Shyness Is Nice, but...

On behalf of shy people everywhere, I accept this apology. Actually, I wasn't offended by the original statement, because I think it was meant in a kind of provocatively metaphorical way. I too get irritated at those who maintain that "hypocritical abstention from confrontation." Of course, the passive mode that refuses to formulate judgments might be a sign just of relative youth or inexperience, in some cases. That is, it might be found more in relatively young people who don't yet have the kind of confidence needed to get up and mix it up with others.

I have often said that I like shy people, but not meek people...
