  1. As an #ActuallyAutistic someone who lost someone close (who was also autistic as it happens) to suicide, “commit… suicide” in any context is actually really upsetting.

    I know you were going for a showcase of autistic humour, but this hurt. I thought you should know. Thank you.

    1. I thought it was hilarious, and I also think suicide is hilarious (if you do it right) and I don’t think authors should be publicly reprimanded for saying words just because someone who had an unpleasant life-event wants to take everything personally and make everything about themselves. If the word “suicide ” upsets you, you have the choice to scroll past it; choosing click on it for the specific purpose of shaming the author for simply using a silly slang-term (“social suicide”) is unbelieveably selfish, imo. Just thought you should know. Thank you.

      1. I sorta think it wasn’t the word suicide, it was the phrase “COMMIT suicide”, as if it were a deliberate crime and not, you know, a tragedy the person has been a victim of, or a desperate escape from the unbearable tragedy that life was for them.
        And, yeah, when used in the literal sense, the phrase bothers me too, and I haven’t even experienced anyone around me die by suicide.
        Sowocki is right. One doesn’t COMMIT suicide.
