Because You Aren't Autistic

NT privilege is being able to play your favourite social video-game without being constantly confronted with people using your neurotype as an insult.

I have two friends who raid in World of Warcraft. One is neurotypical and has no problem finding a raid guild because he doesn’t care if people use the r-word or “autistic” as insults when someone does something wrong.

The other is neurodivergent and usually spends a grand total of 2 weeks in a raiding guild before he ends up being kicked for being “too sensitive” about people implying his brain wiring is the worst thing you could ever have. He’s given up on finding a raiding guild.

Our first friend doesn’t see the problem the second one has with finding a raiding guild, and constantly goes on about how much he’s enjoying raiding.
