11. Yup. This BS is SOOOO annoying.
What I really hate is the "but you are a high functioning autitsic, you have no right to speak for low functioning autistics" meme that sometimes pops up. In reality, a lot of so-called "low-functioning" autistics really aren't "low functioning". the autistic British lady who runs this blog is a good example:

http://ballastexistenz.autistics.org

It is not uncommon for a "low functioning" autistic thought to be mentally retarded to turn out to have average or above average intelligence when they find a way to communicate, often via a keyboard.
