I do get the impression that some like what are seen as the 'positive ' parts of being an autistic person enough to want the dx, but are vehemently against any suggestion they're disabled.
I'm not in that category. I have absolutely no doubt that I'm disabled. I' m not this high achieving autistic superperson. Not because I'm totally stupid. High range IQ test scores show that that isn't true. However there is a significant adaptive functioning < IQ gap.
