    taking umbrage

    No where in the US Constitution are citizens guaranteed the right to not be offended.
    "The public is wonderfully tolerant. It forgives everything except genius."

    "Live and Let Live" is an excellent, tree-hugging philosophy, but it doesn't do much when the ones you refuse to kill are dragging you down with them.

    If it's raining outside I'll take an umbrage regardless of what the constitution says.

    If you try to please everybody, you wind up pleasing nobody

    For some bizarre reason, I found this to be particularly relevant to this line of thought.

    Would that offend you?

    'Not bizarre, to my mind. This is the time of year when umbrage from other people's religious practices really ramps up making that link perfectly apropos. It goes along perfectly with Stephen Fry's succinct take (possibly offensive *hehe* verbiage) on the topic.

    Many Gen' X'ers spent a good deal of energy trying to offend anyone and everyone. I never got it but then trolling for trolling's sake is still incomprehensible to me. Apparently my generation succeeded because once the Y2K catastrophe failed to materialize, the nation's new favorite past-time seemed to become taking umbrage. Yay, us?

    Just a small aside - You know you're doing something right when some otherwise casual yet artful textual scribblings can send an otherwise literate individual enthusiastically journeying to the dictionary twice within the same span of ten seconds.

    I never really understood why anyone would feel the need to lash out and demean themselves in the eyes of decent folk, and I don't really want to think about what led them to the conclusion that it was their only option at that point in that particular social interaction, whatever it may have been.
