Be the bigger man. Violence is never really an answer imho. As for autism, I worked with a guy who had it and took (some form of unknown to me)
medication and he was the nicest and happiest person in the whole department. Australian too, who I always seem to like.
It could be a mis-interpretation thing, it can happen. Maybe he doesn't mean it the way you are seeing/taking it but don't let it get to you. If
talking doesn't help, leave him to get on with it. If people find it funny, that's their problem, not yours. I realise it probably isn't easy but some
people just aren't worth the trouble.
If it really is an issue, try the direct approach. Talk to him on his own, be honest and direct and just ask him why he is being like that. If he
continues, just leave him and his dumb "friends" to get on with it. I think you are better than that.
Friends come and go in this life and trying
too hard is not an option. If you can only be funny and liked by others by denigrating another person, then it's going to be a sad and lonely life
soon enough for him.
As for alcohol, I don't know how you react to that with your condition or possible medication but let him drink the most. The advantage should be
ETA One more thing. Do your classmates know you have autism? It might help them understand your possible idiosyncrasies or the things he seems to
derive joy from illustrating. Just a thought.
