    I don't know if "go easy on you" is the right way to put it. It's not making things easy / giving you special treatment because you're autistic, it's making things more equal / giving you accommodations that you deserve. Society should reform to fit the needs of disabled and neurodivergent people, not the other way around. You deserve the accommodations you need to make it an equal playing field, but I hesitate to call it "going easy on you"... Don't give neurotypicals any reason to start claiming you get special treatment and are at an advantage.

    I don't have autism but my youngest brother does though. His middle and and high school years were ****. Other kids in school would call him stupid or retarded because since he has a mild case of autism, he would talk to his people that consider them his friends, and they would walk him away because of the way he acts. They would bully him calling him weird and throw objects at him. One time I went to pick him up and the kids were beating him throwing objects at him and I told them straight up, "Hey! leave him alone, he is special". So yeah society needs to accommodate those with autism and be accepting. They should go easy on them.

    It depends but in general every one, NT or ASD alters their behavior to conform to social norms.

    Yeah I understand how you feel because I was diagnosed with autism at a young age shortly after I was born.

    If anybody ever makes fun of you and/or calls you a retard and do what I do and tell them that they're actually the retards because they make false assumptions based off what they think they know and don't wanna educate themselves ( because that's literally what a lot of retards do aside from talking like " how's come " instead of " why " ) and I can literally almost guarantee you that if you do it around their family and/or their friends they'll immediately get embarrassed and pissed off in front of all their family and/or friends and wanna argue and/or fist fight with you

    Part of me thinks so, but then the other part of me thinks that that would not be seeing you as equal, which I think all people are equal, so that means the good and the bad that comes with being equal...

    If that makes sense.
