Stop excusing Elon’s lack of social skills and grandiose self concept as being an autism thing. That’s bullshit. Most folks on the spectrum aren’t remotely like this. It’s not the autism. It’s the asshole-ism. The narcissistic personality disorder. He’s a jackass. Period.

People on the autism spectrum wouldn’t likely be trolls because trolling presumes an awareness of what triggers other people’s emotions, which is something most folks on the spectrum don’t do. Trolling is conscious sadism. Autists don’t do that generally..
All these jackholes on 4chan talk about how they’re doing “weapnized autism,” but that’s bullshit for most of them. It’s anti-social personality disorder, ya losers. Sociopathy. Not autism. You’re just shitty people
They want to cover their shitty behavior in a recognized “disorder” because it gives them an out for what they do. But its time to call bullshit. Folks on the spectrum are overwhelmingly kind and thoughtful. 4chan folks and tech bro/crypto bro/Elon bro assholes are the opposite
