The tiers should really be renamed because they make no sense

You're implying that they might have autism.

It's the same reason why calling some mentally deficient (you know the word I'm thinking of) is offensive.

Implying because they show a very prominent trait of it? And no, it's very much different. What you are thinking of is typically done using a word that many people consider to be offensive. I am personally bothered by the fact that you think "autistic" is a dirty word, and the fact that so many people think that anyone with it must be handled with the gentlest of kid gloves. It borders on condescending.
