Sure. But more broadly, in my 62 years of life, I have lived by the principle that when somebody says something I find insulting or disturbing, 90% of the time or more, it was just ignorance, and not meant that way in the least.

What I often find in these Medium “touchy-feely-my-feelings-got-hurt-and-you-must-be-some-kind-of-evil-(…gist)”, is that people seem not to be giving their fellow citizens the benefit of the doubt anymore. IOW, if someone hurts your feelings, it must be because of evil intent.

That’s not going to end well for society, if that’s the case.
