“Neurotypical” A Word Misused & Inaccurate?
There is no such thing as “neurotypical” in terms of a collective definition of people, viewpoints or principles.
It’s a word I never use as it seems to adorned a slur like status in projection. Bigotry is as such is not only based on stereotypes but I feel hinders more balanced narratives and objective dialogues and information sharing.
We Live In A Human World First Identities Come Second
This isn’t a “neurotypical” world either it is world full of different and sometimes conflicting ideas, notions and perceptions of “other” which then lead in extreme cases to towards conflicts in bias.
Autism Militant Projection & Distorted Narratives
Militant narratives burns more bridges than it claims to build, by having a narrow lense of how someone who isn’t on the autism spectrum acts, thinks, feels etc.
How does this build a platform for idea sharing, life sharing and forming healthy agreement and disagreement?
Non- Autistic Realities & Autistic Realities – All Human Beings Are Walking “Fruit Salads“
There are different forms of non-autistic realities and some parts of those realities may be relatable to an “AUT-istic” experience such someone whom has faceblindness, object blindness or language processing disorder. In other words there are multi- faceted realities of being “non-autistic“.
For the AUT-ism is not a collective reality either, not everything is sensory, not everything is language processing, not everything is dyspraxia etc.
For these are potential facets of an AUT-istic experience but are separate and identifiable pieces in their own right, that can exist on their own terms and have different presentations.
The Problem With Identity- First Narrative
That is why Identity-First language is misleading because what “parts” one is choosing to relate may not be the “autism” (in their “fruit salads) anyway.
