This mindset is becoming epidemic.
I honestly fear that there won't be enough safe places for these snowflakes.
It's this mindset that will be in media, politics and policy decisions as well as corporate hierarchies.
Now I need a safe place. I'm scared.

This is the scary thing though. This is the weapon against the 1st Amendment that people don't understand or want to understand. Sure, no one makes a law against saying things, but this "I'm offended" hysteria is bleeding over into the realm of political speech and the free exchange of ideas.
Instead of you or I or anyone else speaking out of hate, the idea of hate speech is morphing into "I hate hearing you say it" therefore you shouldn't be allowed to speak.
