Why care if it is offensive? Who's story is it? Oh yours? Then do what you want with it... Do not let any one or thing censor you because it's "Offensive" you made it, if they find it offensive... Then don't read it.... Simple.
Really p's me off when you see these complaint letters...
"I watched your entire film... all 2 hours and 30 mins of it... It was nothing but offensive from the get go..."
Then turn the freaking channel!!!! *monkey punches the person into a pulp*
lol... getting carried away my bad..
I can understand an author wanting to portray something accurately -- especially if the market you hope will buy your work knows something about the topic.
Authors who offend their audience or who write things that their audience won't believe won't necessarily do to well selling to that audience.
