“People say you’re bananas, you’re mad, so it was trying to look at the language and to see how much have we moved on.”

“I was listening to Stephen Fry on the radio when I came in this morning, he was talking about how people with poor mental health are reclaiming some of the language. They are reclaiming the word mad and crazy. Like, sometimes people say you’re bonkers. There was a Bonkers Pride in London last year or something and they released all these bananas from a cannon and it was all people with mental health problems. People say you’re bananas, you’re mad, so it was trying to look at the language and to see how much have we moved on.”
