Seriously, parents by qbark Seriously, parents by qbark
I don't know how many times I've seen parents BAWWWW about their autistic child and how their kid prevents THEM from doing what THEY want to do.

Hate to break it to you, lady, but your kid probably is more frustrated with his or her condition than YOU are.

So, you have to spend a lot of time with therapy. So, you have to spend a lot of money on said treatments. So, you have to write down his or her behavior.

Your kid has to deal with STARES and LAUGHS and TEASING EVERY FUCKING DAY. If you think other parents staring at you in a store because you "can't control your kid" is bad, think of all the pain your kid might be going through.
Many tantrums with people with autism are set off by sensory overload, and coming from an autistic here, sensory overload IS NOT FUN.

In fact, I think it's much less fun than not being able to get as fucking bagel with your friends.

This stamp goes out to all the kids I see in stores who have autism and speech difficulties who aren't allowed to make a sound because they sound different when they try to talk.

This stamp goes out to my friend who's mom won't let her sing in public because it "embarrasses her"

This goes out to all of the poor kids on that shit video that Autism Speaks put out (Autism every Day)

I should also recognize the good parents out there, like mine, and quite I few others I've met. However, there should really be more who understand that autism isn't a disease, but rather, a different way of thinking and processing.

TL;DR: Parents need to get the fuck over themselves and actually help their kids, not make their problems worse.

Shame on any parent who thinks their Autistic child is an 'embarrassment" . I mean oh my God.

those parents are usually the parents who should not be parents.
Yeah I know. I know a lot of loving people who would love to adopt a child like and and would be superior parents.

I totally agree. As a sufferer who had to go through treatment like this, and as a person who's seen what good it can do when parents actually help out (nee, my partner, who also has it...) :) 

Also, what's with the whole bagel thing. I love bagels.

i'm sorry you had to putt up with that bullshit in your life ;;

the bagel thing was a reference to this horrendous "autism awareness" video that basically pinned people with autism as nothing but burdens

you should see some of the comments on Autism related YT Videos... Man some of the people can be right assholes.

youtube commentors are just on another plane of stupidity.  i tend to disregard anything they write.

As a person who is presently trying to build a successful channel, it's really annoying having to deal with these people. you put hours upon hours into working on filming, editing and so on, for your videos to A: Recieve stupid comments, or B: get overtaken by Nyan Cat. xD

Thank God my parents aren't like that. They are very happy to have me even though I'm autistic. I'm glad that they help me out.

Sensory overload is very unpleasant, and I usually experience it at least once a week. When it happens to me, I lose focus, I feel agitated, and I get very moody. Often I will give in to rage and start yelling. After yelling for a while, I end up crying. I try to get help when I'm upset since I rely on others to make me feel better - it's hard to make myself feel better, especially when I'm not at home.

That is a powerful piece that you have I agree with you.
