The only times i ever got truly offended was during "Equalities Training" the offensive remarks made about straight white males by the "Equalities Trainers" made me sooo mad!

Ultimately I got a lot of support through this period of my life by some African/Caribbean Women (Black Girls) who also found it to be offensive to white boys.

The trainer was dismissed and we all got over it.

As a postscript to this, one of the other offensive PC trainers at my place of work, who had hammered home the message of not dissing other races said to me on my last day of work:

"I don't now how you can go and live down under, they do "Upspeak" there (Raising the ptich of the last work so sentences sound like questions) I hate that, those Kiwi's and Aussies really piss me off".

So I left the UK offended by her blatant hypocrisy!

Falsely being fired from a job
to cover up someone else's behavior,
that they were talking trash and spreading rumors
to justify their claim about my job performance.
Later I had proved my side, and won in a lawsuit.

It was a great feeling, when two employees later thank me for taking
action, because there were other issues with employee relations.

Not really . . . pretty thick skin . . . I get irritated at some folks, but not really offended. Offense is subjective . . . some people get offended over what others perceive as trivial non sense. As blasted PC as this country has become, you can hardly do or ay anything without some piss ant getting offended. To that I say, screw 'em. Get offended it you want. I really could care less.

I have never been offended to a point of saying anything to the person about it.

I got annoyed at NPR for something they ran, one day. We listen to Weekend Morning Edition, as we go to church, as they have this segment called "The Puzzler" After it aired one day, they followed it with a story about books written for kids, that had hero's with offbeat super powers. One's was farting. And they used the word "farting" several times in the story and interview with the author. Now, my kids have probably heard this plenty of times, but at 8:45 on a Sunday morning, it just didn't wash. So I e-mailed 'em a note, and said that, even though I'm NOT a Pollyanna, I could have gone without hearing the word "fart" several times on my way to church. At 5:00 on the way home from work I'd have probably laughed myself silly, but NOT at 8:45 on a Sunday morning. I actually got back a note from some hump at NPR.

I honestly have never been offended by anyone's actions or comments. I have (obviously) become pissed at certain things that were said, but never really offended.

You mean: "Couldn't care less".

And yes, I admit to being offended by things. I think when one invests emotionally in something - and that thing is attacked or ridiculed, one cannot help but be offended. On the other hand - as others have noted, offence can be a tool. For instance, being offended at the antics of a certain Royal (while masquerading as serious concern and constructive outrage) can lead to that Royal getting into more hot water than his behaviour alone ever could have landed him in. Big grin

If it is something directed personally at me, like if someone tells me to go fuck myself, but otherwise, no. Why do people bother to get upset?

Sure, we're concerned for our lives. Just not as concerned as saving 9 bucks on a roundtrip to Ft. Myers.
