And the hypersensitivity of people these days is just ridiculous - especially when they aren't even in the group being "insulted". I find myself just not making jokes and making the most banal conversation now because of fear of pissing off an idiot and getting screamed at or shot. For example, back when that whole bullshit of those pizza place people not wanting to serve gay people, I didn't think it was a big deal - I DIDN'T say it was right, btw. But fucking A, I got screamed at by a straight person for being a bigot, and god forbid when I posted something like that on Reddit, I got voted down into oblivion. That couldn't have possibly have been from gay people because they are a very very very small minority. It was all sanctimonious bullies.
And I think that is where a lot of this PC backlash is originating from: sanctimonious bullies.
