Default Should anyone have the right to not be offended?

What I mean is, should images, words and phrases be censored and enforced as off-limits by LAW anywhere in the developed world so as to not offend certain people?

Basically, removal of total freedom of speech.

Examples:

Should offensive racial slurs mentioned by non members of said races be banned?

Should non-muslims be banned from use of offensive or sensitive or critical phrases or images to muslims?

Should people be banned from offensive sexist talk to feminists?

etc etc etc

Are there any groups that are on an almightier place than the rest of society that deserve to not be offended and have laws made to place them on a pedestal free from teasing, criticisms, and offensive words?







Because that seems to be what social justice warriors want. Safe spaces and shit. They want segregation, exclusivity, and removal of freedom of speech.

Liberalism truly is the poison of western civilization. And by Western civilization I mean Anglo Saxon European.

I bet there's about 10-15% of the population that would say yes to this.


Crazy sons of bitches.

I actually think it's higher. We few are the voice of reason. They will tell tales of our struggles against the PC empire and eventual destruction of it one day.

We are the 1%

Outside of direct threats of violence, pretty much everything should be legal.

You two are honestly falling into that same holier than thou trap that causes the censorship demand problem. Elitism is a critical mechanism to what causes groups to feel like they should be treated differently.

So chill out, neither of you are smart nor special.

I'm no elitist. I know I'm better than you.


All men are created equal, but they don't have to be treated as equals.
