“Was it when I called you a reactionary zealot? Is that what offended you?”

It was when you automatically assumed that calling out people meant you were a zealot.
To be honest, just telling them would be faster than filling out a form.

There’s a fine line between calling someone out for being offensive, and being offended for the sake of being offended. What do you think the odds are of someone who would carry these around unironically being the latter?

Anyone who ‘calls people out’ is over reacting. you do not have the right to not be offended and to assume your personal feelings should matter to strangers is immensely egotistical. Your feelings don’t matter. Deal with it.

Alright, you brain-dead faggot.
Deal with it.

And how do we know that the friend is using these unironically?
Why do people get offended just to get offended? It’s not a pleasant feeling at all. For me, at least.

I am assuming its a joke (or perhaps hoping…), but there is still precedent to support the possibility of this being absolutely serious.
As to why anyone would go out of their way to be offended on a regular basis? I think it comes back to people not having enough problems in their own lives to deal with, and have to make up their own problems. I can’t even begin to count how many debates over social issues I’ve had with straight, white, middle/upper-middle class twenty-somethings who are offended on behalf of some other group. Apparently, “being offended privilege” is a thing.

Why would people want to make up their own problems?
I highly doubt this is serious, people have done weirder things for notes. Like position their dog juuust so to create the illusion of a furry penis.

Because people are crazy, and some of them like drama a little too much.
