Don’t downplay their feelings just because you’re friends with the offender

Speaking of enabling, it’s not okay to downplay one friend’s feelings just because you know the other friend “didn’t mean it like that” or because “she’s just like that.” We don’t get to determine what someone else finds offensive. Just because you have chosen to accept certain behaviors from someone doesn’t mean everyone else has an obligation to do so.
