It's a choice like your religious beliefs or sexual orientation are. Which is not really at all.

WHOA, champ. Religious beliefs are one hundred percent a choice. What offends us is likewise one hundred percent a choice. These things can be influenced by our surroundings, but they are NOT fixed in any way. Sexuality is the opposite. NOT a choice.

Wait a sec. Did you just say basically being gay is a choice? Have you been in a coma or something? Please, sproko... Archie Bunker is off the air & was satire anyway. You're smarter than this. Aren't you?

Yes because I stopped giving a flying fuck a long time ago.

Absolutely, because one should, and has the ability to, stop being offended at one point.

FUCK YOU ALL.

If you're offended, it's not because you chose to be, it's because I intended to offend you and you perceived my words as a normal person. If you're not offended, you may simply be calloused toward offensive cussing. Still not a choice

If you're not offended, it could also be because SoH censored the word I wrote out as "ef you see kay", without asterisks.

I was not offend. Slightly amused. Other people's opinions are none of my business & don't interest me. The language you use belongs to you & is offense to you. But keep trying its some what entertaining

Something one feels and then should usually analyze before reacting. Often it's a misinterpretation. Sometimes not

It's always been an immediate reaction for me. How I choose to handle it is a different story.

No. Why would people choose to be offended?

Exactly my point. You can decide if you want to be offended by the actions of others or not.

People choose to be offended all the time.

No, but expressing your offense is. Just like something can make the butterflies in your stomach fly, but peeing is the choice.

Categorically. Yes. One has any number of choices when another makes any comment/action. Laugh, cry, anger, interpretation of intent rather than ask; too easy to assume malfeasance rather than ignorance, humor, or completely different communication

Choosing to be offended would indicate a failure in Emotional Intelligence:

I find the fact that you steal ideas offensive.
