Re: If you believe in vaxing, but have friends who don't...
They usually know because of some stereotype of what people with autism are like. Maybe they have a dog who is a little slow to warm up with strangers, but they decide its funny to talk about how they have autism, and usually insert a few offensive jokes about autism in there. I just nod politely and move on. They don't mean to offend me, so I don't allow it to. Then again, maybe it's a Texas thing, because I have heard it tons since we moved here, but not before. Everybody and their aunt has a dog with autism down here. Must be the heat.
