An offensive term used by arrogant twats to dehumanise an individual diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. Those who use the term are usually middle to upper class, have minimal to no understanding of how autism affects the person and probably don't have any loved ones affected by it.
I vehemently disagree with discrimination towards anyone including those with autism and absolutely despise people who use the term autist.

As a slang term, an autist is someone who is severely socially inept due to a lack of exposure to people and social situations.

On the internet and in casual usage, an autist is usually not intended to mean someone who was born with autism. Rather, the term is used to indicate someone who is just "bad with people" -- not due to a medical condition, but primarily due to spending too much pursuing anti-social activities (i.e. too much time on the computer).

Autist is synonymous with terms such as nerd, dork, dweeb, etc.
Bronies, conspiracy theorists, robots, and fundamentalists are all autists.
