I admit I laugh at racist, sexist, homophobic and religious jokes. I’ll be the one who’s honest and gets called an asshole and a bigot. That’s OK. I think much of it is hysterical. I wish they had better racist jokes about white people. At times I feel left out. But if I admit that, does it mean I’m admiring my white privilege? Or am I suffering from “white fragility”? I forget.
This won’t be the most eloquent post I’ve ever written, that’s for sure. But, Why is everyone so easily offended these days? Why are people entitled to believe their point of view is always worthy of someone else’s respect and acknowledgement? Someone probably took offense I used the words pussy and/or God.
No shit there’s racism and bigotry everywhere! It’s on every side of the spectrum; no group is left out or unscathed. If you don’t believe that you’re either an idiot or a liar. People of every race, sex, creed and color get incredibly bent out of shape when someone, who usually doesn’t matter, says or does something they don’t agree with. #Black:LivesMatter, #WhiteLivesMatter, #BlueLivesMatter, #AllLivesMater. Apparently those hash tags are offensive to some..
Everyone has their cause, which is great because we live in America and that’s part of freedom. Except when you jam your beliefs down others throat’s, infringing upon their freedom to think, act and fell as they choose. Stop trying to force your beliefs on others. More importantly, stop being professionally offended and thinking everything is about you. (more…)
