Why would someone get offended by this? watch

    • Thread Starter

    When someone is writes an anecdote and includes the gender/race/general background of a person, I've noticed some people get so offended and say stuff like "(gender/race/background) is irrelevant"?

    It is definitely relevant, and we're obviously not picking on said person because of it... it's just a handy thing to know so we can create an image in our heads and leads to good story telling.

    Honestly PC gets on my nerves.
Are you going to a festival?
