    SamW commented on Ben Affleck Has Given The World An Autistic Action Hero

    SamW commented on Ben Affleck Has Given The World An Autistic Action Hero

    The autistic community, by and large, however, wants to be called autistic. And I'm sorry, but the majority goes in this case, as many of us have had to deal with being dehumanised by person-first language. (Because if we did not have autism, we'd be "normal". If we weren't autistic…

    So... Were any actually autistic people even involved in this project, or is it another case of "this guy is really good at what he does because autism"? I'm getting pretty sick of this trope, and getting pretty sick in general of allistic people making projects about us without involving…

    God no. She doesn't even look anything like Doreen! Cast somebody with a chubby face and thick thighs as Doreen, somebody who is actually funny and invested in comics. (Cast me as Doreen, as I tick all these boxes, look cute, and look young enough to play early 20s.)
