    Re: Report: Lego To Stop Production Of ‘Star Wars’ Set Due To Anti-Muslim Backlash

    Is it me or are people becoming a little too sensitive these days? When minority groups protest about things as far reaching as this, they disvalue the importance and credibility of real and blatant acts of discrimination and/or prejudice. It sort of reminds me of the story of the boy who cried wolf.

    Hardly the only ones that complains over this kind of stuff. The only reason this became a story and on these boards is because they were Muslim and it was brought forward by anti-Muslim jihadists on the right wing.

    People are getting to sensitive about things these days, whether its the logo on google.com or a lego toy set. Actually sensitive probably isn't the right word, self-righteous is a a better choice. Anyway, people need to be less sensitive and that includes being less sensitive about other people's over-sensitiveness. Yes things like wanting production of a children's toy end because it offends you is stupid, but so is going on an angry tirade about it. It requires a response certainly, but it requires a calm reasonable response.

    This is not a calm reasonable response.

    You feel free to kiss the ass of everyone else in the world, and show weakness.

    Your inability to delineate between sarcasm and an angry tirade is comical, hence your opinion here has no value.
