I’m autistic, and my mom outs me against my will to anyone she has known for more than 5 minutes. How do I get her to stop?

Unfortunately, I can’t think of any way to get her to stop that seems likely to work. I’m posting this in hopes that someone else has ideas.
Have any of y’all succeeded at getting a parent to stop outing you?

My mother only stopped when I became an adult, no matter how much I begged her to stop when I was a child.  She forever believed she was justified and in the right, and would not have changed the past if she could have.

This is a major part of why I spent the majority of my adulthood thus far saying, “I don’t believe in labels.”

Medical abuse and outing being too much of a social risk was the entirety of it.

Sometimes the people who say they don’t believe in labels are saying it and trying to convince you of it for survival.
