You have to factor in the millions of years old, adrenaline fueled, fight or flight aggression responses that virtually all humans are hardwired for, that in our modern culture frequently arise in response to the most innocuous comment or insignificant slight.

People being ignorant offends me, not words.

Actually, thats not true, I can become very offended based on what someone says, or even more so depending on who they say it to, but it isn't words, its the actual content of what is being said.

very true. but if many people can control it, why can't we all? and like i've said, offense is more a Moral thing, or simply, more a psychological thing, than a physical confrontational thing. You get offended in your head because you take something so seriously that you cannot either joke about it, or just ignore it!

why?

isn't a direct attack against you, more "offensive" than one against the group you belong to by a happenstance of birth?

No, if someone says '**** the Irish, you are all alcoholic sheep shagging cunts' I don't get offended. Words, shit, ****, spic, paddy, etc. I don't even notice, but if someone comes up to a particular freind of mine who is quite delicate and says even 'Youre a bitch' to her that will get me very offended. Dangerously offended.

Someone insulted me based on my brothers mental condition a few weeks back and I blacked out due to rage. I went from standing in the aisle of a bus exchanging words with someone to being pinned down by the bus driver and one of my friends, while screaming my ass off at the guy who was stumbling off the bus with his hands up to his head, leaving a trai of blood. I still don't remember what happened in between times, but I had to be dragged away from the scene and up the road by my friend, and it still took a good five minutes for him to calm me down.

I won't find any images you can throw at me offensive, any combination of words, but still, certain things can easily throw me over the edge, but it isn't what is being said, its the context.

Ignorance is the thing that I hate most, people who refuse to educate themselves, o maybe when people know they are wrong and refuse to admit it or try to put a spin on it, that always gets me.

Arrgh I'm not explaining myself well, too hungover.

Also, its not contradicting myslelf if I say "Actually, thats not true"
