why do people think that others should give a flying fuck that something offends them?stop getting offended, it does nothing.

I'm offended by the notion that I can't be offended, so I'm starting a movement called "offensism" whereby I and other modern thinkers like me can lobby for our freedom to feel offended.

I get offended when people get offended!

But seriously, we should all be just respectfully and honestly speak our minds. Then if someone loses their crap it will at least be obvious to those with common sense that they over-reacted.

People say that as a fact, and act like they should be treated differently all of a sudden. Its a sort of phrase that never started with much meaning. It comes from a place of opinion, rather than regurgitating society's agreement that its a fact.

It doesn't work that way.

Instead, everything gets censored.

slippery slope fallacy in your third post?

you shall do well here, my friend

I don't know man, far as I'm concerned you can feel offended, but then I should have the right to think that it's stupid to be offended on the internet. Or some such shit, I don't know, I'm not gonna get in the middle of this discussion again.

Yea, stop being offended, you asshole! It's not like I can control what I say. You just need to control the mental states in control of your perceptions of reality! Duh!

Impossible. To start a movement, one must have been offended by some act or idea, so the idea of anti-offensism is absolutely ludicrous.

Bullshit. Not liking something and wanting it to change doesn't mean you get offended by it.

Alright, before this gets locked. These forums are supposed to be this bliss paradise, a world away from the world, away from annoying society. In the real world, you have to try to not get offended. Keep them thoughts out there, and you keep them thoughts about Everquest Next, in here. ~ When you go back into the world, they just gon' give a fuck about how offensive your shirt is. They like that trouble.

I am offended by your inability to accept anti-offensism as not accepting someone being offended by someone being offended is very offensive of you.

Bullshit. Not liking something and wanting it to change doesn't mean you get offended by it.

So now you want to talk, eh?

Being offended by something is human, and responding to it in a rational manner with the intent of expressing your disagreement is perfectly reasonable. Going through life without being offended at all is impossible, and if it were possible, it would be unhealthy. For that matter, at this very moment I'd say that you are offended by the notion of being offended. You can join @thedudeofgaming's movement, I'm sure he's got a sign-up sheet drawn up already.

Oh yeah? Well, I am offended by your inability to accept that anti-offensism is offensive to me so it's racist, sexist, homophobic, and condescending all in one!

MOTHERFUCKERS GENTLEMEN, WE'RE GOING TO WASHINGTON!

(...actually, I'm less offended by that and more admirable of it. Also, logic didn't so much jump out the window as it did leap into space.)

Telling random people to stop getting offended or the old standby, "I'm offended that you're offended" is an asshole move...as is the OP's pointless post.

So you're an alt of a user who's currently karma banned? Thanks for letting us know! Multiple accounts are against the site rules.

I think we're done here.
