I know that we talk about how Abed much watch Sherlock, and how exciting that is, but can be also bring to point that Abed is one of the BEST and most Accurate portrays of a social disorder.

He is just living his life, and though his aspergers affects his life, its not his defining factor. 

And in this scene he is not only upset at being told “oh, you’re autistic? You’re rainman, right?” but he’s also using the opportunity to express frustration with how his disorder is used as a “procedural device” like its a superpower. And it’s not. He’s a person struggling with a disorder and is tired of seeing it trivialized and glorified in the thing he loves the best: tv.

/\THIS IS WHY COMMUNITY WAS IMPORTANT /\

God, I already miss it.
