Neurotypical Gatekeeping of Autism Causes Harm

It’s human nature to want to compare our struggles. “Ben said he’s tired. I don’t think he knows what tired is! I’m tired but I just get on with it.

You don’t hear me complaining!” “Amy said she’s got depression but every time I see her she’s smiling. I can’t smile like that when I’m depressed.” I get it.

It can be toxic, but I get it. If someone claims to have the same struggles that we face but acts differently to us, it can be confusing.
