Why some people here on hubpages answer question and than say they are offended?
How about NOT answering offending question?Or they expect all people everywhere in the world to bend for their sensitivity?
Well there are some hubbers...who are just new and can't be sports in answering questions
Well, if you only want everyone to agree with you why ask questions here? This is a public site and people will answer what they want to and give their opinion.
The way I see it is if you don't like the question, don't click on it. If you're too easily offended when asking "hard questions", don't post such questions, because you'll certainly get answers you disagree with.
Our world is really too sensative and I'm sick of it, wrote a Hub about it a while back: http://hubpages.com/hub/Human-Emotions
It seems you will always get a bad apple, whether it is in the questions section or even in your hubs. Writing is about exploring your personality and informing others. You don't have to like it, you don't even have to read it. That is the great thing about the internet... if you are too sensitive, jump over it and move on.
Good question by the way... especially since I am feeling rather sensitive after a rude comment from an overly sensitive person earlier today! This question knocked it right on the head!
In all the time I've been answering the occasional question, I think I only did that once - and it happens it was within the last week or so. I'm not a sensitive person, and I don't expect people to "bend to my sensitivity". They can post what questions they like, but they also need to know they may get an answer they don't particularly like.
The question "in question", to which I'm referring was a matter of my wanting to speak up in the face of what appeared to me to be ignorance about a group of people. In general, I'm not someone who cares who says what that seems ignorant to me. The one exception, for me, is when someone makes what I KNOW is an ignorant remark about any group of people. Part of that "buggaboo" I have probably comes from my having a WWII-generation father, who always said, "The minute you see or hear anyone else saying anything demeans one group or another, speak up. Doing that can be like putting out a small fire before it gets more oxygen and turns into a fire so big nobody can put it out. " (He was referring to the evil ideas promoted in Germany prior to, and during, WWII.)
So, while I, personally, am not sensitive; and while I couldn't care less (usually) about who posts what offensive questions, if/when I see a question that is demeaning to one group or another (in this case, to women), I may feel moved to "speak up" and point out why I think a question is misguided or ignorant.
Also, have lived my whole life as a woman; and either paying the price for ignorance about women; or else having to be dealing with all kinds of ignorance about, or lack of respect toward, women - yes, I'm not above occasionally (as I said, it was only once, I think) "addressing" some kinds of obvious ignorance, and pointing out why it's offensive.
I don't see my answer to the question I'm referring to as a matter of my being "a bad apple". I see it as a way of at least trying to get some people to question the premise of the question - and not just accept an ignorant premise as "truth" or "fact". In the case of question I've mentioned, I tried to be generally polite; but, when it comes to people who have demeaning thinking toward other people; I'm not going to worry a whole lot if my no-nonsense answer (to a question they posted in order to get answers) particularly feeds their ego.
When I said the question was offensive, I kind of knew I was being a jerk - but it was "principle-of-the-thing" kind of thing. Still, I didn't feel bad. I felt like they had it coming.
I think that people mistake their own emotions, sometimes, for anger as opposed to worry, fear, or simple disagreement.
Most problems arise among people because the other side is not listening or reading carefully.
As for remarks about speaking to prevent nazi-like situation,I have to say that my origin is Yugoslavia,country where during world war ll 1,600,000 people died out of 15,000,000.
Among them my moms 4 uncles,my grandfather.
My grandfather was a prominent nazi resistance member.He was caught by his friends,his head was cut off and sold for big ransom.
Because of that,I have to say to people like Lisa HW-do not try to be better catholic than Pope!
I'm offended by your grammar. Seriously offended. Does that answer your question?

I imagine a few people will notice as my hubs disappear here and appear elsewhere. So I write this forum and my last hub detailing my discontent.There have been issues in the past, but nothing I would leave over. A lot of very good hubbers picked up and left Hubpages this spring and I thought they...
