    dotsYou Are Humandots
    -------------------------------------------


    Quite interesting how people use the fact that "we are human" to justify a situation.
    "You are upset, it's okay to be upset, you are human."
    "You're angry? That's only natural because you are human."
    "Can't expect things from people, they are only human."
    Well...so what?
    What exactly is human? I think of the textbook definition of maybe "a mammal that is part of the human race".
    However, it seems as if society has developed some skewed definition of humans being weak and inevitably disappointing. Think about it, if being human is having qualities, such as emotions, that is distinctive in the human race, then why do we only use it to justify negative situations? You already know emotions range from joyful and thrilled to solemn and furious. However you never hear people say
    "It's okay to be happy, you're human."
    "I know you can't help that you're excited, you are human"
    I don't know, I am just starting to see this as a really dumb excuse. Soon it will be
    "She cheated? It's alright, she is only human"
    "He murdered someone? Welp, he is only human."
    Interesting.

      It's insightful. Being human is only the common denominator ...not even, in some cases I guess could be argued.
    But yes, when something so menial is named as a scapegoat... let's just say it makes the judicial system look like a knight in shining armour.

    My only critique is your definition of human can be alot more exact, cited or otherwise. Choose a definition that is descriptive and leans itself towards your point ...possibly even striking irony. Trust me, there are definitions enough to choose from!
