Are you offended by racist comments or homophobic comments or sexist comments or do you not care if its not about your particular "group" I came across some offensive content online doing a task, insensitive definitely, racist...hmmm debatable but I complained in a support ticket but the owners of the content were pretty nonchalant about it almost to the point of not caring. I didn't think it would be too much to remove the offensive content but I guess it is

I'm not easily offended, whether it concerns me or not. I think sensitivity is a fad nowadays, everyone is so easily offended about every little thing. As adults we have to realize that we're not going to agree with everything everybody says and does.

yes that's true but you don't expect to be offended in certain situations, if im at a library and its a children's reading session then I don't expect the person reading to the kids to pull out atlas shrugged or Mien Kampf. There is a level of courtesy and professionalism I expect in certain situations is all im saying why include something that's questionable in the way it could be perceived.

@tomford Yes, it does depend on the situation. There's a fine line between exercising free speech, and just plain being inappropriate.

Yes I am frequently offended by things about groups I don't belong to.
