If you have a good hand, you aren't stealing from the button. You're raising for value. True, the blinds might fold and you pick up the pot uncontested, but if you're called, you usually have a good chance to win post flop in most situations.
You're only truly stealing from the BTN with bad hands by getting your opponent to fold, allowing you to pick up the pot. In this situation, you don't want to get a call or even 3bet as you'll have a bad hand post flop or be forced to fold.
