Person first language V Identity first language
Description of person first language
Person-first language puts the word “person” before the disability-related word in a phrase. People who use person-first language believe that this emphasizes that disabled people are people rather than a label.
Description of Identity first language
Identity-first language places the disability-related word first in a phrase. People who prefer identity-first language for themselves often argue that their disability is an important part of who they are, or that they wouldn’t be the same person without their disability. For some people, identity-first language is about a shared community, culture, and identity. Identity-first language is also about thinking about disability as a type of diversity instead of something to be ashamed of.

Personally I prefer people first, as I am more than the sum of my parts if people just look at all my Labels then they are going to miss who I am really.
But Some people like Identity-first language.
Which one do you prefer.
