My answer would be people can be Autistic and also be assholes. “But i’m Autistic” is frankly a non sequitur to criticism. If someone is sexist or racist or disrespectful, them being Autistic doesn’t change that their behavior was wrong. No Autistic person should use that as an excuse. Doesn’t make them any less Autistic, just makes them an asshole.
