This is where you can share characters from tv, books, movies, etc. who you think are autistic. :)

Kafka (kafkawontlie) I think all can agree on the character Temperance “Bones” Brennan from the show Bones. A great character from a great show.

I am on to the end of the second to last season of this right now. And she's absolutely autistic - she's partially based on an autistic friend of one of the writing/production team, but they decided not to have her called autistic on the show because they a) didn't think the studio would let them, and b) didn't think she was quite 'autistic enough', which is ridiculous now that what autism looks like in the majority of female/femme-socialised autistic people is more widely known. In the early oughts, the image of the white male middle class kid/adult obsessed with trains, baseball stats, or mathematics still dominated.

You should. It's a bit slow at the start, but I think it's picking up.

Si (si1729) | 4 comments I was reading the Murderbot series too.
Not sure if he counts because he's a robot, but he is uncomfortable around people, especially when they are emotional. He has touble reading emotions too. He likes to be alone but still has great loyalty to his friends.
I find him kinda relatable.
