...to TheIrvy... autism has a wide spectrum, from highly functional to barely functional... you're one of the lucky ones... so is stephen wiltshire and others classified as autistic savants... sometimes high functionality can be attributed to exceptionally enlightened parenting / therapy but not always, not even most times...

Nonsense. It's an actual disorder which can be seen on brainscans! It's not merely a social acceptance. It's not a belief. It's reality.
Much like how being of a different race, sexual orientation and anything else that has been seen as a "disorder".
Look at the word for a moment. Disorder. "You" don't fit in. "You" can't exist within our system of order because you're "different".
Yeah, you're different. You're still human though. But far be it from me if you feel you need to take chemicals you don't understand to fix something someone else told you was a problem.
