The way I see it, when someone tells you something is offensive you have 2 choices.

  1. Dig your heels in, lash out at everyone around you and leave in a fit of rage so your ego will remain unscathed and you won't have to change anything or suffer the mild embarassment of admitting you were wrong.

  2. Listen to the marginalized people who are expressing to you that they are hurt by your choice of words, engage in self analysis, grow as a person, use the experience to better yourself and your community.

Which one of these 2 choices is worthy of a leftist who wants to foster a better world for all?
