This is such a fantastic post that it’s not even funny. (Except that it’s so much even-cooler than, that I’m grinning again.) 😉
I agree with every. Single. Word.
I, too, would like to see autism be stricken from the DSM, as autism is not in itself a mental disorder. As the lovely Aspie Under Your Radar says, it’s not likely to happen anytime soon, although “homosexuality” was indeed stricken, after it, too, was recognized not to be a mental illness. (Thank god(dess)!)
Anyway, I love how this post advocates the reframing of pathological language into proactive positives and down-to-earth matter-of-factness. The whole post is awesome, and if you’re not following this blog already, I definitely recommend doing so! Lots of good information on here, regular posts, all well-written! 🙂
