(Not clearly thought out; more of a placeholder for later development into a clearer position on, "offense," "respect," "cultural appropriation," and all that.)

I take issue with people who demand respect without knowing how to define it concretely. The whole movement of "taking offense" is about people who expect others not to hurt their feelings - while it is nice to propose such a morality, it is rather foolish to expect others to embrace it without war. So they go to war. Not a war I have time for, most days of the week...
