    Sorry, but the term "mutt" is offensive. We prefer the term "breed-challenged".

    Check your privilege. Thanks.

    Something that irritates me is when X announces that they are offended and Y (usually a "celebrity" or a politician) goes into groveling-apology mode. I long to hear some-one say "Oh get over yourself!"

    Being a Satanist, I have to admit that the Bible was right. The meek (the frail, easily offended, trigger warning defenders) will inherit the earth.

She pretty much said since her mother was ridiculed for wearing it, she is offended when she sees white chic wear it and not get harassed as her mother did. In essence her past with this jewelry is clouded with a sensitive history.

    Sister, that's not my history. You can be offended. But that word is not a stop word. The history you have is not my history. I can understand people being offended over things. Because each of us has our own emotional back story. But just because you got raped by a guy in a diet dr pepper costume doesn't mean I have to give up my drink.

    I'm being snarky. Because I'm so fed up with people being offended. Go on. Be offended. Who the eff cares?

    This isn't about appropriation. It's about the idea of being offended. And when that meant action had to be done by people who are complete and utter strangers. I mean I'm offended by dumb people. But there they are. Everywhere. What's a gal to do.

    Have you ever used that phrase 'I'm offended' and wanted someone to change something because of how you felt? Or is there a place for when being offended means everyone around you has to change? Gimme your views!
    I'm not sure what this debate is about. Can you explain a bit more please?

    By the looks I get walking in public places, you best bet I'm offending many people just with my attire
    never changed me though, a wolf doesn't take note on the common opinion of sheep.
    "In the shade now tall forms are advancing,
    And their wan hands like snowflakes in the moonlight are gleaming;
    They beckon, they whisper, 'Oh! strong armed in valor,
    The pale guests await thee - mead foams in Valhalla.'"

    Who's the wolf, and who's the sheep, and who decides which is which?
    Those who have suffered understand suffering and therefore extend their hand.

    I can't do everything, but I can do something.
