Are You Offended By People Being Offended?
This is 2 minutes of your time that you will find highly valuable. John Cleese hits the nail on the head with this one. With statements like 'being protected by uncomfortable emotion' and 'if people can't control their own emotions, then they have to start trying to control other's behavior'. All very good points.
We've become a society where a person is afraid to breathe without offending someone. Granted, there are circumstances where people can't defend themselves and therefor require others to stand up for them. But we really are now just nit picking on everything.
Without a doubt...I have a feeling...this WILL offend someone. Cheers.
