When It’s Not a Matter of Actual Offense Rather, Ideological Inconsistency
I was once told a personal recounting of a time when the storyteller said ‘gypped’ and was told he shouldn’t say that because it was insensitive and could be offensive to gypsies.
Except they were nowhere near the company of gypsies.
So, who were they potentially in danger of offending?
Each other’s ideological sensibilities.
