Synonyms for Inoffensively:

How to use "Inoffensively" in context?

As a primarily English-speaking country, we tend to think of the word 'insult' as something that hurts our feelings. But the Oxford English Dictionary defines insult as "an expression of objection, displeasure, or contempt". Not all expressions of disapproval are hurtful, and not all expressions of contempt are insulting. Offensively, on the other hand, is an absolute must-have. It's an exceptionally polite way of saying no, and it's incredibly effective when you need to avoid conflict.
