If common behaviours were pathologised:
MFOD - Monetary fixation obsessive disorder
DAAD - Diversity aversion & avoidance disorder
CEDD - Chronic empathy deficit disorder
LRDD - Logic & rationale deficit disorder
CFHD - Capital & financial hoarding disorder
@freedcreative @Stoori this is rly great, but also i think LRDD also needs its opposite up there. there are heaps of pathological ways ppl insist on reason and logic to delegitimate less normative approaches, or when what they are really insisting on is simply behaviour that is more conformist. it's like subjectivist colonialism...
But I agree, the "Faxun lojik" brigade have, ludicrously, coopted the concept of logic. However to my mind many people use a pretence of logic to cover for conformity and often supremacy.
So I consider this psuedo-logic. Actual logic starts with the premise of avoiding bias through keeping a wide open mind.
There's also people who use actual facts and actual logic in unhealthy ways, by insisting that every question be addressed exclusively based on their logic and facts -- including questions of taste, affection and emotional needs/states.
They will frequently falsely believe themselves to be unaffected by emotion (but of course are everything but)

@freedcreative This is fantastic and I love it. Have you read that satirical blog post which offers advice to parents whose child has been diagnosed as "neurotypical"?
@jaycie I have! It's what started me thinking about these things. And even though I'm joking, I'm also really not.
If we quantified what needs treatment by the damage it causes to self and others these things would be determined to require urgent care.
Revel in the marvels of the universe. We are a collective of forward-thinking individuals who strive to better ourselves and our surroundings through constant creation. We express ourselves through music, art, games, and writing. We also put great value in play. A warm welcome to any like-minded people who feel these ideals resonate with them.
