I think your only listening to the loudest people in the room and assume everyone is like that.
you know why the only people you hear cry about everything? because people who don't care and don't cry don't make YouTube videos about how they don't cry. and if they did, you wouldn't watch it cause it's boring.
that's not what I mean. just saying past generations were less sensitive than now. now a days everyone's crying about everything more often lol
So if you say a woman is bleeding from her eyes, from here... whatever, you think she is being overly sensitive to be offended? Not everyone is a "marshmallow", some people just refuse to tolerate bullies.
What kind of privilege are you talking about?
I'm saying your generalizing.
I'm just saying people are like marsgmellows now
Both are true. People can handle opinions as a whole, it's easier though to express those opinions and have people work with you to make those expressed opinions imposed on others. Also, some people don't do anything with their opinions, while others feel their opinions are important. So important that dissenting opinions don't provide grounds to even argue on.
We can't say that opinions are a small thing though, collective opinions get things done and stop things from happening. Though, once it gets into territory of preference some opinions expressed are actually calls to action, which demand a response. If opinions do not demand responses, or the reaction to an opinion that doesn't demand a response is overkill, that is when opinions become an issue.
In short, people can have a right to be offended by an opinion if it demands action, though some cases do demand action and offensiveness is outweighed by the importance of the issue (example, if you are morbidly obese, your body is not healthy. Therefore, the prompt, "lose weight, or you will die" is important regardless if it is offensive.) And the collective pressures of opinions tend to go beyond the opinion itself and take root in other parts of interaction because polarizing opinions become stronger.
Yet at the same time, being offended isn't a large issue. Being disgusted, loathing, or any other detestable feeling can receive an appropriate response, but offensiveness is now put on this level, despite how minor an off-putting thought is.
People definitely make money this way, because attention demands time, and time is money (not used right, but in a different sense it is correct).
Does everyone want to be a victim or flawless? Not everyone, but a vocal few do.
Do people have fair standing to say an offensive comment is off putting? Certainly, but upplaying it does no good.
Are we allowed to be offensive if it is the only way to say the truth? Yes! But it should not be a regular occurance, and used sparingly.
Not even people just can't handle opinions.
While there are people who make a living out of being offended, there also seems to be people who intentionally are offensive so that they can claim others are too sensitive.
