Read This Before You Ever Make Fun of Comic Sans Again
Asking her to change her font is asking her to take a task that is already very difficult for someone with dyslexia and demanding that she take extra steps to please the aesthetic preferences of someone for whom reading is easy.

“If you work with someone with dyslexia, maybe even if you don’t know if they’re dyslexic, if something is laid out well, if someone has gone through the time to carefully format something, please accept it in whatever color, whatever font people want to use. You never really know what is helping someone. If it’s not hurting you, then just leave it alone.”

People without dyslexia need empathy for those who need concessions to manage the disability. “You have to think about how massive this issue is for me, and you have to think about how tiny the issue is for you.”

In summary, she says: "Get the fuck over yourself."

Tobias Frere-Jones: In Letters We Trust - AIGA/NY []
However, Jacob Lew’s signature, the US Secretary of the Treasury, recently caused a terrible rupture with the public who described him as lazy and careless. Even President Obama admitted that after seeing his signature, he doubted whether to hire him, saying, “I had never noticed Jack’s signature, and when it was highlighted in the press, I considered rescinding my offer to him. Jack assures me he is going to make at least one letter legible, in order not to debase our currency, should he be confirmed as secretary of state.” Lew’s signature quickly changed and he was eventually appointed.

"Debase our currency." Ha.
Benjamin Franklin was one of the best typographers of his time. A son of a printer, he was the most precise and a detail-oriented typesetter. Frere-Jones describes his note as a minefield—designed to exhaust even the most experience forgerer. There were many different, and at times laughable, typographic techniques that were used to create dollars impossible to forge.
