23. Your gratuitous repetition of the term while essentially repeating the same charge substantially

weakens your argument in my view. When I looked up the term "sleeve" it seems the term is neither very precise nor is it very descriptive. Basically, it amounts to you repeatedly expressing your disgust. While you make a brave attempt to come across as calm an rational, your emotional bias takes over.

Miriam Webster:
Skeevy is slang, often used informally by a subset of English speakers to refer to someone or something that is physically or morally repulsive. While the word shows up more often in speech than in print, our files are nonetheless full of skeeviness: skeevy bathrooms, skeevy suitors, skeevy characters, skeevy towels, and even skeevy skivvies. The word has a few slangy cousins, too—most notably, the verb skeeve out, which describes being disgusted or unsettled by someone or something (“That creep skeeves me out”).Skeevy, originally spelled skeevie, first showed up in print as a noun—a 1955 article in American Weekly notes that skeevie is youth slang for a disgusting person, as in “He’s a skeevie.” Sometime between the 1950s and the 1970s, skeevy moved from noun to adjective, originally to describe something that’s morally questionable:

Urban dictionary
(verb) to gross out; to digust; to make your skin crawl, sometimes with undertones of sexual deviance/perversion

verb 1. to cause disgust (in someone). 2. +that: to be disgusted by (something)

a woman of loose virtue that is extremely like to perform a sexual act on any individual who pays her attention. The term is derived from the Italian "schifosa", the feminine form of the word for disgusting.

(Noun) A slang term used when referencing someone who is distastetful and/or uncomplimentary of the kind of person the user would hold in regard. Whom this describes is entirely based on opinion of said user.
