Things that make you uncomfortable, part II

At long last, the second part of the Uncomfortable Situations poll.

So is the first a "I feel uncomfortable ... [when people say fag/I see morbidly obese people/etc]" and the last "I feel offended when [people say fag/I see morbidly obese people/etc]"?

e.g. I'm not sure which is agreeing or disagreeing. If that makes sense...? Ummm.
No, the last part is you're offended (or think it's stupid) that someone would feel uncomfortable around morbidly obese people, or whatever.
