    Default Loving to be Offended

    Is it just me or are there people out there who look to find offence in everything? Particularly on the internet?

    I feel I can't say anything for fear of someone taking me to task on it.

    I posted on another internet forum looking to meet up with other trans* people to do real world things with. I said I was looking for people who looked convincing as a girl (when out and about in public I don't want pointing and name calling etc which I would get with someone who wasn't convincing) and got accused of demeaning anyone who wasn't convincing as a girl.

    I never said a word against anyone and indeed have many many good friends who aren't convincing (I just don't walk the mean streets of Glasgow with them). It upsets me.

    What's next? I like people with piercings - am I discriminating against folk who aren't pierced?

    Lovely way to start a new year Yv (not)
    You are right that people are so challenged to do anything other than look for something negative in every avenue of life and sling it at you. Easier said than done but don't be offended by some numpty hiding behind technology.
    Really hope you get some positive responses on the other forum too

    Thanks TikiMan,

    I got the thread deleted so I'm going to try again. It's incredibly hard finding other trans people who aren't firmly in the closet!

    Yeah it really seems like all people nowadays can do is look for the smallest thing you say and take it completely out of context. Especially when they're sitting behind a pc and they don't actually have to face you.
    Like TikiMan said, easier said than done but don't pay attention to them.

    I have learned over the last years not to care anymore what others say and do. And if they do try and "correct" me or blame me for stuff then I just very not kindly tell them to go. Normally I try to be nice to others but I just have zero patience for people like that.
    Hey I'm Patrick. Or call me Chris, both are fine.
    Current piercings: ~ Septum 5 mm ~ Philtrum 7 mm ~ Snakebites 1,6 mm ~ Tongue 14g x 6, 2 mm x 2, 4 mm x 1

    Honestly i feel the same way about most subjects, you're not alone. It seems like the world needs to be watered down for people.

    First lobes - Done between the ages 7 and 9.
    Second lobes - Done 5.05.18.
    Third lobes - Done 29.03.17.
    Fourth lobes - Done 06.03.18.
