Jaki, don't you think this generation makes racist/homophobic comments just because they don't have problems with black pleople or homosexuals? I mean, if I don't have anything against you, I'll made jokes about you (good jokes btw :p).
"And from that day you became a fag like Eddy from SS7" was in TT this end of afternoon beginning of evening.
Btw. Today is Eddy's birthday <3 Divo.
this young generation who has "no problem with homosexuality" yet still act and talk homophobic daily, aren't racist and even united again racist yet looooove racist jokes/insults/stereotypes, aren't sexist because that's only old people yet slut shame everything that walks....
Send them over to me imma teach them a thing of two.
I guess the thing is: the people who say that things don't have a dimension that the comments may hurt someone.
I never saw racists or homophobics joking about their victims. On the contrary. They said mean things in order to "liberate" all their hate.
Do you often hear people making jokes about straight people ? Do you often hear jokes about working men ? Do you know many stereotypes about white males ? Always the same minorities getting laughed at, there is a reason.
Laugh is a weapon, Rod. It is often used to decriminate and descredit. When I rant about patriarchy, racism, sexism or LGBT's issues it is because I stand for equal rights. When people laugh at me for ranting and "caring too much" or "being too sensitive", they are discrediting my opinion instead of listening and by doing so they are supporting the issue I am ranting about.
Of course I also stands for freedom of speech and everybody is entitled of their own sense of humor, but I'm also free to call people out on their bullshit and intolerance
