Yes, I have become That Person.

So, Queer the Census has a Bracket of Evil.  My feelings about *that* aside, I am deeply uncomfortable that one of their categories is "Crazies."  Way to contribute to the stigmatization and marginalization of persons with mental illness.  I am proud of me that I shot them back a quick email registering my discomfort (totally not as thoughtful and articulate as it could have been, but I decided I didn't have the energy for that kind of perfectionism today and if I just shot off a quick email it would actually get sent, as opposed to my usual m.o. of never getting anything finished).
