    Shame that autism has devolved to an online insult.

  4. Gabriel N. says:

    I personally agree with you, science has proven how vaccines are not responsible for the cause of autism. Science can guarantee that fact, however I can also guarantee there will be individual’s in the comment section who will disagree with you. They will try to advocate about how there is a correlation between the two. However, in the end their minds, like their theory, will always be theoretical.

    3:07 I wish there were more people who say this. I suffer from Aspergers and I am socially isolated, hated, have close to no friends and almost non existent chances on ever getting a girlfriend. I am basically destined to fail.

    I have autism and you aren’t accepted when you have it, I’m smart enough te become a pilot my dream job, but I can’t because i have autism, some times they treat me like I have a down syndrome, but a lot of ppl I know doesn’t even know I have autism because i don’t tell them and they can’t see on the outside if you have it or not, I don’t like to tell ppl that I have it because the are gonna treat you different or they just vanish and they never want to speak with you again…. if you read this command please, we aren’t that different from you…. please accepted us how we are, and don’t treat us different.

    I used to work with autistic kids at my school and a lot of people thought they were stupid but the truth is they were extremely smart and some could do better math than I could despite being 3+ years younger.

    You should make videos about different types of surgury. You can talk about the process of brain surgury or if weight loss surgury helps fat people. Surgury might be a scary topic, but it sounds interesting.

    My cousins autistic and holy crap that kid is smart he has a great memory and loves random facts, I love random facts but this kid will tell me random facts he learned 3 years ago, some maybe not true that I will correct him on, but he is very smart and when he wants to remember things he will. But the social thing is very true he’s very awkward walks around on his toes and always looks like he has to pee, and when he sees me he gets really excited and runs up to me grabs my shoulders and jumps around, but he’s been learning what’s acceptable and what’s not. But really he’s. a great kid and he dreams of being a scientist (that doesn’t involve math XD) thanks for reading this very long comment I just wanted to share my thoughts.

    i just got diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome 1 month ago, and im 13. i have been non-stop bullied for 8 years and i had no idea why EVERYONE chose me over the 400 other people in the school. and now that they know i have it, they bully me even more than before since they know i am easy to harm. which makes me a bit suicidal. 🙁
