Opinion: Whatever I said, I’m sorry

Why is there a constant pressure to say not what we feel, but what we should say? I find it slightly amusing that in a world of free speech, we must constantly tip-toe around any possibly offensive comments. Yes, I too am one of those people who rail against verbal oppression, but really I’m just asking everybody to stop getting their panties in a twist.
