Fair enough. Sorry, I'm just tired of dealing with people throwing it at me as an insult.

That's like, the lamest insult ever. The other day, I got called a "limp wristed liberal." Now that's an insult. Got me hot under the collar like no other.

"Oh, no wonder that Devac finished the three-hours-long exam in forty minutes. It's not because he works on this shit for countless hours. It's because of autism. His messed up wiring makes it so much easier for him than it is for us, normal people."

That's what I hear when 'fellow students' call me autistic. It's not lame. It's insulting and substantiated solely on me being good at non-verbal stuff and bad with people.

Sorry. I was trying to say "autistic" just isn't a very creative insult.

I know it sucks. If it helps though, it's just a sign you're kind of kicking ass, because your success makes them feel so vulnerable they have to make up dismissive conclusions about you to help their ego. Keep your head up man, shit like this tends to smooth out the older you get. People become nicer, you develop thicker skin, your perspective changes, etc.

If it helps, I still think you're awesome.

Not to worry.

Just so you know: I may very well be as straightforward in suggesting solutions to the problems as you are. For future reference, consider that I might be helping you solve something before you think I attack you.
