Thought of the day

It genuinely bothers me when people try and take the individual out of a situation. Of course, circumstances matter. Ideas matter. Context matters. We don’t live in a vacuum. But when people try and use blanket assertions, culling statistics or even stereotypes, and apply them to individuals, it gets under my skin. People have individual personalities, individual tendencies, individual backgrounds, individual perspectives. In short, we are all individuals. I know. Crazy.
