Opinion: Ignorant Is Just a Word

Once upon a time, back when I first began working with other people's autistic children, I found myself in a family's living room surrounded by people hungry for advice.
It was the moment I excel at: Q & A. When it comes to autism, I just get it. The kids make sense to me so I find creating ways to help them reach desired goals relatively easy.
Someone said something about a neighbor being judgmental. I responded with, "They are just ignorant! It is up to us to teach them. They simply don't know." I was of course using the word as it was originally intended, before society recreated it and made it into slang.
