How to be Offended
    #2359253 - 02/20/04 02:16 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

1. Anything, when directed at you is capable of offending you. (Remember this, it's the most important step)
2. Being offended is a state of mind, so the intentions of another mean nothing. In fact, if you want to... you can perceive someone's intentions to be whatever is most offensive to you.
3. You can be offended by someone's mere presence! Yes, it's just that simple.

All this and more can offend you for only 2 easy payments of $19.95. Act fast and you can even get the limited edition "How to Tattle on Another Once You've Been Offended".

What does this have to do with S and P.

How about a tutorial on "Not being offensive?"

I find it offensive that only one was shown - they come in pairs, damn it!

To call humans 'rational beings' does injustice to the term, 'rational.'  Humans are capable of rational thought, but it is not their essence.  Humans are animals, beasts with complex brains.  Humans, more often than not, utilize their cerebrum to rationalize what their primal instincts, their preconceived notions, and their emotional desires have presented as goals - humans are rationalizing beings.

I'll make it philosophical. Which one is the most known offensive fallacy ?

So much easier to abdicate any responsibility as in "You are responsible for my emotional state". Who is in control of "you" is the real question and what is the payoff for getting riled up?

The more spiritually mature a person, the less they are offended for they see the bigger picture (awareness) and better understand the differences in human perception and communication. (Uh oh! This is bound to offend someone.)  :eyemouth:

3. You can be offended by someone's mere presence! Yes, it's just that simple.

Don't forget you can even be offended by your own thoughts. In fact I think that's the only thing that can make one offended.

Welcome evermore to gods and men is the self-helping man.  For him all doors are flung wide: him all tongues greet, all honors crown, all eyes follow with desire.  Our love goes out to him and embraces him, because he did not need it.

One can be offended by one's own interpretation of an incidence or event. We often interpret these things through glasses tinted by the negative experiences of our childhood. Reality is obscured by clouded judgment, and we become offended by an otherwise inoffensive event.

Damn those buttons anyways!

"Anything, when directed at you is capable of offending you."

How DARE you think that about me!


--------------------
Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.

> What about J.Jackson tit ? How can that offend anyone ?

A little know fact... Americans are born fully clothed. When some hellspawn like Janet comes around and undoes what God rightfully gave us (fully clothed bodies), it undermines an entire nation's ethics. I mean, how can we continue to bomb other countries in the name of the greater good when we have bare breasted nipples on TV. You see the problem, no?

Drugs are the worst thing you can do in this country. Nudity is a close second. War is fine.
