More philosophy than a hot topic, but I've seen it come up as a key divisive issue in several posts recently.
Nobody can make you feel anything. You are responsible for your own reactions to what they do. So nothing should be considered offensive.
If someone abuses you and you stay, then you are responsible for what happens next.
If you walk alone at night in a shady neighbourhood wearing a short skirt, despite thinking that increases your chances of being raped, then you are the sole one responsible for the consequences of your own actions.
If a 4 year old shoots a 2 year old with a gun left out by a parent, that's the fault of the parent, not the fault of the gun, or a culture that encourages keeping guns at home for self-defence.
If someone has an opportunity to get a higher education by going massively into debt, and doesn't take that opportunity, they are responsible for ending up a truck driver instead of a high paid lawyer, and have no claim on the income of that lawyer, even if lawyers, on average, get a better start and more financial aid from their parents than, on average, the people who ended up as truck drivers.
If someone is raised in a neighbourhood with high crime, high single parenthood, high drugs, low income, poor schools, etc. then they are still, when they reach the age of 18, just as responsible for their actions as any other adult AND THEREFORE none of those factors are in any way to blame for the outcome of that person's life, and they are not worth fixing since they don't cause problems.
If someone is foolish enough to go into a cult, go to a loan shark, get addicted to drugs, take out a mortgage they can't afford to pay back, or anything else that a sensible well informed person wouldn't do, then they are solely responsible for the consequences and government should avoid sticking its nose into people's affairs by trying to ban the sale or promotion of such activities.
What do you think about responsibility? What is it? Who should take it, when and for what? What are the implications of one person taking responsibility for an action, when other people also helped cause it or could have prevented it, or intentionally tried to put the person in a situation with few options? If someone smarter than you tricks you, do they bear no responsibility? Should society reward that?
