Ableism, the term "sociopath", queerphobia 

Infodump time!

Because i just saw another "capitalists are sociopaths", here's what you should know about that term:

All known mental disorders are classified in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM) by the American Psychiatric Association. The one currently used for diagnoses is the fifth revision, published in 2013.

The term "sociopath" has not been used in the second to fifth DSM. The only edition that used the term was the very first, published in 1952, which had a diagnosis called "Sociopathic Personality Disturbance"

It was split into four categories:

1) Antisocial Reaction: This was defined as "chronically antisocial individuals who are always in trouble, profiting neither from experience nor punishment, and maintaining no real loyalties to any person, group, or code". A similar diagnosis still exists; Antisocial Personality Disorder

Also yesterday I learned of a truly terrifying organism called the monkey puzzle tree, which looks like a huge branching eldritch horror.
Its leaves are sharp and shaped like scales, and are clustered around each branch, making a terrible prickly tentacle.
Standing under it is immensely frightening and they're endangered and I'm going to give my life to their conservation
