Being one who has Aspergers(Diagnosed when I was 15), and on the spectrum I can grasp the feeling of being looked down upon, I've dealt with being bullied when growing up by my siblings to friends on the block for being different, and people easily took advantage over who I was (Like telling me to do things for false promises). Even now in college, people are still distant around me. Anyway onto the point, like many said before, when a person deviates from the norm, people usually isolate from them because they don't fit their ideals of a person.(Ignorance in reality).

However being one who once looked at autism as a curse, I changed that outlook and looked at as blessing and embraced what I was born with. Just remember, people will always be ignorant if you are different, whether autism, depression or anything of the liking, if a person doesn't approve of you, don't bother with them. Embrace who you are, and be proud of who you are :).

Why would anyone not want to be friends with someone that has poor impulse control, random mood swings, and won't stop talking about their door-knob collection? Before someone flips their shit, remember, I've worked with more mentally ill people than I care to count. And don't tell me you can't control your impulses, you gave up trying before you started.

You don't have to be friends, but this sounds super ableist...

"A-bleest"? That's a new one.

Sneer at the Evil Un-PC Person all you like; here, step behind the rock-throwing line for your safety, and use the big round ones, they travel better.
But again, I've been on forums where A-posters DID talk about their doorknob collections. In DETAIL. For YEARS. Because they thought they'd found their Secret Doorknob Club Hideaway on the Net.
And because they didn't quite know why the board wasn't talking about doorknobs, they would often try to spark the discussion to a consideration of famous doorknobs in movies or anime, and whether this season's shows could give more focus to the growing audience of doorknob fans out there.
Did I say "often"? Try "Almost every single post". With a never-say-die will and dedication to the cause. And woe be the "Play nice" person who decided to be his "friend" against all the other meanies, and was now his personal Doorknob Buddy For Life.

The rest of the world isn't always wrong. Sometimes we have problems. For some of us, it's an uphill battle to try and keep our problems up to speed with the rest of the world so they won't be so apparent, and find that nice streamlined median that doesn't cause problems for anybody, but that requires a little bit of self-awareness, now matter how many meds some may or may not be taking.
It doesn't involve making up new words to pretend they might not have a problem, any more than it involves calling an excavation company to dig up the hill so it won't be uphill for them anymore.

So it's SUPER ABLEIST if I don't want to be around someone that admits to random uncontrollable attacks? Sure, it's completely ableist that I can clamp down on the screams and smells that nobody should ever here, sure it's really ableist of me to try and keep myself wound tight enough not to lose it, but loose enough I don't snap, it must be real ableist to sit there and be forced to listen to stories of kids getting raped by sick and twisted fucks.

You don't know how it used to break my god damned heart to see these boo-hoo kids who, couldn't seem to function in the real world but sure had it together enough to play video games and watch anime all day long, come in for FREE MONEY, then I'd go see the kids with downs wanting to work and do things, and then seeing them working....

Yeah, I've earned my right to has issues with these kids.
