Yeah, you're right. But then again, dropping "I'm so over straight people" may not be the best line to drop either, especially when the douchebags that make the laws may take offense when they don't read into it.

I don't care for the title of the article, "Yep, I'm Gay." Well, congratulations.

I went to Frost and heard all this on the daily. I love the south end.

I am sick of people getting offended by things that don't offend me. Everybody should conform to my sensibilities!

Personally, I love it when I am debating somebody and they end up saying that they are offended.
To me, this is just a way to articulate whining.
"You just offended me!" or "That's offensive" is just so silly to throw into a serious discussion. You especially hear it a lot when you want to challenge religion.

This is probably the best way I've ever heard the subject of this brand of "offense" discussed, courtesy of the very amazing Stephen Fry: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lnSByCb8lqY (at 1:11)
It's nice to hear somebody so incredibly intelligent and talented agree with someone as simple as myself on something, damned near word for word.

In fact, do yourself a favor and listen to this entire discussion.
Here are two highlights:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lfmqiBfoPwA
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l-vp9avS ... re=related (Fry's closing is some of my favorite words EVER spoken on humanism- bear with the rambling question, the answer is worth it...pick it up at 1:53)

You might combat a word like "chick" by simply recognizing the simplicity of the person using it within the forum of critique- which I don't think there's much in this thread for anybody to get too worked up about.
