Pro: They really have it hard in life, and people are always so mean to them. Con: Yes, and it's their own damn fault. Pro: No, it's not! They didn't ask to be born that way! Con: It's a fault, and it's theirs. That makes it, by definition, their fault. Pro: But don't you feel sorry for them? Con: Supposing I do? What of it?
