It may indeed. We all have different tastes, find different things nice, nasty, tasteful, tacky, funny, offensive, clever, stupid....What may offend one person may just be like water off a ducks back to someone else,
The question is do you care if you are being offensive to someone, do you like to go out of your way to be deliberately offensive, and do you actually believe that nobody can ever, genuinely be offended by anything and that if they say they are it's all an act?it all depends how receptive to being offended they are or maybe it is something they switch on / off to suit their needs.
I advise you not to say that, unless you want to be wrong.I would say that you are probably young, too young to have lived the seventies or eighties so do not really know what offence really is.
No - I don't think that people who were abused, insulted, discriminated against, because of the colour of their skin or their sexual orientation, for example, forgot about it.They were when anything went and people said what they thought, maybe someone got offended but once the spat was over it was shake hands and back to normal, all forgotten with
How many examples of failed defences that we see to this day along the lines of "it was just bantz" do you have to witness before you get it?
A badge eagerly clamoured after by some people here who complain because they won't even tolerate simple, reasonable, questions.unlike today where it is almost like a badge of honor to be offended and complain to anyone who will listen.
