Wow, some of us need to grow a little thicker skin!

Since when is EVERYONE supposed to walk on eggshells so that they do not inadvertently offend someone?

Have we become SOOO PC that we're not allowed individual opinions anymore, nor the right to speak them clearly without fear of retribution?

  • I know, right? PC is such a ridiculous concept! The Constitution of the United States does NOT give you freedom from being offended and it never will!!

  • I think the difference comes from being intentionally offensive. Being an ass doesn't make you opinionated, it makes you rude. It's not about walking on eggshells, its called manners. An example could be as simple as not using the R word around a mother of a child with special needs.

  • I always offend someone, I stopped caring a long time ago, it just shows how insecure in the decisions they have made or believe in.

  • I agree that people should grow a thinker skin, but what you said to that woman in the big christian families question WAS rude and uncalled for. Like Ginger said, there is a difference in having a different opinion and being rude on purpose.

  • i think that there is a difference from "tough skin" and all out C bombs about some things, i think everyone should have tact when answering, you catch more flies with honey then with vinegar
