Balancing Immunity

What does it mean to be thick or thin-skinned? Is it possible to exist in a way where both of these traits can simultaneously be in play? We exist in a landscape of extremes, where we are quick to separate the thick from the thin. The modern age, with all its astonishing revelations, also carries with it the burden of this divide.
