LGBTQ Blogger Joins "Offended Anonymous" After Admitting To Outrage Addiction
Perry Timson, founder of Closet Escape, an online resource for people in the LGBTQ community, is a blogger who is often first to the scene of an action that can be perceived as a violation of gay people. Recently he was the first blogger to chastise Twitter CEO, Jack Dorsey for purchasing lunch at Chick-fil-a, whose founder had made statements a few years ago supporting traditional marriage. Dorsey ended up apologizing to the LGBTQ community for spending money at a Christian restaurant during "Gay Pride Month."
"It hit me as I read Jack's apology that I was now offended by both sides of the gay debate," reveals a weeping Timson. "A couple of years ago I was outraged when a Christian baker did not bake a cake for a gay couple. Now I'm outraged when a Christian restaurant serves fried chicken sandwiches to a pro-gay CEO. I'm a freak. Apparently I am offended by what I consider to be injustice AND also that which I consider to be the right thing. I'm upset when a Christian withholds services. I'm upset when they offer services. I'm addicted to being offended. I couldn't go on like that. So I joined a group."
"'Offended Anonymous' is growing by leaps and bounds. We are seeing waves of liberal millennials join," says Mark Anderson, a local group leader. "Studies show the addiction to being offended is extremely strong. 92% of our members say when they wake up in the morning they need a reason to be offended before they need a cup of coffee. Yes... they actually want something more than coffee. They literally can't function if they aren't outraged about something. Our goal is simple... To get them to be offended at being so easily offended."
