I Do Not Have Autism. I Am Autistic. This Should NOT Be a Problem for ANYONE

There is a sentence that the author uses in their post that pretty much says it all for me. I follow her lead.

“My position on Autistic “vs.” “has autism/person first” is that it is UP TO THE PERSON who has the disability to name themselves. When a person has a clear preference, other people should respect it.”
