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



That may or may not happen. Everything has consequences.

The whole worlds gone overboard with political correctness, America just happens to be where most of the loons supporting such extreme political correctness are concentrated. And most of the loons supporting it outside the west are STILL heavily Americacentric in what they declare their "justice".

I think so. Many people get offended over the smallest things nowadays.

America has always been so easily offended. That's why if the end of the world happens it will probably be because the US overreacts to something

Frankly, I could ask the same question about another old chestnut of treat others the way you'd want to be treated.

I think America has always seemed to be offended by everything. But with the rise of social media within the past ten years, it's just become more apparent and "in our faces".

Yeah. It's so hard. Sometimes people call us mean names on the internet. We're so much more oppressed than everyone else! Starving children in Africa pity our position in life.

I don't believe that an entire society can be categorized as "easily offended," especially, as each person within it differs, and with the size of the United States. It is more applicable to groups of people that have sensitive ideologies or beliefs and people who feel oppressed

yes, in fact America is a No fun allowed zone, if you are caught having fun you will go to jail because you could have offended someone

one time I got a warning from the cops for having fun, next time I'll be going to the slammer
