Well it depends on the size of the dog. My friend's catahoula? Sort of scary, that dog's got a lot of energy and a lot of strength. My little miniature Schnauzer? I love it when he jumps up on me because even though he's got a lot of energy he's small and pretty much harmless. The thing that bothers...

Never ever play Agar.io, web browser game. I have had intense rage while playing it, and yet you just keep playing. This was a bigger problem for me when I was little, because I would literally throw the controller to the ground. I'd even have an issue with Neopets games. Once I threw a nail polish ...

When the vacuum cleaner is too loud.

When you flap your hands whenever you experience an intense emotion.

When as a child, it was funner to press, open and close, and click things rather than actually play with toys as they were intended.

I love human contact, soooooo, no.

Hugs, cuddles, pats on the back, massages, all that.

Aborting your child or setting them up for adoption because they are Autistic is ableist and cruel. Remember that Autism is a spectrum. I have Asperger's and my family never had an issue raising me along with my neurotypical sister. I don't really know what causes Autism, I don't think anyone really...

I have really bad self-esteem, and 90% of the time think I'm ugly. But I find ways to make myself look pretty or cute in front of the webcam, and take pictures to archive these moments. Selfies improve my self-esteem, who are you to judge? (By the way my icon is not a selfie, it's actually a still f...

I can also tell the difference between bottled waters. I actually love water. I drink out of the tap at home, literally I just stick my face in the sink. But not all water. Irony water of course is the worst. I'm really picky with eating and drinking. I can honestly name the things that I drink excl...

You know you're an Aspie when you start stimming on a regular basis.

You know you're an Aspie when everyone seems to be hearing comfortably at a concert but you're having a panic attack with the amount of noise.

You know you're an Aspie when you find it impossible to look someone in the eye.

I know lots of people compulsively listen to songs over and over, but I've found myself for years re-listening to other things, like videos and audio files. I'll have a Youtube video playing in another tab just so I can listen to it. I'll do this for hours, multiple different videos for weeks. I'll ...

I wasn't diagnosed till my senior year of high school, so I had absolutely no assistance or guidance to help me integrate into the neurotypical world. Instead, the ways of the world were pounded into me. I never knew what was "strange" and what wasn't, so I was teased mercilessly throughout my child...

When I'm having a panic attack, I find it extremely difficult to speak. It takes incredible will-power to say anything. I dunno... there's just... something in my head... preventing me from saying anything. It's as though I will just feel 100% worse if I say anything. I begin to hate the sound of my...

I would just like to say thank you to everyone who voted and gave their input!

I have actually recorded all of the data and comments into a document called "Autistics Speak." I will likely carry on this poll to other sources to gather more data on the thoughts of the community.

When I was diagnosed (in my senior year of high school) hardly anyone actually believed me because I can pass so well. Also, when people meet me if I tell them they're like, "Oh. I never would have guessed." So yeah, often times I can fake it real well. But if I'm under lots of stress, the Aspie-nes...

The cure I'm looking for is for depression (different from sadness), persistent social anxiety (although I think a little social anxiety is actually healthy...), and lack of self-esteem. The autistic traits I happen to have may be related to those above problems, but they aren't the same, and they ...

I think being Aspie is perfect. It's not. That's like claiming having dyslexia is perfect and the global use of script is unnecessary and discriminatory. It makes sense for human beings to do social interaction. Most people have a brain that is good at this. We don't. So there's something wrong wit...
