So her hard life excuses her abusive nature? and I actually retracted that accusation earlier. Nice of you to confirm it publicly. I'm sure my past is far more disturbing than hers, so I am invoking my right to call names, accuse people of being sexist when they aren't and lie to make myself look good, on account of the multiple rapes i have suffered at the hands of a black man, regular physical assaults at the hands of the same black man, having been held hostage by a Pakistani man in a Muslim country for a year, having been forced to watch my children abused by this same Pakistani Muslim man while in captivity, and facing a terminal illness of my own all the while. Yet I somehow still manage to not be a misandrist, an Islamaphobe, or a racist. Many serial killers were abused as children, many rapists were molested as children or abused in some way, many child abusers were abused themselves, many wife beaters were abused as children. I guess the abuse they suffered as children should excuse their behavior as well and we just try to understand them rather than lock them away and punish them for their appalling behavior towards others. Or, we can treat Bells the same way we expect to be treated and stop making excuses for her obnoxiousness. If her past makes her incapable of objectively seeing the world around her perhaps she is in no mental state to be a moderator.
