Can someone say something so dumb that it qualifies as an assult?

Have you ever been in a situation with someone, usually a boomer, and they say something so incredibly stupid that it actually makes the people around them a little dumber for having heard it?

Like the thing that the boomer said was so f___ing dumb that it actually murders you, but just a tiny bit. Like it murders a bit of your sanity for having to listen to something so stupid, because you can't even believe that someone could actually be that dumb?

@BennytheJet,
Yes Benny. Here, with some regularity.

What is an 'assult'? You could mean 'insult' or 'assault'.

@Mame,
Perhaps assault on intelligence? I find a lot of people misuse the term "boomer" these days. Boomer used to be synonymous with "middle aged". The very youngest boomers turn 57 this year with the oldest in their mid-70's.

@engineer,
Calling someone a boomer is an insult these days. It's like saying 'OK, Karen". It's meant in a disrespectful manner. Notice that was his generation of choice. But BJ is an angry younger man, so this is no more than I expected.

Yeah I know what you mean - like when usually a millennial says something so incredibly obtuse that it makes brain cells of the people around them die.

Like the thing that the millennial said was so simple minded that it actually causes those brain cells to implode. It causes one to just wish they could have those 30 seconds back in their life that they just wasted because no reasonably intelligent person could believe that someone could be that dull witted.

As an aside - I am what you would refer to as a cusper - right between a boomer and Gen X - not that it should matter as anyone in any generation could be dense or brilliant. Apology to millennials - just using it as an example - you can replace with any generational period insult you would like to choose.

@BennytheJet,
There is nothing you can say to me that I would consider an Assualt, The only possible exceptions would be an actual credible threat of physical violence, slander (that people believed) or violating my privacy.

You can't offend me unless I choose to be offended. And no matter how stupid your statements are, they don't hurt me at all.

In the US, there seems to be the idea that if I am offended, that it is your fault. I have never accepted this.

@maxdancona,
Who the **** downvoted me for that! That is an outrage, I can't stand this abuse. I am going to report this to the moderators. This travesty should not be allowed.

Wow people must really dislike you. There is nothing but sarcasm in this post and yet you have many down thumbs - I just upped it for you and you are still down a bit.

Weird that some can be so petty as to just down vote one post because they dislike you.

I ignore the thumbs....I see them as the equivalent of cranky 4 year olds sticking their tongues out at each other.

Words are words, assault is assault. No, words can't be an assault.
