Relating to the Outsiders in Movies as an Autistic Youth

The following correspondence originally took place upon the Facebook wall of my friend, and fellow Autistic self-advocate, Jason Ross…

Jason R.: Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now:

Rayn: Amusingly enough, this was my favorite song when I was about seven years old, along with the movie “Mannequin,” which featured the song on the soundtrack. When I think about it now, it actually makes sense – I related to the mannequin! LOL! I wonder how many others on the Autistic Spectrum felt the same when they first saw it! (I think that’s why I loved the movie, “Splash,” as well) 🙂
