Alex, thanks for your message. My apologies for being unawares. <br>
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). <br>
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. <br>
