People Talk About Things That Seem Offend Folks but They Don’t Mind

Do you know what I think one of the keys to life is?

Not letting every little thing bother me!

Of course, it’s easier said than done, but I try not to be offended by much…

Now let’s see what AskReddit users had to say about this!

1. Why, thank you!

“I’m a straight female. Getting hit on by a l**bian is the biggest compliment!

People usually get offended because they are insecure about their sexuality likely from some deep set attraction to the same s**.

They overcompensate by getting angry or freaking out.”

2. That’s a good thing.

“Getting creative criticism.

Criticism is one of the most valuable resources for personal and professional development. I’ve worked with so many people who just get angry and shut down the moment anyone criticises their work. It’s not personal.

That said, not everyone does things the same way… and, as long as the results are good, the means of achieving them is up to the individual – whatever they find most efficient.”

3. No big deal.

“Not being invited to friends’ or even family members’ events, especially weddings.

It is what it is, and I don’t expect an explanation.

Have fun and take lots of pictures. We’re good!”

4. Nope…

“I had a neighbor who said, “Is that a lil baby bump??” He was always a nice guy, and he was actually really excited.

I said, “Naaah, I’m just gaining weight.” We both laughed it off.

Intention is important. I’m not getting offended if the intention isn’t malicious.”

5. Embrace them.


Some of the best people I’ve met have been the freaks and outcasts.”

6. Up to you.

“Choosing to be religious.

Or choosing to not be religious.”

7. Call me whatever you want.

“I get asked my pronoun of choice from time to time and honestly I don’t care about it.

Call me what you want. Whatever you think I am. If you’re right, yay! If you’re wrong I’ll politely let you know so you can correct. But you can assume my gender any time, I’ll never be offended by it.

Same goes for my orientation. You can assume it all you want. I’ll let you know politely if it’s wrong.

Now this doesn’t mean I’ll hold others to my standard, I’ll always treat people the way they want to be treated.”

8. Just small talk.

“Being asked where I’m from as a person of color.

I don’t really see the big deal, it’s just small talk.”

9. No stealing going on.

“I’m Argentinian.

If a white American shows appreciation for gauchos and started wearing their traditional clothing I would not be offended.

I don’t see it as stealing my culture.”

10. Let’s split it.

“Splitting the bill on dates.

Never understood why men get so offended when I offer to pay my half.

It is not an ego battle, I just want to pay my share.”

11. Needs to be addressed.

“Talking about s**cide.

People, haven’t we realized it’s a thing that happens and the best way forward is through not tiptoeing around?”

12. To each their own.

“Being unpatriotic/not giving a s**t about nationality

Just because you’re born in your little patch of dirt doesn’t mean you’re better than me. It’s not against the law for me to not be proud to be an American, so quit your b**ching

If I saw someone cross the border without permission or refuse to celebrate their independence day, I honestly wouldn’t care.”

Now it’s your turn!

Tell us what offends other people but not you.

We’d love to hear from you!
