I love someone. by BatmanWithBunnyEars I love someone. by BatmanWithBunnyEars
I love someone with Autism.

The polychromatic emoticon represents autism in three key ways:

1) He's colored with several vibrant, cheerful colors like the Autism Awareness puzzle.

2) He performs a repetitive, stereotyped motion, as people with autism often do. I'll bet you didn't know the beloved :La: was autistic! :la:

3) He doesn't respond to the green emoticon's affection like one might expect, much like people with autism have difficulty interpreting and responding to social cues. Nevertheless, you can see that he's excited to get his friend's affection! :hug:

Drawn in MS Paint, animated in Gimp, 120 frames, 15 colors. It's my second animation so far! It took a few days to coordinate all the independent motions in a continuous loop, but it was worth it!

For more information on autism, please check out my Autism Ambigram Tessellation. In addition to the artist description and link in the Daily Deviation banner, a lot of people left great comments on it!

You deserve it. This stamp makes me feel all warm inside. I have Asperger's, but alot of it has gotten better through therapy at a young age. So no one really notices it unless I tell them.

I know how you feel. I used to hate it too. I'm not sure about you, but I've learned over the years that it's not always a bad thing. There are neagtive and positive aspects about Asperger's syndrome (At least I try to think of it that way.) I don't know how much of it you have, and I don't personally know you, but just know it's not all bad. You're smarter than most people, and you're one of a kind.
(I don't know if that made any type of sense to you, and I apologize if it didn't. I'm just trying to lift your spirits up a bit.)

Well, not to pity you, I am sorry about you having your breakdown. Honestly though, I just looked up what HOCD is. I honestly don't know what to tell you about that. I just hope things get better for you, and please don't be mad at me. I just wanna try to understand, and give a little bit of advice. But I guess I'm in no position to do so.

Asperger's is a form of autism, and yes, it's Asperger's. :)

Yes, I'm actually diagnosed with Asperger's, so I've been to plenty of special needs programs with other special needs kids, and it's so different from hardcore autism. Aspies tend to function and develop as well as everyone else, so you tend to see people accepting of them in jobs, relationships, etc. But I've never actually seen that with someone who has a harsher form of autism, I've never seen them get a job, or anyone ever ask them to be in a relationship, or generally be as accepting of them as they would be with aspies, so I was so happy when I saw this stamp at first glance. xD Still am, I just really hope one day I can see someone with severe autism being as loved and cherished as any other person would be.

And good luck with your relationship, hope you fall in love with our weird habits!

That's so true, they don't ever really hug you back, you have to warn them if you want that reaction.

No, they kinda just sit there wondering what to do next, or being overly excited, or sometimes just freezing up.

It's so hard to hug a person with autism. =_='

I have Autism myself. PDD-NOS. If I remember right, its a form of it, a really high form of it, but none the less, still a form of autism and on the autism scale. I act like a normal person, but still cant really figure out some Social cues. Yet I have a Fiancee who loves me with all of his heart, and has told me that I am not someone with a "Mental Retardation" (My own mother, some of the people in the old school system that I use to go to. The college I went to. A few people who didnt know me called me a retard) He says that I am beautiful either way, and that I am cute, and a kind person. He didnt even know I had it because I didnt even act like I had it until we started talking personally with each other, and was shocked at first.

But then he just said he loved me either way.

Cute emoticons, I also like the message and how every detail in the composition reflects autism.

I have Asperger's and my friends like hugs... I feel awkward, but let them anyways (wich I didn't do at first). I guess they have been conditioning me to like hugs since I met them :XD:
