    People who troll for children on the internet, or anywhere for that matter, are offensive.

    I find ignorance and intolerance most offensive, in all honesty. I can't stand it when someone forms an opinion about something without knowing all the facts. I really can't stand it when people tell me I'm wrong or bad in some way simply because I don't subscribe to their point of view, be it religion, politics, what have you. How does it affect me? Many ways - anger, sadness, confusion. I know it's a giant waste of time to be concerned with this stuff, because in the long run, what does it matter? However, I find that more and more it bothers me. I can deal with obscene language (I use it all the time) and violence and even Michael Bay movies. What I can't deal with is people hating other people because they're black, white, Jewish, gay, fat, skinny, hetero, non-Christian, Muslim, Korean, Chinese, Democrat, Republican, or whatever. I hate to be trite, but really, why can't we all just get along? (That's not a joke, it's really how I feel.)

    Yeah i agree women deserve respect, which leads me to something else i find offensive, being labled as a sex object, or hot bloodied because i'm Latino...yes i like to get physical, but i'm sure every other woman regardless of her nationality does also, this makes me feel like thats all there is to me...when there is so much more to as a person.

    Women and girls wearing stupid shirts that say stuff like, "Your boyfriend bought me this shirt", or "I've got a nice pear" (double meaning), the 'Pussycat Dolls' song "Don't you wish your girlfriend was hot like me?" and stupid ads that portray women as ditzy, lustful morons who like boys, shoes and pretty-coloured tampons. I'm tired of people with influence and the media telling women that infidelity is ok as long as it's you getting the guy and not being dumped by him and that it's ok to be a piece of meat as long as you think you're all that. And the fact that children of like 8 years old can buy bras and g-strings. Way to keep children pure!

    First of all I admire you, and hope there are more truth seakers like you.

    as to what i feel offensive, is when someone brings up a bigotted stereotype about islam being retro and violent, it affects me by making me feel bad by not giving him/her the truth about the islamic faith, and how it's a comprehensive perfect way of life.

    Antisemitism, racism, crude descriptions of sex, to name a few. These things make me cringe and question the intelligence of the person. I don`t think I`m a prude for this, I can be quite silly at times too.

    Honestly, not a whole lot. I'd have to say generalized slander against a group of people--whether I'm in that group or not. That and picking on people for their problems over which they have no control. (I'm hot on that one right now.)

    I tend to get very defensive. The hackles go up...

    all the new racism pointed at caucasians and that we are keeping people down.

    I find having my political leaders profess their nonsensical beliefs in order to pander to the ignorant extremists offensive, and then they create laws that affect me based on religious nonsense.
