The Media's Portrayal Of Autism & The Truth - Page 6

Recently I saw a positive example, in a most unlikely place: a workplace video dealing with poor workplace behaviour, and the Aspie was NOT the negative character, quite the opposite. Whilst traits were a little over dramatised, to be expected in order to set the scene, they were well done. The character was female, quirky, professional, working hard in her cubicle by herself with noise cancelling headphones, was initially portrayed by the other characters as being in her own world and not noticing the poor behaviour of the perpetrator, when in fact she had actually noticed everything and kept a detailed record of his malfeasance. She was also held to account for not speaking up earlier, so was treated equitably in my opinion.

The only jokes thrown out whilst my workplace watched it revolved around how she was “the female version of our Derphantom!”. Internal monologue: shut up and cease drawing attention to me before too many others connect the dots.

I've seen what some parents have to cope with and its really amazing how they hold it together. The yelling, screaming, biting and fits at any moment would have anyone on edge. I don't know if I could handle it so my respect goes to parents that do this job so well.
