Ya know, you really might want to consider how your language comes across to others, at least on occasion. On the other hand, I’m pretty sure no one has ever described me as “mincing” or “ineffectual,” although I’m sure I’ve both slouched and apologized on occasion.
Are you intentionally trying to insult other Type 1s, or are you just unaware of what you are saying?
A woman (wife of a coworker) I had dinner with last night is openly Type 1. She works internationally in global health, frequently traveling to central Africa and Southeast Asia. She gives talks in front of the UN and the WHO on health inequity, and she was inspired to enter this field because of her recognition of how fortunate she was to develop Type 1 while living in the U.S.
Mincing, slouching, apologetic, and ineffectual? That says far more about you than it does about any other Type 1 you’ve met or are likely to in the future.
