A Word You Will Hear From Snowflakes: ‘Offended’

I found it interesting. The other day I was talking with a twenty-something woman about people being polite and actually doing what they said they would do. She said my opinion ‘Offended’ her. Maybe I live a protected life but this is the first time I have encountered this. The ‘Offended’ line was used as a cudgel to make me silent. You see most of us old-timers don’t want to cause offense. But this time the charge was ludicrous. Instead of being silent I reiterated my earlier comment. Since then I have thought of more possible responses. Things like, “Oh, you’re a snowflake. I don’t want to talk to snowflakes”.

Today in the Washington Examiner there is an article titled, “New Trump executive order hurts Hawaii’s feelings”. Yes, they say that the Hawaiian archipelago has somehow become offended. The islands have gotten their feelings hurt.
