"Autistic" or "Person with Autism"?

Although my original, official diagnosis was 'Aspergers Syndrome', I am an autistic person.
I believe it was in use as a diagnosis up to about 10 years ago, when they removed it from the DSM-5 and replaced it with ASD1, but those diagnosed with it still retain that diagnosis (unless re-assessed more recently).
Utilitarianism trumps idealism
Or as Tom Lehrer sang it...

🎼Gather 'round while I sing you of Wernher von Braun
A man whose allegiance
Is ruled by expedience
Call him a Nazi, he won't even frown
"Ha, Nazi, Schmazi" says Wernher von Braun 🎶
