He Said That? 3/21/19

From Stephen Fry (born 1957), English comedian, actor, writer, presenter, and activist, “I saw hate in a graveyard,” The Guardian, 5 June 2005:

It’s now very common to hear people say, ‘I’m rather offended by that.’ As if that gives them certain rights. It’s actually nothing more… than a whine. ‘I find that offensive.’ It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. ‘I am offended by that.’ Well, so fucking what.”

  2. You have no rights you cannot assert. If someone takes away that right and you do not or cannot shoot them in response to the taking, it was never a right but a privilege instead, temporarily granted to you by someone else.
