Definitely giving that last one to my gf this year.
But it isn’t anymore. The APA has now defined Asperger’s as simply being on the spectrum of Autism. There is no separate diagnosis. The media hasaresponsibility to use the correct terms for these things, and as of now, that would be the correct term.
As an Aspie myself,Ivehemently disagree with you in just about everything you said.
Ido find it annoying that Asperger’s is now just part of the spectrum, because it does differ in some ways. However, journalists must report using facts, and the facts are that Asperger’s is justaform of autism now. That is how the APA has decided it will be, and the media should report it as such.
