Everyone's going back and forth on how/when/why to be offended or not. My question to everyone, completely free of sarcasm, is this: what has being offended ever gotten you?

For me, being offended has never brought me health, wealth, friends or happiness.

you act like I choose to be offended.

it's a emotional response dude. What has crying ever gotten you? what has being depressed ever gotten you?

That doesn't mean I sit idly by and let it happen to others.

What have you done lately?

Other than argue on video game forums.

well personally I have been wracked with terrible medical problems which is why the only thing I can really do is post on forums

I'm sick of being shamed for being born the way I am.

you aren't though? I never said that you were incapable of empathy, just that the majority of people saying "don't be offended" are usually straight, white, and male, because they don't have the context someone black might, or someone gay might; but they might be really fat or really skinny, or be atheist in a rural area, or be autistic, or whatever.

No, he in fact is in the context of this thread. You, purposefully or not, frame your problem with the other side, first and foremost, in the context of their race, gender, and sexual orientation. That is in fact the first words you write, with one of them capitalized so as to point to how you specifically are different (and given the way you framed the faults, inherently better by not being straight).

You want to talk about how it is the experiences to non-whites with racism, etc, speak of those social experiences specifically. If you think throwing out the terms "white", "male", and "straight" offers any comprehensive yet also nuanced representation of the root of the problems, then you are a fool.

I thought we all knew that already

@EquitasInvictus: I think so, I've seen that used in other places (though I can't remember them)

you are probably right but nothing to do about it now! I was also just waking up from 4 hours of sleep and had a terrible stomach ache (not that it excuses it but ya know)

Really? People are offended by one piece of incidental dialog in the game? I swear some people just search for things to be offended by so they can parade around and draw attention to themselves.

ITS TRUE YOU FIGURED ME OUT I'M NOT ACTUALLY OFFENDED BY ANYTHING

or wait maybe it was just a terrible thing in a game that I already didn't want to buy and this is reinforcing that decision but HEY

Your loss then!

I never even beat blood money so whatevs (gonna get back to it eventually)

If people were out campaigning to "kill all the cis's" you might have some semblance of a point, but unfortunately you do not.

Die Cis Scum" is a very popular phrase in your commun

and I won't even mention the countless tumblrs dedicated to wishing death upon non-transsexuals.

You're trying to compare a fringe group of 4% of the American population to living your life in a society that doesn't accept your lifestyle? (I'll admit my post is American-centric)

Classy.

that map is even bigger for transsexuals I believe

@Akrid: eh there's plenty of bad blood between the gay and transgender community here in the states; the gay crowd excluded trans people from the ENDA (employer non discrimination act) because it would've been easier to pass (it didn't pass anyway but still).
