You are confusing contrived "vulnerability" with excuse-motivation . We are beginning to see a lot of this in feminist indignation. "Yes, it's true your honour, he only looked at me when I shot him but it felt as though I was being raped!" It's not a personal insult. Ignorance is seldom one's own fault. It is you who is using "The Chosen People" as part of your argument. It is up to you if you want to continue using it incorrectly. I could have said using it merely defeated your point and destroyed your credibility but I chose to give you an opportunity of correcting it. That's no "personal insult". I am interested to know whether you've put as much effort in finding out its meaning as you have in deflecting your misuse of it. Have you?
