Mitchel Timme has autism but is a great brother and man because of it.
Spencer Timme made this video to show how amazing it is to have an older brother with autism. The pair sing in the car, goof around, hang out at the beach—Mitchel’s autism has not prevented him from being an awesome older brother.
These two men share a really fantastic relationship, and though Spencer may play the “older brother” role, they are clearly equals in a lot of ways. They are two men who unashamedly love Disney movies and don’t mind letting the world know that it’s alright for men to play and show affection. The two aren’t just a touching example of how having an autistic family member can be a good thing, but they are an example to men of all capacities that having a soft side is not a weakness but a strength.
