No, he's saying that instead of saying "I am offended by that" you should stand up for yourself, counterpunch, have a damn discussion, and stop being a bitch by trying to cop out with "I'm offended"

Well, there's this thing called empathy, and it involves caring about other people besides yourself being happy. It's kind of a big thing.

That's exactly how I feel if anyone ever says "That's racist" to me. MFW they tell me that.

I don't think you are quite getting point here darling.

I know. I'm kinda tired of black people where I live going "Oh, that's offensive" to every little thing.

Dude, I'm black too...and I found that funny. Sit your ass down and have a laugh for once.

Getting offended is completely down to someone's cognitive psychology. They might perceive it one way and get offended, but there are almost an infinite number of other ways you could perceive it. Just because you feel some way, doesn't mean that feeling is correct or justified. Its just your reaction to it.

Here's an example. You're black. Someone white calls someone black " ****** " on TV. You could get offended and angry. You could also just shrug it off. Its just ridiculous to think you're deserving of special treatment or sympathy just because you took something the wrong way.

The point of this quote isn't that people can't or shouldn't be offended, it's that they shouldn't use that as a cop-out to end a conversation, rather they should make their own counterpoints and discuss like an adult exactly what their issues are.  Just blithely saying "I'm offended" and expecting others to give a crap is arrogant in the extreme.

Just because someone might find something offensive doesn't mean they have to be faggots about it.

"I see." would cause a whole ****** lot less butthurt than "Well, so ******* what."

Also that dude looks like he injected an entire train in the face.

I've never taken injection drugs, but I would like to inject a train.

I agree with that guy, all this political corectness is going way too far, one can't even express his opinion freely without someone taking offense.

With that said, if someone made a homophobic joke, would he still follow this rule?

Thank god. Now I have something to quote every time I hear or see butthurt.

"Saying 'i'm offended' is the same as saying 'i cant control my emotions so you must control it for me'"

Of course it has it's reason and purpose.... What a silly thing to say that it doesn't. It indicates that someone is not comfortable something, just like pain indicates that something isn't comfortable. If I'm at the dentist or hairdresser and I say "ow!", that has a meaning! If it wasn't for the "ow!", the hairdresser or dentist might continue on doing what you're not comfortable with. Same goes for "I'm offended". Many people might use the phrase "I'm offended" for little purpose, but that doesn't mean that the phrase itself has no purpose.

A whine can have a purpose, so can complaints. Not that I'm trying to justify all whining and complaining.
