When people play the victim card and bend over backwards to be as offended as possible when they really aren't. Using hissy fits, political correctness, character assassination, and a false sense of moral authority, the outrager hopes to gain power and public recognition for their brave act of justice as well as a sense of control over their meaningless existence. Often accompanied by demands for financial compensation for their "pain and suffering".
"Why do we have warning labels that say 'Contains peanuts' on peanut jars and 'Contains milk' on milk cartons? Can't we just go back to using common sense instead of having to litigate everything in fear of lawsuits?"
