If Aspergers should be renamed why not call it:
After Lorna Winger?
If Aspergers should be renamed
... Um... HFA (High Functioning Autism)... which is what it is anyway...?
Nooo! Not the F word. Is it a noun or a verb? Someone can appear typical in some respects at some times in some places, but not others. It says more about the support that's given. If people who mask 'have HFA' why is their mental health worse than people who are 'low-functioning'. Can HFA mean 'doesn't need support', and LFA mean 'incapable of anything'? Can it be misinterpreted to mean 'genius'? (And then HFA may include lower IQ or language delay that's excluded from Asperger.)
You say autism, I say autism, let's call the whole thing off.
