Do you believe that people have become far too sensitive? Why/why not?

It seems to me that quite a lot of things that are being said or done are being perceived as politically incorrect or offensive. I think that people are way too sensitive and need to start toughening up. What do you think?

I agree with you Brad. It's a liberal thing that is being used to get people to submit to shutting up when people speak the truth. Read Rules for Radicals. It will show you how calling people names then acting offended by facts, is a tool used by left leaning liberals, especially those in power. A prime example is stating facts about Obama's lies and his agenda is met with "you don't like him because he is black". Being offended by the facts and using his race to win an argument is just a tool taught in the liberals "bible". I will never shut up and will never apologize for using actual facts and common sense. .

It depends on what you're talking about. Our society continues to grow diverse, accepting those from all walks of life. You have to be very careful with your words, my friend. You do not know who you may hurt with them.

That's what I'm saying. There's no doubt that this new wave of diversity is a contributing factor to my frustration. I want to know if you think it's starting to get out of hand.

I think diversity allows us as humans to open our minds a little more. I think we can be sensitive to a point, then yes it starts to get out of hand when we don't get the job we wanted, or an A+ on an exam we clearly didn't study for. I do think it's important to consider the feelings of others before we say something.

I'm not saying we shouldn't consider their feelings, I'm just saying that I don't think we should place them in higher regard.
Report as
I agree. We should hold everyone to an equal and unbiased regard.

I believe a generation or two have been breed or taught to be overly sensitive. No scores kept in kids' sports. Everyone gets a trophy. Some schools don't have a valedictorian because it hurts other students' feelings. We go out of our way to not offend or hurt feelings. Kids are growing up not being taught how to handle hurt feelings or being offended. They aren't taught there are people smarter or better than they are at things. It also contributes to the disgusting entitlement mentality of The United States. It also hinders people from being able to receive criticism or to handle the truth.

Don't forget about not allowing something as simple as Christmas to be celebrated at schools. That aside, yeah, I agree with you 100%.

The person with highest grade point average and most credits earned. Basically the smartest person in a graduating class.

your insults are like crimes, their terrible things

I'm not insulting. I'm just truthful and have the guts to be so. If I'm considered harsh or mean, so be it. Somebody has to be honest and not conform to the garbage known as political correctness.
