Where have I said that my experience of the world is more valid than theirs? If I did, I’ll probably retract it. What I said — or what I meant to say — is that MY experience of MY world is more valid than THEIR experience of MY world. I really don’t think I said they were overreacting, but if you point me to it, I’ll take a look.
I was making a very narrow point that seems to have been lost in the shuffle.
