    • Unpopular opinion: some people with autism just shouldn't be hired for certain jobs. Now, if this guy managed to start his own successful business, he isn't one of them.

    • When my dad came home from Iraq no one would hire him because of his injuries. Yes I know that’s illegal, so did he. But we didn’t have the money to sue. McDonald’s finally hired him on the night shift but we were still barely scraping by. The world is an ugly, horrid place for the disabled.
