"I highly doubt troubled individuals consciously use their troubled childhood as a license to do bad things later on in life."
I'm phrasin' my phrases wrong! Lemme clarify my clarification - the fact that
observers use his family history as a justification for his drug use/abuse/pedophilia (maybe? I will actually give him the benefit of the doubt as to whether he ever actually had sexual contact with any children) is the weakness.
Like people who make the argument that it's tough living your life in the spotlight or whatever - famous people make that choice, I feel like? Like no one forces them to sing & dance in front of a million people. It's something they can walk away from -
not easily, but they can, if it's really so hard being famoussss.
And while I don't have any numbers or statements or anything to back this up, I think there certainly are people who use crappy childhoods as an excuse for crappy behavior in their adult lives. I know it's definitely been trotted out by defense lawyers more
than a few times.
"The "weaksauce" is you, preaching your 'normal, healthy adult' gospel, which is just more rank "moralfaggotry," as the cool nerds say."
Calm down, dawg. It's not his drug use I have a problem with - some drugs aren't so bad, mkay? It's the fact that he ended up becoming a junkie + succumbing to his addiction. Plus, ya know, the pedophilia allegations. But like I said, I'm more or less willing
to give him the benefit of the doubt on that one, although he's still creepy as fuck.
Jared Leto, on the other hand, is a toolbag deluxe. More like 30 Seconds From M.A.R.S. (Mediocre Arena-Rock Shittiness).
