I knew she had this condition but decided not to highlight it because as far as this thread goes its irellivent and this is pretty much tongue in cheek, Also her condition has not stopped her in her quest and that can only be a good advert to say it shouldn't hold you back. But she could end up being manipulated by people who have their own agendas, I hope her parents keep a close eye on those around her while she's in the public eye

It could go either way DB9. It depends on how high functioning her autism is. Many people with autism are too trusting and frequently get taken advantage of whilst at the other end of the spectrum many trust nobody and are suspicious of the motives of everybody, even their own parents, doctors etc so with this subgroup even at 16 years of age it could be quite difficult trying to influence and manipulate. This subgroup are not easily influenced by anything or anyone and is the reason why advertising is a total waste of time amongst many higher functioning autistic people. Because they just see something for what it is.

The issue is the same though whether someone is autistic or not. If you regularly put yourself out there on a pedestal then you are there to be shot at. Figuratively speaking of course. Sooner rather than later i think that Greta will find the majority of people aren't prepared to radically change their lifestyles in order to save the planet and governments of countries aren't going to take radical actions to do likewise and this she may find alienating, frustrating and fundamentally and profoundly unbearable to accept. This is when her parents will be needed most i think.
