Being a degenerate is okay these days

Jae crossed his arms and regarded Brendan with an unimpressed frown. Oh, boo-freakin'-hoo. Poor little Brendan went and got his feelings hurt. It wasn't that Jae was exactly proud of his reputation, but he was self-aware enough to know how a lot of his classmates viewed him, and any one of them could confirm that he wasn't discriminatory when it came to who he took his frustrations out on. And frankly, it usually wasn't unprovoked - people asked for his opinions or his help and they got it, or they were just too stubborn or dense to accept what he was telling them. Or, like Brendan, they tried to call him out on whatever they thought he was singling them out for.

"I just said," Jae began, speaking more slowly and loudly, as if he was talking to a small child, "that I don't treat you any differently than I do anyone else. Your victim complex is not my problem. I don't take any special time out of my day to bother you, and I'm not going to change the way I act or talk just for you."
"Art enriches the community, Steve, no less than a pulsing fire hose, or a fireman beating down a blazing door. So what if we're drawing a nude man? So what if all we ever draw is a nude man, or the same nude man over and over in all sorts of provocative positions? Context, not content! Process, not subject! Don't be so gauche, Steve, it's beneath you."
