I have autism.and I honestly hate the fact that my parents are clearly tired of me, and the way I act. They're usually embarrassed by me. And are always worried whenever I start talking in a public situation like I'm gonna say something dumb at any moment. And I feel ashamed to be called their son. What should I do?

Google "autism support groups". Most are for parents with kids worse off than you, but among them you'll find groups for functioning spectrum people to meet and offer each other friendship and moral support.

I hate autists that can't be fucking functional. I know it's really not your fault but FUCK you are unbearable to the majority of people.
I pity you and I don't wish autism to anyone ever.
It sucks op but I hope you find friends and i think the best thing should be to speak with your parents about it. Hatinf them will not do anything, just tell them you are hurt by them and you want to know if you can compensate for being autistic and if they can help you be more functional in society

Hey, have you tried talking about this with your parents? Just be honest with them, tell them you worry that you embarrass them and that you're ashamed to be their son. I bet they'll support you and tell you that's not the case.

Next, you need to start addressing the public situation issues. I've got a friend who's high-functioning with Aspergers and he learned how to interact with people by writing out little flash cards to remind himself. Someone tells a joke? Laugh. Someone sneezes? Say bless you. Someone compliments you? Thank them. Especially if you discuss this with your parents, they may be able to help you work out how to cope in social situations. Alternatively, if you live in a country with free healthcare, you can discuss these issues with a doctor. It sounds like you need psychological help to build up your confidence.

There are plenty of people out there who'll support you, and you need to be brave to approach them for help. Start with your parents. Good luck :)
