Autism does not equal murderous rage

The stories about Mr. Rodger have used shorthand to describe the effects of Asperger’s – social awkwardness, difficulty understanding others’ emotional worlds, love of routine – but this is like describing zebras with one word, “striped.” People with the condition are as different from each other as so-called normal folk. They are not the idiotic stereotypes so popular on shows like Glee, where the self-diagnosed girl runs around insulting people and then says blithely, “Sorry, Asperger’s!”
