Easily Offended?

First off I’m glad to hear that DOMA is gone. Finally LGBT couples can have the same benefits as traditional married couples. Finally, we are catching up to current times.

 

Has our society become a bunch of super sensitive sissies? One of my friends told me about a friend of his, from the south, who moved to Chicago for a job. This person called a woman at the work place “hunny”and was fired for sexual harassment. Honestly, that was considered harassment? There are certainly worse things to be called. Plus, people in different regions have different colloquial dialects. It is just what these people heard growing up.

However it is confusing in society. We are desensitized to a great deal of things such as violence, adult themed material and subject matter and hearing profane language in music, movies and television. But, these same people are offended when being called “hunny?” What is our society coming to?
