When I first started learning about the differences and the symptoms, and to this day, I keep wondering how so many go around believing they are "normal" because they are just comfortable being bullies to anyone weaker than they are in the civilized (domesticated animals) environment. There's a reason it was finally renamed to "Autism Spectrum": because so many people have at least some difficulties with being shoved into a box with limited ways to access each other (Our modern societies are mostly just milder versions of Victorian bullshit). The ones raising the biggest problems for AS people are the ones afraid of their own realities and chained to a privilege of pretending they are 'normal'.

Humans are not machines, and AS helps us understand the difference (while we play with trains...ha ha).
