I’m no expert but this seems like an incredibly inaccurate representation of autism
@Natural Sarcasm , got an autistic brother and I can concur
@megamanx181x, so correct me if I’m wrong. Don’t most autistic people just struggle with social interactions but their logical intelligence isn’t really affected? (I genuinely don’t really know much about autism)
@Natural Sarcasm , it depends where on the spectrum they are. I used to work with special needs kids. One child barely showed symptoms and was a very eloquent speaker, writer, and brilliant mathematician. Another child, also very intelligent and excellent with numbers, was much farther down the spectrum and therefore couldn't speak. He could make sounds and would hit (not meaning to hurt) to try to communicate. 3 years of work with him (not alone by any means, the whole staff was great and cared so much) and he was able to form sentences. I had been transferred to the older group of kids before his breakthrough with communication, but when he was transferred to my group again, not only could he speak, but he remembered my name! A name he learned when he couldn't speak. It showed how much he was absorbing and learning, even when he didn't know how to communicate it. To be honest, I started to tear up. I was so proud of him. It was absolutely amazing. They are absolutely amazing.
@Natural Sarcasm , that being said, I have 2 really close friends who are on the spectrum. You'd never know because they're both so social, but get over stimulated easily sometimes. They also don't always pick up on subtle interactions or sarcasm. The Autism Spectrum is so broad. It's so interesting!
@Natural Sarcasm , it varies a lot, no autistic person has the same characteristics and it’s rated in severity. There are those who’s are mild that can communicate but struggle socially and learning, there’s moderate like me brother who understand verbal communication but can’t speak himself and can’t take care of himself, then there are severe that require 24 hour supervision and are unable to take care of themselves.
@TheMiscreant4, thank you, that actually helps a lot and I think I’m getting a better understanding of things. Also people like you are saints. Tbh I’d love to say I have the patience to work with people the way you do but I’m simply not capable (quick to frustration). Thank god there are people like you who can take on this task and have your heart in it
@Natural Sarcasm , oh my goodness, thank you so much. I really appreciate how kind you are, your response honestly just made my day. Your openness to learning and willingness to ask questions are qualities I certainly admire. You seem rather noble, my friend. Thank you again, from the bottom of my heart
@megamanx181x, I am autistic... I also concur.
It's funny how their lines change depending on which team, because when a Genji pops on your team, he says it in English (the dragon becomes me), but on the enemy team, he says it in Japanese. But Mercy says (or would say, haven't played in a min), Heroes never die when she popped ult but on the enemy team, she'd say it in Swiss (German? I forget). And Zarya does the same too, English for her team, Russian for the enemy. To clarify, I mean specifically how they switch between languages, not like how 76 does "tactical visor activated" vs "I've got you in my sights" or McMeme "step right up" vs "it's high noon"
He mastered the technique
