CapsuleCollider2D.bounds empty

Whenever I try debuggging the following code, my bounds appear to be empty. The center, min, and max fields are all populated with the same values, and the size and extents are all 0.

private Collider2D On() { return On(colmask.bounds); }
	private Collider2D On(Bounds bounds)
	{	const float EPSILON = 0.015f; //Mathf.Epsilon;
		LayerMask appropriate_layers = LayerMask.GetMask("Default", "Ground");//TODO make a constant value.
		return Physics2D.OverlapArea
		(	new Vector2(bounds.min.x + EPSILON, bounds.min.y),
			new Vector2(bounds.max.x - EPSILON, bounds.min.y - EPSILON),
			/*results,*/ //This is where the results go on some functions, can be ignored since I only need to know that there was a collision.

The properties window starkly disagrees with these values, but I’m still only able to jump once in a blue moon (apparently depending on my position, and rotation, which shouldn’t matter since I am using bounds).

Finally, here’s the Update function I am calling the function from.

void Update ()
	{	dx = Input.GetAxis("Horizontal") * speed;
		/**/ if (dx > 0) Cx =  1;
		else if (0 > dx) Cx = -1;
		var floor_collider = On( /*BoundsColliders(gameObject)*/ );
		if (floor_collider!= null)
		{	var floor = floor_collider.gameObject;
			if (Input.GetButtonDown("Jump")) Jump();
			if(floor.tag == "Enemy" && floor.transform.position.y < y)
			{	var atk = floor.GetComponent<Enemy>().vigor.Attack(attack_power);
				if( Health.Atk.DIES == atk ) Destroy(floor);
			//aligns character to the ground it is standing on
			ContactPoint2D[] contacts = new ContactPoint2D[1];
			Physics2D.GetContacts(floor_collider, colmask, new ContactFilter2D(), contacts);
			var norm = contacts[0].normal;
			if (norm != transform.rotation = Quaternion.FromToRotation(Vector2.up, norm);//Rotate the sprite

		//if (Input.GetButton("Fire1") && Time.time > next_missle) Fire();
		if (Input.GetButton("Fire1")) AutoFire();

So why do my extents appear to be 0, and why can’t I jump?

I figured it out! Whenever I used GetComponent() I was getting the disabled BoxCollider2D, which has empty bounds because it is disabled. I didn’t realize GetComponent could get disabled components.
