Being human complicates matters



Float text: "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can make me think I deserve it."

Two other points about the usual "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me": One is that it's an unreasonable standard. The vast majority of people are vulnerable to each other. And I'm not sure living with unshameable people would be an improvement.
