    Default Re: Hypersensitivity

    Yeah, I also think the same way (whether or not Eris was serious).
    Some things get ingrained in general speech to the point where if you get offended when someone's not referring directly to you you're gonna get offended a lot (unless you're an isolated sort).
    In my parts of Australia we have a lovely saying 'Harden up [not quite, google it or something I guess, trying not to bug a 'civilised' authoritative person here]. Some of us are so sick of overly sensitive types that we'll purposely say things that'll mess with them (eg I'm white as snow and have a mate black as coal. He'll call me a racial slur for black person [see previous square brackets] and other such black names and I'll call him things directed at white people. We get a lot of funny reactions from it).
    One thing in particular that pisses some of us off is that in Australia we hold different prejudices from America and some Americans go apeshit when one of our advertisements shows things they find racist that we don't. They actually felt a need to kill a KFC advert here just because it had black people in it or something.
