You are extremely voluble for an autistic person, but you could have made your point in a lot less words. I get that you don’t think that Netflix’s ‘Atypical’ series is a good portrayal of an autistic teen’s struggles to deal with life. That surprises me, firstly as I thought it was quite good, but secondly because it clearly said that Autism was a spectrum, so if the main character doesn’t resemble you, maybe you’re on a different point on the autistic spectrum.

Anyway, it is fiction, designed to entertain, not a documentary. You can’t hold it to the same level of accuracy, as it isn’t supposed to be true.

The solution, if you don’t like ‘Atypical’, is not to watch it.
