Eh.... Yes, absolutely. I wasn't clear though. My specific concerns were actually that there are folks who hold onto older labels and just don't let go because that's what they understand, and those include caregivers, parents, therapists, a few rogue doctors; people with power over patients that functionally screws with informed consent via misuse of information, whether intentional or otherwise. If someone in one of those positions is intentionally still using the old terminology, they fall into that category and it's a signal to an aware patient to gtfo.
