I recently learned that I must not call my traumatic fear that I gained through mobbing at school "homophobia" anymore.

Instead, I must use the word "traumatic fear" nowadays.

No joke.

When I found out, I was quite astonished that a term of clinical fear has evolved into something that's equal to racism.

I'm waiting for the day until words like Claustrophobia, Spheksophobia and similar clinical terms evolve similar to this.

It will probably end up calling someone who has an actual Spheksophobia as a "racist against wasps" or something like that.

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
