Is it still okay to use a mental health condition as an adjective?
For instance, I heard someone describe their family life as schizophrenic. She speaks her native tongue at home with her parents, follows those cultural traditions. But outside the house, it's English and whatever culture this country thinks it has.
I see people calling themselves or their actions bipolar but they don't have a diagnosis.
People love to use OCD as the descriptor when they are actually describing perfectionism.
If it is okay, then why don't we start using retarded to describe someone making a poor decision again?
