I'm noticing a lot of the examples are about characters who are either Ambiguously Autistic or something of a Bunny-Ears Lawyer. Should we limit the examples to characters who are confirmed as having some sort of disorder? Or maybe a middle ground, a character who seems, but is not confirmed to have, a disorder may be allowed to stay on the list. If the examples were meant to have a loose criteria than that's fine, but right now I don't feel like they all match the description.
