I want to take a moment to reflect on the commonly held belief of today's society, which is that we should (somehow) be free from ever being Offended by what someone else says.
BZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ!!!! WRONG ANSWER!!!!!!!
But we Thank You for playing, "You Bet Your Life!"
Frankly, if you want to make certain that you're never offended by anyone else's comments, I have a solution for you. Suck It Up, Buttercup. Go live in a cave, throw away all your electronics, delete all your social media profiles, and become a fucking HERMIT. Because becoming a hermit is what it's going to take to avoid ever being offended by someone else's opinion.
I'm a tad fed up with the whole political correctness crap. I've been fed up with it for a while.
The most recent helping of BS via the college campuses is that these whiny, spoiled rich brats - and don't make any mistake, that's what all of them are, regardless of color, religion, sexual preference, or political stance.... spoiled brat rich kids who've never had an actual hard day in their freaking Lives - is that they want "Safe Spaces" where no one else is allowed to exercise their 1st amendment right of Freedom of Speech.
They talk a lot about "microaggressions" being committed against them. In reality, the only aggression is that someone disagreed with them, didn't coddle them, or didn't pat them on the head and tell them how Special they are. And of course, there's the aggression of them becoming violent protesters because the person who disagreed wasn't suddenly forced to apologize and then get their mouth duck taped shut.
Get real and get a life, you self absorbed lot of useless wankers. If you want to see what Aggression is like, try taking a trip to any of Dozens of countries where you Have No Rights, and can be jailed or killed for being the wrong gender, sexual preference, religion, or made the mistake of speaking out against the current regime.
Go - please - travel the world. Learn what REAL oppression is like. Then come back here, and see whether you still feel Oppressed and like people are being Aggressive against you.
