Does any other autistic get invalidated by autistic stereotypes? I’ve been told I’m not autistic because I have friends.

      Im told im not autistic because i act normal, which is kinda rude. Autistic people are normal people too.

      Yes, I’ve been told that I probably don’t need an accommodations at school because I’m a good student. As if that means that I’m not struggling as well! Do they want me to, like, have more meltdowns?

      Yes, that's happened to me too, especially because I've been masking so long, and at this point I've gotten fairly good at it. It's really strange to me that there's an assumption that autistics don't have friends.

      Yes it's so frustrating!! I've been told so many times that "I don't look autistic" or whatever bullcrap reason they use
