Nobody likes being told what to do. But we can shrug most of it off.
“I like your hair better short.”
“Maybe not the red tie?”
“You should do your lawn like this.”
“Your breath stinks, man! Chew some gum or something!”
No big deal.
But when it comes to questions of morality or right or wrong? Things that we maybe should be willing to listen to outside input about?
“You know, maybe sleeping with fifteen girls a week, sans protection, isn’t the best idea.”
“Fraud is wrong. Knock it off or I’m turning you in.”
“Crack is wack, yo.”
We go nuclear!
The mere mention of anything touching these dimensions can make even the most self-proclaimed, brave, “I-never-get-offended” free-speech proponent go bonkers and try to shut you up.
