How does it effect you in any way? It is still a usable and legitimate term, it is just lumped together in Autism Spectrum Disorder.

We all know this. However, aspergers is not a diagnosis anymore.

No, it's not lumped together. It's DELETED. It's not in the DSM 5

I personally think this is a big mistake.  While they are all on the same scale there are such extremes that the  differentiation really helped

Using the R word in an autism post? How tasteless.
