A Pew Research Center survey of U.S. adults found that 84% of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents think that people getting too easily offended by other people's comments represents a major problem in America, while only 50% of Democrats and Democrat-leaners felt that way.

Similarly, the survey found that just 40% of Republicans and Republican-leaners think that people making remarks that are very offensive to others is currently a major problem in the nation, while 63% of Democrats and Democrat-leaners consider this to be a major problem.

Overall, the survey, which was carried out in July, found that 65% of U.S. adults think that people getting too easily offended by what others say is a major problem.

The survey also found that 53% of U.S. adults believe that individuals making comments that are very offensive to other people represents a major problem in the nation.

Many Americans strongly advocate for the importance of upholding the right to free speech, including speech that some people may even find deeply offensive.

Many have also been critical of the cancel culture movement and of big tech companies that censor certain kinds of speech.

When it comes to the tenets of the transgender movement, even stating biological facts has been deemed unacceptable.
