Neologism :: Offenditarian

I married two words together to create a single word sorely missing from our sociopolitical language:

Offenditarian: One who has made it a significant aspect of their personality to be offended on behalf of others. This is expressed when the offenditarian encounters a perceived or real slight that is directed at someone other than them. This coinage is a combination of “offended” and “humanitarian”.

    I coined “oobo” (offended on behalf of) to describe the same phenomenon.
