Autistic 1 liners

Autistic children rock!
Normal is a setting on a washing machine.
Today's autistic children, tomorrows geniuses.
If your autistic, flap your hands.
I think spinning should be a sport.
Eye contact is over rated.
To stim or not to stim, that is the question.
Its ok, i think you are weird to.
This is a cat. It is very happy being a cat. It is not a defective dog.
Autism isn't contagious but ignorance is.

From Cafe Press
Anyone know any more?

Can't think of any at the moment - but maybe one will pop into my brain at some point today. They are all funny - but food for thought as well.

Ignorance.........the worst thing there is, coupled with judgmentalism.

Why have I never read your blog before. It's fantastic. You know my daughter is autistic and I never realised I could have been reading this.

There is far too much ignorance where autism is concerned. We experience it every day.

I am also epileptic. I was very interested to read of your interests on your profile.

Best wishes, Crystal xx

Ohh and don't forget "I'm not weird, you are" ;-)
I'm new to your blog, but I must say it has a wonderful energy to it.
Hope your day is a peaceful one.


I love Autism Rocks best.

When I read your blogs it is great because you speak about your son and his Autism and we get a glimmer of how you feel about it and what it is from a real life. The problem is that people are so different and where you have a sense of humour others don't( and I am not being critical of those that don't but they handle things differently because of that). Also like you say today's generation will know far more about these syndroms and the behaviour that goes with them so can gain understanding. However the flip side is they are told that it is fine to abort a baby that doesn't come up to the expected 'norm'. Basically it is all a mess we are force fed mixed messages and political correctness so no wonder we live in fear of saying the wrong thing and the mass media ignores it all together unless they make the film. How can people not be ignorant if they are not getting the right education? Mind you your blog is definitely a good starting point.

My friend who has a son with Asperger's always reminds me of the time he said to her "Mum, it's weird that everyone's different to me, and I'm normal". Fair enough perspective, I'd say.


You hit it on the nail there is nothing blissful about ignorance, ignorance is dangerous.

It's become fashionable to use ASC (Autistic Spectrum Condition) not ASD now. (Autistic Spectrum Disorder) What are your feelings on the change? Do you think is is positive or just confusing political correctness?
Loved the blog bye the way.

Autism is a way of being. It is pervasive; it colors every experience, every sensation, perception, thought, emotion, and encounter, every aspect of existence.

Casdok said...

To answer Lampworkbeader, im not really keen on any labels (as covered in Label post) And am not keen on words with 'dis' in them, but 'condition' dosnt sound very nice either!

At T-Shirt Hell, a site that specifies in making offensive t-shirts. They had one, where it said Autism Rocks! and it had a image of an Autistic child rocking back and forth on it.

I thought it was strange, because the site does aim to sell offensive shirts, but I actually thought it was kind of clever and non-offensive. They might bring the shirt back in December. I really warn you though, if you go to look for it on the site, it's best just to search Autism Rocks. Since alot of the other shirts are pretty offensive.
