You don't have a right...
Not to be offended.
Jada Pinkett Smith , (wife to one of my favorite celebs) recently made a speech at Harvard University. In this speech she was said to be giving the story of her life. After which she was accused of "being overly 'heteronormative' and made gay students feel uncomfortable."
I won't even get into whether or not being gay is
morally wrong a choice, what I have to say on this subject applies to every wacko peacenik person out there.
YOU DON'T HAVE THE RIGHT NOT TO BE OFFENDED.
Freedom of speech is a wonderful thing, and I have fought for it for over 13 years as a member of the U.S. Military. Freedom of speech is however very defined.
While exercising free speech, you cannot cause panic, injury or death.
Being offended, however, is not injury.
You have the right to speak, not the right to be heard.
You have the right to speak in public, but no-one has to listen.
When someone is speaking, you have the right not to listen.
Therefore you do not have to be offended.
However if you do listen you may be offended, but that does not give you the right to take away the offenders free speech nor must that individual apologize.
Demanding an apology because someone spoke of their life is inane. Since when should someone have to apologize because they are NORMAL and you are not.That is tantamount to you having to apologize because you are different. That sounds exactly like what we as a society have been fighting against for the last few decades.
But that's just my opinion, and this is me exercising my free speech. I do not apologize.
