I don't get offended. I'm an adult in control of my emotions, not a petulant crybaby.

"I'm offended", "that's offensive" means that I've just identified someone I can bully and not take seriously.

How's that working out for you?

Just because somebody is offended by something, that doesn't make it right to bully them.

Everyone is offended by something, you just handle it like a mature adult.

Lately, people who cry censorship when they are just being absolute dicks to communities. We get it, they deleted your post. Maybe be a dick in a sub that accepts you being a dick.

But since that line is relative, why not to leave that decision to an actual community. It seems to me as a design flaw of Voat that not everyone can downvote.

Getting offended by things is childish and pathetic. If something really bothers you, do something about it or stfu. However, things people do can annoy me, but that is about the end of it.

How is getting offended childish? As an example, if I go up to a black person and spout some white supremacist shit, they're likely to get offended, and rightly so.

However, getting offended over petty shit is childish.

Offence is never given, only taken.

People call me all sorts of things, but it doesn't offend me. Or bother me at all. It doesn't even register aside from that interaction.

It's called "being an adult".

How does "being offended" change or help the situation at all? Letting you get under his skin is exactly what you are looking for. It's childish because thats how children solve their problems, they complain to their moms and friends about how they don't like what others did or said. As an adult, I don't see any point in it.

@paxNoctis really needs to be more mature. He shouldn't talk like that since it may upset people.

The only thing that offends me is the amount of clout socially and emotionally retarded people from the internet have in real life. The weirdest, most unstable mother fuckers you've ever met sit around with like minded individuals shedding crocodile tears about made up trespasses and their outrage knows no bounds. Get a couple of the weirdest people from every town in America and you've got yourself a hundred thousand man social movement!

Edit: After reading another post, I'm thinking "offends" should probably be replaced with "annoys" in that little tirade.

After reading some of the comments, I think "offend" was a bad choice of word. I was looking to ask what really annoyed people, and thought "offend" would do the trick.

What annoys me is people who get offended.

People that get offended easily should be offended. Read that once and boy it may not even be right but it's a hell of a lot of fun.

I swear, some people will get offended even if you have the exact same beliefs as them but is not using the same words to explain ti.

The worst is when I let myself get sucked into the conversation cycle of going round and round with a person that is arguing for no reason, and I am saying the same thing. Maybe I am just bad at communicating? ... nah, they suck.

I don't really get offended, but I get annoyed at times. Mostly at double standards.
