The word schizophrenic is often used by judges and in dictionary is " an offensive term meaning characterized by conflicts and contradictions" but use of this word is offensive to people who have the organic brain disorder of schizophrenia. Important to note that the main symptom of this illness is psychosis which has components of paranoia and a disconnect from reality. Please do not use the word schizophrenic!! Use the word contradictions since that is want you mean. Thank you
