something i feel i should just make a quickish post on for people is if you can, avoid help, or avoid helping any autism charities and what not with a puzzle piece, such as autism speaks which is unfortunately very popular. they use the puzzle piece as a way to show theyre a part of an unfinished puzzle, and most of them believe autism is like a mental illness that needs cured, or fixed, or that people with autism need put together by them, meaning theyre made up of alot of people who, have exceptions to how much they want to help people with autism, and tend to villanize, and treat people with autism like dumb children, though not all of the people in the groups may be like that, more of them than youd think are, be careful

      Neurodivergent/diverse are actually older (1998) terms than the current ASD terms put in place on 2013! It's outlived quite a few terms for several conditions that it pertains to, so clearly it's a good term :3

      Thank you!! The amount of times I've had to explain this to people is crazy. Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe the new symbol people who are aware of this are trying to move to is a infinity symbol. The most common of which I see is a rainbow or gold infinity symbol.

        @Brinnon Yep. The infinity symbol and red instead are both generally accepted by the autistic community!
