I often wonder why a lot of people get offended at various things that come up during conversation, in the news, on television or elsewhere. Personally, it takes me a lot to get offended. Im able to laugh at jokes about everyone and everything, even the highly controversial. Shows like South Park and Family Guy make fun of everyting: politics, sex, religion, women, minorities, mentally and physically challenged and those shows are celebrated and accepted. The UFC glorifies violence and that doesnt bother me in the least. Then again, lots of people got offended seeing Janet Jacksons nipple during the SuperBowl. I never quite understood why violence, especially with Americans, is praised while sexuality is to be treated like something shameful and terrible. My question is this: what does it take to offend you?
Does that annoy you more than someone feeling that way but lying to be socially accepted? As repulsive as those thoughts are, and I agree that they're horrible, isn't it at least good that they're being honest?
The atheist in me finds it just delicious that you're using religion to justify hate, though. Not trying to offend, just being honest.
I'm annoyed/offended by comments like that.
In addition to that, I also take great offense to intentional/conscious ignorance, disrespect, and arrogance. The idea that anyone is in any way shape or form superior to another. Just general wrong usually offends me, but those things prior stated particularly make me cringe.
Also my emotionally and comically inept college friends who seem to never get tired of rude and stupid jokes about my mother or my religious heritage.....sometimes I wonder about the fate of mankind.

"Excellent choice-the bottle alone is worth the price of admission (love that old-school Victorian look). It's a pretty smooth rum, too-very nice vanilla overtones, almost silky.
