"offensive"

This fact probably does not come as a complete surprise to many of my readers: I sometimes write posts INTENDED to offend people. I seek to push a few sensitivity buttons, set off some outrage alarms and generate a bunch of horrified gasps in my audience. I do it DELIBERATELY. On PURPOSE. I get my sick jollies that way, especially when my plan works.

I don't have to put a lot of effort into achieving my goal, either. It's EASY to do, because people are so EASILY offended today. (Just saying that people are easily offended today probably offended somebody.) We are taught to find offense even if we really have to look hard for it. Even if we have to be semi-illiterate to find it.

Americans once were proud and defiant (Don't Tread on ME!); now, Americans are spineless and pouty (You Hurt My FEEEEEEELINGS! Woe, woe, woe FEEEEELINGS!). I blame hormonal wimmen, delusional Democrats and greedy lawyers--- the Three-Pronged Fork of Fucktards--- for this pathetic mutation in our culture. The whiners, the wheedlers and the weasels combined to define "offensive" at its lowest common denominator: anything that might possibly, under ANY circumstances, upset the delicate mental balance of the most neurotic, unbalanced individual among us.

Certain exceptions to the rule exist just to make the rule more baffling. You may fling all the dung you want to hurl at Christians, Conservatives and white Southern men. You may even fling dung at a black woman, if she happens to be Secretary of State in the Bush administration. But you'd better be careful outside of those exceptions, lest flung dung blow right back in your insensitive face.

Sure, the rule makes no sense. It's not supposed to. It's an EMOTIONAL thing and emotion trumps logic every time in this game. Political correctness is more important than good sense in deciding what is offensive anymore. You shouldn't be judgmental. (Especially not when you're actually being judgmental.)

And THAT idea offends ME. Almost as much as this does.

I know the feeling exactly

Given your continued positive movement toward sensibility with regard to the idiocy called "government," tune your fave guitar and play along.

Gasp!

Don't blame hormonal wimmin, just blame stupid, selfish, bitchy hormonal wimmin...some of us manage to keep ourselves together in spite of those damn things (homones)! ; )

Don't be niggardly with your feelings, there, son!
Fuck the Yates, both of 'em oughta be tied together in in a big bag and tossed in a swamp somewhere. He's worse than she is -- he knew she was a nut case and kept knocking her up anyway. How fucking manly of him. Asshole.

Blow me. If you think Clevelanders are the pussies described in your post, pick a time and a place. Am not French and have 2 tours RVN 69-71. If y'all think you can tread on us....... White Northern men protect black women because it's the right thing to do. Or green women. Or bloody aliens when Cpt. Kirk is around...

Y'all DON'T have a patent on honor....

"Three-Pronged Fork of Fucktards"...

That, sir, is an instant classic.

Grumpy Old Ham stole my comment! I was thinking the exact same thing.

This kind of writing is why I like you Acidman!

Wah wah, the shrill cry of the endangered Southern white male.

You dickwads have had it your way for a few centuries at least. But let the shit hit YOU and you're the first ones to start warbling about political correctness. Now THAT's offensive...and oh so ironic, don't you think?
