‘You lose initiative; you become afraid to try something before you’ve been told how to do it, because you’re used to the teacher/therapist/whomever criticizing your attempts, telling you “No, that’s wrong” whenever you do something that differs even a little bit from the response they’re looking for.’

* They hate you. Yes, you.
“The only reason they’re not about me is that I’m old and verbal enough to not be vulnerable to that kind of abuse. They would be all too happy to practice it on me if they could. Autistic people do not get abused because they are low-functioning, they get abused because they do weird things.”

Re-directed it away from the profiteers, away from the rich white businessmen and bankers. Away from themselves.”
