What is freedom of expression? Without the freedom to offend, it ceases to exist.
When you start writing about the stuff that is the central experience of your own life, you can talk about whatever you want, in whatever way you want.
If you live in free countries, you don't have to spend all your life arguing about freedom because it is all around you. It seems redundant to make a lot of noise about something when, in fact, there it is. But if someone tries to remove it, it becomes important for you to formulate your own defenses of it.
