Honestly, people who use autism are not using it to specifically and personally attack autistic people. They're most likely using the term because it has become a popular word to use, even if the context it's used in is incorrect. It's the same thing with the words "gay" and "retarded"; they aren't being used to harm these groups of people, the words have just become associated with something else entirely. I think it's a bit ridiculous when people get angry over a misuse of words, simply because words are words and should not have so much charge to them. That's my own opinion, however.
