If I had a nickel for every person on the internet who didn't understand what autism is, I could buy the internet.

Apparently it's not common knowledge exactly what autism is, because what I thought it was was WAY off of what I learned in Psychology 101 last semester.

What most people know is that autistic people cut themselves off from reality. They usually pick one thing to obsess over so that they can tune out the rest of the world. But the reason why they cut themselves off is because they are hyper sensitive. Imagine the light in the morning being like a spotlight shining directly in your eyes.

They don't retreat because they are retarded, they're perfectly mentally sound people. But they are so sensitive to light, touch, sound, even emotion, that the world is extremely overwhelming to them. That's why they shut themselves off and mumble and are touchy, because the world is larger and scarier than it is for us.

there are probably 100 different kinds of grades of autism, and what you're describing right now doesn't fit in any of them

That's not what autism is. People like that are pretty stupid, but they're not autistic.
