    I don't care if you're offended, no one owes you an opinion that fits in with your world view. This pandering to people's discomfort with offense has led to polarised conversations on subjects people haven't even bothered to educate themselves in.

    If I can work out your opinion on climate change from your foreign policy positions, you are a robot.

    Disagree with this. The silencing of views that may offend has led to a homogeneity of "acceptable" opinion on many contentious issues.

    Absolutely. If most of your views are entirely predictable after just hearing one or two, then the overwhelming chances are that you are a moron.
