Top 10 Things People Most Need to Stop Getting Offended Over

It's the 2020s yet idiots around the world still get all worked up or triggered by silly things. These are the things people most need to be able to let slide.
The Top Ten
1 Opinions

I respect opinions unless someone says that Twilight is the best book series and movie in the world, when it really sucks. I prefer to watch To Kill A Mockingbird and My Little Pony.

I have had some people call me some pretty nasty names because I disagreed with them. Many times I wasn’t even attacking them. Why do they need everyone to have the same opinion as them? It is okay to question why someone may have a certain opinion, but not attack them when they are not attacking you.

TheTopTens is full of biased opinions. If you like pop music, Swords Art Online, Serena from Pokemon, or Frozen, you're not gonna have a good time.

People are going to disagree with you. If you get offended every time, you're going to be offended your whole life, which does not sound pleasant.

2 Jokes

I get it if you were through a tough time and I just went to your video on that subject and I made a joke of it, but when you get mad when I tell a dark joke in an area where it is more encouraged, you need to get the hell off.

If it is a harmless joke then yes, but if it is a joke that thinly veils your hate then no.
People love to say mean hurtful things then be like what you can't take a joke, completely forgetting the key part of a joke the humor

People have different types of sense of humor which depends on what type of jokes the audience would enjoy laughing. People may think that it's really funny or severely offensive that it would unleash controversy.

On April fools one time a made a joke to my friend that her shoes were untied and then she yells at me and starts crying.Just stupid.

3 Criticism

Depends on the amount and nature of the criticism, but people shouldn't be offended over constructive criticism

It helps you to improve, as long as it's constructive.

Criticism is meant to help and improve people.

Imagine getting triggered over criticism.

4 Swear Words

I don't really rcare when people say swear words, but I remember in 2nd grade this kid was told me to say duck except change the d with an f. Back then I thought Idiot was a swear word so I never actually heard of the f-word so I said. I remember when that kidt old me I cursed and I was so scared that somebody would tell the teacher

Just words people use if really angry or really excited. Not something worth getting upset over.

If you despise swear words as always, I doubt that you will never say swear words when you have grown up.

This site helped me to stop getting offended over swear words. I mean, they are just words.

5 Grammar Nazis

The word Nazi it's like someone who supports Hitler and wishes he was still alive and they make sure peoples grammar is correct or else.

If you get offended by people correcting your grammar then I have no respect for you.
Grammar nazis are good.

Don't spell like a 5 year old and you won't have to worry about someone correcting you. Sound like a plan?

Grammar Nazis can be annoying but they’re only trying to correct grammatical mistakes. So if you hate these people then improve your grammar and spelling

6 Religion

Who cares how you worship God? I doubt that God cares how you worship him. And I think every believes in God to a certain degree even the so-called atheists.

People don't get offended by religion, they get offended by bigotry from people within said religion, many religious people are awesome, but there are also several that makes you really question humanity

Isn't it always the religious people getting offended over everything? Like when Muslims in Saudi Arabia banned Pokémon because it was "unIslamic" or when priests in Poland burned Harry Potter books and shunned My Little Pony toys because they were "satanic"

I cringe every time at the idea of hearing the word “damn,” discussion of someone else’s supernatural powers, something against their religious laws, or ffs another religion. They get offended so easily sometimes. Not to diss religious people, but there are some bad ones out there.

7 Mean Words on a Screen

One thing that needs to be taken into account, is the difference between being offended and just wanted to correct false statements, these two get confused easily and are treated as the same thing, false information is harmful (antivaxxer are the big example that pops to mind) - germshep24

"But that person cyberbullied me and made me feel depressed! ". Imagine getting triggered over words on a screen and claiming that it gives depression.
Mean words on a screen can't affect you unless you are some easily triggered brat and most of the time this "cyberbullying" isn't even online harassment many of the times it's just someone joking or someone criticizing someone but some morons think it's harassment. Joking around or criticizing someone online =/= harassment.
If it is actual online harassment then I can see why but as I said many of times "cyberbullying" is just someone joking around or criticizing someone and some idiot gets butthurt. - DarkBoi-X

Unless it’s from someone personal whose actions have the threat of transcending into something bad outside of the screen. - Archived

Other than this item, this is a very good list. I salute you - darthvadern

8 Facts

Yep. There are still retards who get offended by facts.
Examples include:Social justice warriors, religious fundamentalists, anti vaxxers and ultraconservatives.
But some of these have died down a bit, thank goodness for that.

Yes and no, many people like to misconstrue the "facts" to fit their agenda or throw facts that have no relevance to the conversation, which only goes to show that person ignorance of the subject

Dear SJWs: If gender is a choice does that means the wage gap doesn't exist.

That even includes horrible things that are unfortunately facts so you shouldn’t even get offended over it.

9 Sex

Some people say that it's gross but without sex we wouldn't reproduce

Is your friend illiterate, or just unable to comprehend written words?

Imagine hating sex. It is the reason you are alive in the first place.

If you don't want to have sex then cool but don't shame people who do want to have sex - RoseWeasley

10 Political Songs and Artists

How is "they should just shut up and sing, they're musicians" any different than "they should just shut up and repair, they're plumbers."
Since when did your career determine whether or not you're allowed to be political?

I love listening to these songs. Unfortunate that some raging people are typing in the comments.

Like all those ultraconservatives who were rustled over artists like Rage Against The Machine, NWA, Public Enemy, The Beatles, etc.

They even get offended by different music genres like Heavy Metal for example.

The Contenders

So long as a person is able to love another person, who cares what that person's gender is? And if we have come far enough to say that girls can like TMNT and boys can like MLP FIM why can't we just say that it's okay if you don't identify with the gender you were born with?

This is the biggest one for me. I cannot stand homophobic people at all. At least with some of the others, I can still have good relations over all with them, but people who continuously whine over certain harmless civil rights are despicable.

Name five secular reasons why persecuting gays and lesbians is justified

Fun fact: Homosexual animals also exist so it's natural to be homosexual

12 Pop Singers

Imagine still getting offended by Bieber in 2019. He's pretty irrelevant as of now.

13 Video Games

Solider 1: What's violence?
Solider 2: I don't know bro video games aren't invented yet.

Mix video games with opinions and you have an explosive combination!

I'm not offended over it, I just don't really like the game...

Like those dumbasses who claim video games cause school shootings.

14 Science

Imagine getting offended by science. Example of such are people who deny climate change but those are just 1 of many.

Science says a man can't be a woman. Agreeing with science in that case will get you into legal trouble.

You don't like what science says take it up with God because God invented science.

Science as a whole, or certain fields and ideas of science? This item is too vague.

15 Fetishes

I think we all know who added this here.

Take a wild guess at who added this.

I wonder who added this?

I wonder who added this.

16 Trolls

When you're a troll, you can go 2 ways.

The first type is the type that does stupid stuff like saying "you must be like this" or making dumb jokes but can still give one a good laugh. That's the type you shouldn't get offended over.

But then there's the second type, who brings it too far with doing stuff like wishing death, using stupid reasons, or does crap just to get the attention. There's the type worth being offended by.

So there are trolls that are worthy of being offended from, but not all are worth it.

It closed the IMDB forums but they were funny.

I mean, people getting pissed off is kinda the fun part though. As long as you aren’t harming anybody, trolling is fine.

17 The Word "Overrated"

Yes, people do use it wrong sometimes but this seriously means this gets too much attention, not it's bad. Overrated and bad are two different things.

Imagine being offended over a word that you clearly don't even know the definition of.

18 Farts

How can you get offended over a fart?

LaughingJokingnumbnuts So do you. You discusting excuse of a human being.

Some people don’t have a sense of humor.

19 Modern Music

I love modern music!

20 Boomers
21 Feminists

Third and Fourth wave.

22 Autism

Are you saying there is something wrong with your kind because your kid has autism? I got news for you there isn't. I have autism and I love it! Autism is a gift not a curse.

Curing autism is impossible since autism is genetic.

23 Liberals

Alt right: Facts don't care about your feelings
Also alt right: LIBTARD

We just want equality, and it isn’t like feminism where they disregard male disadvantages. Come on..

24 Manspreading

Women being genuinely oppressed in Saudi Arabia,
Feminists: I sleep
Men spreading their legs for comfort:
Feminists: Real Shi*

I learned this term from Leafy's video

25 Burps

They sound gross, but it’s also fun
