When you have Aspergers you are not stupid! People with autism have certain specific interests like art, history, or maths. When you're Autistic you are unaware of people laughing at you. Austistics wear things only for comfort, even if it doesn't match. A person might not wear contrasting patterns, but if they have autism they wouldn't care as long as it's comfy. They don't care how they look. This doesn't make them thick headed because even though their emotional age might be 5, their intellectual age may well be higher.

Another type of Autism found in the Autism spectrum is Rett Syndrome. This has been found mostly in the females, however some males have it. You can tell you have this if you have small hands or feet, or if your head is small for your age (the rate it grows slows down). It may also look like anxiety with the way they move their hands. There is no cure for this, however there are treatments. Treatments involve anti-psychotics (to contain any self-harm), therapy, changing up your social medication, and increase your communication skills.
