How could this possibly work? Should we all be reduced to bland platitudes so we don’t risk offending? People who aren’t open about sex can be offended by content on here. People who are offended by certain political stances can be offended. People who dislike swearing can be offended. I managed to offend somebody because he didn’t like me using colloquialism.

Humour, like art, is subjective. I’m not going to tell you to lighten up, but you can see how unworkable this would be. How this leads to censorship.

These are all opinion pieces and should be treated as such.
