Person First or Identity First Language

Some people in the Autism and Disabilties community are thinking that a change in wording would better represent their feelings and help reduce stigma. We are seeking your opinion about this. Would you prefer the wording “An Aspergian/Autistic person OR A person with Asperger’s/ Autism”. For furthur information about this issue here are some links to read: person first language and identity first language.
