question for other autistic folk 

Does anyone have a term for "special interest" that maybe feels less... demeaning? While also still conveying that they are special?

Or perhaps this is an internalization of "special" as a bad thing and the term is worth reclaiming? I dunno I'm conflicted on the whole thing.

@hoppet I don't like the term "special interest" either. It... yeah, feels demeaning.

@hoppet Personally I like the "my jam" or "way into" suggestions. :3
