I don't even know what the point of that is supposed to be. Making light of a very real issue, that I maybe have explained in a simplistic way, but I've no other way to describe it. I can think for myself over what some random folks are saying on the internet, but that doesn't mean these "standards" do not exist, etc.
As I read it, it's not condescension.
Nor is it not making light of your problem at all; it's creatively reframing your problem, in the hopes that you might be able to take a different perspective.
Obviously, the allegory didn't work the way it was intended.
