So no one should ever say anything that might be interpreted as offensive ever.

Because someone, somewhere, at some time, might get or has been offended.

I don't believe there is a happy middle ground. We either allow it or don't right? From there it is a matter of deciding the lesser of two evils. That's my take on it, even though you didn't ask me
I also realize it was more of a hypothetical/hyperbole.

That being said, the first amendment can be ruled to not apply if you issued words of a vulgar nature with no intellectual value.

From there...its up to each state mostly. In Texas, i can whoop someones ass if I can prove "significant provocation".

...as you've said many times...so can you stove noses/cheek bones/teeth in if a bloke calls your wife 'that' word?
I've asked a few times now, do you feel able to explain what you can and cannot do in such circumstances?
You acting as the law on ATS I expect a declaration of how you respond/react to law in real life?

We should allow it.

We should always fight for the individual right to speak freely.

There is nothing that says we have to listen.

But the second that we all agree that it is right to silence offensive jerks, then I'll probably one of the first to be silenced.

So you disagree with Furry Texan then, beating someone for their offensive words is not apparently acceptable?

Didn't he answer you in that quote that you copied?

The broken record routine is getting very old.

Without diving too deep into your side debate, I would disagree with the Furry Texan.

Words cannot do harm.

Fists have a tendency to.

No, it was a lame deflective answer.
Does that make you cry? lol

Whether I think you are right or wrong, thankfully doesn't matter because we have the right regardless.

It's kind of funny the only person still screaming and carrying on is that strange talking fellow over there from across the pond. Sounds like "my country is better than yours" to me, but that would be silly in a thread about girls crying at a soccer game wouldn't it?

I believe so much in the right to speak freely, that I would even welcome comments from our cousins from the empire.

Yes your repeated question that has been answer is making me cry with laughter.

Instead of repeating yourself you should fly out to the states and start insulting people then you will get those firsthand experience and knowledge.

That is something a lot of them just can't seem to wrap their head around. In all honesty it is a very curious thing to watch someone struggle with.

What are you even going on about lad? Just kidding, I am not dumb mate. Try someone else please, you are having decent success but that will end with me.

What? First hand experience of a country which apparently supports shouting racist abuse at school games?
Lame.

The point being, if they don't deal with adversity now, what is going to happen later on when they are adults? And it will always be there.

Consider this, in most business settings, how a person deals with adversity and problems is something that most businesses will look at when it comes to promoting a person. Are they going to go cry and complain if they were passed over for a promotion? Or are they going to use it to go beyond what would be expected.

By giving in, by quitting, ultimately, they are letting the chanters win.

The irony of someone parading around #voteleave in order to get more independence for their country, screaming at me about having less independence in mine is not lost on me.

The problem here is, "offensive words" is not what i (or SCOTUS) said.

Like i said: read the links I gave you. Then we can talk about them. Or not. But I can't read them for you.

Considering the whole of this conversation I don't get you at all.
What you just said is totally irrelevant and again childish.


This isn't about some pro team. we have a RESPONSIBILITY to the kids.
The fact that as many feel as they do in this thread tells me why so many commit suicide each year.
