Is calling someone "crazy" demeaning to individuals with mental illness?
Sure but I don't care.
No need to be such PC.
Not if they are crazy. Some people need help.
I have OCD & ADD. I'm medicated & regularly see a doctor. Aside from those things, I am "crazy". My personality is a bit eccentric. My teens call me crazy & I don't get offended.
It used to have a connotation that was directly associated with mental illness. Nowadays, it just means something is ridiculous. Social justice warriors don't understand the concept of language evolving. Or geometry, but that's another story.
No, you're crazy
Dkdc, PC 🐂💩
You'd have to be nuts to vote "yes"!
No, it's just a colloquialism. I'm gay, I don't get offended when people call something undesirable gay. Either because I understand how language works, or I'm just incredibly desensitized. (Probably the former)
Crazy can mean a lot of things. You can call someone crazy for a little a large act. A example for a small act is lying to someone. A large act is a crime such as murder or injuring someone.
I suppose it could be.
I'm surprised liberals have t branded it hate speech yet
Oh , but they have! There are a few colleges out there who have banned the term "crazy" because it's "offensive" to those suffering from mental illness. In stead of "crazy," you're supposed to say "ableist slur." For example: "Man, you're freakin' ableist slur!!"
Smith College in MA was the first college to provide a new "dictionary" of acceptable words to its incoming freshWOMYN class. Now, the University of New Hampshire, all CA state schools , UMass , & Dartmouth are a few schools that come to mind that also provide the incoming freshman with a "PC dictionary."
I call my autistic son crazy all the time. 'C'mere, you crazy boy!' . Doesn't seem offended in the least. It's all in how it's said.
Crazy doesn't have a negative connotation. And, people with mental illness are more accepted in society.
Liberals would say yes though lol
But, the majority didn't.
Kirilyn, you can't use emperical data and statistics to prove a point to a neo-con.
I have a OCD, my girlfriend calls me crazy all the time but it doesn't affect me lol
I'm diagnosed with OCD btw, so I'm not one of those "I'm a little OCD" b***es lol
Yep...mental illness is going to be the new offensive thing liberals can cry about now. Soon we will be emptying out the prisons onto our streets.
Stop with all of these stupid PC euphemisms. If someone acts absurd and unreasonable, it is perfectly fine to call them "crazy". We should search for treatments rather than accommodate someone's illness and accept it as normal behavior.
Only PC libtards would say yes.
We don't call people with mental illness crazy.
That'd be crazy
I call them skittzies....
I just made a libtard cry.
I don't think so, but I know people who think so...😏🙄😜
If anything, asking this question is degrading for people with mental illness. Just because you have a mental illness that doesn't make you crazy, and trust me there are plenty of crazy people without a mental illness
The level this PC thing has gotten to us so retarded.
This isn't a sentence.
Guess it hit him harder than everyone else.
*is autocorrect, geez ;)
Ohhhh sorry. I seriously read that about five times and could not figure out what you meant.
If the "Crazy Hat" fits own it !🕵🏼
It’s not like they could tell lol
It's been going on for years. What's with this generation and being ultra PC and not wanting to "offend anyone"? That's how you lose a country. You vote for the most PC candidate and the smarter one falls to the wayside.
My sis in law has Down syndrome and we call her crazy all the time. She's a goof!
No. Esp if they r!!
Do you guys complaining about "SJW's" seriously not notice that NOBODY is arguing with you? There's so much energy being spent here railing against imaginary statements that no one has made.
Says the SJW who's just butt hurt their argument isn't going to be entertained?
You will find all the SJWs in their safe space (aka tumblr). This app is a more right leaning community anyway
Lmao, I voted "no". Look up and it's more of the same... But keep patting yourselves on the back for winning a nonexistent argument.
Stop trying to make SOH like Reddit, We're not.
These questions are starting to get dumb.
Crazy SJWs, man up.
Social justice warriors hopping on the yes train.
No I'm not
Nor is calling someone "retarded."
Re - tardo, tardare - it's all just Latin.
Depends. Do they actually have some mental illness?
You don't call someone with a mental illness "crazy." Why would anyone do that?
I dunno, that's crazy
If they were acting crazy I would.
Jesus Christ, this PC bullshit has gone way too far
Just like calling a male and not or any of the 58 gender types listed by ABC news is insulting to SJW's. Here is the list -talk about CRAZY.
Female to Male
Male to Female
Notice no mention of Male or FEMALE only on the list.
Talk about CRAZY.
SJW'S rejoice - the gender cops are on the case.
I though you were limited to 20 lines of text...
Male and female are on the list. That's what the "cis" prefix means.
What is Cis and Cisgender mean then? No preference? No clue? Confused? Half and half?
SJW'S rejoice but get ready ti retreat to your safe space as I feel a micro aggression coming on....
This 58 gender stuff is CRAZY CRAZY CRAZY and anyone that believes it is crazy too.
Come on out now SJW snowflakes, the micro aggression is over.
There's no micro aggression. You didn't see "male" and "female." I said they were there. Cisgender just means like you're not transgender or transsexual.
I find it highly offensive I have to be cis-male, instead of just male. ARGH MY head might blow off .... sarcasm
Cismale means I am not trans gender? Why do I need a qualifier before male? Who in their right mind would ever think these categories help these people with mental health issues? It only perpetuates their illness and yes -it is considered a mental health issue by the vast majority of experts in the field. You do not mutilate yourself without it being a mental health issue. Not sexuality-not who you are attracted to, not being gay but by pretending to be something you physically are not and saying you feel traped in a different body and want to have surgery is definitely a mental health issue.
Just like someone thought they were a bear trapped in a human body or a vampire or a gargoyle.
Crazy is as crazy does.
All this stuff is pure poppy-cok. When did male female become not enough. You only can b born two ways. With an XX or XY chromosome. Only 2
You don't *need* the qualifier before male, just like trans men don't need the qualifier for them to be called men. But it can be useful in this context in order to clarify between a cismale and a trans male.
Actually I know a guy with two X chromosomes one Y.
Then u r not, by definition, male.
The guy I know identifies as intersex. I was just responding to your claim about everyone having one X and one Y, or having two Xs.
I have to Google some of these. I am retarded lol
What the heck is Intersex? Can I make up a gender and identify by it?
I now identify as a unicorn. It means male but not currently having a sex change surgery, hormone therapy or other therapy. But I do feel I am unicorn so please address me as nacho-unicorn.
Thanks for respecting my safe space.
I just explained what intersex is. The guy I know has two X chromosomes and one Y chromosome.
By accepting the definitions you are qualifying and enabling. Nothing more and nothing less.
I am a unicorn -can you support that?
There's nothing wrong with being tolerant of people who are different. I do not respect you being a unicorn because it's complete bullshit and you're just trying to disrespect a legitimate social movement.
Nacho. U rock. I identify as a platypus. U better call me as such or i will get ACLU and sue
You didn't take biology did you? XXY chromosomes is not "intersex" it's called Klinefelter syndrome, which is a serious medical condition.
You are making things up not being "tolerant"
Well, he calls himself intersex.
Well he should go to a doctor and get himself tested because it has been correlated to lower life expectancy and depending on age/estrogen/testosterone levels can cause some serious problems.
Sitting back and letting someone think they are "intersexual" and do nothing about it because you want to be "tolerant" can literally cost your friend his life.
Facts > feelings.
So he can call himself intersex but I can't call myself a unicorn. What's the difference - neither are listed in any medical texts or anywhere but progressive SJW lists as a gender.
Perhaps the progressive legitimate social movement has not caught up to my progressiveness yet. Who are you to judge?
Maybe one day unicorn will be accepted as a gender and you do not respect me and cause me pain by telling me any different.
How is that not the same argument for 58 genders?
It's demeaning to white teenager SJWs who like controlling speech. They are CRAZY
Someone with mild depression is crazy?
Is that what's afflicting SJWs? Mild depression?
I don't think so, for the simple reason that the word "crazy" is (in this case specifically) an accurate descriptor, not a professional diagnosis.
As someone with mental illness, it's not
No. That's retarded
Usually no, if used casually and jokingly
No, because 99% of the time, that's not the intent. Just like "retarded" or "gay". I'd say it's kind of rude when you're using it specifically to insult someone who does have a mental illness. That's kind of like yelling "you're retarded!" at a retarded person. It's unnecessary and obviously meant to hurt someone for something out of their control. But again, 99% of the time, that's not how people are using it, so I don't see a problem with it.
I am :)
For the sake of all holy sensitivities, BAN THIS IMMEDIATELY!:
The one & only Miss Patsy Cline! 😍
Yes; if they have a mental disorder, they are ill and need help. If a person does not have a mental disorder but does stupid shhhhuff, that is crazy! Haha!
Haha no. That's a silly notion.
