It’s true. Today, it’s hard to express your own views within the realm of rational discussion. It’s hard to say anything at all, really, without offending someone.


I like to read Yahoo! news to keep up on world happenings (even though the articles are often biased). But what I can’t believe is how many articles there are about how someone’s actions or clothes or hair color caused uproar because it “offended” someone.
