I think a lot of times some people misinterpret "I think what you said was offensive" as "I am offended with what you said". They sound similar but are not really the same thing.

Like maybe the person calling you out isn't actually as hypersensitive as you think and they are just letting you know that you sounded like a jackass and perhaps you might want to work on that.

And if that upsets you maybe that person isn't the sensitive one, or at least the *only* sensitive one.

I dunno.
