Ignore any typos. My mobile can have an autocorrect mind of its own.
All I see are humans at odds anymore. Anything good happens and some people complain. Bad happens and obviously people complain. Whatever opinions and ideas and anything someone has, another will complain.
Religion. Abortion. Wealth. Poverty. Politics. Sexuality. Gender. Lottery winners. Celebrities. Addiction. Education. Refugees. Housing. Insurance. Clothing choices. Food choices. Prison. I cam go on and on and on. It's not just USA but the world.
We can't please everyone 100% of the time.
Or can we?
The only way to stop the Offended Humans is simple.
Every person in the entire world will:
Wear a head to toe grey single covering with a head and face cover. Something akin to a rectangular "fencing" (think of a hoop skirt but head to toe) so no body shape is evident. Also a general height of 7 foot tall is good so most will wear platforms.
The above will stop folks being offended about body size and hair styles and eye color and height.
Homes will be all duplicated, all same color just as the clothing. Furniture inside Wil be the same world wide, same grey color, same setup in all rooms. Carbon copies.
This way MO one will be offended that someone else has a better home or better anything.
Music and movies will be played same time so no one is different or offended.
Jobs will be the same job (somehow) same pay, same hours so no one will be offended that Jones makes more than Smith.
Do the same for vehicles. One make, one model, all the same inside, grey color. No one will be offended because Smith has a better car then Jones.
Forget talking. If someone has an offensive voice, we can't have that. No way. So all humans will communicate via preprinted cards, non offensive sentences, blah blah.
Too much more to write, and this couldn't be a thing anyway. More of a satire if anything. I guess folks will always be offended or going to war and fighting over "my way is the only way".....
So sad at least in the old days, people were more" live and let live". And were not vocal about opinions. At least not in public. Adults would speak on things at the dinner table or in bed at night.
Now it's just pure hate openly if anyone speaks differently. It's so so sad.
Thanks for reading.

The problem isn't so much that people get offended... Regardless of the circumstance it's going to happen. The Issue is that society puts too much merit on the emotional well being of the individual(there are some exceptions where this is acceptable of course) and this leads to people losing sight of the fact that people have differing perspectives on a given subject.

The "Era of the offended"? It seems a more accurate term would be "Human History". There's never not been offended people, nor has there never not been people greatly impacting their societies based purely on being offended.
