  1. I can’t help but think many get offended over the most silliest things, snowflakes are everywhere. Eventually we’ll get to a point where breathing will be offensive.

      Isn't getting offended over other people getting offended over silly things a kind of silly thing itself?

      But here you are, offended that people are offended.

      @DreamSaturn I ain’t offended i’m just wondering why we have people like this who do such things. I’m merely just exercising my freedom of thought and speech about a topic that’s very relevant in today’s world.

      What are these “silly things” you see people get offended over?

    6. Tefutakato

      @KHCast Glad you asked. One would be “cultural appropriation”, not sure if you heard about it. But it’s complete nonsense if you ask me.

      What in particular did you say? Because a lot of the times, how you say things is equally as important.

      Exercising freedom of thought and speech isn’t always the wisest course of action. Discretion is a thing and should be used.

      @Kiah If you limit what you can say then what’s the point of having a free country? Rights and freedoms are there for a reason you know. 

    11. DreamSaturn

      DreamSaturn

      No one is saying that you can't say those things, but you have to ask yourself if you have to say it or if it would be smart to. Exercising restraint is important.

      @DreamSaturn People say what they like to say, sometimes it’s not what people want to hear and that’s fine. Getting a point across is what every human being does. Nothing wrong with that at all.

      How you say things is equally important as what you're trying to say. Telling someone, "Hey dummy, you have shit on your face." would generally earn you some angry stares, but saying "Hey dude, you have a little...uh thing right there" would generally earn you gratitude.

      Same message, different presentation.

      @DreamSaturn It all really depends on the context. If the person was a dummy to get shit on their face. Then obviously they’d be told that. If it was an accident it’d be a different story, most likely they’d probably get a friendly reminder of the crap on their face or a few laughs. Everyone’s responses are different, most of the time it’s all in good spirit.

      You get what I'm saying, though?

      Being a jerk doesn't score you any points.

      This is what I mean by discretion. There is no thing as absolute freedom when it comes to speech. That’s why laws are made on the matter as there are limits and on a more relevant level why I strike people here on SSMB. Because you can’t always go around saying what you want to. Especially if isn’t tactful and even worse. 

    17. DreamSaturn

      DreamSaturn

      Freedom of Speech means that the government can't persecute you for what you say.

      SSMB and other private bodies are not the Government. You can say those things, but the people running the place reserve the right to show you the door.

      @DreamSaturn They don’t scare me, they can ban me if they want. I have other social media accounts. Losing access to my SSMB wouldn’t be the end of the world you know. What’s so important about a fictional anthropomorphic character, nothing at the end of the day. 

      @Kiah Opinions and words are just that. Opinions and words. Sure some talk out of their asses but sometimes it can be true or false depending on what you believe. If you silence those who speak their minds about stuff that absolutely matters to them then it’s completely cowardice and unfair to the ones who want their voices to be heard. Learning the views of others is completely healthy, agreeing or disagreeing is completely fine too. 

    19. DreamSaturn

      The point isn't to scare you. The point is to tell you that freedom of speech doesn't mean that you can say and do whatever the hell you want wherever you want.

    20. KHCast

      No one would sympathize is someone that for example said “gays need to be burned because they’re sinning” was silence. Would you? Would you call that unfair and defend his right if he was banned for saying that?

    21. Kiah

      I’m not sure why you aren’t getting what we are trying to tell you. You can’t go around doing whatever and saying whatever you want to. Especially without consequences. Opinions and words have meaning and can have a negative impact on others hence the limits to free speech. 

      Learning the viewpoints of others can be healthy but isn’t necessarily always such. By the reactions of everyone commenting in this status this isn’t one of those instances. 

      No one is trying to silence you. Not everything we think needs to be said especially if it will offend others plain and simple. Discretion and even consideration for others as well as restraint needs to be exercised. 

      And for the record no one was threatening you. As you know I’m a moderator here and I just brought up me striking (and even banning) people for saying things that shouldn’t of been said because it is relevant to this exact situation. Actions come with consequences. This should be a given at this stage in our lives especially as adults.

      @DreamSaturn Technically you do have the freedom to say whatever you like. We’re not robots, we’re human fucking beings with brains who say whatever at the end of the day. @KHCast You have the freedom to say what you wish, it is not supposed to matter sure you get some hateful speech from some assholes but that’s their own shameful opinion. Learn to let that shit go in the ear and out the other. They don’t know any better, stuff like that happened in the past the past is over no need to bring it up. 

      I mean some disagree with the homosexual lifestyle nothing wrong with that. A lot of faiths do Christianity, Judaism, Islam and a bunch of other faiths. I’m not saying there’s no bad apples in these groups, yes there is but there are some who are loving people who totally disagree with the lifestyle and i understand why.

      Okay so clearly the point I was making went way over your head. " Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. "
      In short, the government cannot persecute you for what you say. It does not, however, mean that you are free from the consequences of what you say. Just as you would have the right to kick me out of your house if I walked in and acted like an asshole, the same rule applies.

    24. Tefutakato

      @DreamSaturn If there’s no true freedom of speech and thought then we might as well change it into “The Limited Freedom of Speech and Thought”. So what your saying is the law can’t do anything to you but people can. Everyone has different ways to look at certain topics and issues, not everyone is gonna have the same exact feelings and morals as you it’s just the way the world works. Nobody has the right to force you to practice the same beliefs you practice that’s why freedom of choice is there to let us do whatever we please despite the consequences. It’s all up to you how you want to behave and act. It’s basically free will.

    25. DreamSaturn

      DreamSaturn

      Your actions and words will carry consequences and that's the entire point you're missing here.

      I'm not sure what's so hard to understand about this.

      'kay, this has run its course.

      I think you need to actually read and understand what people are saying. Yes, you are free to say what you want. That doesn't mean everyone else has to put up with it or not call what you say into question. That's how it works. What you say doesn't just exist in a vacuum.
