  • many people are offensive && the things they say are meant to be taken that way then peopl realize that a lot of things could be an insult
  • Because they are abunch of pussys
  • How dare you ask me that question?! Why you $%*^&%*@##$#%%&$$&*&*%%##@$!!!!;)
  • Because they are sexually repressed.
  • haven't people always gotten offended easily?
  • They lack gonads, figuratively speaking.
  • They have very low self esteem and take every word in the worst possible way. Overpopulation has put the entire world on edge.
  • Because we are supposed to be - what if something offends me - then I can sue for a million bucks and live happily ever after some poor shcmuck said something stupid to me.
  • Those that do are thin-skinned, insecure, lack of self confidence, jealous, or hurting inside.
  • I'm not sure if they're more easily offended nowadays, but especially online it's easier to vent about being offended. You don't have to sit with the person who offended you right in front of you, and you don't have to sit through dinner or drinks after you've expressed how offended you are. So, basically, I think it's just logistics.
  • Pansies. Everyone thinks they are special....But it also depends on what you are saying. I have had a white guy call me the N word and he seriously had no idea how offensive it was lol. He just didn't no any better apparently, some people aren't trained in etiquette, so they go out into the real world and don't know how to interact as well.
  • They are insecure and they take everything up in the butt. Like this one girl called me some stuff that seemed offensive but I didnt really care because its not worth being angry for. So when passing by her I told her something she didnt like and for some reason everybody heard and laughed and she started to throw a fit that just made my day. :)
  • Cry babies
  • Wooses
  • What do you mean? I'm not defensive! Screw you! Ha, no but really, insecurity, oversensitivity, a lot of times stress, anxiety, and other things that they're worried about that can transfer into their emotions towards other. At least that's what happens to me.
  • cannot take constructive criticism and do not have self confidence.
  • I think that those who offend easily just don't know how to separate feelings of frustration about other things from the topic at hand. I'm almost impossible to offend, although it is fairly easy to hurt my feelings.
  • Yes, look at society as a whole, this is definitely a trend in wealthy countries. It is related to too much meat in the diet. These are foods derived from violent deaths and by eating the remains of violence, they become one. They are what they eat. Consequently they are easily offended and become hateful and aggressive to one another as a result. From these bad changes on the individual level also comes the resulting continuous hopeless struggle of nations and human rights activists to achieve world peace.
  • They're big babies.
  • Times are hard and tempers are short.
  • I think it's just easier to walk around and be mad at everyone than to just let little stupid things go. Don't know what I did to my husband's sister but she threw me off her "Friends" list on Facebook. Actually in retrospect, it was a blessing. Here is a quote from the good book. 8 Better is the end afterward of a matter than its beginning. Better is one who is patient than one who is haughty in spirit. 9 Do not hurry yourself in your spirit to become offended, for the taking of offense is what rests in the bosom of the stupid ones. Ecclesiates 7:8.9 Oh... this reminds me of a line from a Billy Joel song.... "It's easier to hate than to wait anymore....." An Innocent Man
  • People are pussies these days. Fuck 'em.
  • Because their egos have been inflated by nothing but hot air. The slightest little pin prick and they burst.
  • When things get hard, such as economic pressure, feeling insecure, people turn to be temperamental.
  • Some people are just to sensitive that some of them can't take a joke.
  • 'cause people are so whiney and sensitive today.. you gotta be tough. When someone says something rude or offensive..I just shrug it off or say somthing back. If someone doesn't like me its their problem not mine.
  • Mm, I don't notice it too much, sometimes I get the occasional overly sensitive person..but I thought that times were less up-tight now. I mean, look at shows like Family Guy. People poke fun at alot more things now than when they did like 10 years ago. Maybe even 5.
  • Cause they were taught by mommy & daddy how perfect and wonderfull they are and they couldn't do wrong and when someone states a fact about the person regardless of how obvious it is, they're first defense is "How dare you! You don't know me!".
  • WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY THAT??? OMG T_T you are so mean. I'm not talking to you ever again.
  • I think it's the fact that we deal with so many more strangers than we did earlier in American history. The fact that I grew up in a small town and now live in a big city probably colors my perception. I suspect it's a side effect of the fact there are so many more possibilities for people to not understand each other, combined with the fact that when someone says something to offend them, they don't have the social pressure of knowing they're going to see that person the next day in the grocery store, or at church, or at their kid's baseball games, to keep their disagreements polite.
  • Cause it's an inexpensive way to add spice to the complaining and preaching they equally do so easily these days.
  • Leverage.
