comment Grammatically correct or not?
Hello, Rohan Charles, snd thanks for your interest in English Language & Usage. At this site we try to answer questions about specific (and sometimes quite complicated or nuanced) issues related to the English language. Unfortunately, your question is less a request for a precise explanation than a yes/no question that amounts to "Is this sentence okay?" If you find a particular aspect of the sentence confusing or dubious, please focus on that. If you're just looking for yes/no confirmation, our sister site ELL may be a more suitable forum.

comment Grammatically correct or not?
As Hot Licks suggests, the problem with this answer isn't that it's wrong (it's not). The problem is that it answers the OP's question as if that question were seeking confirmation of a scientific fact, rather than asking about grammatical correctness. A useful answer (as opposed to a by-the-bye comment) here would explain why the OP's sentence is grammatically correct—or at least indicate how the parts of that sentence work together harmoniously.

comment Is there an antonym of “ruthless”?
Depending on the particular kind of ruthlessness you are seeking the reverse of, you might wind up with anything from fair-minded to considerate to scrupulous to sporting as an antonym of ruthless.

comment What does “pass it” mean?
The phrase "pass it" means "defecate it"—that is, pass it out of our bodies.

comment What's the meaning of “out of being an ass”?
The point, I think, is that, whereas some difficult social situations can safely be navigated by using a combination of caution and humility and (in the worst case) profuse apologies, the underlying condition of assness is nonnegotiable.
