Liberty means little, if freedom from offence trumps freedom to offend and * to be offended. The same people who would ridicule Muslims for being outraged at their sacred cows being mocked, are often uber sensitive to their own sacred cows being mocked; and those who would snigger at 'liberal' 'snowflakes' being triggered, often enough react disproportionately aggrieved when their own sensibilities are triggered. If one feels offended, one ought reflect upon why that is so, and reflect upon whether one's feelings ought be so precious. Edit: * Strange as it may seem, but being offended is one measure of how free one is....freedom from offence is the velvet curtain which conceals the gilded cage one's own perceptions and thinking are constrained by. Legislating freedom from offence just adds more material to that curtain. Some are content with the limited view imposed by the curtain, others are actually unaware that there is an alternative view beyond the curtain. .
