Full Snowflake Article
The world is a fragile place. The intricacies of our language are under attack. We must think about what we say, and how we say it at all times.
Anything you say can instantly place someone in the fetal position, balled up in an instantly induced triggering. If you are ever in this situation,
please just slowly back away and allow the victim to decompress, allow them some time in a "safe space." Words hurt, and sometimes the words hurt
sooo much, that we need to re-evaluate the language we use. We all know that the "n" word is offensive and racist. We all know that the "F" word
is offensive and rude. Now, we need to look at the "C" word in a different light. To put it in a BLUNT manner, it isn't that "C" word.

This word, is CRAZY.
In the feminist-crazy-talk-social-justice-warrior-haven-blog "theestablishment", a wonderful article with the intent of policing typical western
slang words discusses the nuanced word "crazy." This word can be used in many interchangeable situations, and can take on many meanings. But, if you
happen to be a stark raving mad feminist, this word, (AND I QUOTE)
“'Crazy' had helped me own what I felt and thought, but it had also practically immobilized me.”
This lovely feminist woman is on a quest, a quest to reclaim the word crazy. This word needs to be returned to her, so that she can gift it right back
to the crazy world of perfect little unique snowflakes. This poor woman is plagued with a very serious mental illness. Her life is an incredible
burden, and the word crazy can immobilize her for elongated periods of time. What is this disease, you ask? The debilitating disease, is the one and
So now that we know what this poor soul is inflicted with, let us take a look at her entire article regarding her struggle with the word crazy. This
is, of course, a very SERIOUS illness. I can see exactly why she would have such an issue with this word, the "C" word.
"When I finally began feeling uncomfortable hearing other people with public platforms use it, I realized that I was not just contributing to the
stigma that harms people with mental illness—I was being lazy and inaccurate. Now, I #ReplaceCrazyWith the word I actually mean."
So the word crazy, is harming people.
“Crazy” is used to describe mental illness so pervasively that to many people, it’s come to sound like slang rather than a slight. Because
of this societal conditioning, when the word is newly applicable to you personally, it can take time to strike you as offensive."
We need time to adjust to getting offended. Sometimes you REALLY need to focus on getting offended, really ponder how you should be, and NEED to be
I suddenly realized that almost every time I had used the word “crazy” about something/someone besides myself, I had actually meant something
Now that you have forced yourself to get offended, this is the next step, which is to force everyone else to feel offended, after we force ourselves
into forcing it upon other people:
We all have to do what we feel to fight stigma and raise awareness.
The pain and agony of ADHD was and is a really tough ongoing battle for this snowflake. It was so rough!!!
And besides, nightly panic attacks and daily sobbing fits were hardly the worst thing I’d seen or heard of; I was miserable, but I wasn’t
seeing things that weren’t there or dealing with violent outbursts.
All of the YEARS of misery caused by ADHD will then take you into a self blame garden, filled with weeds and the emotional guilt of trying to force
yourself into being offended by the word crazy:
It took multiple misdiagnoses—most notably bipolar disorder—in my early 20s, followed by a long period of thinking that I was just a miserable
failure at life, to understand the power of the word “crazy.” I’d internalized it so much that the stigma seeds sown during my childhood had
grown into a self-blame garden.
In summary, please refrain from using the "C" word. It is very offensive to special blue haired snowflake feminists that have forced themselves into
being offended by a common every day word.
This is modern feminism. Let the offense begin.
