Bullshit. Empathy and respect need to be earned. Both ways.I mean, apparently empathy is one of those one-way things. You know, I'm supposed to adjust for everyone else, but no one ever has to adjust for me.
From what I understood most or many neurodiverse people experience empathy just the same but just struggle with the expression (correct me if I am wrong).
Neurotypicals demanding that autistic people need to adjust themselves to their standards are just being an ass by not even bothering to understand the challenges.
