When I make a - fairly minor - observation (very minor spoiler for the Alphas pilot there) about the misuse of a medical term in a TV show on tumblr, I find it pretty aggravating that somebody I have never spoken to reblogs my post and tags it with "some people need to take a chill pill".

Considering that it's really pretty important that a word used in a medical context means the same thing to every medical practitioner, I'd say that "the same word can mean different things depending on who is using them" is not really appropriate in this case. And certainly using insulting tags when you know that the person will see your reblogged post and be able to see your tags? Not really okay, tumblr.

People are dumbasses. When you get a degree in visual science, then come and argue medical semantics with me.
