Yesterday a guy was talking to my sister and making fun of autistic kids. All she could say was that he was really mean and that he doesnt even know any. He kept going on and on about how it doesnt matter because theyre all freaks. This is my brother. He was diagnosed with autism at the age of two and was predicted to be in diapers until he was 11. He is now 13, on the football team, and he also got a girls number yesterday. We never told him he was autistic so he would always push himself to be better and not use it like a crutch. Some days he has bad days and asks why other kids find it so easy to talk and get along with others and control themselves. My mom always just says its because he was born special and everyone whose special has a weakness, like superman. The kid is honestly my hero and im proud to call this twerp my brother.
Reblog if you think autistic kids are just like everyone else :)
