One comment on “How do you think it makes me feel?

  1. Something I wrote which you may find useful:

    Things I Do Not Do.

    I do not suffer from Autism; my suffering is caused by a lack of acceptance and the malice of others.

    I do not experience Autism; it’s not Alton Towers or anything.

    I do not live with Autism; it is my neurology, not my longterm partner.

    I do not have Autism; it is not a removable component with its own specially shaped slot.

    Now do you get why the vast majority of Autistic people prefer identity-first language?

    And I agree with your assertion that person-first language puts the person last, especially with the way we commonly use language. In fact, I independently arrived at the same conclusion a couple of months ago.

Chuck shit at me here
