None of you autists are actually like that, are you?
FUCK YOU, I HAVEN'T HAD ANY CHICKEN TENDIES FOR A MONTH.
He's one of the lower functioning autists who get overwhelmed by stimulation, the rocking and music keep him calm.
We here on /r9k/ are the types of autists who KNOW we're autistic and choose never to interact with normal people because it's incredibly awkward for everyone.
I'm not autistic but I do that rocking movement so often my family makes fun of me for it. I don't even realize I'm doing it and it's pretty comforting.
Should I be worried about something?
I do this when i listen to music. Apparently it's pretty common?
