This is about individuals and organisations can shoot themselves in the foot by being outraged or offensive where there is no slight present or an organisation gets it badly wrong trying to be right, I have a few to kick off with-

Basically there is a scene in the new Peter Rabbit film where a gang of bunnies pelt a farmer with blackberries, knowing he has an allergy and consequently has to use an EPI pen. Now some loony lefty allergy support group is up in arms saying this is trivialising the condition.
Another perspective is that it's teaching young children that allergies are serious and so are the consequences, not to mention that gang bullying is wrong.

How can the Labour party even consider excluding any group from a meeting about inclusion? I suppose there could be a delegation of white straight males from Bradford, based on them being an ethnic minority.

Come on Labour and Corbin, pull your pants up!

Rich, you should turn up and claim that you "self-identify" as under 27 and a black woman.

Seems if you are a friendly old man and "high five" a kiddie, you want to bugger them senseless. So we all have to cross that form of greeting off our lists.

A bit like this

Labour faces possible equality probe over BAME discount - BBC News

Imagine charging ethnic minority groups more money to get in somewhere. It'd be front page news for weeks. Yet this has barely got any coverage.

As bad as the tories are at the moment I'm still glad we don't have Corbyn and his special collection of marxists, racists and terrorist sympathisers in power.

Here's another snowflake easily offended.

FFS, there are bigger issues in our World that need resolving, and this dumb bint thinks this needs anyone's attention.

It obviously wasn't a woman, it was a trans gender man who happened to be wearing a dress, if it had someone in trousers then it would be a male orientated lesbian or it could have been a completely non gender aligned person, just wondering what ethnic origin was the picture of or what religion were they?
