So, people think I have no sense of humor at all because of how intellectual and quiet I am. I may not prefer the subject of what everyone else is laughing at for the moment, but I’ll laugh when I’m watching something I enjoy, like at the older Disney sitcoms (The Suite Life of Zack and Cody. Wizards of Waverly Place) for example. I know that not showing expressions and emotion on the outside is one of the common features of being autistic. But what a lot of people don’t realize is I try my best to be happy on the inside. I wish my grandfather understood this. He’s always cracking jokes to get me to smile. Which I don’t mind, but I’m not mad at the world like people believe either. I’m pretty sure autistic humor is, idk more choosy and selective? And ironically neurotypicals don’t always agree with what we find funny. Also because I have a trauma history of bullying, I don’t prefer loud laughter because I’m too used to having people laugh AT me.
