thanks, elena. your post was a big "aha" moment for me, because I'm the one who's usually offended

"People are struggling with poverty, hunger, wars . . .and THIS is what we choose to get upset about???"

You are *so* right. Thanks.

Does anyone remember the Bloom County cartoon about being offended?

"You've offended me!" "No, you've offended me!" - and the whole cartoon goes nuts with people telling each other that they're offended and that their being offended is offensive. Then Opus the penguin comes in, looks and turns to the reader, proclaiming: "Offensensitivity." How true.
