As an autistic person, the ones on how to go on a date as an autistic person were helpful. But it's the way it was worded,, as an autistic person myself, we normally all use 'autistic person' to describe ourselves, and some of the blog posts using 'person with autism' really caught me off guard.
Once again, it helped me alot, I just didn't like how it was worded.

Hi Crowley-Phoenix,

I'm glad those articles were helpful! The author is himself autistic, so we defer to him on what language to use in the piece. I think this may be one of those instances where there's a difference in preferred terminology between two folks from the same group, if that makes sense.
