Terms like “bipolar”, “autistic” and “schizophrenic” are often used in jest to describe character traits. But how harmful is it to bandy the names of such conditions about?
Thanks to eller-hur for the heads up!
I feel you need to remind fandom how the misuse of mental health terms is bad. I get so sick to my stomach over people making characters “bipolar” for “lol insane weird stories!!!11!!!” Please stop that guys.
I wholeheartedly agree. Psychological OCD is not what people believe obsessions are. The term “obsession” is so misused.
