I like good strong words that mean something… 

Louisa May Alcott

Louisa May Alcott (born November 29, 1832), grew up in an iconoclastic household. Her parents were transcendentalists who later established a utopian community, and when she was a teenager the Alcotts were part of the Underground Railroad. Though her beloved book, Little Women, was based on her relationship with her sisters, it paints a more conventional family picture.

Love of Words’ word of the day!

heterodox • \HET-uh-ruh-dahks\  • adjective
1 : contrary to or different from an acknowledged standard, a traditional form, or an established religion :unorthodox, unconventional 2 : holding unorthodox opinions or doctrines 

Examples:
A lifelong contrarian, Alexa was known for putting forth heterodox opinions in her weekly culture column. 

“Levy is an intellectual descendant of the economist Hyman Minsky, a heterodox thinker who spent many years working at the Jerome Levy Economic Institute and whose theories were largely ignored by economists up until the latest financial crisis.” — Chris Matthews, Fortune, October 28, 2014

Did you know?
“Orthodoxy … is my doxy—heterodoxy is another man’s doxy,” quipped 18th-century bishop William Warburton. He was only punning, but it is true that individuals often see other people’s ideas as unconventional while regarding their own as beyond reproach. The antonyms orthodox and heterodox developed from the same root, the Greek doxa, which means “opinion.” Heterodox derives from doxa plus heter-, a combining form meaning “other” or “different”; orthodoxy pairs doxa with orth-, meaning “correct” or “straight.”
