To me, telling someone you're offended by something is warning them. You're giving them a red flag so they (hopefully) won't continue to offend you, potentially causing problems.

Responding to said warning with "Well, so ******* what?" is not only going to cause tension between you and whoever you're talking to, but you're also making yourself look like a ******* prick.

Anyone who uses this quote to justify being an ass probably lacks any real social skills.

So... offending someone isn't a problem? I am free to call everyone some form of slur and not care that they may be offended? ***************** .

Seriously, **** that quote, only assholes will ever care to say such a thing.

Nobody has the right to 'not be offended', if you get offended that's your problem. It's your own emotional reaction and it's your responsibility to get over it, it's not everyone elses responsibility to make you feel better. Eat some concrete and harden the **** up.

What of the people who get offended when someone expresses their offence? Do the same rules not apply?

You can say something that offends me. Sure, freedom and all.
But surely those same freedoms allow me to say, 'Cool - but I find that offensive'.

I don't have a right not to be offended
You don't have a right to prevent me from expressing my offence.

It goes both ways.

This is stupid, so if someone tells another person that they're an ugly cunt and they say they're offended because it hurt them psychologically the first person is right? The thing the person replied with actually has meaning and the asshole in the scenario should realize that what they said is not okay (Even if it's true or if it's their own opinion.).

Stephen Fry gets offended by homophobes all the ******* time though.

Similarly, there are a large number of people who believe quotes on the internet dictate whether or not a concept has merit

Well, so ******* what?
