I don't get it

Is being shy is now considered the same as autism?

Is Autism the new ADD or OCD? Because, at least online, it seems almost trendy to claim some sort of illness. "lol guyz I'm liek so ocd I put my DVDs in alphabetical order!!1" Stuff like that.

I don't know enough about Daryl Hannah or Autism to make any sort of judgement call, but generally speaking, people seem to be very quick to jump on the Autism bandwagon these days and treat it as if it were some sort of "get out of social awkwardness free" card.
