I'm in the very early stages of starting a nonprofit too and looking forward to reading more about your experience!
I'm surprised that you care about harms to autistic people but not to bad leaders. Are people born to be bad leaders somehow more deserving of that?
Thanks and apologies for the confusion created.
Contrary to your insinuation, I never wrote that I don't understand the difference between those two. I was pointing out that Brian's argument applies to both "(autism)" and "terrible leaders".
I believe I'm right and I do not believe in giving in to the mob.
How is this relevant?......
I'm not trying to troll, sorry if it seems this way. I really don't understand why you have a problem with "(autistic)" but don't have a problem with a "terrible leader". This seems inconsistent to me. As far as I can see all of your arguments apply to both of these. My title still seems justified to me.
I don't have a problem admitting a mistake and in fact in the past I have changed the title of the post based on people telling me that it wasn't justified: https://old.reddit.com/r/slatestarcodex/comments/gn55rx/ignore_any_paper_based_on_selfreported_data/fvcfskr/
I don't understand you. Brian writes: "there's still something wrong with hinting that people are "(autistic)", when they aren't diagnosed with it, or don't want to be known as that"
I wrote that the people I wrote about in the post used to be "terrible leaders". I would guess that they don't want to be known as terrible leaders, thus satisfying one of Brian's conditions. Thus, I conclude that Brian and you want me to remove that part of my post as well.
I assume you also have a problem with me writing that they were all terrible leaders and terrible at running a company then?
I believe your point would've been valid had I claimed that they were formally diagnosed with autism. I'm not aware of any of them being diagnosed, which is why the title says "(autistic)" in parentheses, indicating that I'm not making such a claim about people I discuss in the post, but rather my impression that they exhibited a host of traits typically associated with autism/asperger's.
