Why should I care if people are offended?

Let people be offended.

What I have a problem with is people regurgitating buzzwords and terms that are pushed by propagandists.

It's really not that hard to figure out.



It's easy to spot the Rush, Hannity and ORilley listeners by the insults they call people they disagree with.

Don't care.

Not my problem what others say.

If I don't like it, I stop reading/listening.

Exactly.

You know what I am talking about.

First the came for the Snowflakes, but I was not one. . .

Then they came for the Booger-heads, but I was not one. . . .

Then they came for the Retards, but I was not one. . . . . .

Then they came for me and I had no words to describe them.



Try adjectives.

It's usually a defense mechanism... :-/


It is.

So many people have no argument except a verbal strawman attack or deflection.

Because they know their position can't be defended realistically.

People can call me snowflake or whatever else their heart desires. I don't really give a rat's patooty. In fact, it really is none of my business what other people think about me. We discuss serious topics here, and to think that people won't get emotional at times is silly, especially when there's alcohol involved. I sure hope " no alcohol permitted " isn't included in the T&Cs

Bravo. I think you just encapsulated the entire American political experience. Pathetic isn't it?

The anti-PC people are just as bad as the PC people.

What I do not understand is how they do not see it themselves.

Both sides are the same, they are like the inverse of one another.

Both want only want what they believe to be allowed.

It's all the same.


~I think you should call a thing what it is. If you get offended by calling something what it is then you stop making sense (if by making sense you mean to define something according to a common reference).

As such, what you have written makes absolutely no sense at all. I mean what does that even mean? We are all the same? We all are inverse?

Things are what they are, getting offended by the names we give them generally is ridiculous.

We have a much bigger problem than ennui.

Can I still say that, or will that offend someone?

I know I haven't been triggered, can I say triggered?

Why stop there? Why not also get rid about a million other words like Libs, Rightists, Leftists, Libtards, NeoCons, Socialists, Communists, Marxists, Progressives, Conservatives, Liberals, Democrats, Republicans, SJW, Regressives, Right, Left, Triggered, crybabies, whiners, Gays, Trans, Straight, Christian, Jews, Blacks, White Males, Homosexuals, Muricans, Southerners, Hippies, Pinkos, French, Muslims, etc, etc, etc, etc,

Because I've seen every single one of those used negatively and as a derogatory label too around here.

I don't like to self censor myself unless I think it's important to do so.
I don't think others should censor themselves either unless they feel they should.

"Trigger" triggers me.

OMG!

I've self-triggered.

(I'll go blind!)

Apparently asking for basic respect for others is a difficult thing for some. I guess we all age differently.

It's the mocking sarcasm and use of corny euphemisms that really get's my goat!

What's wrong with "snowflake"??

It has a specific meaning which fits perfectly and isn't offensive.

Sure it can be over used and used incorrectly a lot but you can do that with any other word too and we aren't getting rid of them.

Take Triggered for example.

Feeling Triggered now are you because I want to keep snowflake???

Huh. Just a little bit triggered???








Triggered???

I think at 'that' point, the Borg Gov induced Mind would take over. Welcome to 1984.

I think ATS is going to need a group therapy forum at this rate. Call it the "Safe Space" where only hugs and stars are aloud.
