Ashbie Moon, also known as Aspie Girl or Aspie Chan, refers to a neurodivergent, introverted female character that popularized on 4chan and then wider social media in the early 2020s. In memes and comics, Ashbie is shown to struggle with social anxiety, have an insecurity with her autism, deal with autism-related issues, do daily mundane things and go on VR adventures. Many crossover edits would frequently show Ashbie with a tbh creature plushie. Ashbie's character design has changed and evolved over time, with her receiving two additional glow-up designs. Ashbie's prototype character design was based on Derpina, and later became a variation of Pink-Haired Enbie.
The prototype of Ashbie's design first appeared both on December 24th, 2020 in a thread on the /qa/ board and on Know Your Meme by the Know Your Meme user "OG Ashbie Account" around the same time, which is the original account of @ashbie.and.friends and her creator. This prototype was a variant of the Pink-Haired Enbie" meme from this time period, celebrating neurodiversity.
This particular variant became quite popular and was frequently reposted on 4chan over the next two months. The prototype of Ashbie's design was based on Derpina and its head was generated via LGBT Friendly Icon Creator by finndraws, the same program that Pink-Haired Enbie was generated with. This version of Ashbie had a newly drawn body with Derpina's hair color and wore a green turtleneck sweater with pigtails and a black bow like Derpina.
Although Ashbie started off as a branch of the Pink-Haired Enbie meme, she would eventually evolve into her own character. On February 28th, 2021, Ashbie's design changed from its original form, and various edits were produced with Apu Apustaja. In this era, Ashbie wore a blue t-shirt that reads "Autism is my Superpower." On September 26th, her creator started drawing her with shirt logos not associated with Autism Speaks. She has also been depicted wearing a Please be patient I have autism hat.
On November 27, 2021, Ashbie was given a glow-up design by her creator which gave her blue Converse shoes, an alternate crescent moon shirt, and newer shirt logos not associated with Autism Speaks, complete with the rainbow infinity sign (neurodiversity logo). She was also depicted with a new hairstyle and hair clips, with Hello Kitty being the most common of Ashbie's hair clips.
On December 6th, 2021, @ashbiemoon uploaded several images detailing the evolution of Ashbie as a character. This would be the first of a few design revisions. Her creator frequently posts Ashbie content on Instagram, YouTube, Twitter, Reddit, and Facebook and goes by the username @ashbiemoon on all other social media sites.

Ashbie and Autism Acceptance
Anecdotal sentiment from the ASD community is generally favorable toward Ashbie, with some members of /r/aspergirls/ writing that it makes them feel "seen" and is the best character to come out of 4chan in some time. Many fans, especially those with autism, also express how relatable Ashbie is and how she is depicted better than many autistic characters in the media.
Over the course of multiple years, Ashbie developed lore and a webcomic-like relationship with other meme characters, including a best friend named Ellie (an alternate Doomer Girl Wojak variation) and a boyfriend named Aidan (an Apu Apustaja's VR avatar which is a parody of The Frog Prince). She also has a hard-of-hearing friend named Heidi, a mom named Nina, a big brother named Ashton and a little sister named Ashlie. Ashbie's father Ha-Ru is deceased. Ashbie also has a Hispanic family member named Luna Martinez.
