I'm not saying that. I'm saying that's the interpretation some people choose when they try to be humble. You can be humble but assertive and that involves picking your battles, not constantly saying live and let live. The last part is some shit I've had rammed down my throat for almost two years by an army of hypocrites. If that helps explain my responses here.

Ah. Gotcha. Thank you for the clarification.

In that particular situation, I agree with you. It's probably easy for some of us to backslide from humility to self deprecation if we're not careful.

I see it more as complete fecklessness of morals if you want to ignore the actions of a rapist because "he's sick too."
