Still Not A Bro, Still Not A Russian Agent, Still Glad Hillary Lost
Caitlin Johnstone

I have to admit, you lost me after you used the phrase “psychotic rageaholic.” I just wrote an essay about psychosis (not on Medium). When people use these terms outside of the mental health context, it’s often stereotypes associated with psychosis and not the actual experience of psychosis. Even casually grouping “rageaholic” with “psychotic” reflects the misconception that people with psychosis are potentially violent. I wish you could have come up with a better analogue. I get what you’re saying. It could be said in a different way without appropriating mental illness to make a point.
