Does anyone have a term for "special interest" that maybe feels less... demeaning? While also still conveying that they are special?
Or perhaps this is an internalization of "special" as a bad thing and the term is worth reclaiming? I dunno I'm conflicted on the whole thing.
@hoppet "I'm a [interest] nerd"? I really like reclaiming "nerd", but it might not be for everyone.
