Is it ever reasonable to take offense at facts?
I found myself feeling offended by something I was reading today. I stepped back for a moment and upon rereading, realized that the offending post was factual. Not somebody spewing their ignorant opinions…just unpleasant facts I’d rather not be reminded of.
So is it ever reasonable to take offense at facts? Or is it just the perception of an agenda behind the use of those facts (whether one is actually present or not) that causes offense? Can facts be wielded in a sinister way, or are they innately objective?
