    Has any of you sick of being harassed? Are you tired of being picked on? And are you tired of being stigmatized and marginalized?

    I am, and I would like to make a movement and when I say movement, I don’t mean 10 to 30 people. I mean 100,000 people on the Spectrum working together to fight for our civil rights!

    It's good for you that you can recognise these people and take steps to avoid being manipulated in future.

    That's how I feel every day when I get bombarded by criminal scammers calling me on the phone. Where they likely know my age group and simply assume that I'm an easy target for fraud.

    Yet to date over the years I never answered a single one of them. In reality I receive very few calls in terms of legitimate friends or relatives who would actually call me. Leaving the rest to easily identify as scammers or spammers.

    They keep calling, probably assuming that I'll slip up and answer their bogus calls. But it's never happened. :cool:

    That's the whole reason I hated middle school. I had no friends besides Nate and most of the kids picked on me. The teachers weren't much help, either.

    I would like all of you who go to school start making a civil rights movement. We need SOCIAL CHANGE now. I’m sick of being bullied, misunderstood, targeted, and being accused of being a shooter! We need to start a NON-VIOLENT MOVEMENT BY CREATING A CONFLICT IN THE CLASSROOM! If someone bullies you.

    I WANT CHANGE IN OUR COMMUNITY!
    We will never get changed in our community if we don’t stand up together.

    We need to start keeping in touch with each other and we need to be strong together.

    "we're calling about your car's warranty"
    My car is over 20 years old. *hangs up*

    But seriously what are you talking about?
    Never been accused of being a "Shooter"
    Despite having a CC permit and owning an "Assault weapon" and being military trained.

    Don't want to be bullied - GROW a spine and stand up for your self.
    I was only "Bullied" once in school, I escalated it into a fight FAST. lost the fight and was never bullied again because I stood up for myself. Bullies are COWARDS.

    Targeted? Most people can't even recognise us.

    Misunderstood? Explain what you mean. Keep trying to communicate until people understand you.

    DON'T BE WEAK!

    One thing that really annoys me is that when the government starts cutting the budget, anything related to mental health is always among the first to go. It does not matter where you stand politically; This is BS!
