I'm a little sick of this "GenX doesn't get offended" BS

EVERYONE gets offended by something

When a right winger says they don't get offended I show them the "Jesus Fucking Christ" toon (Christians, I don't think you want to Google that, just saying)

They say it's blasphemy and then I remind them they are offended

And this seems especially true with MY generation, good ol' X

other people whining.

I think it's a jealousy issue, they think they're not being heard enough.

Actually I'm really not that easily offended, and this is no exception.

Certainly less easily so than the average DU-er, from what I've seen over almost 20 years

The ones who say people today are too sensitive, while their generation was lynching people who drank from the "wrong" water fountain.
