Arturo the gorilla
  • Description

    Just a comment on the tyranny of offence. The idea that people have a right to not be offended. Offence is used to control what people can say.
    I would rather be offended a hundred times by what you say than to give you the right to shut me up even once.
    You can either have freedom of speech or freedom from offence, but you can't have both.

    There's a problem.

    What now?

    It seems that some people were offended by the last comic strip.

    Really?

    Well, you wrote in a poop joke. Some people don't like that kind of thing.

    Jeez, it was just a joke.

    The lawyers would like to speak to you.

    Great.

    I would suggest that you bring a lubricant.

    @JRMarklin: I disagree. If I do not have the right to say offensive things then I do not have freedom of speech. It is a well established principle in law that the legal protection of speech is intended to protect offensive speech because non-offensive speech does not need to be protected. In other words, if what I say does not offend anyone why would it need to be protected?

    No estoy de acuerdo. Si yo no tengo el derecho de decir cosas ofensivas entonces no tengo la libertad de expresión. Es un principio bien establecido en la ley que la protección jurídica de expresión tiene por objeto proteger el discurso ofensivo porque el discurso no ofensiva no necesita ser protegido. En otras palabras, si lo que digo no ofender a nadie, ¿por qué lo necesita para estar protegido?

    I believe that freedom should not extend to offenses
    Yo creo que la libertad no se debe extender a las ofensas
