Demiromantic/demisexual and autistic here: never once seen an autistic person use “a-spec” to refer to autism. It’s only ever been used by aro/ace people (and of course hateful idiots to discredit us)
Thank you! Yeah they’re idiots. It’s a pretty common technique to try and use one minority against another and you can be sure every time that those people truly don’t care about the minority they’re using any more than about the one they’re attacking.
