English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. stigma

    Whatever mars the beauty or completeness of an object is a blemish, whether original, as squinting eyes, or the result of accident or disease, etc., as the pits of smallpox. A blemish is superficial; a flaw or taint is in structure or substance. In the moral sense, we speak of a blot or stain upon reputation; a flaw or taint in character. A defect is the want or lack of something; fault, primarily a failing, is something that fails of an apparent intent or disappoints a natural expectation; thus a sudden dislocation or displacement of geological strata is called a fault. Figuratively, a blemish comes from one's own ill-doing; a brand or stigma is inflicted by others; as, the brand of infamy.

    Synonyms:
    blemish, blot, blur, brand, crack, daub, defacement, defect, deformity, dent, disfigurement, disgrace, dishonor, fault, flaw, imperfection, injury, reproach, smirch, soil, speck, spot, stain, taint, tarnish

  1. Mary Campbell:

    I wish my parents could've been here to hear that, and I wish everyone could hear how it truly feels to live with mental illness, the stigma of mental illness was just so demoralizing at the time when I was diagnosed that I couldn't come out. I couldn't really seek the treatment I needed. It just took a lot of self-advocacy.

    At first, I was actually sheepish about having our family in the public at all, but I do think that it's really important to talk about, because there's all this stigma around special needs, and autism specifically. And there really shouldn't be, because all our children have something special to offer. And our son has made our family better.

  4. Victoria Maxwell:

    There's a big stigma about being on psychiatric drugs, that somehow, it's like, because I can't cope I'm on medication. And no, it's because I have a certain kind of system and in order to function really well, I need medicine.
