She has, not she is

A rant?  Perhaps.

She isn’t autistic. 

She is girl.  She has brown hair and green eyes.  She likes to color and to do word searches.  She loves her dogs.  She doesn’t hug me but I know that I am her rock.  She loves loud music but hates to hear the sound of someone breathing. She loves ice cream and anything chocolate.  She wants to have friends.  She is 17.

She is a human being.  She happens to also have autism.  Human first, disability second.
