I have noticed in society a lot of "offended-ness" is for example by a given person on someone elses behalf.
Sometimes the party being "defended" doesn't even want to be defended, and wasn't offended.
There are even large groups being offended on other groups behalfs, pushing for making laws that restrict freedoms that are more important than someone being offended or not.
Sometimes the situation makes me wonder what is really going on.

It is usually just "virtue signalling" and would be called out for what it is, if it did not further the agenda of some less-than-honorable groups.

So now the youth have been trained to look for things to be offended by, not only themselves, but something someone else might be offended by. Led by the media and the herd of followers to what they should be offended by.

Virtue signaling...

So if you take away the "signaling", basically what this all is is a sort of substitute for actual virtue?

To me, it is just someone saying, "Hey! Look at me! I am so enlightened!"
It seems to be an acceptable form of chest thumping. Sort of a passive/aggressive thing.

The herd mentality still depends on individual egos.

I generally just tell the offended to go find somebody who gives a ****.

99% of the time they get a look of shock that someone stood up to them and suddenly aren't so offended anyone.

Announcing "I'm offended" is basically telling the world that you can't control your own emotions and that you expect other people to do it for you.

Use caution when putting on a jackets. You may offend a leftie.

I do not mind being called right leaning. I do not mind at all.

The last few words are a Thomas Hobbes quote from his 1651 poem "Leviathan"

"...and the life of man, solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short" (Leviathan, i. xiii. 9)

A good friend of mine who is an excellent trial attorney actually used that last line in a closing statement in court.

My friend John misstated the source but it's at 15:10 in this video:

IMO the virtue signaling behavior is just psychological projection. The snowflake being offended doesn't have the courage to admit they're offended, so instead they project it onto a 3rd party. Also IMO it's very disingenuous.

From a "Millennial" with their head on straight.
Its simple, so simple that I do think a lot of people who can't see it, do so by choice.

Her huge wandering about eyes and her voice offend me, and anyone that watches it all the way thru in 2020 is a racist.
I'll need a safe space for some alone time so I can figure out how to atone for my sinful, hurtful ways..
EVERYBODY ELSE...... GET OUT OF HERE!!!

Heh, I thought about warning about her delivery, but hey I did say "Milennial". She calls herself Roaming Millennial.

Pretty good message though I thought. You?

I'm offended over you being offended over me not being offended. Is that enough offensiveness to go around?
