IMO the only thing wrong when it comes to portrayals of say autistic people or people with a condition, is when they make a claim that EVERYBODY with that condition is like this.

There are lots of people in real life who will seem like they would be an offensive stereotype if they were fiction but they're not. So I don't see anything wrong with you relating with this character. If anyone shames you for relating to this character they're full of bullshit.

What Dani said. Yes.

Stereotypes exist because they're based off of somebody and then the majority (in this case neurotypicals) end up believing that this particular example/somebody represents EVERYBODY in their group.

Stereotypes are def harmful because they generalize large populations but at the same time, there ARE people who fit into them and I think they end up getting hurt too because they're accused of upholding stereotypes when they're just being themselves.
