Abandon the word––
And we will jettison its connotations.
I’m sorry but if you have to defend your sanctity of self before others
because you see a western head shrink for a mental illness––
Instead of mental illness, just call it––
psychologically inferior in some judgmental elitist’s spoon-fed opinion.
That’s what you should call your mental illness––
A terrific long acronym:
Works for me.
