It's a strange argument to say that you either stop all abuse everywhere at once...or leave off whatever group you happen to be shining a light upon and go somewhere else and pick another group.
If I single out Tahitians, someone comes along and says, "why Tahitians?...what about Eskimos, they are hurting too" So I leave the Tahitians and rush to the Eskimos, only to have someone tell me that it's foolish to think only Eskimos are hurting...what about Fijians...so off I go to Fiji...to hear yet again that Fijians aren't the only ones afflicted, "you fool", and how about the Shoshone Indians...by now I just smash the person saying all of this.
And when you stop to consider that the person saying this is a Christian...or worse yet, is a member of each of the groups it sends me AWAY from...you want to smash 'em again and again...except, what makes you think that only THIS person deserves to be smashed?...so you go back to where you started and smash everyone there and move right along cause you want to be fair and smash everybody.
And in the end, instead of helping any one of a number of suffering and deserving groups...you are driven to smashing EVERYBODY just because of this little twit...whose entire point was to get you to stop annoying her....except how come you only want to stop annoying her...do you realize there are lots of people in the world you shouldn't annoy and on and on.
note: Alli...come back, all is forgiven, You don't have to make sense, you don't have to do anything, just BE, dude, just be who you are, dude.
