I have this sentence where I used the word infringement, and I think I'm exaggerating things a bit by choosing it. Moreover, I want it to mean: not saying anything bad in any way about someone, not speaking of them badly.
How do I explain my stance without infringement his family and without putting myself in an awkward position in front of him?
So, is there a suitable word to put it instead of infringement?
Also, about the word stance, does it mean position? And, does it fit in that sentence?
