You make a really compelling case explaining why telling someone to smile and how it's not that simple for people on the autism spectrum. Don't get me wrong I understand the reasoning behind smiling but sometimes it can be irritating when a person keeps tell you to fake a smile. Are there situations where you feel like you feel pressured to smile because everyone else is doing it?
