But, if I do, check your pulse. If your heart is still beating, you'll live.


Seriously, though. I feel like people are too quick to get offended simply because someone doesn't agree with their lifestyle.



[note from mod: I've reopened this, but in a desire to keep the thread open without messing up the order of posts, or having to individually weigh the appropriateness of each and every sentence of each and every post (several of which are rather entangled in give and take discussion), I have not at this time deleted any posts even though some do show a lack of respect.

From now on when responding please keep a polite tone, don't insult each other, and please stay focused on the topic.

The OP has expressed that he feels that "people are too quick to get offended simply because someone doesn't agree with their lifestyle."

The obvious discussion question that arises from this assertion is:

Do you agree that people are too quick to get offended when someone expresses disagreement with how they live their lives?

And by extension: why do you agree or not agree? Why do you think people get offended? Do you think some things are more worth getting offended about than other things, and how much do your opinions about a specific issue affect your judgment of whether or not people are getting offended too quickly or easily? What do you think is meant by "get offended"? Are people who think people get offended easily, themselves getting offended by others getting offended? Etc.

If you are bringing up specific issues as examples, please be sure to tie them into the overarching point of this thread (people getting offended; people thinking people get offended too easily) rather than using this thread as a place for discussing those specific issues.]

I agree. At the same time, they can live however they please, and that should be respected. There must be a balance to it. You can't shove it down others' throats, and you can't tell them they can't life how they choose. Or that's how it should be.

Let's agree to disagree
Just like the Federalist and Democratic-Republican parties.

Agreed. I have no right to tell others how to live their life as long as it doesn't force me and my children to live as they choose.

Fair enough. I don't understand your line of thinking, but fair enough.

Its not a matter of belief. Its a matter of science. LGBT is not a "lifestyle". You yourself have been arguing this basis in the other thread. You can't have it both ways. It can't be both a "lifestyle" and a mental illness/disorder.

I'm not upset, I'm just informing you that you're being a dick. For someone thats been constantly protesting you aren't a bigot, transphobe, etc etc you sure do quack like a duck. Creating an entirely new topic about it is venturing dangerously close to "doth protest too much" territory. ;p
