Yes, and when people use the phrase "thyroid lifestyle" in an attempt to make people with hypo- or hyperthroidism seem weird and alien to everyone else and deny them basic civil rights, it'll be just like when people opposed to LGBT rights say "gay lifestyle" or "transgender lifestyle."

Again, context matters. It's not the word. It's who was using the word, and why, and what they were doing. This isn't a sterile discussion of the dictionary.

It's also the receiver of a word. And how offended, or not, they want to be. (Like Fredo)

Being offended is the appropriate response to offensiveness. I hope I never lose my ability to be offended. Losing that would mean I've lost my ability to care about things.

And as Halcón said, and I'll say in another way: some people are just seeking out a reason to be offended, and will create it if it wasn't there and there was no offensiveness given in the first place.

I would like to remind you that I still don't talk to you about anything that matters, since the last thread about this topic a couple of months ago, in which you were given ample opportunities to take back calling transgender people's bodies "mutilated" and instead doubled- and tripled-down on that position.

On a less-important note, I do find it amusing that you and I both "niced" Lines' comment. It may be the first thing we've ever agreed about, even if we each probably had different reasons.

I would just like to take a moment to say that I've made my share of snide comments towards your posts in other threads (and may continue to do so because you post some weird stuff) but in this thread, I appreciate your effort toward understanding and asking genuine questions. (In general, I mean, not just our back and forth - I'm an idiot and don't speak for anyone else, let alone a large group of people.)

I can't know for sure, but it would appear that you are genuinely trying to learn and understand the topic. It does not go unnoticed.

This is ridiculous. If I did this with everyone who disagreed with me here (DGCR in general), or has offended me, I'd have nobody to talk to.

"I insulted you. But it's on you if you take offense."

Then don't. I haven't.

I have made precisely one entry into that ledger, and I have made it abundantly plain how to get off the list.
