Things People Should Stop Getting Offended Over

It's 2019 yet idiots around the world still get rustled by these things.

The Top Ten

1 Opinions

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. - yungstirjoey666

I hate how other people disrespect opinions. Besides if you can't respect opinions, leave the website. Simple as that. - UltraLunalaX

If you're offended by these, you're going to be offended for your whole life, which doesn't sound pleasant - SirSheep

Especially on an opinion based website like TheTopTens. - DarkBoi-X

2 Jokes

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 - germshep24

Well people have different opinions on what they see as a harmful joke - RawIsgore

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.

No matter how edgy the joke is, getting offended over it isn't good. Besides jokes are not meant to be taken seriously and its extremely harmless - UltraLunalaX

Not too fond of edgy jokes, but we don't need to get hypersensitive over those jokes. - Userguy44

3 Criticism

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

Criticism helps you improve as a user and points out what you are doing wrong. Overreacting to it is just plain dumb really. - UltraLunalaX

Criticism is meant to help and improve people. - Userguy44

Imagine getting triggered over criticism. - DarkBoi-X

4 Swear Words

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

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

Exactly, swear words don't harm anyone. They are just words. - DrayTopTens

I've never been offended by them - SirSheep

5 Grammar Nazis

Don't spell like a 5 year old and you won't have to worry about someone correcting you. Sound like a plan? - 3DG20

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. - DarkBoi-X

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 - Randomator

6 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

This can be really offensive at times - DrayTopTens

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

"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

7 Facts

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 - germshep24

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. - DarkBoi-X

I just heard that Hungary banned gender studies because it's a "social construct". - ThatIntrovertedEmo

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

Facts don't care about your feelins - yungstirjoey666

8 Religion Religion

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 - germshep24

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" - TwilightKitsune

Religion is a fascinating topic. From an academic standpoint, I’d love to learn more about religion. - Archived

There’s nothing wrong with religion. - Randomator

9 Justin Bieber Justin Bieber Justin Drew Bieber (born March 1, 1994) is a Canadian singer, songwriter, and record producer. He currently resides in Ontario, Canada and is Christian. He is the son of author Pattie Mallette. more.

Imagine still getting offended by Bieber in 2019. He's pretty irrelevant as of now. - Userguy44

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? - emraldYE

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. - DarkBoi-X

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

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. - DarkBoi-X

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

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

Like those dumbasses who claim video games cause school shootings. - DarkBoi-X

@Archived Exactly. Most school shooters have some sort of mental illness. - DarkBoi-X

14 Trolls Trolls

Trolls are good. - DarkBoi-X

It closed the IMDB forums but they were funny.

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. - Bammer73

15 Science

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

Most trans people have gender dysphoria so they have to choose between the 2 genders. So science says that a man CAN be a woman or a woman CAN be a man but only in rare cases. - DarkBoi-X

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

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

"The good thing about Science is that it's true whether or not you believe in it"- Neil Degrasse Tyson. - ThatIntrovertedEmo
