ginny_t: Give me rampant intellectualism as a coping mechanism. (rampant intellectualism)
Tomorrow is Blogging Against Disablism Day. For its eve, I submit a short roundup of uses of "crazy", "insane", and "lunacy" as code. Crazy doesn't mean "incomprehensible and illogical". It is not an intensifier. It doesn't even mean "violently dangerous". It is an indication of a psychiatric diagnosis, and it should be used with care--very great care.

The percentage of violent crimes committed by people with a psychiatric diagnosis is in the single digits. A person with a psychiatric diagnosis is far more vulnerable to violent crime than a neurotypical person.
