's a disease or virus. It's not that, it's just a birth defect and hearing this garbage makes me cringe. - BoredJeff02

It basically is saying we shouldn't exist and that hurts. Imagine being told your very existence needs to be cured. Hurts, doesn't it? - LydiaLuna

Some people have special help for it, but it isn't a disease. Our lives aren't limited!

I actually wish there was a cure for autism. I am autistic, but I wish I was not. - anonygirl

5 "Bronies are the highest form of Autism"

Although I'm not a MLP fan myself, I think that just because they like the show doesn't mean that they have autism, and people should respect other's opinions. - MarioMikuFan380

And these quotes are the most severe form of You-Need-To-Get-A-Life Syndrome!

Also, I don't mean autistic people are stupid, sorry if it came across as that to you. - CinderpeltandCinderheart

I'm under the spectrum, and I HATE MLP. I wish I could torture Rarity. And what if the person with autism has never heard of MLP. Saying autistic people, I hate to say this word, are retarded even though they are stupid because what if there's a baby on the spectrum? A newborn? You think THEY'RE a MLP fan, huh? - CinderpeltandCinderheart

6 "You should really talk more"

I do talk a decent amount, but people always tell me to speak up. - Turkeyasylum

7 "Vaccines cause Autism"

I don't have autism, but man does this one annoy me. - keycha1n

Oh my.. I really hate this stupid "theory." - MarioMikuFan380

That's probably an urban legend

8 "You are retarded"

God, I get this a lot, I have high functioning autism and hate it when people say this to me.. "there are two retarded kids in our class" no we are autistic..

That's just mean-spirited... People should stop saying the r word. - MarioMikuFan380

The last time some idiot told me I was retarded, almost didn't graduate, and I graduated with high honors.

Autistic people are actually smarter than the average person. Do your research before you say that, folks ;) also, be careful who you say that to, some autistic ones like me are very aggressive, and will hurt you. - CinderpeltandCinderheart

9 "Are you retarded?"
10 "Loner."

The Contenders

11 "Baby Brain!"
12 "You're such a baby"

One time, My classmate, who has autism, throw a tantrum while I was trying to forcing him to watch my anime clip, Trigun, through my phone and called him a baby.

I know right some autistic people get butthurt over small jokes and I don't really like it since I tell a lot of jokes though most aren't really pffence. Anyway they're pretty cool once you understand them - AlphaQ

No, but he won't look at my anime video. how do I get him to pay attention to my video clip through my phone?

13 "You're stupid"

When somebody who is failing all their classes, and does extremely stupid things (yolo things) calls somebody with Autism who is towards the top of all their classes, and doesn't do stupid things, just lacks social skills an idiot, that is just extremely hypocritical. Many autistic individuals are intelligent, just lacking communication skills.

Eat my middle finger... Wait, that sounds a bit wrong. Forget it! - JaysTop10List

14 "Drink bleach and cut your wrists, bitch."
15 "You are going to have it for the rest of your life"

I know that, yes.Does it bother me? No!

That is true. - CinderpeltandCinderheart

16 "Why can't you take a joke for once?"

This one annoys me, some jokes aren't meant to be taken seriously. I do know that not all people with autism can't take a joke, but a lot can't. Ex: Danteem. - Therandom

I've got austisim and some jokes I just don't find that funny

17 "Steven Universe fangirls are autistic like you. You have no brain and lack intelligence!"

Can't you let people like what they like? I like Steven Universe, mostly because of the gem thing, and I collect crystals. That's why I'm intrigued by it, as it is an original idea. - CinderpeltandCinderheart

At least Steven universe is better than teen titans go

I don't have autism, but my brother does. And I love Steven Universe, while he hates it. - Stevenuniversefangirl

I am an autistic girl who loves watching Steven Universe, but that doesn't mean that I have no brain or lack of intelligence like idiots who say these kind of stupid things out of spite hate. At times I'll admit that I'm wrong, instead of acting like I know what I'm talking about.

Steven Universe is a very creative show that shows important life lessons, and I learn so much from them. Like self acceptance, parent issues, kid issues, finding out who you really are, and it shows us that there are different kinds of relationships from stable to unstable. Steven himself shows that he's comfortable with his masculinity by showing that he's not afraid of having empathy for others, and that he looks up to women for strength as well. ( Even though they're gender-less space alien rocks who go by the pronouns of she and her).

Now if an autistic girl like me can notice these things, then I'm surprised that the people who called us idiots and hates the show didn't even notice those ...more

20 "Repent to the lord and ask him to take that evil autistic spirit out of you"

No, you repent! God made me an aspie on purpose. It is a trade off of social and motor skills for intellectual and creative skills. I have a purpose for society, whether big or small! So, you should repent for your rejection of neurodiversity, and ask that the evil spirit of discrimination be taken out of you!
