Why Animal "Abusers" Aren't Concerned with Offending Us
- abuse - offend - alienation -

Comments by Maynard S. Clark - 7 November 2001

I'm always wary of saying that "I" am offended, or that "I" object because the issue is not "MY" feelings, but something bigger and even more fundamentally OBJECTIVE than someone's perceptions or feelings.

Now when someone claims that physical harm is merely "offending" the victim's "feelings" and claims at that point that the offense is "subjective", it becomes quite obvious that the perpetrator of violence is not only callous and insensitive, but both antisocial and dangerous.
