I’m not “an Autistic.”

People with Autism are just that, people. We are not a disorder, a tragedy, a disease, or something other than human. We are people. I am a woman who happens to be on the spectrum. NT’s would not call somebody with cancer “a cancer.” Referring to someone as an “Autistic is just as hurtful as racism. If not more. We do have feelings. Think before you speak
