Hannah i think you are too quick to judge and too slow to read.  I cited 
an article about a link between lack of sleep and the causes of 
schizophrenia, which is an actual illness despite your euphemisms like 
"neurotypical".

Mental illness is not imaginary, or simply a lack of political 
correctness.  People who hurt themselves (or others) because their mind is 
playing cruel tricks on them are not doing it because people are judging 
them for being different, but because (in some cases) their brain is not 
getting enough autophagy.  This may be because of the way they were born, 
or it may simply be because they are not sleeping enough.

If you don't understand the meaning of the term "acting crazy" i suggest 
you visit a mental hospital for a while and tell me the term has no 
meaning.  You're the ablist here.
