A question?

Does she have Autism?
Or is she Autistic?
Is she still my girl?
Or is she just a statistic?

Do I say she’s on the spectrum?
Or say she has ASD?
Are any of them offensive?
Should I ask my girl what she wants to be?

She is a person with Autism,
She is also on the spectrum,
She is diagnosed Autistic,
All these point in the same direction.

I don’t find any of them offensive,
But I know the debate is enormous,
As long as we are mentioning Autism,
We are also raising awareness.
