Are there many people here who get easily offended? This is really just a general discussion about how easily offended people are and what offends them. I don't think anything can offend me and people who do get easily offended I detest with a passion.
When I say this, they have the right to be offended if it's do with race/religion/physique but when they get offended for something that has nothing to do with them, say for example BBC says the word fuck before 8pm or this post for example then in my opinion they should goto hell. When Live8 got all those complaints I just felt like hurting people. If Madonna and Snoop Dogg shouted out "I hate obese black Muslims" then okay complain away. But they said "London are you fucking ready?" and "Fuck" are few times and like OMG alert the complaint office! Today, I was talking to an old lady and I muttered the word fuck when I dropped my pen whilst going through a salespitch. She told the manager that I offended her yet she didn't react to what I said in front of me.
So are you one who gets easily offended or are you laid back like me and just do not care if a penis related joke is said on a children's show?
I also want to hear from Jimmi who I know will get offended by this and the word "fuck."
Btw, I'm tired and I realize I repeat the word offended like a gizillion times but I can't be assed to change the words to keep a coherent amount of words without repeating myself.
I don't get easily offended, much like you. I'm mostly only offended by things directed directly at me. Regarding things like saying fuck before 8 pm in TV: I don't get offended by it but i still don't think it's appropriate. Children mimic things by nature, so if they hear the word fuck, they might say it a lot without even knowing what it means. And i'm against that. Just like in video stores i think it's wrong for pr0n to be on low shelves, but i don't get offended by it. I might still ask the store to reconsider their placement policy or whatever it's called.
But yes, in general i think people get offended too easily. I've often considered making a game where you control Satan and kill Angels, just to see if people would be offended

The people who get offended more easily are often n00bs, or Digital Dreams. It's a fact.
Getting offended by things is fine. Thinking your opinion matters is not. It's the people that feel the need to let everyone know how offended they are that absolutely fucking suck. Feminists, christians, and fat girls especially.
Any bigotry that's not meant in an ironic fashion offends me. Luckily I can differentiate fairly well. Trivial stuff like swearing I revel in -- if you're offended by that sort of thing, you're an idiot as far as I'm concerned. We were talking about swearing in English Language once and the teacher asked us to refrain from saying the dreaded words themselves. God forbid an English language teacher who couldn't bear to hear the language being spoken.
Interesting you say that about swearing at work, Broomie. I've developed a habit of swearing over very trivial things like dropping pens. Thankfully no-one has complained, I try to keep it on the tip of my tongue with the old people cos they love complaining. Most people under 35 don't seem to have a problem.
