Yeah but aren’t weirdos the kind of people social conservatives, and also the alt left hate? For instance, you can’t get any weirder than an effeminate man petting a poodle, LOL

You don’t understand! People who are not normies are not necessarily weird at all. They have just stopped playing a lot of the society games and/or more importantly, they don’t particularly care if other people have stopped playing the society games.

My aunts and my cousins are not normies but I doubt if they are all that weird. If you met them, you would not think they were weird. They just don’t hate people who don’t play the game or play by the rules, that’s all. They’ve made up their own mind what’s important and what’s not.

A lot of the time my Mom is not a normie, but my Mom is the least weird person on Earth. She thinks a lot of society stuff is just complete shit though, honestly. You mention a lot of normie stuff or rules or ways of looking at the world to her and she will say, “Those people are idiots…Well, they’re lying…That’s stupid…They don’t understand…etc.” You get the picture.

To not be a normie just means that you are kind, empathetic, understanding and humble. You try to understand why people act the way that they do instead of blindly condemning them.

The favorite normie word is “weird.” They are all always calling everyone weird. I guess half the world is weird to normies. And they hate everyone who is “weird.” Now, when you tell me that someone is “weird” and you scrunch up your face, you have not told me one single damned thing about that human being. Am I supposed to hate them now or something. I try to envision what this person is like, but I have no clue because I have no idea what “weird” even means.

I never call anyone weird or if I do I will always give you a detailed explanation of why I think they are strange. Generally instead of using weird or strange or other bullshit words, I will simply describe the person’s behavior. Weird means a million different things. You told me someone is “weird” and you made an ugly face. But it’s perfectly possible that I might meet that person and think there is nothing weird about them at all.

Another world normies use is “crazy.” The problem is your average normie knows nothing whatsover about mental illness, so they have no business calling anyone crazy. If you tell me someone is crazy, what have you told me about that human being? Absolutely nothing at all. Are they nuts? Well, maybe they are, maybe they aren’t. I have met lots of people who get called crazy all the time, and I do not think they are even 1% nuts. To me, there’s nothing wrong with them, except maybe they aren’t playing by the rules or they are doing their own thing somehow of maybe deliberately being eccentric or a character.

A word normies use a lot is “eccentric.” Except when normies use it, it means you are crazy or weird in some disturbing or dangerous or seriously mentally ill way. Eccentric is one of the world things a normie can call you. Now me, I happen to like a lot of eccentrics. If you tell me someone is eccentric, you have told me nothing about this person. What am I supposed to think about them. Eccentric is a retarded insult. It is not even a good description. If you tell me someone is eccentric, I want to know some exact details. I want to precisely what this person is doing that makes you call them eccentric. Then I will make up my own mind if they are really eccentric or not.

Keep in mind that part of my work is in mental health. We don’t like to call people crazy, weird, eccentric or any of that. We are supposed to avoid using terms like that, first because they are insulting but second because they have zero explanatory value. Those words tell me nothing whatsoever about a human being. If you think someone is crazy, weird, or eccentric, no problem. But I want you to describe exactly what it is about this person’s behavior that makes you call them names like that.

Are you starting to get it?
