I hate easily offended people


http://www.dailymail.co.uk/pages/live/articles/news/news.html?in_article_id=445979&in_page_id=1770&ICO=NEWS&ICL=TOPART

 Honestly where does this kinda crap end??? I think people need to learn how to suck it up and deal with being offended. Go cry to someone if it offends you that much.

This reminds me of a teacher not wishing to teach evolution for fear it might offends someone. I can't recall that hapenning here but its an analogous situation and I'm sure it has happened before. We're dealing with that ID junk over here now anyway. I think lessons in reality could have an overall positive effect on some people.

My response: I think Targos's fate hinges on how much Shawford can pay us from the Targos treasury.

 Couldn't select a smilie from the list on the right to describe emotion/facial expression. -_- I saw that somewhere back along. Its....just.... despicable.

Facts are fact. The holocaust happened. I can't believe its simply because we now have muslims living here, that they're knocking it off the history subject list.

 I agree... seems lately, everything had suddenly become 'Offensive!' Can't do anything for fear of offending someone. Anyone.

 "it's time people stopped pussyfooting around for fear of upsetting somebody."

 Read that in the comments. Right on. How about they sack the teachers that won't teach it and hire teachers with the guts to actually do just that- teach.

That's just stupid!!

Muslims seem to be taking a lot of things to extremes...

They shouldn't try to force their religious beliefs onto everyone else.

I hate that aswell, I think people should be free to teach what they want. Why not ban sex education aswell incase it offends somebody while they're at it? emoticon

The problem is reality and religion don't mix so this type of situation is bound to repeat itself. Rather than trying to ban things they disagree with there is now a push to have their junk taught alongside current curriculums. It kinda makes their position seem a bit more open minded by doing this but its just a front for them to try and inject their beliefs into the school system.
