    No, it's very simple. We stopped letting natural selection remove the inferior genes from the gene pool and that's what allowed shit like autism to propagate itself throughout the species.

      It could be worse. You could be laying in the streets addicted to fentanyl with shit running down your leg. Also consider that you're to blame for the way your life currently is. And if you're aware of your problems, then fix them instead of wasting time crying in an imageboard and looking for scapegoats.

    I came here for cartoons, ended up staying for comics (back when Cinemaphile actually talked about comics)
    I genuinely love the mediums, their history, etc

      I had really good grades throughout all of school and was in a lot of honors classes, but had a lot of mental/emotional problems due to abuse and neglect, and people assumed I was fine because I didn’t misbehave so I ended up getting burnt out and not going to college. Sometimes I wonder what I could’ve been. I’ve thought about giving it a try since then but I feel like it’s been too long since I’ve been in an academic setting and my brain wouldn’t be able to keep up. Also I’d have no idea what to major in, no career seems right for me.

      I wonder if I had been more of a little shit instead of occupying myself with one of the only things that made me happy, cartoons, my life would’ve turned out better.

        Same here. Except I did go to college, but had to take a medical leave halfway through the second semester because I was basically nonfunctional.

    Chosen? No that’s just how this happens, and if it wasn’t this it would be something else. Trains, cars, books, etc. people like us have always existed, they’ve always done this sort of shit. People just didn’t care because they were seen passionate or dedicated. It’s still the same only now the knowledge and passion doesn’t do much for society as a whole so it’s considered useless.

    Cause I'm just good at visual processing or some shit. Visuals excite me, and comics and cartoons are easier than getting into rich people fine art.

    It's not actual autism, even though there are autistic people on the board, it's just that you like the thing and you're not ashamed to talk about it. I've seen married men seriously discussing this sort of thing of course they back down to be acceptable to normies but it's not out of place behavior. Like it seems to be socially acceptable to discuss sport but if you discuss it too much you'll get lumped in with the nerds as well.

    like many on this site I was mostly raised on tv and games. I'm also a very visual person so colorful cartoons are more stimulating than other media.

    The point of autistic people is to recognize sociopaths in a tribal setting. Think about what autistic people do
    >sensitive to sound
    >walk on their toes
    >hyper focused
    These are the traits of someone who would be hunting in a tribal setting. Autistic people are also empathetic. They want to share what they provide and don’t ask for much in return. The autist is honest, they have no reason to lie. This is in contrast to the sociopath. The sociopath is a manipulator. They trick people so that they can get what they want while exerting the lowest possible effort. This doesn’t work on autistic people because the autistic person functions based on a strict set of rules, and no manipulation by the sociopath will make the autist sway from their rules. Sociopaths exist to use and manipulate society. Autists exist to stop sociopaths.

    That reminds me: few weeks ago an anon said that "this is why autistic people should create media cause they're to autistic to self insert." But isnt it the other way around?

    • 3 weeks ago

      Nah. Self inserting is very normie behavior. About half of all men do it and almost 99% of women. How many friends do you have that make themselves in a videogame? What percentage of people playing Skyrim pick a human looking race? It’s the same for other kinds of media. There’s a reason the best comics generally have one person on both art and writing. It’s because they’re so autistic that they’d rather spend hundreds of hours learning both skills over just working with another person. However, the truth is that self insert characters are better at selling books. It’s why a lot of successful webcomics have a pretty looking normal white girl or a plane looking pale guy with dark hair as their lead. People like self inserting. It’s how they engage with media. It’s a smart fiscal decision to make a self insert character. It’s sort of like the bit in Understanding Comics about subjectivity and objectivity, but to it’s extreme. It’s also why simpler artstyles generally work better for storytelling than the over rendered shit you see in the big two today.

      Comics and cartoons are an incestuous social club. Autistic people don’t work there because they aren’t social.That’s why characterizations are all over the place. People write characters as if they are the character, instead of treating the characters as individuals with their own beliefs and goals. The character’s perspective on what’s “good” is what the writer’s perspective is, not the character’s.

        Its true that autistic people have difficulties in communication, I don't see how this rebukes what

        Big 2 comics are full of sociopaths. Sociopaths are the natural enemy of the autist. They cannot coexist.

    I'm a card-carrying autist (it's what allows me to live as a neet while I work on my social phobia problems) and I don't obsess over comics or cartoons, I just read them like I'd read a book, without memorising what issue something happened or the convoluted history of a character or writers/artists working on the issues and their history or any of that shit. It makes me really doubt the veracity of my diagnosis and that I only got it because of the social phobia making me act like an autist during the interviews with the cute Doctor. Because all other autists seem to have that obsession angle, whether they're memorising episode names of Star Trek or the batting averages of a baseball player.
