    It depends what it's about.

    Usually I don't get offended easily, but there are some subjects that are a little sensitive for me.

    BH has definitely opened my eyes about opinions people have that I could never have imagined! I think it's made me more paranoid/ careful when talking to people IRL, because I now question all the scenarios where you would usually think "Well, no one would get upset about THAT!"

    I think that may have had something to do with her raging pregnancy hormones and her current situation than what you said.
    Anyhow she never takes or hold offensive for long.

    You'd think after 12 years of going to chat rooms and forums I'd be desensitized, but occasionally I get offended. Just in my nature I guess.

    Usually after taking my head out of my phone/laptop for more than 10 minutes I get over it.

    Depends what you mean by a general statement.
    I don't really care what people think of me or my life.

    Get a bunch of women together on the Internet and things are going to fly.

    You need a tough hide for a forum of mostly women (mostly hormonal women too ). And a tough hide I have But I do get offended sometimes, naturally.

    Take the current 'bogan' threads where people are writing what may or may not be bogan. If you find the term bogan offensive, and someone writes something that describes you, your lifestyle or attributes, but you don't think your bogan or think the term is offensive - well yeah you probably are going to be offended.
    Hmm was that me perchance?

    I vaguely remember something...?
