I hate how over-sensitive our culture has become, and how everything is offensive, and how we have to cater to every single retard who gets offended at everything. We can’t even use proper words anymore, what the fuck? Let me give you some examples.
Retard - means “a person with a mental disability”. There is nothing offensive about it. It comes from French (retarder) and implies the person is slow, which is correct. It is a descriptive word. But oh no, descriptive words are offensive! Let’s call them “special” or “exceptional”, so nobody gets butthurt. Fuck that. Those two words should be used for people who achieve something great as a compliment, not as a euphemism for being retarded. In my country, schools for them were at first called “special”, but that was deemed too offensive, so now it’s “practical”. Ironic? Yes. The least practical people of all go to “practical schools”.
Black - means “a black person”. How the fuck is that racist or offensive in any way? I’ve never seen a white person be offended when someone calls them “white”. And pretty much every single black person I’ve met laughed their ass off at “African-American”. Firstly, because it’s ridiculous, and secondly, because Americans actually use that term for ALL black people, even those who aren’t actually American. Wow. I’m not even going to go into detail on “nigger”, which apparently black people can say and whites can’t, because it somehow brings back memories of slavery to people who were born long after it ended.
Fat - this is probably the most ridiculous of all. Hey, obese people, guess what? “Fat” is a descriptive word, not an insult. If “thin” or “slim” aren’t insults, then so isn’t “fat”. It describes your overall body weight and appearance. Fucking fat loads. At least have the common courtesy to deal with your fatness. I’m not going to call you “plus size” (that should actually mean someone with big boobs and ass, but not fat overall), “big” (that means tall and big boned), or “rounded” (because you’re not, you’re just big fucking blobs of fat flapping around).
Cunt/fuck - it’s not “the c word” or “the f word”, you fucking cunts. If you can’t say this, don’t say anything. Say “the s word” instead of “shit”. Say “the a word” instead of “asshole”. Come on. These words can’t possibly offend anyone, unless that person is completely idiotic.
My point is - stop getting fucking offended. You actually DON’T HAVE TO. Getting offended is an activity, it’s not a reflex. In order to get offended, you have to be such a huge asshole, that you actually think about whether you should or should not like a word. Holy shit.
Oh, and “triggering” is fucking bullshit. Get over yourselves.
And before you start jumping on the “oooh you’re so edgy, aren’t you” bandwagon, let me say this - no, I’m not. I’m not American, I’m from Europe, and the reason I feel like this is that I’ve seen what this ridiculous censorship and political hyper-correctness can do. There are countries here, where you can pretty much only carry a conversation in euphemisms, because they cater to every single person who gets offended at anything, and all descriptive words are considered “offensive”, because someone got butthurt over them. We, as a Western civilization, have gotten to a point where we are just huge pussies, afraid of any real confrontation, so we’d rather sugarcoat everything as soon as someone says “this offends me”, even if it’s completely ridiculous that it could.
Stop this shit, America, or you’ll end up like us.
Okay so the poster shouldn’t get offended when I say they’re a piece of fucking shit. You cunt. Die. Hm?
