@lisalucier – i'm not sure I understand your question since everyone on this thread is autistic I think. Are you asking how people with autism have felt different in the past?

@merprwb and all – I'm requesting any thoughts on this quote from one of @gingerw's articles:

"It’s OK to be autistic. This one might be biased but there seems to be an attitude out there that it’s not OK to be autistic as it’s “wrong” and people with autism / autistic people need to hide who they are or should want to be cured. I’m here to tell you that it’s perfectly OK to be autistic; it’s OK to be yourself."

If you have thoughts on other points from the articles. gingerw shared regarding autism, they are also most welcome.
