A study conducted by a Professor at San Diego State University has discovered that people who are easily offended make terrible employees because they never get anything done.
The study, conducted by Dr. Jeremy Berneth, involved asking almost 400 employees, aged 25.9 on average, across seven US colleges about different events that have recently gotten “substantial media attention”.
The study notes that the events consisted of “17 items developed to assess the proclivity to be offended, eight moral outrage items, 11 microagression items and nine political correctness items.”
It noted that some people have a high “proclivity to be offended” (PTBO), which the study describes as “a state-like tendency to be sensitive to customarily innocuous societal events and traditions,” for example “playing of the United States’ National Anthem.”
Those with a high PTBO have a “tendency to view an array of events and/or traditions as offensive.”
They also “are likely to feel that social events or traditions to which they take offense also violate moral or equitable standards,” the study notes.
Basically, they’re easily triggered by anything.
Dr Berneth found that high PTBOs are less productive, because they are constantly worrying about how the organisations they work for are “less fair,” than everywhere else, and they “consume a lot of time complaining about trivial matters.”
“The person offended by everyday occurrences diverts important and limited cognitive resources away from the client (and potential sale) towards a task-irrelevant stimuli.” the study notes.
The study also notes that the easily offended are less concerned with helping others, despite constantly engaging in virtual signalling to suggest that is their primary goal.
The study notes that while “their prescriptive morality dictates helping and providing for others”, they are actually less likely to engage in “citizenship behavior”.
The study noted that “PTBO negatively correlated with task performance and positively correlated with counterproductive work behaviors, suggesting not only that these individuals engage in fewer citizenship behaviors but also engage in behaviors managers and organizations want their employees to avoid.”

Outrage As George Floyd Exhibit Is Opened At HOLOCAUST MUSEUM
“Can someone explain why a Holocaust museum has an exhibit for anything other than the Holocaust?”
The Holocaust Museum in Florida has received backlash after announcing the opening of an exhibition concerning George Floyd, the man whose death in police custody sparked a resurgence of violent riots earlier this year.
Orlando 6 reports that “A new exhibit at the Holocaust Memorial Resource & Education Center in Maitland features powerful and inspiring photos taken in the wake of George Floyd’s death.”
“In the wake of George Floyd’s murder, we felt it was important to bring the meaning of the aftermath to our museum,” a statement on the museum’s website declares.
“Come face-to-face with stunning images and powerful words captured in the aftermath of the George Floyd murder, at the scene, by renowned photographer and storyteller John Noltner,” it continues.
Assistant Executive Director of The Holocaust Memorial Resource & Education Center of Florida, Lisa Bachman, said in a statement: “You don’t just see this exhibit. You feel it.”
“The expressions and thoughts of each person photographed tells a story that has a very universal message. It is one that can heal and bring us together. It shows us we are not alone in our thinking,” Bachman added.
Observers wondered what on earth Floyd’s case has to do with the genocide of six million Jews at the hands of Nazis.

Rock Bottom: Boulder To Be Removed After Students Complained It Is Racist
Let’s get the rock outta here!
A large rock in the campus of Wisconsin-Madison University is to be removed after the student’s union there declared that it is racist.
Not content with removing statues of actual people, the woke mob has now seemingly turned its attention to inanimate objects.
It appears that some bright spark unearthed a news clipping from the 1920s that referred to the large rock as a “n***erhead,” and all hell broke loose.
The Wisconsin State Journal reports:
UW-Madison is moving forward on a plan to remove a boulder from Observatory Hill after calls from students of color who see the rock as a painful reminder of the history of racism on campus.
The 70-ton boulder is officially known as Chamberlin Rock in honor of Thomas Crowder Chamberlin, a geologist and former university president. But the rock was referred to at least once after it was dug out of the hill as a “n***erhead,” a commonly used expression in the 1920s to describe any large dark rock.
The Wisconsin Black Student Union called for the rock’s removal over the summer. President Nalah McWhorter said the rock is a symbol of the daily injustices that students of color face on a predominantly white campus.
McWhorter also faulted the Wisconsin State Journal for printing the vulgarity in a 1925 news article.
The report notes that the press clipping from 95 years ago was the only time that anyone has ever referred to the rock using the term.
As Def Leppard famously posited in their 1992 number one hit, ‘Let’s get the rock outta here!’
The university’s campus planning committee voted unanimously that the boulder should be removed, but has not worked out what they are going to do with it.
Perhaps they should put it in a museum along with other racist horrors including (but not limited to) The US Constitution, Any term with the word ‘black’ in it, Chess, Vikings, Clowns, SpongeBob Squarepants, and time itself.
