It's a term from the chans and it's frankly disgusting.

Essentially anyone that is obsessed with a topic.  Overly shares.  Is aggressive  with opinion.

If you disagree or get upset call them autistic.

It's a modern day hurling of the R word.

Nope, it was meant as a compliment. Autism is treated like a superpower now on the internet. I was referencing a couple of very appreciative comments from the subthread with that guy's analysis.

The concept is linked to Sherlock Holmes and "Rain Man" and similar super-focused amazing genius results from fiction (at least). This started (also on the chans if I recall correctly) back when Shia LeBoef was trying to hide his Trump resistance flags, and super-detailed and focused analytical teams foiled him at least three times within days or in one case hours.

The concept of "autistic screeching" to describe what SirAndy was mentioning, is also still alive and well as a insult criticism, although I don't know why anyone would think from the context that I was trying to insult the analysis. ???

It's admittedly weird, that the term is used for great praise and also great criticism, by the same people, but there we are.

The son of my best friend from high school has rather crippling levels of autism, so I promise I wouldn't report its use as an insult; but I wouldn't use it as an insult regardless -- I have never once done so.  O:-)

You'll have to forgive the misinterpretation Jason. 

As a teacher I heard that phrase hurled about a lot, and since I had IEP's I knew when it was accurate and how much it could hurt the kids on the other end.

Some of my best students were autistic and a lot of them had a really hard time, not just from the other kids but sadly their parents.  I had parents that treated supremely gifted autistic children like they were non-functional as people.

It also got thrown around at any kid that just seemed to have a passion for something.   I hated seeing kids being shamed for taking an extensive interest  with a word related to a condition that you shouldn't even be ashamed of.

My experiences made me a bit touchy on the subject.

As the father of two autistic non-savant young men I'm a little biased myself.

Mixed review at my house. My son panned it. My son-in-law loved it. My thought was "Hmmmm, it's not as bad as I thought it would be". Had it been the first or second Star wars movie I would have thought it was one of the great movies of all time. I guess I am tired of seeing the same plot over and over and over. The poor writers must be twisted into pretzels by their effort to add twists to the same story again and again.
