I don't really know shit about him, but for the record: someone can be both a victim, and an asshole, at the same time.

In fact many perpetrators of abuse, were themselves abused, which is no excuse of course.

But again, I'm not talking about him specifically, because I know nothing about him. And while other comments do speak of him, it isn't good to confuse something you read in a random comment, with something you actually know as a matter of fact. Thus I still know nothing about him.

Exactly. My mother was victimized, and then she went on to victimize her children.

I understand why she is the way she is.

But she can't be in my life because she refuses to admit wrongdoing.

Yea. You're right. Way too complex to "know" anything about other people.

Edit: not sure why I'm being down-voted. He is right. Life and relationships are far too complex to truly 'know' what another person is like or going through.
