'I STILL Find That Offensive!' [9781785904165]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

NEW AND UPDATED EDITION OF THE BOOK THAT INTRODUCED THE TERM `SNOWFLAKE'

When you hear that now ubiquitous phrase `I find that offensive', you know you're being told to shut up. While the terrible murder of the Charlie Hebdo cartoonists demonstrated that those who offend can face the most brutal form of censorship, it also served to intensify the pre-existing climate that dictates we all have to walk on eggshells to avoid saying anything offensive - or else.

Indeed, competitive offence-claiming is ratcheting up well beyond religious sensibilities. So, while Islamists and feminists may seem to have little in common, they are both united in demanding retribution in the form of bans, penalties and censorship of those who hurt their feelings. But how did we become so thin-skinned?

In this new and updated edition of her book `I Find That Offensive!' Claire Fox addresses head on the possible causes of what is fast becoming known as `Generation Snowflake' in a call to toughen up, become more robust and make a virtue of the right to be offensive.
AUTHOR: Claire Fox is the director of the Institute of Ideas, which she established in 2000 to create a public space where ideas can be contested without constraint. A former member of the Revolutionary Communist Party, she convenes the yearly Battle of Ideas festival, established the prestigious nationwide Debating Matters competition for sixth-form students and co-organises the Institute of Ideas' residential summer school, The Academy: `University as it should be'. A panellist on BBC Radio 4's The Moral Maze, Claire is regularly invited to comment on developments in culture, education and the media on television and radio programmes such as Question Time and Any Questions? She is also a columnist for the Times Educational Supplement and Municipal Journal.
