Will You Be Offended By This?

The greatest infringement of free speech in America today is the too often used phrase, “That offends me.” To which I almost always reply, “I’m offended that what I said offends you.” Now that we are both offended can we discuss the facts of the issue rather than our feelings, “I’m offended, “ has become a favorite of the politically correct and it is nearly impossible to attack it or defend against it, because , “ all can claim it and none can prove it.”


About safrisri

I was a school teacher until retirement. I have taught at all educational levels from pre-school to college. My college degree is general science which I arrived at after 5 years and 5 different majors. A degree as it turns out, almost as valuable and in demand as one in Neo-Bulgarian Mythology. I have been around education for around 40 years and can remember when teaching was a pleasant, happy and creative job and our schools were the same. Now I'm the guy sitting on the porch with an opinion on everything.
