The Nerdiverse Word Converter - Converts ‘bad’ words into ‘good’ words.

Sarah invented the Nerdiverse Word Converter to help with her Tourette’s Syndrome. Tourette’s Syndrome is a neuropsychiatric disorder characterized by involutary behaviors known as tics. Some common tics include grimacing, head jerking, shrugging, throat clearing, grunting and swearing.

Sarah has reprogrammed her mind in a way that’s designed to trick her illness into believing that swear words are actually ‘good’ words She’s created an imaginary world of ‘nerds’, where the rules are sometimes the opposite of the rules that govern our universe.  In the ‘Nerdish’ language, words mean the opposite of what they mean in English. For example, Sarah can say, “You look nice”, which in Nerdish might mean, “Fuck you”.

This strategy allows Sarah to have a ‘legal’ way to satisfy the compulsion to swear.
