I vote to eliminate the word ‘toxic’ as a definition or reference to people.
Oil and water don’t mix, yet neither are toxic. Chemistry comes in all forms and creates all kinds of end products both healthy and not-so-healthy. However, it’s all about the mix, not necessarily the ingredients.
How about we just start leaving it as: “We just don’t get along.” Period. The labels are unnecessary.
Just a thought.
But, if you really need a label? Call ‘em a curmudgeon. At least you’ll laugh when you say the word.
Lots of love,
