'Autism is a disease, dammit!' This should be removed, as it is actually true. EDIT: Well, partially true, as it is a disorder. 05:11, 24 Dec 2005 (UTC)

What's a disorder and what is not a disorder is by no means a clear cut question.

I left it for a purpose. Check Neurotypical Syndrome from the links. And yeah, Autism isn't a disease, it's a disorder, and not a bad disorder at that. ~T

Sick sick sick

You know, some autistics (including this one) believe that those who want to cure autism really just want the autistics gone. --Ж Kalir, Wandering Hippie Salesman 18:23, 5 April 2006 (UTC)

Sick sick sick Eh?

Yes, SICK, SICK, SICK!!!!!!!!!11111oneoneone.

Well... obviously, if you cure their autism they won't be autistics, therefore, they'll be gone.

Sign your posts in talk pages, silly anti-autistics. Also, they believe that you can't cure autism because it is a part of who they are, albeit different from most. --Ж Kalir, Wandering Hippie Salesman 18:15, 16 August 2006 (UTC)

Not all autistics have trouble, like the ones with Asberger's Nejee16 03:44, 9 December 2006 (UTC)

Good stuff. I especially like how it says autism is the next step in human evolution, perhaps a (humorous) comparison to vulcans could be included?-- 06:27, 1 February 2007 (UTC)

edit good job

hey i like what you guy are doing i myself am a aspie and i found your page funny I think we need to have a sence of humer about this insted of pretending that those who have it need to be babyed like a lot of plople have done to me. At least this takes less of a "they all need help" view that I think only gives un happy parents comfort. so all least from me good job uncyclopdia

-thanks for the laughts Jmccabe871

p.s after i post this i will bhe makeing a account (jmccabe871)

edit Hello

I am also an Aspie as well. I have done some of the editing, especially the part about Satan being the president of Cure Autism Now. LOL

---Digimon (Odd name for a Pokemon fan, eh?)

Hey fellow aspie, I happen to be one myself and I think the article is just a parody of autism, but we all got to be careful on joking about autism. The other article on Asperger's syndrome seems to been written by a teenager who thinks they are "weirdos" to be teased at in school. You see, there is an autism spectrum of the different levels of autism, from the Kepler's to Asperger's, and the similar symptoms of mental disorders such as ADD, OCD and ADHD seems to hold a link with autistic behavioral traits. The Cure Autism Now group is gone, but they realized it's incurable and more mental psychologists began to sense autism is just a different neurological type of brain. Autism is NOT a disease or illness, it won't kill a person, but it will affect how a person thinks or behaves, or the saying goes "Autism is a world" the person lives in. Btw, I have an above average IQ, able to ride a bike, balance a checkbook, can speak 3 other languages, had a girlfriend, got married with a child of her own, and possessed a job now and then. Autism should never be an impediment to a normal life, maybe that's the "fun" part of the article is the information you're reading off of it is just plain STUPID. + PotatoSmut 18:27, 13 April 2009 (UTC)

Hello, fellow aspies. I agree with the first guy. You have the right to make fun of anything, and I nearly wet myself reading this. Good job to the good folks at uncyclopedia -- 20:07, November 16, 2013 (UTC)

@ Potato Smut: If you think this page is bad, then stay away from the Autism article at Encyclopedia Dramatica. At least this site tries to be funny rather than merely offensive. Sheogorath (Autie) 06:07, July 19, 2014 (UTC)

edit I have Autism

I have autism, the asperger's syndrome to be exact, but this page is damn good. Great job, you guys. Ineedhelpalot

Me too. DJ Mixerr 03:07, January 15, 2011 (UTC) DJMIXERR (talk)(contributions)

edit What's with all the attention?

Now people keep telling me I have Aspergers but i'm not any different from any other person. If you ask me, I think "Asperger's Syndrome" and "Autism" are just excuses for people to make money and make people boring by prescribing Ritalin or something to them. It's not a disease, it's an excuse. The preceding unsigned comment was added by PhantomTheUnknown (talk • contribs)

edit December 2012 rewrite

I must read no more....Reading this page feels rather weird. Its probably because when I read it, I dont find much funny stuff in the text, and because of that, I'm constantly worrying about the fact that I might read something negative towards autism. --MrRatermat2 (talk) 13:26, December 8, 2012 (UTC)

Nah. Could be it's just a sucky article. And by "sucky", I mean "shitty". ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-usSat, Dec 8 '12 15:03 (UTC)
That an article is sucky, though an opinion, could have objective merit. To worry about reading something negative towards autism, is something MrRatermat2 brought with him--like some people who visit our articles on religions. Spıke Ѧ 15:28 8-Dec-12
Yikes! This article is a special kind of sucky, the sucky product of many visitors to whom the diagnosis of Autism is the perfect excuse for personal shortcomings or misbehavior, as well as a ready-made identity with a grant of immunity. Hence the large chaw of External Links, some of which are probably the personal blogs of the visitors. However, whether or not this "diagnosis" is of something medical--see above on this talk page--it's not impossible to convert any fact into a funny article. Spıke Ѧ 15:36 8-Dec-12
I read a large variety of things. I just dont like it when people make negative comments about groups or types of people who dont deserve the hate.
An example would be: Nations, people shouldn't be mocked for being Scottish or American. But, people like whores and murderers should be insulted instead. I guess its just me that feels that way. --MrRatermat2 (talk) 14:05, December 9, 2012 (UTC)
Now, see, there I disagree with you. Scots and Americans should be mocked precisely for being Scots and Americans. Everybody knows that both Scots and Americans enjoy drunken romances with their food, the difference being that the Scots do it while their food is still alive. ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-usSun, Dec 9 '12 14:12 (UTC)
Haha, that was funny, but I hate it when people plain out say things like "Everyone hates you and your family."
Again, that would be rather funny. --MrRatermat2 (talk) 14:22, December 9, 2012 (UTC)
Everyone does hate you and your family. Especially seeing as how you are all so handsome or beautiful -- it really was unjust for you lot of rascally scum to keep all the genes for blond hair, doe-eyes, and large, bountiful breasts to yourselves. Don't even get me started on the money. I don't mind the least bit that you and your army of cyclopean horse-men took all of our gold ducats, but was it necessary to melt them down and pour them into a massive cast formed into the words "FUCK YOU PEASANTS"? The way the sun glints off of it every morning makes the acid rise in our throats. One of these days, when we can scrape together enough old boards and pig-entrails to build a trebuchet, you fuckers will rue the day. ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-usSun, Dec 9 '12 14:33 (UTC)
Well, while you schmucks were debating humor (MrRatermat2's point being that, since some objects of humor cannot help it, we should pull our punches or just go away--a point that will never carry the day here), I rewrote most of the article, the serious points being that autism is a great diagnosis both for students that simply annoy the teacher, and for excuse-makers who want government checks. But the serious rants and nagging are gone. Spıke Ѧ 15:18 9-Dec-12
You would make an amazing psychologist with that attitude, seriously! "Muh muh, you are just ACTING, muh, muh". But otherwise, you're thinking about kids with Aspergers. Autism was generally coined for describing kids with the IQ of 3 and are unable to even grab a ball without trying to eat it. --MrRatermat2 (talk) 15:26, December 9, 2012 (UTC)
I never claim to be a psychologist (though I deserve a retainer for my recent sessions with Kamek98). I sometimes claim to write humor. With your own attitude, it is less likely that you will write humor than merely edit pages to reinforce an orthodoxy, just like the previous generation of authors of this article.

edit Addition request

Faking autism is a way to get on government disability support to get free rent, along with income that is not taxed. In the movie The Ringer, an actor fakes being autistic and competes in the Special Olympics in order to repay a hospital bill. When the pastor finds out he admitted faking autism for a quick buck, he is punched in the face. Another famous case in Ontario, Canada was a gifted math student who won a regional competition. Teachers had a difficult time noticing that the student had autism, but did notice grammatical errors in his speech and writing, for which the parents naturally demanded compensation. This, of course, was the forerunner of the Ontario Disability Support Program. Somewhere in the above section, could somebody add the fact both Amelia née Amanda Baggs and Donna Williams are suspected of faking Autism due to the fact that both are attention whores who have been on TV, plus the fact that Amelia claims to have lost speech in early childhood, something that is not backed up by anybody who knew her in school?

Sheogorath 06:14, July 19, 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the suggestion. I see that this is not a request for cyberbullying by proxy, but that both these "autists" have Wikipedia pages that veer toward self-promotion (which, if true, doesn't need more of it on Uncyclopedia). Now let's talk humor. The article already has a list of individuals like Tesla (each famous for something other than autism) and we are wary of the tendency of lists to attract crufty new entries forever. The above paragraph could become a section Faking autism but adding a new list of individuals not generally known will lead to more new nominations; and revert wars involving the self-promoters themselves; and won't enhance the article apart from adding another list very similar to the previous list. The joke of autism being faked for personal gain is adequately told without pointing fingers to individuals. I think your request is not all about joking but partly about using Uncyclopedia to catalog things going on elsewhere, which we avoid. Spıke Ѧ 11:32 19-Jul-14

edit This article sucks, not funny at all

This article is prejudiced against autistics saying for example talking about them being able to function in the modern world they say "a modern economy needing a lot of people who merely stare out into space and mumble gibberish". THAT IS NOT HUMOR, THAT IS PREJUDICE BASED ON STEREOTYPES. Whoever wrote this and also whoever thought this was funny is such an bigot, in other words for idiots, discriminating. The preceding unsigned comment was added by SomeRandomComedian15 (talk • contribs)

No, that is called an exaggeration that is safely absurd — also the notion that businessmen/politicians think you are useless but think they can use you. If you are going to pick a user name with Comedian in it, it is time to show what you can do. Spıke Ѧ 22:09 14-Oct-14
