There is one thing that everybody on the spectrum should be able to say. That one thing is, "I'm autistic! What's your excuse?" I benefit from saying that, every time. There are a lot of people who don't understand why a person with autism stims, carries a comfort object around, or is clearly wearing a diaper under their trousers, at any age, which the last two ring true for me. Somebody at my Mental Health clubhouse was giving me flack for carrying my little Sid figurine around the clubhouse. (The character who's in my avatar). He asked me, "Aren't you a little old for that?" I gave him a cold glare, and I've shouted, "I'm autistic! What's your excuse?" He was on the verge of tears, when one of his macho guy friends asked him, how he was doing. The reason was because, he didn't expect me to be that blunt and forceful with him. This is the reason that I actually like having an autism label and being on the spectrum. I can say something like that to an ignorant person, and I still carry Sid around, with my Cockney Pride. :O)
