It's better to disrespect an object over a person, or group of people.
It's better to disrespect a powerful person or group of people over a marginalized person or group of people, though neither is preferred.
IF I have to disrespect someone or something (which at some point we all will) that's how my own logic goes.
Yes, powerful people and groups of people are lowest on my list. The first will be last and the last will be first.
