A friend who is not of the art community was incredulous when she heard 'insensitive' being bandied about. It was obviously akin to religious intolerance where everywhere is deemed 'insensitive' when it does not conform to the opinions of the creed, much like the Taliban and Islamists. It is when 'insensitive' is used to stamp out contrary opinions and silence anyone that has a differing view. The sheer ridiculousness and the very real aspect to it, sadly found here, had woken her.

Ironic. Liberal is not a term you would apply to a bunch of the art folks here.
