Identity and hypocrisy

Identity and Hypocrisy: a second argument against person-first language, by Lydia Brown (Autistic Hoya blog). Good description of the multiple cultural, religious, gender descriptors we use- as markers of our identity, but not our sole identity. Just as none of them is inherently good or bad, neither is Autistic. “An identity is not something that I have. It is who I am.”
