No, it is more than enough that is is "relatively" true, i.e., for me. :-)

meta-linguistic statement, which may well be absolutely true or false
without any especially unresolvable paradox...

Yes, this is normal, and btw it is a statement of fact, not a value
judgment. The same is probably valid for many acid throwers.
