What is special with autistic kids? I mean, I don't understand too much why is that a disease/disability or whatever it is. I tried looking up information on google but I don't understand it too much

They have way less social skills than "nomal people". They lack empathy. They have diffeculty expressing their emotions, since they struggel to learn how to talk. Some may not speak at the level of a 5 year old before they are 15. Some never learn so speak proberly. But in some cases it is hardly nocieble that they are an autist.

in my tiny town (2k ppl) the local newspapers boss is autistic. With aid he's leading that company and working 24/7. Might be social weird, but being autistic does not mean you're a vegetable in any way - at least not for all.

Of curse, some autists are even savant. Think 0,5% ar autist aprox and 1 in a million autists are savant. Some think Albert Einsteain was savant. But there are a few alive today that we know of. They can do some amazing stuff. You should check it out

He's speaking from his experience with what sounds like a moderate-severe case of autism, so it's not as bad as he says.

It can, for lack of a better word, make someone socially retarded. They won't interact the same way others do, if at all. They won't fully understand basic idioms or sarcasm and things of the like. They can, but it takes more time to learn. Then of course there is high functioning autism which isn't that severe (the person is high functioning with it) and it doesn't hinder them that much in those ways.

In simple terms: We don't give a shit about normal social conventions and processes.

Its not that they dont give a shit about social conventions, they dont understand them or/and know them. What you are saying is like if you say that I dont give a shit about Greek, because I dont understand it.

Still Ksor (I have ban on my acc).

I am autistic, I had just woken up and was putting it in simple terms, sorry for any misunderstanding.

Though I'm not as autistic as your brother, that sounds bad

It's a disability because it makes us different enough to be alienated by others and it can get in the way of doing a lot of things.
