Well yeah, a neurotypical person telling an autistic person how to refer to another autistic person on behalf of their child who has a completely unrelated condition is peak gatekeeping. But it's not what this thread is about and we are risking a rather messy derail.Offensive to whom? You're not even commenting from the family of such a person! What ill intent is implied or inferred by this apparently horrendous 5-letter term.
The person I have had most discussions with about Aspergers cheerfully refers to herself - and others - as Aspy. These are just words; like you can call me Matty if you want x. Or bikey.
Jeez, this thread escalated quickly ...
