In this episode, I talk about the language of autism. The existence of an Autistic Lexicon helps establish Autism as a cultural identity. I discuss terms such as Changeling, Asperger's, Aspie, Autist etc. This includes a breakdown of why Hans Asperger sucked. I also talk about the social model of disability versus the medical model.
