Why are some people so easily offended?

Recommended Posts

I believe people who are so easily offended  be it Boris Johnson last week or any non PC statements are angry, sensitive unfulfilled people in general.

There are groups of left wing and right wing people who seem to have a copyright on being offended. Anything that is said  seems to offend them its ironic but the majority of these people tend to be the most insulting crude people I have ever met, they reply to a comment as though it is the end of the world because you have said something they find racist or insulting to other people when its not. We need to stamp out this growing fungus of PC before we are to afraid to say anything in case one of these idiots thinks it is offensive.

Some people are perpetually offended.  It's just the way they are.  I feel sorry for them, their lives must be void of any excitement.

No, what is so offensive is that people think that they can be gratuitiously offensive to people because they simply do not agree with their lifestyle or viewpoint, being PC is about being sensitive to others, what is so terrible about that.

We do not have free speech anymore, that's the problem...taking the mickey out of religion is perfectly in order "life of brian" offended many but they were right to make it,  Boris had every right to say what he did in a free society, some will be "pretend" offended but it does not mean you have to say sorry.

Was  it voltaire??? "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it."

Well let’s test that shall we, what if I say I find many comments made on this website by posters to be racist, xenophobic and deniers of scientific evidence of climate  change occasioned by human action, I find it laughable that they support the likes of Trump.

Free speech. They have also a right to say Obama was a complete waste of time and that Nelson Mandela was a corrupt leader who caused far more problems than he solved.

I’m not quite sure you can use life of Brian as an example. You would be as well saying that it’s ok to be racist because they did it in love thy neighbour

It’s just not acceptable any more and rightly so

Its not OK to be racist thats a given, I am talking about free speech, boris johnsons comments were not racist and in a country with free speech he was allowed to say what he thought and rightly so, they do look like pillar boxes.

Of course they weren’t racist but they were highly offensive.

Your opinion and you are entitled to, same as my opinion of Mandela being a murderer and corrupt leader of his party who caused all the problems we have in SA today.

Highly offensive? are you joking.

You say Boris is a buffon but if I say Mandela was corrupt and and a puppet leader you start giving abuse. This is exactly my point, you got angry so quickly...

Boris Johnson is in my opinion a very very intelligent man with an agenda, he is playing the public and the Tory party like an instrument.

Mate I’m not angry in the slightest. I’ve read many of your posts on here so I know what you stand for I personally think you are wrong but hey ho

My point is that people are entitled to live their lives and follow their beliefs without ridicule. Especially from a so called public figure

If you can’t get your head around that fact well like I say it says a lot about you

But they do look like post boxes, what he said was OK in a country with free speech, I am glad he has refused to apologise to the baying "pretend" outrage.

And what  exactly does it say about me? I am a racist in your eyes because you dont agree with my opinions.
