Nancy asks…

How come even autistic people post questions on yahoo answers and communicate with others?

Okay I think autistic are those who are self absorbed and don’t communicate with anyone and keeps on doing repititive actions and just sit at one place with no expressions on their face and pays no attention to anyone and is lost in their own world. I don’t even know if they can read and write. If someone try to talk to them or interrupt them they become violent or uncontrollable. This is what I think about autistic people and I have seen in TV serial about autistic girl.

But here on y/a, I can see some people are posting question and answer and they say I am autistic, and they even talk to other people here, ask question and advice others by answering. Are they trolls or a real autistic can really communicate with others. Do u think autistic people use other media tools like facebook or anything.
Chill people, I never had an intention to offend anyone, but if still I did, then I sincerely apologize. I am not judging. Actually I don’t know about this disease and only know what I saw on TV. So when I see autistic people asking questions here, I was astonished and so in order to clear my doubt and out of curiosity I asked this question.

Well, that pretty much explains everything, Your mental image of autism is way off, and clichéd.

“Actually I don’t know about this disease ”
Correct. By strict technical definition it’s not even a disease.

We vary. If you want to grab hold of one thing about people with autism, it’s that we vary.
