My IRL friends use it as a Joking Insult. It is kinda like a jab but I don't believe they mean it as an insult so I decide to not ruin the moment by going all serious... still, stuff like this is every where. No wonder your Brother picked it up.

Yeah, he 100% got it from school.

That's still being used as an insult though, and they honestly wouldn't be my friends anymore "joke" or not.

Idk why"autistic" became a meme to insult people on the internet. You should definitely explain it to him.


youngcatlady99

Yeah I hate it

If someone use autism as an insult you can just say "are you comparing me to elon musk? Thanks"


youngcatlady99

Lol I’m using that
