The easily offended are, self-explanatorily, people who are easily offended. They are commonly classed as such due to how easy it is for them to get into too much of a hissy fit when they have resulted from even the slightest of offence.

This usually entails people who are, unfortunately, very easily manipulated, but includes however are not limited to religious people, ones that are far too attached to/with something (e.g: see weeaboo) or simply lifeforms that cannot handle a rational disagreement - let alone just a typical gossip.

To cause offence to the easily offended usually leads to the 'causer' having to put up with their whiny attempts to show how much pain the 'causer' has caused them, and it has been well known that the 'causer' is expected to apologise, improve upon their actions, or even make up for the altercation in some way - when clearly, it's the easily offended's fault.
You: God is really great, he is really motivational and being Christian really helps me get on with life!
Me: Yeah, I guess. But here's a theory - I've read the bible. At points it claims that 'The Lord' is Jesus, and that 'The Lord' is God. Which is it? Don't you think that's a prime example of hypocrisy?
You: ...Don't say that about my religion! God has helped me so much, and Jesus died for our sins!
Me: Oh, my bad, I didn't realise you were part of the easily offended (!)

A quote by Machiavelli. What it really means is it is not necessary to feel at a loss when forced to suffer the presence of those who are easily offended. Because those who are easily offended are also easily manipulated.
Feminist: How could you not know women only make 77 cents on the dollar compared to men? Are you stupid or something? You gutless male swine!
Me: Forgive me madam, I'm just not as well versed in economics as someone with a gender studies degree.
Feminist: Oh I'm sorry, it's just that I get kinda angry sometimes!
Me: No worries, what you say sounds so complex it goes over my head. My friend Steve on the other hand, well, he's always making misogynistic jokes I'm sure he could benefit from your insight.
Feminist: Where is he?The bastard!!
Me thinking: (Hmm, the easily offended...)
