I hate to be "that guy", but just today I've come across multiple posts on VGC using the term "autistic screeching" to mock a company/person's position or behaviour.
Just thought a reminder was in order that it's kinda a bit rude to VGC's multiple autistic members. Autistics are people too, and nobody likes to be demeaned.
VGC is generally a lovely and welcoming forum, so let's all do our bit to keep it that way.
Thanks for your consideration, and remember to...
What are you autistic?(jk)
Seriously though calling someone autistic is less derogatory and more an expression used to sum up a lot of things into one word just like fag. It isn't intended to be derogatory to actual autistic people nor is fag to gays. It's just the same word used to sum up a lot of different things except actual autism. Of course no one is actually calling someone autistic as in with the disease autism in a derogatory way. O just think being too sensitive about these things for others is not helpful. I'm sure many people with the disease don't mind the humour as well while others with the disease might. Stop being offended for other people and let them speak for themselves instead. And learn to have a sense of humour
Just a guy who doesn't want to be bored. Also
