A movement for white people who want to be victimized like minorities. They either get diagnosed or diagnose themselves with a mental illness so that they can get attention from others and brag about how unique and quirky they think they are.
"I'm not a minority, so I diagnosed myself with autism and made a movement called neurodiversity to victimize myself! Yay, I can be a victim too now and get attention from others!"

A relatively new social justice term used exclusively by white leftist progressives who have invented their own language that is used only on college campuses, and never in the real world.

"Neurodiverse" means you have a mental illness or mental disorder. For some reason, they have deemed the word "disorder" to be offensive, so therefore neurodiversity is the term they use to put a victim label on their mental problems.

A (neurodiverse) radar for telling whether someone is neurodivergent/neurodiverse or not. It is similar to a "gaydar". It is usually most effective for neurodivergent/neurodiverse people who have excellent neurodiverse radars to find/spot other neurodiverse/neurodivergent people. It also can signify that one's radar is not typical.
My neurodiverse radar is tingling. We are in the same boat here.

Is it me or did your neurodiverse radar tell you the same thing?

My neurodiverse radar is not functioning well and I am so confused.

Neurospicy people find each other through neurodiverse radar.
