Alex, thanks for your message. My apologies for being unawares.

It's true that i cannot know what abuses other people have endured. It's 
also true that they cannot know what abuses I may have endured.

Physical abuse that i personally experienced as a child is part of the 
reason i studied Child Development and Psych in college. It's part of 
the reason i am working with a group of teen girls in a low-income 
neighborhood to produce a podcast about violence and sexual abuse. It's 
one of the reasons i asked a young male rapper from the hood to stop 
glorifying violence in his lyrics-- but not in an accusatory way 
(another podcast).

So i shall be extra careful to consider my words. I only humbly suggest 
that people consider not being so quick to judge and accuse a person, or 
a sentence, on the basis of a syllable.
