- Oy – Nutters…
It won’t be long – it’s a generational reaction to ‘Lad Culture’ of the previous generation which was a reaction to the ‘new romantic’ generation before who reacted blah blah blah you get the picture.
The biggest problem with “peak offence” is that proper offensive arseholes will always claim their caustic views are okay because everyone is offended by everything these days.Posted 6 months ago

Quite. Could also go a little “boy who cried wolf” really. Everyone will be so dulled to the concept of what actually is offensive by everything being called offensive that the really offensive stuff will just slide in there. Not a good thing.Posted 6 months agoCougarSubscriber
TBH, it’s not really the name that’s offensive in and of itself so much as the combination of the name and the image. Y’know, if you were trying really hard to be offended. A slight change of artwork would fix that right up.
I’d be more concerned about M&Ms’ lawyers myself.
Dime bar? Dime… bar?
My first thought also. “That bloke’s a nutter. Oi! Nutter!”Posted 6 months agoaracerSubscriber
Another proud nutter here. As a white hetero male it’s nice for a change to be quite legitimately outraged at people who aren’t in my group deciding that I should be offended by something I’m not. 😉
I’ve tried really hard to work out why I should be offended – maybe it’s because my brain doesn’t quite work right that I don’t get it. Yes there are all sorts of stigma associated with mental health issues which make life more difficult than it might be, but the wording on a packet of sweets really isn’t one of them.Posted 6 months agoEsmeSubscriber
I reckon SNICKERS are more suitable snacks for you lot 😉

As someone who has done bits of work for MH services this is really the issue. It’s poking fun at the crazies.
As someone who has mild depression, suffers from OCD and compulsive self-destructive behaviour patterns, ICGAS.
As someone who has severe bulimia I could nom 10 packs of those right now!! Much choccy cheapness.Posted 6 months agolazlowoodbineMember
You’d have to be mental to be offended by that!
People shouldn’t be so damn precious. Perhaps if they spent their time getting offended by something real like, oh I don’t know, enforced “equality” and “tolerance” which actually does nothing but create more prejudice and ever-widening-divides in society for example, then maybe I’d give half a shit what they’re moaning about. Whinging, self righteous turds..Posted 6 months agomonkeysfeetSubscriber
