You can't measure cuteness

I don't find any children cute

Autistic children might be socially awkward in a way that is "cute". To an observer

I think they're cute because they don't talk much. I personally can't stand NT kids who jabber all the time. You can just see their brains falling out. Whatever they think about they have to tell somebody. I don't want to hear every stupid thought they have. That's why babies and toddlers are cute, and boys are cuter than girls. Well to me anyway. Thank goodness for video games and smart devices that keep people occupied!

No because children are not cute. I prefer baby animals.

My mom could always say you could tell I was autistic from my school pictures. Because I had a fake smile and this "look" in my eyes. Well if she had been there during picture day and the prodding all the picture taking people did, she'd be surprised I was even able to muster out a fake smile. My brother was in the military and I always noticed he NEVER smiled in his pictures. I also saw pictures of people from old timey days and they didn't smile much either. So it was possible to not smile in a picture. My mom's FAVORITE school pictures of me are ones where I am not smiling. The pictures where I have a legit smile are ones of me when I'm not in school and am holding or petting an exotic animal of some kind.

I notice that a lot of people with autism look much younger than their actual age. Part of it is psychological. I worked with a girl who I thought was a teenager (because she was kinda air-headed, and didn't hear what I was saying when I'd say something to her. Does that sound familiar?) and when I asked her her age (which is rude, I know, but whatever) she told me she was in her thirties. I was the one who was dumbfounded. I bet I come off just the same way as she does, all airy and la-di-da, but I don't care. People think I'm stupid, and I just smile inside because I know every detail of every little thing ever to exist in humanity! (Okay, I know nothing, but I know a lot more than I let on.)

I think they are. I think it's the Sweet Pea inside them that makes them cute.

All children are cute.

In photos I always looked hyperactive.

I get that a lot too. I was at a restaurant for my 32nd birthday and my mother told the waitress it was my birthday. She asked me how old I was and was shocked when I said 32. She said she thought I was 18.

LOL, same with adults, NTs or not! I know a few people who just can't shut up for half a minute and have no filter between their brain and their mouth. I'd rather shot myself in the arse. Twice.

Or as I have said before: When some people open their mouth, you can almost see their brain cells fleeing in panic!

Yeah, one of the reasons I'm no fan of neither kids nor extroverts.

They are very exhausting.

I was an absurdly ugly baby.
I looked like a skinny balding old man.
