why is almost everyone so sensitive today?

i made a joke (well it was a question mixed with a joke) here a while back and someone got all mad at me for it and stopped being my friend because of it. the joke was "If you take an Asian person and spin him around several times does he become disoriented?" i was called racist for it even tho it was a harmless joke. Asians are called orientals too so like...yeah. but is what i said really that wrong? it was only a joke.

although sensitivity has gotten more vocal when it comes to racial jokes like that since the 80's to early 2000's, everyone is sensitive. there are lots of people that can't take jokes on certain things and even if you find it irritating because you like the joke, just respect them. don't say it around them. if your friends don't have the same style of humor as you and it gets to extreme points like breaking up the friendship, stay in your lane and try not to make friends like See More▼

nah just be you and try to make jokes with the right people lol
luckily jokes really are harmless so your argument is valid, but probably better to be careful by knowing your audience
