The word must adhere to a concept.
It is a human type. An individual classified by a label and pathologised and pejoratised as well as discriminated and disadvantaged
If you bow to the language of illness you bow to the power to normalise and change this essential and valuable yet maligned human type.
If you respect the diversity of the human race and value it like I do then you can not use the language of illness to describe human types. Schizophrenia as a disease is as valuable and true a concept as negritude.
This is why language and concepts are important.
