    Serious question: is this a thread where you are saying you are offended that people find you offensive?

    Views may offend but not affect. Actions based on those views may affect others. So views never acted upon in any way are harmless, except maybe to the holder of the view.

    But how often is that the case that they are never acted upon or influencing an action of the holder of said views? I would wager that viewpoints always color actions. that is the issue,

    Question: Is it your mission to delegitimized every view you oppose on this site?

    You seek me out and constantly attack me.

    Who is the "you" referenced here? I have no idea what your view is on anything.
    I can see how some views (not necessarily yours) can upset some people. Views (aka beliefs) inform one's actions. Wrong headed beliefs can cause harmful actions. Again, not saying yours are harmful....I don't know what they are.
