With all the social tension and pain that come from honest differences of opinion and ways of looking at the world, it's astounding to me when I see people intentionally go through the trouble to intentionally construct an insult that strikes at the core of who someone is. I doubt I know the person who did it, but I can only imagine that they place value in their target's pain. Occasionally I feel protective of people I know - this is one of those times. It looks like I'm not the only person who feels this way.
