I am tired to death of hearing mental illness diagnoses used as pejoratives.
I am tired to death of hearing technical medical terms that apply to me and my friends hurled as insults at political figures, used to describe weather conditions, and employed as self-deprecating comments in the context of life's little challenges.
I am especially tired to death of hearing this language in the postings of Facebook friends and in the pulpit from educated people who should know better.
Especially after I have called them on it over and over and over.
So you can imagine that my eyes perked up at a thread that addresses this issue, posted on Twitter by somebody who goes by the handle @queerfox.
