Excuse me motherfucker? I'll have you that I'm a stonekin and that expression is very offensive to me. As a nonliving object with no capacity for thought whatsoever, I have never contemplated breaking someone's bones in my life. Check your privilege and stop culturally appropriating us rocks.


Im with this guy. Seriously, We have feelings too! We just can't think about them.

I think so. I see a lot of people going out of their way to be offended. Things that no one would complain about before are all of a sudden the worst thing on the planet. You have a right to be offended but hurt feelings don't give people to right to censor another person's artwork, or ruin that person's life etc.

Its not people being offended that is the problem. Its people demanding others change in order to remedy this "offense". You are free to feel however you want, but don't try to restrict other people's freedoms and pretend that it is in any way justified if your skin is paper thin.

Yeah, people these days get offended by everything. I support their right to be upset, however I don't think society should have to bend over backwards to please them.

Everything now is offensive--such was wishing people Happy Holidays and such. Yeah, I get that that not all celebrate, but please, there's so much sanitation going around that it just strips off the joy of the season.

America has truly gotten soft in recent years. Makes me tempted to vote for Trump, but I have a feeling that will be a regretful choice.

Yes it is. But that doesn't mean you still won't get punched in the mouth.

Yep. Well, words are powerful. They hurt more than we think.


But it is seriously getting ridiculous when everything is a so-called 'trigger' to someone. You can't even make an innocent mistake online anymore because someone will instantly come at you for being racist/misogynist/fillintheblank or 'OMG TRIGGER WARNING!!!' or some other nonsense.

The people who get offended at the "Ess-Jay-Duble-yuuys" are in my view the people who need to get over themselves.
