  1. Who defines offensive?

    Nearly every generation of older people have found the culture of younger people offensive.

    In the 20s, women cut their hair, wore pants and short skirts. They also danced lewdly.

    The top performers have usually been disparaged by older people -- Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, etc.
