> If you hold up two fingers in the UK and someone tells you it is offensive, you stop doing it.

Wouldn't this be more analogous to people from the UK coming into a typically US-centric area and complaining about US people holding up two fingers?

I agree that it's wrong, but change will probably be slow...

It's like the US trying to attract more UK people by telling them not to be offended by rude gestures, instead of stopping.
