You got that right, I'm astounded so many people call for censorship and cry about "harmful" speech not to mention the absurd claim that misgendering is an act of violence. Bitch, please....get out of the house and experience some real violence and you'll never say that again
I have a last name that was ridiculed from seemingly the moment I came out of the womb because my first memories are of kids chasing me down the street telling me they were going to kill me. I experienced all kinds of nonsense and as a kid, it scared the crap out of me, hurt my feelings, etc, etc...then I woke up one day, grew a pair and realized I didnt give a flying fuck what any idiot says to me or about me and at that moment I was freed from allowing others to effect how I chose to feel.
Offense is s choice and you're a fool if you give power to other peoples words.
The world will never cater to your fragile sensibilities so suck it up and focus on you and if you give power to anyones words, make sure it from those who care about you. Strangers words are meaningless and often times, they just want to get a rise out of you, so laugh it off, let it roll off your back and go about your day. Its liberating as hell when you genuinely give zero fucks and feel actual pity for someone so shallow and miserable they have to resort to slinging insults.
I wish there was a way these fragile souls could come to the same conclusions, we'd all be better off
