Ps***o?? Psycho? Is psycho really a slur, as it's generally used in reference to people who are irrationally physically violent towards other people?

yes definitely. people who are psychotic (which is what “ps***o” is a shortened form of) is often used to describe, like you said, irrationally violent people. including violent, enraged, awful, mean people - also serial killers, murderers in general, often any person who hurts others intentionally. it is one of the worst kinds of things you can be. in reality, psychotic people are very very infrequently violent toward others, and in fact are much more often victims of violence from other people for a huge number of reasons, including simply because they experience psychosis. psychotic people need compassion and care and protection, not to be stereotyped as violent, irrational monsters. i do not experience psychosis, so i am not an authority on this, this is me repeating what i have seen people who experience psychosis saying, and trying to advocate for the mentally ill as someone who is also mentally ill (in different ways) and is going into clinical mental health counseling professionally.
