Do you confront them about it or do you let it slide?

Depends on the situation/context.

It does depend on the situation but I personally confront people when they are crossing the line, not in an aggressive way just enough to be clear.

There is only one way to tell someone to shut up.

Depends. If it’s something racist or homophobic I will speak up eg. ‘That isn’t right’ or ‘I don’t agree with that’ but not in an aggressive way. I’m not really one for confrontation.

If it’s an insult towards me, I’m usually so taken aback that I end up not saying anything and I guess ‘letting it slide’. Especially if it’s a stranger. If it’s a friend, I am more likely to say something, although my friends don’t say horrible things (unless it’s a joke) because well, they’re my friends.

I’d let it slide, I’d rather not escalate the situation and I can easily ignore them and not take them seriously. Though I do speak up against homophobia because it’s REALLY prevalent in my school. It’s really rare to find someone who isn’t homophobic in my school.

Depends on

severity (small remarks I don't want to waste the oxygen in arguing)
whether it was justified or not (some offensive things could be justified if it was a small specific point)
if it was within a professional workplace/event (time and place for everything including reactions)
