আহত ও আঘাতপ্রাপ্ত অনুভূতিওয়ালাদের উদ্দেশে

ধর্মবিশ্বাসীদের অনুভূতি পদে পদে আহত হয় (কেন যে নিহত হয় না!), আঘাতপ্রাপ্ত হয়। এ বিষয়ে অস্ট্রেলীয় কমেডিয়ান Steve Hughes বলছেন: 
What's wrong with being offended? Now you have adults going "I was offended, I was offended and I have rights!" Well, so what, be offended, nothing happens. You're an adult, grow up, and deal with it. I was offended! Well, I don't care! "I want to live in a democracy but I never want to be offended again." Well, you're an idiot.
সোয়া দুই মিনিটের অত্যন্ত উপভোগ্য ভিডিও। মূল অংশের ট্র্যান্সক্রিপ্ট দেয়া আছে নিচে। এবং তারও নিচে দেয়া আছে "আঘাতপ্রাপ্ত অনুভূতি" বিষয়ে রিচার্ড ডকিন্স, ক্রিস্টোফার হিচেন্স, স্টিফেন ফ্রাই ও Messy Mondays-র ছোট্ট চারটি দুর্দান্ত ভিডিওর লিংক।

Political correctness is the oppression of our intellectual movement so no one says anything anymore just in case anyone else gets offended. What happens if you say that and someone gets offended? Well, they can be offended, can't they? What's wrong with being offended? When did stick and stones may break my bones stop being relevant? Isn't that what you teach children? He called me an idiot! Don't worry about it, he's a dick.

Now you have adults going "I was offended, I was offended and I have rights!" Well, so what? Be offended, nothing happens. You're an adult, grow up, and deal with it. I was offended! Well, I don't care! Nothing happens when you're offended. "I went to the comedy show and the comedian said something about the lord, and I was offended, and when I woke up in the morning, I had leprosy."

Nothing Happens. "I want to live in a democracy but I never want to be offended again." Well, you're an idiot.

How do you make a law about offending people? How do you make it an offense to offend people? Being offended is subjective. It has everything to do with you as an individual or a collective, or a group or a society or a community. Your moral conditioning, your religious beliefs. What offends me may not offend you. And you want to make laws about this? I'm offended when I see boy-bands for god's sake.

It's a valid offense, I'm offended. They're cooperate shills, posing as musicians to further a modeling career and frankly I'm disgusted.
