where are the friendly words for neurodivergent people

i don't wanna describe myself with a five syllable word! i say i'm gay, not i'm homosexual

i will reclaim kooky if i have to

@lynnesbian

Kooky has too many negative connotations. I suggest “soopergenius”.

@lynnesbian I just go with "weird," personally. I reclaim it. Sometimes I'll say "brainweird" to be more specific.

@lynnesbian I've read about Mad Pride but I've never seen "mad" used in that way. It makes it sound like we're angry. Sometimes we are! Sometimes we have something to be mad *about*. I tend to just call myself crazy but it's frowned upon. Maybe there are shorter words for *specific* conditions than the catchall?
