    People don't offend.

    People decide to be offended.

    That is like blaming someone with PTSD for having the Trauma. No one would choose to feel it.

    Someone with PTSD is someone with PTSD. They do not have someone else's PTSD.

    Though I don't think that there is any blame involved. It would just be an observation of the fact.

    And I also think that it would be fair to say that PTSD is not a choice but a negative physiological/psychological condition..

    Whereas to take offence or not take offence are alternative mental choices, probably relative to an individuals preconditioning.

    You just completely shot yourself in the foot with the closing line, the word 'whereas' was negated by you completely equating it to an involuntary sensation experienced at the wounding of one's joy and/or ego (or the joy and/or ego of someone close to them).

    Can you please show me someone who opts-in to feeling offended? Don't bring up a humiliation masochist kink in BDSM, the point is they don't feel offended by what makes almost everyone else feel offended, that's why they get off on it.

    No, my foot is fine.

    I think that it is fair to say that some people actually enjoy choosing to take offence. Particularly with issues of trendy political correctness for example.

    You would find it extremely difficult, if not impossible to make me take offence. It's just not how I choose to respond.

    context of the 'offensive act/speech' is the most important element.

    The speech may well be intended to offend or invoke a particular response, or might just be an a honest personal opinion. But it still remains the choice of the recipient to either take offence or not.
    I personally find, that in such situations ignorance is a far more potent response, especially if one is confident in their own knowledge.
