Refers to both the material, things and behaviour that creates unpleasant opinions, like derogatory language and the resulting attitude held be those who take aggresive action, for example, flamebait.

Offensive material or behaviour may often be against common etiquette or classified as an expression which is against the rules. For example, the RIAA will take an offended attitude to those who consider copyright to be an offensive idea.

How we feel about offensive material may be determined by variations in culture, upbringing and education. For instance, kids shows in Japan have depicted naked figures and rape but pubic hair is considered obscene. Meanwhile, in the US, an errect penis in any media is considered very obscene and is relegated to NC-17 fair only
