Because that worked out really well for Kurt Cobain. Seriously, if you weren't exactly cognizant (and you weren't, if you're really 27), don't comment on Nirvana. It was an age that you were not a part of and therefore, can't comprehend.


Thats right all historians cant comment on history cause they weren't there.

Looking at Cobain through the angle of which he presented himself in the 90s is a terrible idea given to how much the dude was prone to lying about everything(ask Buzz Osborne).

You must not listen to much music my friend, lol. There are a lot of bands like that now.

Nirvana was alright, Kurt Cobain was alright. Real "anger channeling" comes from more hardcore/punk or metal music, where the emphasis isn't on skill or structure just playing hard, fast, and having a "message"..

Sometimes I feel like it's not about being sensitive.... more about being overly opinionated. More or less thinking there opinion is going to be of more value than someone else. .. Also overly voicing that opinion.

(I realize the irony)

everything can be seen as a joke, even something that's hurtful and not at all funny. It's just a bad joke

If there's one thing I've learned it's that you can't say anything without offending somebody so I just try and ignore people who get their knickers in a twist over trivial things. Seriously, only yesterday I witnessed a game called 'Sonic Dreams Collection'. It was pretty weird, and I commented on finding it really fucking strange, to which some guy went off on one saying 'It was just made by a regular guy, it's a fucking game, I'm sick of seeing people being like 'lol dis iz teh randumbest game ever'' this guy was going off on a full lengthy paragraph against me because I found the concept of a guy using game software to make something so strange funny. I was just trying to make a little joke and he went mental.

So yeah, I just don't bother with them, if you'd rather complain and bring people down than play along with something harmless I don't want to deal with you. You know, I heard someone say 'Before you post something ranty on the internet, give it half an hour, maybe go for a walk. If you come back and no longer want to type what you had to say, it was probably a stupid idea to type it in the first place'. I feel more people could do with a walk or a chance to cool their head sometimes, because I think they're too susceptible to being caught up in a flurry of emotion and needlessly explode at everyone. Seriously, if something a stranger said on the internet (especially if it's completely harmless) is what ruins your day, then I honestly don't know what to say.

Yup, it's hard to say or do anything nowadays without having some arsehole feeling personally afflicted (even though it wasn't even directed at said individual). I feel that too many people have a desire to feel important, correct and dominant all the time no matter the matter at hand. If they don't like what you say or do, you're "a terrible, horrible monster and you shouldn't be allowed to live! How dare you (insert action here) I am offended!" Now sure, there are lines I.E. horrible acts against humanity, animals etc that people SHOULD feel offended by...However when you just want to hold hands with your spouse (gay/straight) or give them a kiss in public and suddenly you're being yelled at by some angry dick who is feeling violated by your devil acts, somethings gotta give. (Not a personal story, by the way just an example of what I've seen.)

That's just the tip of the iceberg I know, there are a lot of issues out yonder-but how many of them are justifiable? Like said above, it all comes down to opinions and being over opinionated. I feel if someone does something that isn't affecting you in any way and isn't a serious subject then shut your mouth. If you don't like it you have the choice to look the other way.

Irony I know, maybe I'm right or wrong. This is just how I react to it all. :)

Whenever someone goes off, i just drift off. If it's written, i overlook anything i feel is irrelevant and only address what i deem important. I have to take control otherwise id end up making the mistake most people fall into which is trying to correct someone. That's not my job.

I think most of these people who cry "offense" think that they are special snowflakes who need love and attention (Whoops, I meant "affection", sorry if that offended anyone!!)

all joking aside, I think it is also a need to feel right and correct. Add the generally liberal view of today's media and emotionally insecure young people, with just a sprinkle of tumblr and sjw's, and you have a recipe for a politically correct generation.

Correct. History is written through the eyes of the victor. What historians are often looking at is a watered down version of what happened, often through the eyes of earlier Americans, who had a biased view. To accept one historian's view of the past as being the only truth out there is a fallacy.


Looking at Cobain through the angle of which he presented himself in the 90s is a terrible idea given to how much the dude was prone to lying about everything(ask Buzz Osborne).


Cobain's personal choices notwithstanding, the late 1980s was not as dark of a time as he portrayed. There was plenty of good stuff along with the bad. You know, sorta like every era ever.

It begs the question,why are you so insensitive?Perceptions on what constitutes" politically correct" and 'reasonable" are changing quickly and fueled by the internet.We are much closer globally than anytime in history and the quick changes in " public" perception" will become increasingly frequent.

want to hear a joke guys..








....you!



Jokes aside most people will take offence to anything that being said i would be a hypocrite if i said i haven't been sensitive before.

People were making fun of Autism and people with it one day and as someone with Autism...that hurt and honestly if it wasn't over the net i probably would have punched them in the face and kicked them in the balls for refusing to stop being pricks.

People need to stop being sensetives about jokes etc if it's not hurting anyone else but if it is they should be careful with there actions.

Let's be honest a professional comedian accrues a fan base and knows their audience (knows the room). If you are just spouting off nonsense in public trying to give your mates to laugh, you ultimately risk offending someone who is not on board with your antics. Personally, I can enjoy any comedy as long as it's clever. If your humor has the subtlety of a 12 yo in a video game lobby, it's probably not that people are sensitive, but that you're just not funny.
