I’ve always been unique and I know it. My name is ZacharyW, which is my YouTube account name. I am a soon to be author and have written many stories about my fictional universe. I am the smartest person I know. But I also suffer from Asperger’s disease which is a form of autism. Now I don’t want you to pity me for this. I actually see it as an improvement more then a disability.
What I mean is that having this form of Autism gives me a chance to see the world in ways no one will ever see it. Hard to believe I used to make fun of Bronies but yet here I am typing this. I used to also hate MLP. But then I found Derpy who reminded me of myself when I was younger when autism was worse and I was half as smart as I am now. Anyway so I discovered Derpy and then everything changed when I saw a few messages sent to Hasbro saying Derpy was offensive and Retarded. I was offended by that to the point I changed. Seems stupid I know but here’s why..
“It’s important to be different. If we weren’t then there wouldn’t be any difference between us and machines.”
I wrote that for one of my books.
What I’m trying to say is that we need to be different and I see the purpose of what you are trying to achieve here. Truth is I used to be picked on all the time growing up and one thing I learned. Who’s really the messed up one? The person with the disorder or different religion, different race, sexuality, or even ethnic belief? Or is it the one that stoops so low as to insult them for being unique?
I do not hate these haters, but there’s one thing Derpy taught me. Sure they may laugh at you and hate you. But there’s only one thing you can do. Stand up tall, brush off your shoulder, and keep doing your best. Since I became a Brony, I have actually enjoyed my life, all except for a laptop that constantly malfunctions. I have made new friends and I have made a couple new OCs to add to my army. Trust me, I have thousands of these guys. I know what it’s like to be picked on and pushed around all the time. If you need help, then feel free to contact me.
Oh yeah, one last thing: Forest, keep up the good work. I see how sites like these can take away the pain that we feel sometimes. You are perfect for this and I thank you for setting this up. There’s so much hate where there should be love and compassion.
Be different everypony and keep being yourself. After all it’s great to be different and be yourself when no one accepts you for who you are.
