as an autistic person, how do you feel about being labeled with the term(s) disabled, differently abled, etc.?

      I don't mind being called disabled but only disabled. Disabled isn't a bad word and being called "differently abled" or "handi-capable" really downplays my struggles as a disabled person. I also have physical disabilities so I suppose that also makes me more open to being called disabled.

        @royalty I honestly at this point in life haven't thought about being called disabled because I have fought tooth and nail to be here now.
