Weird is a significant acronym that describes most people including me this to me feels like the right way to describe some people

Most people still think that being different or W.E.I.R.D. is bad but it's a spectacular talent or something special and you should share it no matter what every one else thinks.

Not to solve but hopefully persuade and change perspectives of people.
