Look, it is best to just let it go. I'm not trying to gain sympathy from anyone, no one is being bullied. It is a very touchy subject and it does raise a lot of emotions. My self-esteem a lot of the time is about 1" from the ground. This is true and it's something that I'm learning to deal with. I take everything and internalize it because I on a base level feel like an uneducated, immature, and it's my issue to deal with and no one should have to apologize. I shouldn't be putting myself down and this was not a personal attack I know that. It has nothing to do with me as a person but how my statements come across. Everyone does have a right to say what they think. Some people are more logical and some people are more emotional. I happen to be emotional and it clouds my logical thinking (a lot). Can we please just drop this? Racism, sexism, agism, and anything else like that makes me sick to my stomach and I can't stand anyone putting anyone else down for anything.
