a lot of people put "autistic person overexplains something" in the same bucket as mansplaining because they don't really care to differentiate and it's amazingly efficient at being both ableist and triple shitty to autistic trans women

feels like this is by far the most common release valve for leftists to be acceptably bigoted tbh

not to mention trans women really get a lot of "if you're autistic, you aren't *really* a woman" medical gatekeeping going in and people casually acting like autism makes you male really twists the knife on that one

on the plus side trans women are all really used to people power sliding in and deciding whether we're male or not by their own irritating arbitrary bullshit standards so at least it's not new
