Any other teenagers on the spectrum here who feels that they have a rockstar/rebel mentality? I only ask because I'm a 14 year old aspie male with long hair, I wear leather jackets, listen to rock music and generally rebel.

I know, but the question was about autism. Also there is disappointingly little rebellion in my generation.

oh, OK. Since I have had autism all my life, I suppose I just thought that my comments were appropriate.

I rebelled as a teen because I was embarrassed by my family. I didn't want to be "anything" like them at all. EEW!!

hah, really?

As for me, I am not so much rebellious as I am a passive-aggressive trouble maker merely concerned about furthering my own agenda. Any revolutions that might occur in the process are purely coincidental....

I think I need a haircut, cuz my ponytail tickles the base of my spine when I'm on the treadmill. I like my leather jacket, but it covers my tattoo sleeves. I think Chris Carter had it essentially right: Our government is engaged is constant conspiracy to keep us unaware of our ultimate slavery to alien overlords. Am I a rebel? Well, I'm a Confederate, if that counts. Mostly i just don't want to be mistaken for another one of those mindless NT herd animals.

I'm rebellious, I was it very strongly at the age of 14! :) I guess it is due to age :D

Now I still am.

I did rebel. I've calmed down a bit now. Still like rebellious people and like to hang about with them. I smoke marijuana occaisonally, drink occaisonally and want to wear clothes that fit my personality but sadly my mother can't cater for those tastes util I start getting money from the government. Thats in 13 days. YES!! !
I seem to be the only female :lol:

I am 62. Wearing leather and having long hair at your age only means you enjoy being trendy and nothing more.
