I was subjected to teasing at prep school (8-13). I was once told by a group of boys I was the 'Missing link'.
At public school (13-18) I was subjected to a lot of verbal bullying.

Surprisingly, I was never targeted by bullies. I think it's mainly because people respect or fear me, maybe even both.

Other than maybe some expected teasing, no. I was quiet and invisible enough to fly under people's radar.

Yes, but it tended to be very subtle.

I guess I was never bullied. People just don't do that at my school.
I could've even been considered the bully, because if anyone said anything the least bit rude or if I didn't like someone, I cried and told the teacher or my parents. I was called a crybaby a lot, though.

in the days before Autism was understood or hardly known of. The incidences of being bullied by siblings and supported by parents whom did not know of autism . Was horrendous , Parents just wanted to toughen me up for the real world but the degree of these incidences . Were just too severe . Causing serious depression for most of my future life . Even self destructive tendencies.
Much crying and being isolated in a closet .But , i did get the concepts from them of Xmas and Thanksgiving.but they did keep those traditions,that gave me what little sense of normality , i had in this world . Which did not serve me at all in my older years
It was possibly worse than having no family at all .
When i became a penpal with a neice ,
Whom i tried to explain , what was my normal life . i found that my mother started intercepting my mail that was delivered to our :roll: home :roll: . SO soon after , it seemed to me that i had
quit getting return letters from her . During my first interaction with her in person at 5 yrs old
or earlier possibly . We had some indepth conversations for persons our age . Where i described what was happening in my family with me. And she said this did not happen to her in her home.
It was then , i started to realise there were differences .But i still had no idea that i had autism .
Eventually at 16 in order to move on , i had to mentally try to forgive them . In order to move on .
( with the help of a book "The Power of Positive Thinking")
With my life .But the vivid details of these things never completely left me. But i did move on .
And had some successful ventures in my life . And the help of a non participating but loving sometimes atagonistic , as a role model ,Father. At least i was fed regularily . And absolute minimal medical care .So given the drawbacks , i still think autists may have a advantage mentally . That may very well be unrecognized . Given just the right circumstances . (Most of my contemporaries could not balance a checkbook at thirteen ).

Yes, consistently through k-12.

I've faced bullying from both NT and ND students, I'm pretty certain I've also participated in bullying although I didn't always understand that's what I was doing at the time. I also experienced harassment and bullying from faculty and teachers.

I had one year in high school where I had a vice-principal who actually gave a s**t about my well-being, because she was the mother of a classmate from elementary school. She was replaced by a VP who preferred to enable some of the bullies (not so much the bullies who were also outcasts but when it came from more popular cliques). She stopped harassing me after I finally told her I wasn't going to tolerate being harassed by her or other students over how I dressed; that if she insisted on contributing to the problem I'd deal with her just like any other bully and that she didn't want to ever see me in her office again because this was the last time I was going to speak about the matter and walked out.

It's actually one of the moments that really taught me about how power dynamics work because the situation started off with me assuming she was following up on Ms. Penegal's work the previous year so I went along like it would friendly, when I realized what was going I became livid enough that submitting wasn't an option, but between the quick, single syllable raising of my voice, the quiet lean-in and matter-of-fact tone and the demonstration of control over how the interaction ended (I had the final word and left immediately without allowing an opportunity to respond) it immediately and permanently changed how those interactions went.
