    I saw a young lady the other day who brought up a great point about being offended.

    As she accurately pointed out, many people will say "that's offensive" when they should be saying "I'm offended" instead. You see that a lot here.

    At the rate we're going, some day the word that the PGA uses to determine a golfer's strength will bring on lawsuits. Handicaps will become ASTP (average strokes to par) and statues of Bobby Jones, Ben Hogan, Arnie and Jack will be pulled down. The Tiger statues will be okay.

    And forget about the name Patriot. I can think of a few folks, even here, who "think" that word represents evil and oppression. Hell, half the team probably "thinks" that way.

    In the end, people can feel offended all they want, but no person has a right to tell another person what they should be offended about. I find those people to be the most offensive of all.

    Similarly, the idea of "censorship" needs to be examined. Is it really censorship if someone tells you what you said is stupid? Because that's the context I see the word invoked most often.

    I'm not offended by anything.........let it all burn until the bigots go back into hiding

    this is the 'woe is me' bullcrap being thrown around these days........

    Tucker Carlson: 'waaaa......waaaa......NYT is going to publish my address'
    NYT: 'no we weren't'
    Tucker Carlson: 'waaaa.......waaaa......NYT was going to publish my address'
    NYT: 'no we weren't'

    the right is depending on making BS crap because it's all they have

    Funny, not one word was said in this thread about political orientation - right, left, centrist...until one of the Patsfans resident leftists introduced it...says much about the left....

    Weird how you believe one person’s opinion represents all individuals on the left.

    No! You’re offended. And I’m offended. We are offended. But it’s not offensive. That young lady the OP saw said so

    Why does political correctness stuff bother you so much? For me, I don't like it but also don't really care very much. Am I offended? Nope. It seems you are indeed the other side of the same coin, railing about things that probably effect your daily life 0.00001% of the time, unless you are, like the people you're against, constantly thinking about it and looking for it.

    It’s the same stupid mindset that if you disagree with trump or his lackeys, you’re from the left.

    I’m more of a capitalist and fiscal conservative than any of these clowns.....thing is that how someone else handles their financial matters is not my problem, even if it means my taxes are higher to help the marginalized

    Do you think this part of the OP was non-partisan? "At the rate we're going, some day the word that the PGA uses to determine a golfer's strength will bring on lawsuits. Handicaps will become ASTP (average strokes to par) and statues of Bobby Jones, Ben Hogan, Arnie and Jack will be pulled down. The Tiger statues will be okay."

    Seems a bit disingenuous to call out a "left leaning" opinion, while ignoring the "right leaning" opinion.

    Some in political discussions here at PatsFans incorrectly identify others as left democrat
    and right republican .... the images below can greatly correct those views. We have and have had libertarians here ... they cannot be placed in a box - they are all different.
